Bryant Saiki

Bryant has been volunteering for six months and has over 100 hours. As a new volunteer, Bryant has embraced Burritt on the Mountain.  He has been involved with the Burritt Brigade, Folklife Festival and just recently, our holiday events.  Bryant has also helped keep the trails clean.  You may have seen him trimming the shrubs around the mansion.  So glad to have your help in the new year, too!

Congratulations and thank you for your service!

Allie Swann Summit Award

The Allie Swann Award for 2016 goes to Lowell Zoller, for his dedication to Burritt on the Mountain. Lowell has been our right arm again this year-from directing the plans and construction on the Dorothy Davidson Rosenwald Schoolhouse to advising the education staff about a geology question. Lowell usually has the answer. Sometimes even another question! Lowell pays attention to the details, some things the rest of us would not even think about. He continues to be a leader that can get things done. Thank you Lowell for your service to Burritt and the community.

Frances Sisco Award

The Frances Sisco Award for 2016 goes to Linda Duncan. Our events have been influenced by her artistic touch. This includes arrangements in the cabins for the Holiday Magic Dinners for the last three years. Linda has also helped decorate the mansion during the holiday season over the last four years. Linda has a unique eye for the creative and artistic and has shared her creative visions for many of our events. Linda has also served on the Burritt Museum Guild board and been supportive of the Guild Presidents. Her kind, quiet nature enhances her work ethic.
