The Bedford Public Library Foundation will hold its annual Fall Gala benefit at the Bedford Library on Sunday evening November 4 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
The evening begins with wine tasting and hors d’oeuvres, followed by a talk by author Joe Hill.
Using search and rescue incidents from his book “Critical Hours - Search and Rescue in the White Mountains”, and/or from the Accidents column he writes for Appalachia, the journal of the AMC, Sandy Stott will give people insights into the challenges and work of NH's search and rescue professionals and volunteers. In all seasons and often at night, these rescuers put down whatever they are doing, pick up their ready-packs and head into the mountains to help those of us in trouble. And there seem to more of us bumping into difficulty each year.
