On April 16th, the Red Mill Museum Village hosted its Annual Meeting, at which the Museum’s membership officially elected its new Board of Trustees.
Richard Miller has been elected to serve as President of the Board of Trustees of the Red Mill Museum Village. Miller is a resident of the Town of Clinton and a retired educator. He previously served the town as Mayor and is a member of the Town of Clinton Historical Preservation Commission. Miller has been a part of the Board of Trustees for the Museum since 1999 and served as president from 2007 to 2010. In addition to his Board service, Miller has organized the annual Red Mill Museum Village British Car Day fundraiser since 1995. Miller’s first act as President of the Board was to honor his predecessor, Paul Muir, for his leadership with a crystal award from Bill Healy Designs.
Miller is joined by Paul Muir as Vice President of the Board of Trustees. Muir is the current mayor of Bethlehem Township and previously served as the Museum’s President for three years. Wes Steiner, President of Centrum Financial Group, will continue to serve the Board as Treasurer, as will Secretary Maggie Murphy, who also serves as President of the Friends of the Red Mill.
The membership of the Red Mill Museum Village also approved the appointment of Raymond Bindus, Jr, Kala Hill, and David Kazan to the Museum’s Board and the reappointment of Trustees Mark LaRue, Kathryn McGuire, Wes Steiner, and Jay Thatcher.
The Annual Meeting concluded with recognizing the Volunteers of the Year-Sandy and David Foster, who have dedicated countless hours to the Museum’s colonial herb garden. The Fosters have been involved in the garden since 2008, when their daughter Morgan refurbished it for her Girl Scout Gold Award project. In addition to the Volunteer of the Year award, historian Peter Osborne presented a lecture titled “The Silent Cities: Graveyards, Churchyards, and Cemeteries.”
