Club plans annual St. Patrick's Day Breakfast

That pesky green rabbit is back with his basket of Irish blarney for the 12th annual Rick Barry Haverhill Exchange Club St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast.

The event is March 14 from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at DiBurro’s function hall in Ward Hill. Breakfast will be served promptly at 7:45 a.m. The event will also feature music by the Square Riggers, a 50/50 raffle and Irish humor. Proceeds support child abuse prevention programs and will go to the Michael B. Christensen Community and Family Support Center in Lawrence. Organizers have arranged for a surprise greeting at the door.

The Exchange Club has raised more than $100,000 for child abuse prevention programs through this annual breakfast. The club also sponsors a variety of programs, including Junior Police and Fire Prevention education; Youth of the Year & ACE Award; So Proudly We Hail, which honors citizens and businesses for displaying the American flag; a Book of Golden Deeds program; and Freedom Shrines at local schools and libraries. Tickets, $25 each if purchased by March 8 and $30 after that date, may be purchased online at www.haverhillexchangeclub.com by clicking on the PayPal button. More information is available from Pam Nolin at 978-771-8122.

Students to perform ‘High School Musical 2’

Students at Whittier Regional Vocational Technical High School will perform “High School Musical 2” on March 15 and 16 at 7 p.m. and March 17 at 2 p.m. in the school auditorium.

Tickets are $6 in advance and $8 at the door. The humorous dialogue and high-energy music like “You’re the Music in Me,” “Fabulous” and “Work This Out” have encouraged the young actors to put their often tumultuous lives in perspective, they said, and garner some appreciation that may not have otherwise come until later in life. More information is available by calling 978-373-4101. The school is at 115 Amesbury Line Road.
