Hancock County Museum
NEW CUMBERLAND — The regular meeting of the Hancock County Museum Commission was called to order at 6 p.m. at the museum by President Vivian Weigel who also led in the pledge to the flag.
Those attending were Weigel, John Brenneman, Bob McNeil, Joe Ghenne, Janet Keller, Alice Mitchell, and Susan Welch.
Minutes of the previous meeting were approved as mailed.
McNeil presented the treasurers report.
A detailed report was submitted on the spreadsheet. The reports were approved and will be filed for audit.
Old Business: Brenneman said the screen man from East Liverpool will change the two back porch screens and paint the frames white.
The Arts Council’s request to display local artwork was discussed and the Commissioners’ questions were raised as to the location of the display in the museum, the mode of display, the date(s) of the art show, docents for it and publicity. McNeil said he would follow-up with the Arts Council to get answers to the above questions.
The Commissioners agreed that the artwork need not be “era appropriate.”
Mitchell reported that the lawn furniture in the catalog that was left on the kitchen table was too expensive for us.
Kellar found an iron bench on sale that she bought and would like to have the museum use.
Brenneman moved that we use the bench and reimburse Kellar $15 for it; Ghenne seconded the motion and it carried unanimously. Brenneman would like to remove the concrete that held down the old bench.
Ghenne so moved, Welch seconded, and the motion carried unanimously.
James Sayre of Wesbanco presented a synopsis of the museum’s trust portfolio with graphs, and answered questions regarding our concerns over the returns on the investment income.
Our questions were thoroughly addressed and a discussion of future possible actions was held after Mr. Sayre’s presentation.
New Business: McNeil reported that he has changed the lawn service to Rob’s All Seasons, which will save us money. He also raised a question regarding the museum’s membership in the Top of WV as we don’t seem to be receiving many benefits from that membership in terms of publicity and help with publicity aids such as postage, brochures and flyers.
They have helped with flyers and brochures in the past, and we will follow-up with them to see if that sort of aid will continue to be supplied in the future, and if we can be included in their publicity on their website and Facebook pages.
Participation in New Cumberland’s Sept. 29, 2018 Riverfest was discussed, and it was determined that we would like to have a booth there.
The museum will also participate in the Hancock County Fair on Sept. 14-16.
A date for the Nellie Bly History Alive! performance was discussed and Saturday evening on April 6, 2019 was chosen. The Commissioners agreed to provide lodging for the actress, JoAnn Peterson, MBA.
Weigel will handle the paperwork for that.
The next meeting will be held Sept. 6, 2018 at the museum. All interested folks are encouraged to join us.
The business of the day being completed, the meeting was adjourned.
