Recognition Tea in Honour of Sue Mulcahy

OMAH Executive Director Ninette Gyorody with Sue Mulcahy
On Tuesday, June 27, the Orillia Museum of Art & History hosted an afternoon tea honouring one of Orillia's most remarkable women, Sue Mulcahy. 

The Mulcahy family have been unwavering contributers to the Orillia Museum of Art & History since its inception and Sue continues to generously support our museum as well as many other organizations in Orillia. 

Sue's accolades include - but are not limited to - working in real estate during a time where women were rarely working in the industry, serving on Orillia's Town Council, and receiving Lakehead University Orillia's first Civitas Award. Her contributions to Orillia's community as a board member of the Orillia Hall of Fame, supporter of Streets Alive! in our downtown and OMAH's predecessor, the Orillia Historical Society, showcase her giving nature and passion for our city. 

Sue told us recently: "I'm a big fan of OMAH! Over the years, I have enjoyed getting involved with the Orillia Museum of Art & History as it has become better known to Orillians and many friends throughout Canada and the United States. I am passionate about everyone having the opportunity to visit the museum and see and enjoy this fabulous home of art and historical donations."

The afternoon was well attended by friends and associates of both Sue and the museum with refreshments provided by White Lion's Tea House. Words were shared by Orillia Mayor Steve Clarke, MP Simcoe-North Bruce Stanton, OMAH Board Chair Ted Markle, Richard Oatway, Dr. Henry Wilson, Reid Asselstine, and master of ceremonies OMAH Executive Director Ninette Gyorody.
