2019 Annual Meeting – Boston
April 24 @ 8:00 AM - April 27 @ 5:00 PM$600.00
Boston is one of the oldest cities in the United States, founded on the Shawmut Peninsula in 1630 by Puritan settlers from England. It was the scene of key events of the American Revolution: the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, the Battle of Bunker Hill, and the Siege of Boston. Upon U.S. independence from Great Britain, it continued to be an important port and manufacturing hub as well as a center for education and culture. It would be part of the early slave trade, later become a center of abolition and Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Margaret Fuller, James Russell Lowell, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote in Boston. During our annual meeting members will have the chance to touch, see and feel all this history, experience the wonderful cuisine and once more see society friends.
