Three Named To Putnam County Museum Board


Robert W. Evans Robert W. Evans Three additional members joined the Museum’s Board of Directors this summer and fall. They are: Robert W. Evans, Gigi Jennewein Fenlon, and David Zeiner.

“Each of our new board members brings new energy and a unique perspective of our community to the Museum,” says Tanis Monday, executive director of PCM. “We’re already benefitting from their efforts and insights.”

Volunteers play a vital role for Museum. There is a role for volunteers in every local non-profit organization, but for the Putnam County Museum, they are essential. “The Museum simply couldn’t function without its volunteers,” notes Diana LaViolette, a former president and now emeritus board member.

American Legion

An exhibit featuring World War I-era U.S. propaganda and Liberty Bond posters, provided by the local post of the American Legion, opened at the Museum in August. Another group of the posters will be provided by the Legion and exhibited later this fall. “These patriotic posters offer a fascinating glimpse into a chapter of our history that many younger people may not be familiar with,” says Tanis Monday, executive director of the Museum. “We’re very grateful to the Legion for sharing this priceless local historic treasure.”


David Zeiner David Zeiner Sarah Myers appointed new associate director

Sarah Myers, a Putnam County native and graduate of one of the nation’s first college majors in Public History, has joined the Museum as part-time associate director.

“I am genuinely excited that Sarah is joining us,” says Tanis Monday, executive director of the Museum. “She is a hard worker who will help the Museum strengthen its standards and practices.”


Gigi Jennewein Fenlon Gigi Jennewein Fenlon THE ARCH goes digital

THE ARCH, Putnam County Museum’s newsletter, has made the leap to online availability beginning with this issue. “We know that many PCM members are digitally savvy, active online users and believe that many of them will actually prefer to read THE ARCH on their computer, tablet or smart phone,” says Tanis Monday, executive director of the Museum. “This is one of several steps we will be taking to reach out online to both current and potential

future members.”
