HAMPSTEAD -“Make Sure It’s Me is a play by the well-known TV producer and journalist Kate Wenner focusing on the often ignored topic of TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) in returning veterans of the Gulf Wars. ACT ONE of Portsmouth has presented the full play at the West Theater in Portsmouth but the organization has also put together a shorter version of the play for presentation is smaller group settings. It is this version that they will present on Tues., October 8, at 7:00 p.m., at the Hampstead Public Library.
Anyone who knows some one who has suffered a traumatic brain injury, whether from military service or in an accident in civilian life, will benefit from seeing this program. It explains and clarifies what TBI is and how it can affect the lives of not only those who have suffered the injury but those who share the lives of the injured.
The Friends of the Hampstead Public Library are excited to be able to bring this important program to the community. It is free and open to the public. Save the date, October 8, and plan to be at the library before it starts at 7:00 p.m. Stephanie Voss Nugent, the executive director of ACT ONE, Leslie Pasternak, the associate director, and Conan Marchi, a retired Army Sergeant will take part in the presentation.
Refreshments will be available at the program. Members of the Friends are asked to stay afterwards for the regular monthly meeting of the organization. There are always issues to discuss that affect the direction of the group and its service in support of the library.
