The board of directors awarded John French a lifetime membership to Huronia Museum on November 21, 2018 for his many years of volunteer service at Huronia Museum. John joined the board of directors in 2009, first as Treasurer and then in later years, took on the responsibility of Chair. During John’s time with the museum, the Finance Committee implemented an investment policy and ensured annual financial stability for the organization. Later on, as Chair, John provided the leadership to finalize lease and partnership agreements with the Town of Midland, re-opened the renewed art Gallery, chaired the Native Gallery exhibit committee which opened the new Native Gallery in Spring of 2014 and provided the leadership to see Huronia Museum successfully implement a 3-year strategic plan.
John is moving on to focus his efforts on Brookside Museum Association, as Artistic Director but will always be a friend to Huronia Musuem. The staff and Board of Directors are grateful for John’s dedication to Huronia Museum and wish him well in the future.
