The Suffrage Centennial Celebration Committee in Adams is getting closer to its fundraising goal.

IBerkshires.com reports that the campaign is nearing the $100,000 mark, bringing it closer to the amount needed to fund a Susan B. Anthony statue.

Committee member Erin Mucci gave her financial update Thursday last week and she says the group has raised so far $82,678.39.

When that $100,000 figure is reached, the Adams Community Bank contribution would kick in and that would the organization to the $125,000 amount that would basically pay for the statue.
