Thru Hiking the Appalachian Trail
6:15 PM - 7:45 PM

Those who attend this program will be treated to a modern day adventure. Sam Ducharme set out on a 2180 mile, 14 state backpacking trip from Springer Mountain, Georgia to Mt. Katahdin Maine. During his six month journey he documented the rugged beauty of the Appalachian Mountains, the wildlife, the hardships encountered on the trail, as well as the people, culture and humanity at its finest. Come join him as he takes you through the trail towns, over the mountaintops and through the backcountry. The images and stories will leave you with a renewed awe of the beauty of our country and its people.

See his gear, how he cooked, and hear what it is like sleeping in a hammock for six months through three seasons.

You will also hear how Sam returned to the trail the following year, connecting with aspiring Thru Hikers, paying it forward, and his return to the summit of Katahdin one year later.

Sam Ducharme is a retired K9 Officer and is a lifelong resident of Connecticut. He has two adult sons, both serving in the United States Air Force. As an avid outdoorsman, and finding the empty-nest, Sam decided to buy a backpack and a plane ticket to Georgia. From there, he started walking north. With no prior backpacking experience, he learned on the trail. Gear, trail nutrition, enduring the elements, and the logistics involved in a long distance backpacking trip were hard lessons. After 20 years working within Connecticut’s prisons, the search for a positive recharge resulted in a life changing journey.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the West Library.

Welcome to the Graveyard
6:15 PM - 7:45 PM
"Welcome to The Graveyard", is a virtual tour of West Newbury’s cemeteries and gravestones.  Taking us from colonial burial grounds, through the rural cemetery movement of the 19th century and into 21st century locations, we examine why we have cemeteries and gravestones, why they look like they do and how styles and art have evolved over almost 400 years.  Prior to the show date, The Girls will hit the road and go through the town cemeteries, taking pictures for use in building the presentation with as much local content as possible.  This program has been tailored for many different towns and groups, presenting to historical societies, genealogy groups, libraries and others for almost twenty years!
 
The Gravestone Girls create art pieces using the primitive carved images from the faces of old New England gravestones.  Our creations include decorative wall plaques, magnets, coasters and also incorporate salvaged architectural and antique materials to make one of a kind pieces.  In addition to the art we create, The Gravestone Girls also lead cemetery tours, teach gravestone rubbing classes and lecture about gravestone art, history and symbolism to educate on these beautiful and historic spaces.

This program is generously sponsored by the Haverhill Bank, West Newbury.
