Katie McQuaid's Scene in Manchester: Fall brings brisk lineup of great fundraising events
Aurore Eaton with the Manchester Historic Association sends information about a tour of "Manchester's fashionable North End" this Sunday featuring six fascinating historical properties and a walking tour. The tour will explore the history and architecture of the neighborhood, which was the home of many of the city's most prominent families. It includes two mansions that have been converted for office use, three private homes, and a church campus that features the 1908 Manning House. Attendees will learn about the people who built these structures and contributed to the history of Manchester.
Pastoral Counseling Services is holding its 18th annual Good Samaritan Awards on Oct. 1. The honorees, chosen for going above and beyond in their contributions to the community, include W. Stephen McMahon from Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC, Sue Corby of English for New Americans, Lillye Ramos Spooner of Greater Manchester Aids Project, Rev. Joseph Gurdak of St. Anne–St. Augustin Parish, and Karen Cuneo from Wings & Hooves Therapeutic Riding.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so you are sure to see lots of pink and related fundraisers in the days ahead, including the local American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk here in the Queen City on Sunday, Oct. 20.
Nine bands and musicians will play from noon to 10 p.m. amid raffles, silent auctions and kid-friendly activities provided by the Manchester Monarchs, the NH Balloon Man, and the New England Brethren of Pirates. You may even get to walk the plank.
Camp Allen comedy
Camp Allen's 3rd annual Night of Comedy will be held Oct. 11 at The Yard Restaurant in Manchester. The evening starts at 6 p.m. with a cash bar, appetizers, raffles and auctions.
Mental health celebration
NH365.ORG Event of the Week
I had my fill of baklava that George Copadis from the St. George Greek Orthodox Cathedral brought to our offices last week, but I am already craving more. Copadis knows that one taste of Greek pastry is going to bring me in for more — much more — at this weekend's Glendi. And while I am at the Hanover Street church's annual celebration, I might as well try a little lamb, pastichio, dolmades, spinach pita, and loukoumades.
