Anniversary Hike in Lebanon

Wednesday, October 10, 2018
Wish come true

Hey everyone! Its Rachael. I am fundraising for Make-A-Wish Foundation, and if I reach my goal I will get the chance to trek to Macchu Picchu! Make-A-Wish gives once in a lifetime experiences to children who are fighting life threatening diseases. I got the chance to study abroad in Italy last semester, and it changed my life. I would love to be able to help change the life of a child who deserves it. So please, help me reach my donation goal of 4,000. Every little bit makes all the difference.

LebanonAnniversary Hike

On Oct. 25, 1968, a Northeast Airlines passenger plane crashed near the top of South Peak on Moose Mountain. In what remains New Hampshire’s deadliest aviation accident, a total of 32 people died. With the upcoming 50th anniversary of the crash of Northeast Airlines Flight 946, the Aviation Museum of New Hampshire will sponsor a program this month about the accident as well as a hike to the site, which is off the Appalachian Trail in a remote part of Hanover. The program will take place at Granite Air Center at Lebanon Municipal Airport on Saturday at 8:30 a.m. The morning program on Saturday at Granite Air Center, 58 Airport Road, West Lebanon, is free and open to all. The hike, which involves a total of four hours traversing rugged terrain, is also free and open to anyone with a reasonable level of fitness. The program will run from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Transportation to and from the trailhead will be coordinated at the event for those who need it. For more information on the program or hike, contact Jeff Rapsis at jrapsis@nhahs.org or 236-9237.
