"I must say, having been here at three o'clock in the morning and now at six-thirty in the evening, that Waterbury is either the easiest city in the United States to get a crowd in, or it has the best democrats in the United States. In any case, our meeting here two years ago at three in the morning was the high point of the 1960 campaign, and we will meet at three o'clock in the morning the last week of the 1964 campaign and see what's going to happen then."

This plaque is presented to the
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Memorial Library
By the townspeople of Wolcott, Connecticut,
In gratitude to the only president in
history to honor the Waterbury area by
his continued promises to return
His pledge was fulfilled in the fall of 1964
by the late president's brother
Robert F. Kennedy
Who has accepted this plaque on the
anniversary of that promise. We hope that
his library and the examples set therein,
Will serve as an
"Eternal Flame"
By which future generations of
Americans will be guided
