Innkeepers are known for giving of themselves to their inns, guests, and community, but few do this as well as 8 Broads in the Kitchen’s Lynnette Scofield, William Henry Miller Inn in Ithaca, NY.
In May, the Family & Children’s Service of Ithaca presented Lynnette with the 35th annual Agda Osborn Award in grateful recognition of her numerous and outstanding contributions to Ithaca and Tompkins County through her active volunteerism and community service. Ironically, Mrs. Osborn was the owner of the home that is now The William Henry Miller Inn.
Lynnette has chaired two United Way campaigns, raising more than $3 million. She has also been involved with the Tompkins County Library Board and the Strategic Tourism Planning Board. She is currently a member of the Advisory Council of the History Center of Tompkins County and The Sciencenter and a Board member of FoodNet Meals on Wheels as well as a co-founder of Animeals, a pet food pantry.
In 2013, Select Registry named Lynnette Innkeeper of the Year for North America. In May, 2017 the Inn was honored to be presented with United Way’s Business of the Year award.
The 8 Broads in the Kitchen applaud all that Lynnette does at her inn, in her community, and the 8 Broads. We are so proud that she’s our friend.
