Honoring Burnie Allen of Allen Lumber Co.

The Central VT Chamber of Commerce honored Burnie Allen of the Allen Lumber Company on Tuesday, September 15, 2020. Burnie and the Allen Lumber family are inaugural members of the Central VT Chamber of Commerce since its inception in 1971, and they remain a cornerstone in the Central VT communities. Allen Lumber’s banner can often be seen at many local events, particularly sporting events put on by the BYSA (Barre Youth Sports Assoc.) where Burnie coached little league and basketball for youths. Burnie has served on numerous Boards and in community-targeted clubs. Burnie, and the Allen Lumber Co’s, contributions and commitment to the Central VT communities is highly regarded. With the purchase of Allen Lumber Co. by rkMiles, the Central VT Chamber felt there was no better time to honor this man and his family’s company that have done so much to contribute to the betterment of Central VT.

Speakers included Burnie’s oldest son, Lance, and long-time friends Bob Comolli and Bob MacLeod.
