Celebrating 25 Years
As Mary's Pence begins to celebrate its 25th year, we look back in awe and gratitude for the many simple acts which have coalesced into a movement. We are grateful to former staffers, Karen Flotte and Sheila Daly, who have teamed up to coordinate our efforts. Mary's Pence is digging into the archives, reconnecting with our earliest roots, collecting the stories never told, and sharing them all with you.
Because, of course, you are a part of our story.
Let's celebrate, together!
