Hull Lifesaving Museum is pleased to announce that Helen Gould was appointed to the organization’s board of directors at its monthly meeting on Sept. 27.
Gould joined HLM’s board after 10 years as an enthusiastic crew member of its rowing program. She has been active as a volunteer for many HLM programs, including boat-repair projects, and has helped with many community events and programs during the last several years. She has demonstrated a strong commitment to HLM and its mission of preserving Boston Harbor’s rich maritime heritage and lifesaving traditions.
“We are extremely excited that Helen has been chosen to serve on the board,” said Hull Lifesaving Museum President Bob MacIntyre. “Her love of rowing and many years of maritime experience will be a benefit to the Museum long into the future.”
In addition to her involvement in the museum, Gould is a member of the Hull Garden Club, the Friends of Sunset Point Camp, and has volunteered at all their special events. As a nurse practitioner for more than 40 years at the Veterans Administration Outpatient Clinic in Boston, she hopes to be involved with the ongoing veterans program at HLM.
The museum operates under a very engaged and well-rounded group of individuals. The nine-member board inspires dedication, diligence, and engagement. Collectively, their intelligence and insight push the museum forward in the direction of meaningful growth, always and especially with an eye toward growth in our community, particularly its youth.
