AFTERNOON TEA WITH LUCY STONE, as interpreted by Marilyn Harris
Saturday, March 14th, 3:30pm
“I think, with never-ending gratitude, that the young women of today do not and can never know at what price their right to free speech and to speak at all in public has been earned.”  So said Lucy Stone, an early – and not generally well-known – advocate for women’s rights, who dared to keep her own name after marriage and even wore pantaloons!  2020 is the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment – a right Lucy Stone could only dream of – but one her speeches and writings helped win for us.  Come to meet this fiery pioneer and enjoy tea, tea sandwiches, scones, and pastries.  $10 Suggested Donation. Space is limited and pre-registration is required.
