Patch readers and friends of Al Fay came out to the library last week for our inauguration ceremony.
Thank you to everyone who attended our presentation of a plaque for Burlington's Unofficial Mayor, as voted on by Patch readers, at the Burlington Public Library last week.

We had nine nominees and after a couple weeks of voting readers chose to elect Albert Fay. The reason we held this race was to create a fun way to recognize those members of the community who have given their time and effort for the town.

Burlington Patch will be honoring Al Fay and all of the people who give back to the community with a short ceremony at the library this Wednesday.
Readers voted for him, pushed for him and then elected Al Fay Burlington's Unofficial Mayor. Now its time for the inauguration.

The event will be this Wednesday, June 13 at 11 a.m. in the Burlington Public Library.
