The Alden Kindred of America has been forging connections with Mayflower passengers John Alden and Priscilla Mullins Alden for over 100 years. During that time we have helped thousands of families engage with their heritage through the exploration of the Alden genealogy. For more information on Alden genealogy click here.
Community Preservation Funds Request
Duxbury residents, thank you for your support on Article 24 at Town Meeting!
Passage of the article will help the Alden Kindred of America preserve one of the town’s most important cultural treasures by supporting our request for Community Preservation Funds to address critical drainage and moisture issues at Alden House.
The project involves replacing the entryway to prevent water from pitching into the original foundation, replacing gutters and downspouts to ensure that water is carried away from the building, rebuilding a bulkhead to promote ventilation in the cellar, and initiating a follow-up moisture management assessment to make sure there are no remaining moisture issues.
We need YOUR SUPPORT TODAY!
We must raise another $20,000 to make our budget for Annual Fund Contributions for this year. Your dollars help to preserve the Alden House and its programs.
Please consider sending us an online donation TODAY.
If you've already contributed, THANK YOU.......and if if you want to participate in this URGENT MESSAGE, we welcome your additional support.
