The Orillia Museum of Art and History (OMAH) celebrates Black History Month each February. This year we pay tribute to community leader Fayne Bullen.

Fayne was born in Grenada. Over the 55 years he has lived in Orillia, he has demonstrated a dedication to the enrichment of our community.

Fayne loves Orillia and it shows. His resume of contributions is a lengthy one. If he saw a need, he rolled up his sleeves and got the job done.

Fayne has a deep passion for helping others. He led by example as a well-respected educator, as a politician, as a community activist and through his contributions as a member and leader of service organizations.

He not only acted as a member of organizations, but identified a need and founded organizations to meet the needs of our community. His contributions are exceptional.

Fayne’s love of Orillia is illustrated by his devotion to our community and by the immense difference he has made for many people.
