Boys Scouts to honor three citizens May 22
Prominent local business leader Ann Regan Flynn, Team Haverhill heavyweight and financial consultant Tim Jordan, and beloved sports coach Don Wilson will be recognized for their outstanding contributions to the community on May 22, when they receive the Distinguished Citizen Award from the Yankee Clipper Council of the Boy Scouts of America. This award is for individuals who have been unselfish in their service to others and have demonstrated integrity and genuine concern for others in their professional and personal lives, making important contributions serving their fellow citizens, community, and nation.
Regan Flynn is president of Regan Ford, a Haverhill family business for 70 years. Her many philanthropic activities have included staunch support of the Tribute to Women, board membership of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Haverhill, Central Catholic Church, and the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce. Her priority now is Merrimack Valley Hospice, which helps people experience love and dignity at the end of their lives.
