BERLIN — Vermont Center for Independent Living recently honored Burger King on the Barre-Montpelier Road in Berlin with a Rosemary J. Miller Dining for All Award.

The award is named for VCIL’s longtime receptionist, born with cerebral palsy, who retired in 2011.

VCIL Executive Director Sarah Launderville said, “We are pleased to present this award as Burger King has completed their renovation, which includes broader accessibility for folks with disabilities. We honor Burger King for access in the restaurant, closeness to the bus route and customer service being supportive to the disability community.”
