BEMUS POINT — The Lawson Center Boat Museum in Bemus Point celebrated the changing of the guard by installing new officers for the 2020-21 seasons.

Pat Baldwin, outgoing president, passed the gavel, in a responsible, socially distant manner, to the new president, Craig Butler.

Baldwin spoke to the Board of Trustees via a ZOOM meeting, to say that she was proud to serve The Lawson Center since its inception in 2012 and looks forward to continuing to contribute as a faithful volunteer.

Before assuming the presidency, Butler served The Lawson Center by designing and installing most of the exhibits. He became vice president of the board two years ago and was instrumental in the building of the museum’s new storage facility.

Butler told board members he is honored to assume his new role and to work with all of the trustees to keep the museum as a vital part of the community and to continue its mission and innovative programming.
