On Saturday, May 2, the Wilton Democratic Town Committee (DTC) will recognize Miller-Driscoll Building Committee co-chairs Bruce Hampson and Karen Birck for their achievements and contributions to the town of Wilton during its Annual Spring Breakfast at Trackside Teen Center, 15 Station Road.
At the event, Hampson and Birck will receive the Wilton DTC Citizen of the Year Award for their work leading the Miller-Driscoll Building Committee.
Hampson said he was surprised and honored when DTC Chairman Tom Dec called and told him he and Birck would be receiving the award.
“I had no inkling or belief that I was being considered for the award,” said Hampson. “The best honors are the ones that you don’t expect.”
Birck said she, too, was honored when she found out.
“I’m glad that a significant body in town recognized the importance of this [Miller-Driscoll] project,” she said.
Both Hampson and Birck have lived in Wilton for 24 years and have a history of community volunteer work, including serving as co-chairs of the Wilton High School Renovation Building Committee, from 2008 to 2010.
