                    in the house of representatives

                        Monday, October 28, 2019

  Mr. PAPPAS. Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize the 50th 
Anniversary of the Canterbury Shaker Village and honor the generosity 
of the Maxine and Richard Morse Endowment Fund for their commitment to 
both the Shaker Village and for the arts across New Hampshire.
  The Maxine and Richard Morse Endowment Fund has supported many 
philanthropic causes across New Hampshire for more than 60 years. Among 
their most notable efforts was to help support the establishment of the 
Canterbury Shaker Village. In 1969, the Morses worked with a group of 
Shaker sisters to provide funds and devise a plan to allow the sisters 
to remain in their home while also preserving the Shaker history, 
legacy, and lifestyle for generations to come. From then on, Canterbury 
Shaker Village Inc. was formed to hold the property, thus enabling the 
continued celebration and teaching of Shaker legacy, philosophy, and 
teachings for years to come.
  To this day, my dear friend, Maxine has spearheaded efforts to 
protect and preserve the Village as both a Corporator and Trustee. 
Today, the Canterbury Shaker Village, in addition to be listed as a 
National Historic Landmark for its architecture, serves as a critical 
site for teaching people of all generations about the lives and legacy 
of the Canterbury Shakers.
  On behalf of our constituents across New Hampshire's First 
Congressional District, I congratulate the Canterbury Shaker Village at 
the Currier Museum on its 50th anniversary. I thank everyone, 
especially Maxine and the late Dick Morse, who have been instrumental 
in its formation and continued flourishing.
