It has been a pleasure to have Mary Catherine serve on the Burlington Historical Society board as a youth director. We wish her all the best as she continues her studies!
Earlier this week the Burlington Historical Society hosted Lake Garda’s second grade field trip to the Elton Tavern and Center Schoolhouse. Hands-on lessons were provided by BHS board members Barbara & Jerry Carchedi, Laurie Arel, Leslie Siek and Beth Salsedo.

The Burlington Tavern Day Logo contest is back for 2019! If you’re a local artist we’d love to see your designs. The winning logo will be printed on beer glasses and other Tavern Day promotional material. See below for contest rules.
On May 17th, BHS President Beth Salsedo and BHS Board Member Sarah McCusker accepted an award and generous donation from the Foothills Girl Scouts during their 2019 Bridging Ceremony. BHS was recognized for the years of support they have provided to the Girl Scouts in our community. Thank you and congratulations to all the girls scouts!!
