Irish tenor Ronan Tynan honored in Manchester

MANCHESTER — Internationally known Irish tenor Ronan Tynan received an honorary Ancient Order of Hibernians membership from Alan Heidenreich, past vice president of the William J. Shanahan Division 1 of the New Hampshire AOH, before Tynan’s appearance at the Palace Theatre in Manchester.

The nonprofit AOH is made up of Americans of Irish lineage and Catholic faith.

It raises money for a variety of local charities throughout the year. Meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at the Henry J. Sweeney Post American Legion Hall, 251 Maple St. Anyone interested is welcome to attend.

DAR Good Citizen meeting Saturday

WOLFEBORO — The Winnipesaukee Chapter DAR Good Citizen awards meeting will be held Saturday at 1:30 p.m. at the Wolfeboro Library.

Four students from four area schools will vie for a monetary gift from the chapter after writing an essay on a particular topic.

The essays are then judged by a panel. There is one winner. The students are then invited to a luncheon on April 18 at the Holiday Inn in Concord where the state winner is announced.

The purpose of the DAR Good Citizen Committee is to recognize and reward high school seniors who exemplify the qualities of a good citizen: dependability, service, leadership and patriotism.

This program is open to senior-class students enrolled in accredited public or private secondary schools.
