On December 21, 2009, a memorial design created by Jay Hall Carpenter, an artist from Silver Springs, Maryland, was selected to commemorate Frederick Douglass on the grounds of the Talbot County Courthouse. The January 18th meeting will highlight more discussion pertaining to the Carpenter winning design including timeline, costs and Talbot County Council approval process. Specific fund raising activities notably “ Evening with Frederick Douglass” program and silent auction at the Avalon Theater on March 20,2010 and  the Frederick Douglass- YMCA Ten Miler, race/walk on May 1, 2010 will be detailed.
