FORT MITCHELL, Ky. (Feb. 7, 2018) — Vent Haven Museum has announced the appointment of two new board members, Bob Wylly and Tom Ladshaw.
“I am honored to welcome Bob and Tom to the board,” said museum curator Lisa Sweasy. “They have supported the museum for a number of years and are dedicated to helping us build momentum around our capital funds campaign and to growing support for our one-of-a-kind museum.”
Robert L. Wylly III has lived in Cincinnati since 1978, and retired from Procter & Gamble in 2002. He attended his first Vent Haven ConVENTion that year, first out of curiosity but later out of appreciation for what it takes to be a ventriloquist. He has volunteered in many capacities at Vent Haven Museum for several years and is active in many other local organizations, including the Boy Scouts of America and the Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
Tom Ladshaw, an award winning comedy magician and ventriloquist, is a veteran of thousands of shows in more than twenty countries on five continents. He has served on Vent Haven Museum’s Board of Advisors for 15 years, established and coordinates the museum’s premium merchandise program, is the museum’s certified appraiser, and produces “Double Talk”, the museum’s public ventriloquist show.
