‘It’s Not About the Hike’

Editor’s note: The date of the event was incorrectly published in Thursday’s calendar. Below is the correct date.

The Jaffrey Civic Center is pleased to host the presentation “It’s Not About the Hike,”conducted by Nancy Sporborg and Pat Piper. This will take place Monday, April 28, at 7 p.m. in the 1st floor Auditorium-Gallery.

“It’s Not About the Hike” is a presentation that will bring you into your heart, lift your spirits, and inspire you to climb that next mountain in your life.

This hour-long program highlights the journey of two 50-plus non-hikers who one day decided to climb the 67 mountains in New England over 4,000 feet. Nancy Sporborg and Pat Piper are two ordinary women who went on an extraordinary journey over the mountain summits and into their hearts. This is the story of what they found inside themselves as they hiked over 1,600 miles to the tops of over 244 mountains through all four seasons.

This presentation is for everyone — hikers and non-hikers, people who are sedentary or active, outdoor enthusiasts and indoor homebodies, 10-year-olds and 90-year-olds and everyone in between. The presentation is not about the hike; it is an inspirational and motivational program about pushing ourselves outside of our comfort zones, overcoming our fears, finding our passions and living our lives to the fullest.

This talk is a multi-media presentation including movies, music and photographs. It is both humorous and touching, as the speakers share about their personal lives in a way that makes the message and learning universal.

The book, “It’s Not About the Hike,” will be offered for sale after the presentation.

The Jaffrey Civic Center is located at 40 Main St. (next to Library, parking in rear.) For more information,call the Center at 532-6527, or email jaffreycntr@aol.com.
