In Memory of Laura and Dick Mace

The Mace Race is named in memory of Laura and Dick Mace who passed within a month of each other in 2019. Laura and Richard (Dick) Mace were originally from Dorchester (OFD) and moved to Stoughton in the 70’s.  They were inseparable since they were kids and they were married for 62 years.  They raised six children and were blessed with 6 spouses, 13 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.  Family gatherings and Cape Cod vacation adventures are our fondest memories.  Many of us have made our year round home here.  

Since the importance of family was instilled in the six of us, we chose to support the Cape Cod Children’s Museum since family is the very foundation of this wonderful place. Our parents would be so happy and proud to see family and friends together supporting such a worthy cause in their memory.

Thank you for helping us support family fun through giving to the Cape Cod Children’s Museum and join us on September 12th for the second annual family walk/run.
