You won’t want to miss the rare opportunity to see Men of Worth, particularly, if you’re a fan of Irish or Scottish heritage.
Men of Worth will perform at the Orpheum Theatre/Wiegand Auditorium on March 17 at 3 p.m.
Experiencing their authentic Celtic music is like visiting a different place and time without leaving home and provides a great way for everyone to feel Irish when celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.
Men of Worth is James Keigher from Country Mayo in west Ireland and Donnie Macdonald from the Isle of Lewis off the west coast of Scotland.

What started out in 2007-2008 as numerous separate groups needing a home for their activities, to becoming the PSSC (Pondera Shooting Sports Club) was an impressive achievement, but little did any of the initial leaders know back then that we would be expanding in 2013, thanks to the Mary Ellen Brownell Family and Pondera County Commissioners.
The PSSC has out grown its original plan and is adding on to accommodate the expanding needs of the community. What originally was a couple of acres has expanded into 4.5 acres and now will expand to 9.45 acres.
The groups in need of a facility in 2007 were Pondera County 4-H shooting sports program (air rifle, air pistol and archery), Pondera Valley Small Bore rifle league, Hunter Safety needed a facility to teach and shoot in (Rifle & Bow and Arrow), and the Conrad Trap Club was in very marginal shape and needed new equipment and facility also.
