Program 1

THE COVID-19 GLOBAL PANDEMIC PRESENTED NEW CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE HERITAGE MUSEUM AND CULTURAL CENTER IN 2020. TWO MAJOR FUNDRAISERS AND MOST IN-PERSON EVENTS HAD TO BE CANCELLED, AND STAFFING WAS CUT TO CONSERVE FINANCIAL RESOURCES. THIS DOWNTIME, HOWEVER, GAVE THE BOARD THE OPPORTUNITY TO COMPLETELY RESTRUCTURE THE ORGANIZATION SO THAT THE HMCC WILL BE STRONGER THAN EVER WHEN IT FULLY REOPENS TO THE PUBLIC. PRIOR TO THE LAYOFF OF EMPLOYEES, STAFF PREPARED AND LAUNCHED TWO NEW EXHIBITS. THE FIRST, "PROCLAIMING EMANCIPATION," TELLS THE STORY OF EMANCIPATED SLAVES IN SOUTHWEST MICHIGAN. THE SECOND, "KEEPERS OF THE FIRE: THE POKAGON BAND OF POTAWATOMI," TELLS THE STORY OF THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF THE AREA. VISITATION OF THESE EXHIBITS IS CURRENTLY PERMITTED ON A LIMITED BASIS DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS. TOWARD THE END OF 2020, BOARD MEMBERS LAUNCHED AN ONLINE CONCERT SERIES AND ONLINE LECTURE SERIES. A HISTORIC PRESERVATION AWARD WAS GRANTED TO A LOCAL HOMEOWNER, AND A WALKER TOUR OF THE OLD SAINT JOSEPH NEIGBORHOOD WAS HELD. THE BOARD IS PLANNING TO RELAUCH TOURS OF THE ST. JOSEPH LIGHTHOUSE ON THE NORTH PIER WHILE OBSERVING COVID GUIDELINES. IN CONCLUSION, THE BOARD IS LOOKING FORWARD TO HOSTING NUMEROUS CULUTRAL, BUSINESS, AND PERSONAL EVENTS AT THE NEWLY-RESTRUCTURED HERITAGE MUSEUM AND CULTURAL CENTER JUST AS SOON AS PERMITTED.
