Dear Friends and Supporters,

Thank you for your continued dedication to and support of our beautiful Minute Man National Historical Park. Please consider a year-end gift to the Friends of Minute Man so that together, we can preserve and protect the birthplace of the American Revolution for generations to come.

As our country completes a second year of the covid pandemic, the Park’s value has become even more evident. The scenic trails, famous landscapes, and historic sights continue to serve as a welcome respite for hundreds of thousands of visitors.

Despite the challenges and changes the pandemic has imposed on our work this year, the Friends of Minute Man has played a highly active role in sustaining the Park. With your support, the Friends were able to:

  • Secure and manage a major grant from the Concord Community Preservation Fund that enabled us to rehabilitate and preserve the historic Buttrick gardens overlooking the North Bridge.
  • Provide publicity for the Park’s Virtual Patriots’ Day events.
  • Assist the Park through an early spring staff shortage by funding a “Community Ambassador” position along with Freedom’s Way National Heritage Area.
  • Offer a new free bird walk which sold out in one day.
  • Continue our Winter Lecture Series which included a online presentation on historic stone walls at Minute Man.
  • Co-host children’s events, including a Halloween celebration at Hartwell Tavern and a tree planting at the Wayside, Home of Authors by the Massachusetts Society of the Children of the American Revolution.

Join us in showing your support for the Park with a year-end donation to the Friends of Minute Man today. Please give as generously as you are able – $50, $100, or more goes a long way. You can donate by using the enclosed reply envelope or visit our website at www.friendsofminuteman.org/annual-appeal, where you can make a secure online donation.

We thank you for your ongoing support and wish you and your family a safe and healthy holiday season ahead.

Sincerely,

Bob Morris
President
Friends of Minute Man National Park
