The design stage is complete for the 2004 Form plaque. I worked with members of the Form of 2004 to come up with a list of events, and the following was chosen to be featured on the plaque:
- Upper left: The outline of the State of Massachusetts divided into (what will be) rainbow colored stripes to represent the passage of marriage equality on May 17th, 2004 – the first state to do so.
- Right: The Princess Elizabeth Challenge Cup which sits on top of a shield featuring an emblem from the Henley-on-Thames coat of arms – representing the win at Henley for the boys’ crew team.
- Center: A boar presenting a platter of food – representing the revitalization of the Boar’s Head dinner tradition in 2002 by Form of 2004 members.
- Bottom left: the Democratic donkey symbol with “1962” – representing Secretary of State John Kerry’s run for president.
I will now begin working on the carving process, with the plan to have the finished plaque to present at Anniversary weekend in June this year. Photos of the process will be posted on the blog, so stay tuned for more information!
