Thanks so much to all the members of the Richmond Museum Association (RMA) who attended the annual meeting on Sunday February 26, 2017! The event was productive, informative and fun! Executive Director Melinda McCrary provided a report on the 2016 activities at the Richmond Museum of History. Director of Ship’s Operations and newly elected board member Johannes Hoech gave a similar report for the SS Red Oak Victory. Congrats to both Melinda and Johannes for successful 2016 at the Museum and Ship!
