Matthew Thornton DAR members attend service

Four members of the Matthew Thornton Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution in Nashua attended the 67th N.H. State Organization of DAR’s service at the Cathedral of the Pines in Rindge on Aug. 9.

At the service were Laurie Alliegro, Ellie Freeman, Judy Eriksen and D. Quincy Whitney, who is also the author of “Hidden History of New Hampshire,” an anthology of 60 stories about the Granite State’s most important legacies. The book was a research project for the Smithsonian in 1999 when New Hampshire was the featured state at the American Folklife Festival in Washington, D.C. Two stories in the book share the history of the Altar of the Nations and the Women’s Memorial Bell Tower at the Cathedral of the Pines. The evening before the service, DAR State Regent Phyllis M. Gagnon hosted a banquet in Nashua, which Alliegro, Eriksen, Freeman and Whitney attended along with fellow Matthew Thornton members Grace McGinnis and Nancy Paquin.
