Thank you!

What a great turnout! About 200 people attended the 2018 One Book One Valley finale on October 25.  We raised $950 for the Mountain Rescue Service and Androscoggin Valley Search and Rescue.

Thank you to Ty Gagne for a wonderful presentation, and to all of our readers from the valley and beyond.

Support Search & Rescue

mountain rescue serviceAs readers of Where You’ll Find Me know, the search and rescue mission described in the book highlights the critical need for trained volunteers and professionals to manage these complex and challenging rescues. Ty Gagne, author of this year’s book, has asked that his speaking fee be donated to Mountain Rescue Service (MRS) and the Androscoggin Valley Search & Rescue (ASVAR).  For readers who wish to support the MRS or ASVAR personally, there will be a donation jar at Gagne’s talk at Kennett High School on October 25th. Tax deductible donations to either organization can mailed or sent online using information posted on their websites: http://www.nhmrs.org/donations/ and https://avsarnh.org/donations/

New Hampshire Fish & Game supports its rescue-related expenses with the sale of Hike Safe cards. You can purchase one at https://wildlife.state.nh.us/safe/
