The Insiders: Women and sawing do we need to say more?

When the Hurricane of 1938 roared through New Hampshire, it left a trail of devastation in its wake. Well, at least that’s what we’ve heard. Because in case you didn’t know, we weren’t actually born for another 42 years.

But luckily, Sarah Shea Smith knows a lot about the hurricane, especially when it comes to the aftermath at Turkey Pond. And tonight, Smith will be at the Pierce Manse (14 Horseshoe Pond Lane) at 7 to give a photo presentation, “They Sawed Up A Storm.”

It will chronicle a small group of women, who spent their days on the Turkey Pond shore operating a sawmill to help with the salvage efforts. Now we don’t know about you, but that sure does sound like a risky endeavor. But to be fair, risk is one of our favorite things after animals, chocolate and puns. The presentation is free and open to the public.

But if Alfred Hitchcock movies are more of your idea of risky, then head over to Red River Theatres. Tonight will be a continuation of Directors and their Craft, with a screening of North by Northwest at 7 and a post film discussion with Barry Steelman.
