RESERVATIONS DUE, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30TH - Marion Burrows to Receive League of
Women Voters (LWV) Whitewater Area 2015 Making Democracy Work Award
The LWV Whitewater-Area board unanimously voted to honor Marion
Burrows with the 2015 Making Democracy Work Award for her years of service as a
welcoming and informative face of democracy in the Armory on Election Day in
her role as Special Election Inspector since the early 1990s, and her
commitment to make Whitewater an enriching community in which to live through
decades of volunteer work with social service and cultural organizations.
Marion's kind and helpful demeanor and wealth of election
knowledge have benefited thousands of Whitewater citizens entering the Armory
to vote. She made sure they had what they needed before entering the poll,
confirmed voters' Ward and Aldermanic District designations, assisted with
curbside voting, and substituted at polling tables when needed. For the past 15
years, Marion spearheaded voter registration needs at Fairhaven and
Hearthstone, providing voter registration services to new residents and
assisting with the absentee voting process.
Since moving to Whitewater
in 1965, Marion has actively participated in many local volunteer
organizations, often in leadership roles. She served two 2-year terms as
President of the Emerson Club, one 2-year term as President of the Federation
of Women's Clubs, and a three-year term on the Bassett House board. Marion is a
member of Delta Kappa Gamma, a founding member and Choir Director of Community
of Christ the Servant Church, volunteers at the Young Auditorium, served on
several search committees for open UWW administrative positions, and has been a
member of the UWW Cultural Affairs Committee since 1990.
graduating from UWW in 1972 with an English major and German and Education
minors, Marion taught English at Janesville Parker High School from 1973-1990.
Marion's deep and wide-ranging history of volunteerism and elections work in
the Whitewater community exemplifies an early motto used in the fight for
women's voting rights - DEEDS NOT WORDS!

(Nov 28) The Chimney
Swifts Will Return - Weeks ago, Whitewater's flock of Chimney Swifts migrated
to South America for the winter but the completed Chimney Swift tower stands
ready for them when they return in April searching for nesting sites.
The tower can be viewed in Cravath Lake Park near
the gazebo and community building. This site was chosen to attract the Chimney
Swifts near their insect hunting ground over the lake. Already, flocks live in
Whitewater's downtown and hopefully a nesting pair will discover and occupy
this new home.
The Urban Forestry Commission extends thanks to all of
those in the community who contributed to the building of the Swift tower.
Funds are still being accepted to put up an informative sign and to purchase a
live-cam so people can watch bird activity inside the tower on their computer
screens. For the donation form .
The Swift tower will be
dedicated after the birds return in the Spring. Watch for an announcement of
the dedication and Swift viewing party.
The tower project was sponsored by the Urban Forestry
Commission. The Swift Tower Committee includes UFC Chair Karen Coburn, citizen
volunteers Virginia Coburn, Brienne Brown, Scott Weberpal and Liesl Schultz.
