Thursday’s AGM was the last meeting for Michelle Foxton (FHG 1670) as President of the Fort Henry Guard Club. Michelle has been a passionate and tireless supporter of the Guard, and the Club has flourished under her leadership over the past five years. We offer our sincere thanks for all of her hard work, and wish her the best as she pursues some exciting new opportunities in the weeks and months ahead.
Michelle will remain on the board as Past President, which means that previous Past President Steve Mecredy (FHG 950) has stepped down after many years of dedicated service. Michael Murphy (FHG 2231) also stepped down from the Board at the end of a two-year term, but will continue his great work putting together issues of The Guardsman.
The Club’s new President is Alex McLean (FHG 2100). Alex, who started with the Guard in 2009 and later worked for several years as the Fort’s Curator & Program Support Officer, brings a wealth of experience and connections to his new role. We are also pleased to welcome Cameron Smith (FHG 2358) to the Board. You can find the full list of Board members here.
Thanks to all of the Guard Club members who participated in our virtual AGM for their thoughtful questions and messages of support.
