Heroic Monument

Relief Society sisters voted to sustain the general presidency in their project of erecting “a fitting monument … symbolic of women of the past, women today, and future women” in Nauvoo, where the Relief Society was established. Fund raising begins immediately and lasts only through 1976. Each sister is requested to donate a modest sum, with the names of all contributors to be placed in the cornerstone or in another place in the monument. Ten thousand dollars of the Wheat Trust Fund interest money will be contributed to the monument as a special memorial to the early gleaners.
