The 2011 Recipients

Sponsorship Opportunities

The “Speak for Thyself Award” banquet offers several opportunities for sponsorships. Each of these sponsorships not only affords visibility for the sponsor but honors both the 2011 award recipients and the spirit of that strong Pilgrim woman, Priscilla Mullins Alden of Duxbury. Please go here for additional information regarding the different sponsorship opportunities that are available.

Sponsorship of this event helps preserve and protect the Alden House Historic Site. The house was designated in 2008 as a National Historic Landmark by the United States Department of the Interior. It has stood tall since the late 17th Century and with continued support of our local community will help preserve an important part of our collective past. If you are interested in sponsorship for this event please contact the Alden Kindred of America, Inc. either by phone at (781)934-9092 or via e-mail at aldenhouse@comcast.net.

Since 2006, the Alden Kindred of America, Inc. has honored exceptional women in our communities who have made a difference in people’s lives. Last year we were delighted to honor our 2010 recipients (pictured above Emily Zoltowski, Pine DuBois, Paula Harris and Donna Green) with our “Speak for Thyself” Award.

Who do you think deserves the award? Nominate your candidate!

The Event

The award dinner has grown in popularity as we continuously honor women in our communities. This local event provides a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the tireless work these women provide for many organizations, their community as well as their own family and friends. Last year’s dinner was once again sold out and proved to be a fun night for all those in attendance. This year’s event will once again be held at the Duxbury Senior Center and will take place on Friday May 18, 2012

The Award

The “Speak for Thyself Award” honors exceptional women, women who, in the spirit of Priscilla Mullins, make their own choices. The Award recognizes the role of women in America as Pilgrims, pioneers, advocates, community organizers, politicians and business leaders, as well as mothers, sisters, wives and friends, women whose daily lives are a reflection of America. The “Speak for Thyself Award” puts a face on these women while maintaining a presence in the 21st century for a family and a homestead of the 17th century.
