Published DateMEREDITH — The Meredith Historical Society will begin its summer lecture series on Tuesday, June 4, at 7 p.m. with its presentation of the History of Firefighting.
Christopher Rousseau of Milford, dressed as Jedediah Franklin, Ben's "younger and much better looking brother", will tell the story of the men and women who protect our homes and communities from fire. He will discuss the origin of firefighting in America and talk of the contributions that the State of NH has made to the profession on a worldwide scale.
Rousseau originally began giving this presentation to firefighting students. It has become so well received that Meredith Historical Society has invited him to share it with the general public.
The program is free and open to the public although donations are welcomed. A very brief business meeting will precede the 7 p.m. gathering. Refreshments will be served following Rousseau's talk.
The Meredith Historical Society is located on Main St., Meredith. For more information contact Karen Thorndike, 279-2275,
