The Board thanked outgoing President Jim Malinowski for his support and guidance over the past two years.

A Citizen’s Award was presented to Ginger Nims, Amboy Hardware and General Store.  When Ginger moved to Amboy at the end of 2011, she felt the community needed a hardware store.  So, she and her partner did just that.  They purchased the Amboy Hardware Store and provided the community with a place to go for their project needs, and other items.  Ginger supports North Clark Historical Museum, Mt. Valley Grange #79, North Clark Little League, attends the Board meetings for Territorial Park, and is a sponsor for the princesses. Thank you, Ginger, for all your support!

A Volunteer Award was presented to Dana Brown, new Board member and very active volunteer.  Dana began volunteering at the Museum in the Spring of 2022.  She began joining the team on Wednesday workdays and jumped right in helping out and learning what the Museum is about.  She’s worked on exhibits, family history research, weeding, and cleaning.  You name it, she was ready to go!  Thank you, Dana, for your support and guidance!
