Please check out the agenda for the New York Cultural Tourism Network’s Women’s Suffrage Centennial Conference on November 4, 2017 at the State Museum’s Cultural Education Center in Albany, NY at http://www.nywomenshistory.com. It is a day of celebration of the 100th Anniversary of Women’s Right to Vote in New York State with movement and planning toward the National Celebration in 2020 culminating in the opening reception for “Votes For Women: Celebrating New York’s Suffrage Centennial” at the State Museum from 5 to 8 pm. Please come out if you can!
Ted suggested that it would only take a little more time driving home from Boston to stopover in Beacon to see the Margaret Fuller Historical Marker I helped bring to Beacon last year. It was marvelous to be back! Carmen Johnson, coordinator of volunteers at the Beacon Visitors’ Center where the marker is located, was on duty and lovely to be with again. We explored the interesting shops on Main Street after eating lunch and seeing the contemporary art at Dea.
What a powerful journey to celebrate Margaret Fuller in Boston, Cambridge, and Concord, culminating in a spontaneous visit to Beacon, NY on the way home to complete the circle. Margaret led significant lives in Massachusetts and New York State before going to Europe.
