The Baltimore City Historical Society held its 2019 annual Meeting to elect directors and officers on Saturday, June 29, at the Locust Point Community Church.

Incoming President Betsy Nix presented outgoing President Mike Franch with a token of the BCHS’s gratitude and remarked, “Over many years Mike Franch has provided BCHS with invaluable service by managing our extremely active  Facebook group  and organizing the  Baltimore History Evenings . Last year he agreed to step into the presidency when BCHS needed a leader. Through his genial communications and encouragement of task forces devoted to individual projects, he guided the organization into a more sustainable future. The board thanked him for his work with the gift of a numbered Baltimore icons print by Kari Miller of the local  Tiny Dog Press .”
