Thank You to Donors for the “Theresa Tree and Plaque”
by Joan Cavanagh, a friend of Theresa Carr
PAR readers may remember in the December newsletter there was a request for contributions to raise the funds to plant a tree and erect a memorial plaque in Jocelyn Square Park for Theresa I. Carr. Many PAR readers knew Theresa, whose activism spanned several communities and countries. A self-identified “Marxist-Leninist Lesbian Feminist,” she gave her fierce intelligence to the interconnected struggles for peace and justice.
Thanks to the following PAR readers and other donors, we have raised the money to plant a tree and place a memorial plaque to Theresa at Jocelyn Square Park on May 23, 2017, her 63rd birthday.
- Gerrie Casey
- Jay and Mildred Doody
- Mary Fischer
- Mary Johnson
- Midge Jolly
- Cornelia Kinnauer
- Susan Klein and Henry Lowendorf
- Preston MacAndrews
- Pat Mikos and Jae Patton
- Paul Mishler
- Steve Rowley
Thanks also to Paula Panzarella and the PAR Planning Committee for accepting the checks on behalf of this project, and for delivering the payment to the Parks Dept.
Following the tree planting, there will be a gathering of friends and neighbors in the park. All are welcome! Details of the event will be forthcoming in the April issue of PAR. With much gratitude, Joan Cavanagh.
