Congratulations to the July YP of the Month Hillaurie Fritz-Bonar!
YP of the Month - Hillaurie Fritz-Bonar
Employer: Art Center of Burlington
YP Member: 4 Years
Why did you join YP?
The energy is great! I like being around people my age who take pride in our community, it's really inspiring.
Which community organizations do you volunteer for?
I am on the Downtown Partners Board of Directors and A Very Vintage Market Committee. It's exciting to be a part of the revitalization of Downtown. I love seeing big crowds downtown for events like Lighted Holiday Parade, Living Windows, Old Couch Music Fest, Cynapalooza, etc. There's a passionate group of movers and shakers working hard behind the scenes to give Downtown this cool vibe. Then add in all of the facade projects, the riverfront, new businesses, the TIGER grant- these are all impressive things we should be proud of. I can't wait to see what the next 5 years bring us!
What do you enjoy most about the area?
Greater Burlington has a lot of amazing things going on right now. We're really lucky to have such great resources in our community like the Art Center and Capitol Theater. The upgrades happening at our parks (Big Hollow and Lake Geode) are exciting, too. There is always something going on!
Unique about me:
Old things make me happy! Old buildings, old cars, old photographs.
