April 16, 2010

The Washington County Museum of Fine Arts recently honored its lifelong members.

This year, the museum's annual meeting combined a report on the "State of the Museum" and plans for its pending courtyard enclosure project with recognition of longtime memberships and volunteer efforts.

Those who were recognized who have maintained personal museum memberships for more than 50 years are Hagerstown residents Jane S. Cochran, Florence Hill Graff, Marjorie Grumbacher, Dr. and Mrs. Atlee C. Kepler, Mr. and Mrs. Harry F. Vollmer III and Dr. W. Lehman Guyton of Cockeysville, Md.

Two local businesses, J. Edward Cochran & Co. Inc. and Susquehanna Bank, and the Sharpsburg-based philanthropic foundation, The Agnita M. Stine Schreiber Family Foundation Inc. were also recognized.


"The museum relies on the engaged interest of its membership for programs and operations," Massie Lane said.

The attendees were briefed on the planned expansion of the museum's historic facility by the project architect, Todd Grove of Murphy and Dittenhaffer Architects.

"The feedback of our members will help the museum improve the services and programs we offer to some 75,000 people annually," Lane said.

A Distinguished Service Award was presented to the Singer Society, the museum's volunteer organization, in recognition of leadership and service to the museum.

Marjorie Hobbs received the Extraordinary Service Volunteer Award in recognition for her many talents, dedication and time that she gives to the museum.
