Local Catholic pro-life activists are planning a one-day bus trip from Seneca Falls, which is the birthplace of women’s suffrage, to Adams, Mass., which is the birthplace of Susan B. Anthony.
Kathy Peters and Colleen Spellecy, who belong to St. Francis and St. Clare Parish in Waterloo and Seneca Falls, are organizing the May 16 trip to the home in which Anthony was born in 1820. In 2006 Rochester Catholic and pro-life activist Carol Crossed purchased the house and paid for its restoration, and in 2010 it opened as a musuem with a pro-life exhibit.
The trip will include a tour of the home as well as a meeting with descendants of the Anthony family. The group also will tour the Quaker Meeting House where members of her family attended weekly meetings, as well as St. Stanislaus Church in Adams. The day-trippers will have a continental breakfast, a hot lunch at a restaurant in Adams and dinner from Subway on the way home.
The bus will leave Seneca Falls at 7 a.m. and return by 9 p.m. The trip cost is $100 per person, and checks should be made out to SBA Birthplace Museum and mailed by April 1 to Kathy Peters, 36 Indian Hills Drive, Waterloo, NY 13165.
