Historic Cherry Hill Grieves the Passing of a Leader and Friend published October 02, 2020

Historic Cherry Hill lost another great leader last night: Trustee Emeritus Mike Beiter. Mike’s contributions to Cherry Hill are too many to count–he supported the museum generously and selflessly through his gifts as an artist and gardener and through fundraisers and personal gifts. He introduced countless friends and associates to Cherry Hill and served as board president during some of the museum’s most challenging times. Mike’s support took many forms–there was no task too big or small for him. He could be called upon to help move collections or fallen tree branches, he collected deposit recyclables for the museum’s “Clynk” account, and he hosted fundraisers at his home that raised thousands of dollars for the museum. In an institution’s history, there are few people of whom it can be said “we would not have made it without you.” Mike was one of those people. Thank you, Mike…we will miss you.
