Harriett Bobo (October 10, 1942-July 14, 2018) was a great friend and tremendous volunteer for the Summit Historical Society. She dedicated countless volunteer hours to many of Summit County cultural and environmental organizations. She moved to Summit County in 2002 after her retirement and became involved with the National Repertory Orchestra, the Summit Foundation, the Summit Concert Band, led hikes for the Friends of the Dillon Ranger District, was an usher at the Lake Dillon Theater, and was a major donor and volunteer for the Summit Historical Society.
Harriett’s life exemplified volunteerism at its best. To honor her memory, the Society initiated this award, to be given annually at the volunteer appreciation event at the end of the summer season.
