At their January meeting the Board of Directors of the Jay County Historically Society regretfully accepted the resignation of Larry Hiatt from the board. Larry had been elected to the board in January 2009. He had served as Co-President with Kay Locker from January 2012 through December 2018.
Larry and his wife, Maria, had also served as co-chairs of the Museum Committee for several years until late in 2019. In this position, they had been responsible for coordinating displays, had prepared many displays, and had accessioned thousands of articles that have been donated to the museum. They even spent many hours when the museum was closed working to catalog, photograph, and store or display these items.
Maria has been responsible for securing and placing vendors for the Heritage Festival. They also willingly helped with many other tasks at the museum, along with being ambassadors for and promotors of the activities of the Jay County Historical Society.
We sincerely thank them for all they have done to improve the historical society and museum and to make the public more aware of its presence and purposes.
