Thank You & A Request

Sarah Parker Remond Plaque Fund

http://t.co/gAgXsHyb

OUR THANKS to all of you who filled the Salem Athenaeum on Friday for the wonderfully informative and entertaining illustrated talk by Nicholas Stanley-Price. We are grateful for his willingness to give us an evening of his brief visit from Rome to speak about Sarah Parker Remond, members of the Story and Crowninshield families, and others from Salem in Rome’s historic Non-Catholic Cemetery.

We continue to raise  funds to create and install a plaque in the fine location reserved for our memorial to Sarah Parker Remond (1826-1894), African American abolitionist, international lecturer, physician, and social activist, whose final resting place there is unmarked. 

 A total of $10,000 would fund the project, complete with a celebratory unveiling to which all donors will of course be invited, as well as a program in Salem to mark the occasion.

Momentum matters; we hope to complete the project within a year. So please consider donating whatever you can, and be sure to spread the word to others who might like to participate.

All  donors will have their names inscribed in a leather bound volume which will include historical essays on Remond’s life and legacy. One copy will reside in the Roman Cemetery Archives, another in Salem, Massachusetts.

Please send checks payable to:

Remond Plaque Fund, c/o Francis T. Mayo 

265 Essex Street, Suite 301

Salem, MA 01970. 

Thank You!

Marilyn Richardson and Francis Mayo for The Remond Plaque Fund
