Northeast Delta Dental Mount Washington Road Race Raises Much-Needed Funds For Local Health Services

Pinkham Notch, NH — The annual Northeast Delta Dental Mount Washington Road Race has a long history, and affects its participants, organizers and local residents in many different ways. For some of the world’s top athletes, this grueling, all-uphill race is a chance to either beat the course record or their personal best time. For other recreational runners, it’s a landmark test of their endurance and stamina, where simply finishing the race may be a lifelong goal. For the partnership that organizes the event—the Mt. Washington Auto Road and Northeast Delta Dental—it’s a chance to give back to the local community through a sizable annual donation to Coos County Family Health Services (CCFHS). For local residents in need of affordable, professional dental care, it’s a godsend.

The Glen House Receives Accolades—and Rebates—For its Energy Efficient Designs

Pinkham Notch, NH — A History of the White Mountains, and Mount Washington in particular, would be incomplete without an inclusion of the iconic Glen House, and the series of hotels that have shared its name and location. First opened in 1852 by Col. Joseph Thompson, the original Glen House was a remodeled farm house, expanded several times over the years, and ultimately destroyed by fire in 1884. Col. Thompson has the distinction of being the first person to drive a horse-drawn vehicle to the summit of Mount Washington in 1861, several weeks before the official opening of the Mt. Washington Carriage Road.

Jean’s Playhouse Rolls Out Fall Production: ‘Driving Miss Daisy’

Those familiar with Alfred Uhry’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play may know that it is Daisy Werthan’s crash of her Packard (not Rolls) that occasions her son, Boolie, to hire a driver for her to navigate the Atlanta neighborhood in which she makes her home. He interviews and hires an out of work, soft-spoken Black man to present to his genteel but opinionated Southern Jewish mother: and the two are a study in contrasts. Thus begins 25-year relationship that unfolds on stage as the two tentatively at first, then tenaciously, build a friendship that endures the many differences of their initial meeting.
