Out To Lunch Summer Concert Series

This summer, the Worcester Women’s History Project was a visible participant in the Worcester Cultural Coalition’s Out To Lunch Summer Concert Series. For six of eight weeks in July and August, volunteers and steering committee members set up an informational table on the Worcester Common with an interactive art component. While teaching people about the art of paper rolling or quilling, the volunteers also spread the word about the WWHP mission of celebrating the strong women of Worcester and educating Worcester’s citizens about the first National Woman’s Rights Convention. Cupcake the Clown joined the volunteer list for two weeks in July, attracting families to the booth by providing free face paint- ing. WWHP vice president Heather-Lyn Haley continued the tradition by painting faces at two August concerts. We’d like to extend a special thanks to Hanna Solska, Mary Plummer, Kathy Comer, Sharon Smith-Viles, Liz Gustafson, Louise Glea- son, Hayley Louise Gleason, Dianne Bruce, Kara Wilson, Laurie Wodin, and Glen Harris for staffing the table at various times over the summer.
