Amistad Celebration

The United Church of Christ sponsored a huge celebration of the Amistad and our Congregationalist ancestors' fight to free the slaves it carried from Africa. All area churches were invited to attend and help with the events of the day.

See more about it on the
Massachusetts UCC web site.

The "Freedom Schooner" bell

All day at the Fleet Pavilion

Everyone wanted to tour the slave ship

Some of our youth helped with activities for the kids

Others worked at the presentation as ushers


It was a chilly, windy day by the water. Perfect for a hot chocolate snack!
