Celebrating Granny D
Doris “Granny D” Haddock was a powerful force for clean elections, civic engagement, and democracy on the national stage. And she was certainly a well-known character in the Monadnock Region.
You're invited to join the Coalition for Open Democracy; Granny D's organization, PACE (Promoting Active Civic Engagement); Granny D’s organization, PACE (Promoting Active Civic Engagement); and KSC’s Mason Library on Thursday, January 24, from 2–4:30 p.m. at the Alumni Recital Hall in the Redfern Arts Center to celebrate the 103rd anniversary of Granny D’s birth and to remember her life and legacy.
Barbara Bates-Smith, an award-winning off-Broadway and touring actor, will present her two-act show, “Go, Granny, Go." Tattoo, the band that marched with Granny D during her Senate run in 2004, will play, and there will be remembrances, tributes and appreciations as well. Birthday cake and punch will be served.
