From the Office of Governor John Lynch

CONCORD - Gov. John Lynch and the Executive Council have recognized Agnes Sweeney of Boscawen as March's New Hampshire Volunteer of the Month. Gov. Lynch presented her with a commendation this morning at a ceremony in the State House.

Gov. Lynch partnered with VolunteerNH! to create the New Hampshire Volunteer of the Month awards. The honorees are selected on a rotating basis by Executive Council district by VolunteerNH!.

"New Hampshire's tradition of citizen involvement is one of our state's most cherished attributes. As Governor, I want to give those efforts more recognition - to encourage more people to get involved and to help preserve that tradition of civic engagement that makes New Hampshire so special," Gov. Lynch said.

Sweeney was chosen for the award for her active involvement with the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery and her long history of volunteer service at the Christa McAuliffe Planetarium and the New Hampshire State Library. Sweeney has volunteered at the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery every Monday morning for nearly three years. Both the VFW of New Hampshire and the American Legion have praised her for her service to veterans.
