Rochester Hills Museum Young Leaders Circle

The mission of this new group is to engage with other young professionals in the local history of the Rochester Region and cultivate the next generation of history enthusiasts through education, events, and fundraisers.

The inaugural group is composed of individuals under 40 who are leaders in local businesses, non-profits, and in the greater community. From young professionals who have been museum members for years to individuals interested in getting involved in the Rochester Hills area, this group is excited to share in the common goal of enriching the community with history. 

To join this organization, members must hold a membership at the Rochester Hills Museum. 

To adhere to social distancing guidelines, all meetings are being held virtually.

Past events:

On Saturday, September 26 the Rochester Hills Museum Young Leaders Circle hosted their 2nd Annual Big Green Tractor Beer Fest presented by Genisys Credit Union at the Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm. The event created a laid back atmosphere where guests enjoyed a drink outside and listened to music from TNT Sound Productions. Attendees were seated throughout the Children’s garden allowing for social distancing. The entire gathering was limited to a 80-person maximum. Guests were asked to follow social distancing guidelines during the event.

Rochester Hills Museum Young Leaders (RHMYL) headed to Fieldstone Winery for a hard cider tasting and a presentation on the history of cider on October 15. This hybrid event had both virtual and limited in person options. Each ticket included a package of eight hard cider samples and a presentation on the history of cider by Museum Program Coordinator Cathy Fitzpatrick and Head Cider Maker Ryan Mulrenin. For those that preferred to enjoy the presentation virtually, they turned their living room into a virtual tasting room and listened to the presentation from the comfort of their own home.
