The Whittier Home announces that due to concerns for the health of attendees, and in light of the recent coronavirus reports, the 10th Annual “Celebrating Whittier” fundraiser that was to be held on Sunday, March 22nd, 2:00 p.m., at the Friends Meetinghouse in Amesbury, MA will be postponed until later in the spring when it might be held in the garden of the Whittier Home.
Chris Bryant, president of the WHA states that “bringing many elderly folks into a gathering this large would be an unnecessary risk that we aren’t willing to take. We hope that many will join us later in the year when the event is rescheduled”.
The program for the event is a presentation by Ron and Donna Lasko entitled “HATS OFF TO WOMEN!” and commemorates the 100th anniversary of American women achieving the right to vote. It celebrates the spirit that has paved the way for future women’s rights progress.
