Adams: $10K grant award funds S.B. Anthony celebration
The Adams Suffrage Centennial Celebration Committee is the recipient of a $10,000 grant from the Avangrid Foundation in partnership with Berkshire Gas Company.
The grant supports the 2020 celebration of the 200th birthday of Adams native Susan B. Anthony and the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment which granted women the right to vote.
The celebration will include the installation of a statue honoring Susan B. Anthony and a three-day festival slated Aug. 21-23 that will culminate in a parade and statue unveiling on Aug. 23.
