Citizens group thankful for decades of leadershipPublished 11:07am Wednesday, February 13, 2013
The Concerned Citizens of the Burlington Area offer the most sincere thanks to Harriette Ramsey for 32 years of faithful service as president. I was elected as the organization’s second president.
Harriette was one of the founding members of the Concerned Citizens and to this point its only president. This group was founded in 1981 for the purpose of addressing the problem of reoccurring flooding in this historic community.
Under her leadership, the Concerned Citizens of the Burlington Area has taken on and accomplished far more then its original goal. Storm sewers have been installed and are still a work in progress. This group has taken on the upkeep of the Burlington’s Commons park. They were a leading force in procuring Burlington’s historical “Old Jail”.
Introducing the community to candidates running for elected office, sponsoring an annual community wide clean-up event, a memorial basketball tournament and holding rummage sales were a few of the events this group worked on under her guidance.
We are grateful for all her efforts and look forward to her continuing support.
