Save the Date: Special John Quincy Adams Presidential Wreath-Laying Ceremony

This year is the 252nd anniversary of President John Quincy Adams’ birth. This year’s ceremony marks the launch of a new focus for the JQA Ceremony. Beginning this year the ceremony will focus on celebrating individuals in the present day whose lives and work embody the spirit of JQA’s lifetime dedication to public service and the improvement of the lives of all people in our democratic society.


To kick off this new tradition we are excited to announce that this year’s Featured Speaker will be Jordi Albareda, Founder and Director of the Fair Saturday movement. Since the founding of the Fair Saturday Foundation only four years ago in 2015, Mr. Albareda and his team have built an international arts and culture movement “committed to developing a better world through the promotion of arts and culture and social empathy as key drivers of change.” Mr. Albareda lives and is based in Bilbao Spain, and as of this year, the Fair Saturday movement has spread to 11 different hubs, with 1100 participating communities across Europe and, thanks to Quincy, now the United States! You can learn more about Fair Saturday events and about the Fair Saturday movement by going to their website at .

The ceremony will be conducted in conjunction with the Color Guard from Naval Operations Center Quincy and include music by UFPC Music Director Norman Corey and the Quincy Choral Society. After the ceremony we will gather for a reception where folks can meet Mr. Albareda and have a slice of the usual birthday cake supplied by Konditor Meister!
