3 Heroes Project

Hello friends and supporters of UCAC (Unified Committee for Afro-American Contributions),

Our organization have come up with a project that we are excited about and feel many citizens of the county will agree with us.

At the Elmer Brown Freedom Park, where the large stone pyramid stands and the small pedestals tell of the story of how Afro-Americans of St. Mary’s County were instrumental in the development and growth of the wonderful county that it is today.

There were 3 men that distinguished themselves by the good works they left behind, that will remain with us for a long time to come. They were Elmer Brown Sr., John G. Lancaster and Joseph Lee Somerville.

We are honoring these 3 men, by creating a bronze plaque for each of them telling a small piece of their life’s story.

The project will cost a little above $7000, that cost includes the cost of the plaques and their installation.

We are planning to have them installed by the end of November or early December. The grand reveal at our Juneteenth 2022 celebration.

We are asking for your help by donating to the project. UCAC is a 501c (3) non- profit organization. We are an all-volunteer organization. Your tax-deductible contribution would help us make this project a reality.

We are soliciting donations of any amount. For individuals that donating $75 or above they will have their name listed in the 2022 Juneteenth souvenir journal as a silver supporter of the project. For Businesses that donate $150 or above their name will be listed as a gold supporter of the project..

Click on the Donate button below and make your donation. Please tell your friends and family about this project. Or you can write and check to UCAC and send it to PO Box 1457, Lexington Park, MD 20653.
