Each month, Burritt on the Mountain recognizes a volunteer who goes above and beyond to assist our guests and staff.
The October Volunteer(s) of the Month award goes to Carole and Richard Hamm
Richard’s first experiences with Burritt go way back to childhood and hiking the mountain and visiting the Mansion and the few pioneer homes also on the plateau. Richard notes “It is amazing how much Burritt has grown and changed.” Carole and Richard’s volunteer involvement stems from knowing both CEO Leslie Ecklund and Development Director, Caroline Buncick. Richard has known them since early childhood.
You may have met Carole and Richard this year at several City Lights and Stars Concerts helping at the admission table and greeting everyone! They enjoy seeing familiar faces and seeing new ones too and hearing first-time visitors remark (in amazement) about the great facilities and views. They feel as if Burritt is a second home.
On one occasion, the Hamm’s made it a family affair and recruited their adult son and daughter to help. Burritt holds a special place in their heart and they like to share the experience with others. Richard noted that “Burritt is special due to the team, from the leadership of the Board and Leslie, down through the staff and volunteers. It is a joy to see everyone pulling together to make the experiences special for the visitors.”
We thank Carole and Richard for their valued time, hospitable nature and for supporting Burritt.
