Susan B. Anthony

Linda McKenney will present a historical re-enactment as Susan B. Anthony, taking her audience on Susan’s journey from childhood to her death, providing snippets of her life and roles in temperance, abolition and the women’s suffrage movement.

Susan Brownell Anthony was a pioneer leader of the cause for women’s suffrage, and her energy was tireless in working for what she considered to be the best interests of womankind. In 1878 Susan submitted a proposed amendment to the Congress.  Forty-two years later, in 1920, it became the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Linda McKenney is a personal life coach, writer and motivational speaker, specializing in mindful living and eating. She is honored and grateful to be able to bring Susan B. Anthony to life.

The Field Goods Story

Field Goods is a rapidly growing company in the position to reinvent food distribution. Located in Athens, NY, a small Hudson River town in Greene County, our company was started in 2011 with an old station wagon, two employees, and 60 customers. We’ve now grown to service eastern New York State, including the New York metro area, western CT and MA, and northern NJ.

 

Our distribution model provides numerous benefits to the community while reducing food waste and supporting sustainability. Consumers gain convenient access to local produce on a regular basis along with information that motivates them toward a healthier lifestyle. Employers benefit from a wellness program that is truly effective in changing the habits of their employees. Small farmers benefit from selling their unique products to a new market at a fair price, and the environment benefits from drastically reduced emissions!

 

Field Goods was recognized for its hiring of workers with disabilities, and received grants from Greene County Economic Development, the New York State Capital Region Economic Development Council competition, and the USDA for its work to support agriculture and create jobs in an economically disadvantaged area. Field Goods is a certified New York State Women-Owned business.
