Date: 01/18/18 07:00 pm

North Conway Library presents:

“Walking the Coast-to-Coast Trail in England”

With Don & Betsy Gemmecke on Jan. 18 at 7 pm


The North Conway Public Library invites you to attend the first of our 2018 Thursday Night Program Series.  Don and Betsy Gemmecke will present on their experiences from their 192 mile walk on the Wainwright Coast-to-Coast Trail across England last year.  This event is on Thursday night, January 18, at 7 p.m. at the Weather Discovery Center on Main Street in North Conway Village.


The start of their trek was from the West at the coastal town of St. Bees, through the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and the North York Moors to the fishing port of Robin Hoods Bay on the East Coast. This slide presentation will share their challenges and expertise for those who might want to walk this beautiful trail or provide enjoyment for those who want to see pictures of the villages, scenery, and accommodations along the way.


Betsy Gemmecke has lived in the Valley for over 40 years and has done many presentations in the Mount Washington Valley through the Granite State College-  Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI).  Her husband Don, loves to photograph, paint, and also share his travel experiences.  Together they have traveled throughout the United States and have taken several long distance walking trips in Europe.  Their ability to entertain a crowd makes this a must attend event in the valley. 


This program will be held at the Weather Discovery Center; no reservations necessary.  There will be time after the presentation for questions and discussion.

Homemade cookies will be served and coffee is generously provided by Frontside Grind in North Conway.


The program is free of charge, although donations to the Library are greatly appreciated.  For more information about the program, please call the library at 603-356-2961.
