The Insiders: Earthquakes and charity hoops will shake up your night

It sure is nice to know that living in New Hampshire means little threat of an earthquake.

Or does it? Well you’re going to have to attend tonight’s discussion at the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center to find out.

Dr. John Ebel, a geophysicist, will be on hand to talk about the natural disaster in the New England area. Ebel will discuss where and how often earthquakes happen in New England, where damaging earthquakes have taken place in the past and what the potential effects would be if a strong earthquake were to strike somewhere in the region. He will either terrify you into moving someplace free of earthquakes or put your mind at ease. Our guess is the latter, but what do we know? We’re not geophysicists. We just dressed up like them last Halloween.

The talk begins at 7 p.m. and cost is $10, $9 for seniors/students and $7 for children.

But if you’re looking for some athletic entertainment, then Merrimack Valley High School is the place to be. That’s where the Harlem Wizards will take on the Merrimack Valley School District all-stars at 6:30 p.m. All proceeds from the charity hoops game will benefit the family of Haley Roy, a 15-year-old student battling lymphoma. Tickets are $14, $12 for students. Doors open at 5:45 p.m.

For the ladies out there looking to do a little networking, check out the Woman’s Club of Concord’s First Friday Social at the Chamberlain House (44 Pleasant St.) at 5:30 p.m. The cost to attend is $5 or a nonperishable food item. The socials are held the first Friday of each month.
