A Luxemburg couple with a family history of community service will be awarded a special recognition this Saturday. Todd and Brenda Burdick will be honored at the annual Luxemburg Area Chamber of Commerce Christmas Party. Recipients of the 2019 Community Service Award given by the chamber, the Burdicks will be featured along with three other business and community leaders. Brenda Burdick, a 15 veteran of the Luxemburg Rescue Squad and a Lions Club member, says they were very surprised and appreciative of being selected.
Brenda’s parents, Ron and Kim Vehren, won the community service award in 2012 for their involvement with the Lions Club and 4 H program. Todd Burdick retired from the Luxemburg Fire Department after 17 years and most recently ran Burdick’s Bar on Main Street for 19 years until selling it in the past year. The bar, now called the Farmhouse, was remodeled in 2016 and still prominently features area photos and pictures of local American Legion members, according to Burdick.
