Town-wide Marriage Vow Renewal Ceremony
This year, as part of the Danvers Family Festival, Calvary will be hosting an exciting, high-visibility, town-wide marriage renewal ceremony – free and open to all faiths – at the Pavilion and lawn of the Peabody Library in Danvers. Couples are invited to bring along their families, friends and neighbors!There will be music, prayers, a marriage vow renewal ceremony presided over by the Rev. Thea Keith-Lucas, rector of Calvary Episcopal Church, and a blessing of rings (new ones and/or the original ones). Participating couples will each get a certificate to commemorate the renewal of their marriage vows.Immediately following the ceremony, Calvary will be hosting a free reception for couples, their families and friends. Local businesses that want to support the event by donating food and beverages will each have table space to promote their business and their goods. (Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Parish Office, at 978-774-1150 if you'd like to donate something.)The idea is to make this a true, all-inclusive town event, providing positive exposure to Danvers and celebrating all the families, friends, neighbors, businesses and organizations that help make our town so special.The Danvers Wedding Vow Renewal Ceremony and reception will take place on Saturday, June 16 (rain date is Sunday, June 17), at 2 p.m., at the Pavilion.

More About Peabody Institute Library of Danvers
The public library (not to be confused with the Peabody Institute Library in Peabody or the Peabody Institute in Baltimore) was originally built in the Gothic style at its present location in 1869 with funds provided by local philanthropist George Peabody. However, the building was destroyed by fire in 1890.
The large Georgian Revival style structure was then built in 1892 for the sum of $34,218. The basement was remodeled in 1963 for use as a Children's Room and stacks and then in 1980, a new floor was added to replace the upstairs auditorium and 12,000 feet were added in the basement to create a new Children's Room and to house the new Archival Center.
The library maintains departments for adult services, archives, a children's room, information services and young adults. The George B. Gordon Meeting Room is available for reservation, which can be done online. Outside, the grounds contain Peabody Park to the rear of the library. You can also find the Peabody Institute on Facebook.
