The Alden Kindred of America, Inc., will honor a business leader, nurse, historian, and photographer at this year’s Speak for Thyself Awards dinner on Thursday, June 7, from 6-9 pm at the Duxbury Bay Maritime School.
Now in its 12th year, the Speak for Thyself Award recognizes exceptional women who, in the spirit of the strong and courageous Mayflower Pilgrim Priscilla Mullins Alden, make their own choices. Speak recognizes the importance of advocacy and civic mindedness in the daily lives of our leaders, organizers, family and friends.
There are four recipients for the 2018 awards: Nancy Capistran is a business leader and inspirational coach; Renee McInnes, found her calling overseeing hospice services as CEO of the Norwell Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice; Carolyn Ravenscroft, archivist for the Duxbury Rural & Historical Society, helped re-imagined Duxbury’s Bradford House Museum; and photographer Elsie Trask Wheeler whose fascination for people and images has carried her to the far corners of the world.
Tickets are $75 and reservations are required. Please visit www.alden.org for more information.
Proceeds benefit preservation of the Alden House Historic Site.
