Lunch and Learn: The Peterborough Hospital

June 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Before the Peterborough Hospital opened its doors in June of 1923, people needing hospital care had to travel to Keene or Nashua often over rough roads and through bad weather. At this Lunch & Learn program, we will examine the community efforts and generous gifts that led to the establishment of today’s Monadnock Community Hospital. We will also look at the role of the 1918 Flu Pandemic in the founding of hospital.

Lunch & Learn programs begin at noon with a light lunch of pinwheel wrap sandwiches, salad, and chips. After the meal, guests enjoy a special dessert with coffee or tea while listening to a lively illustrated talk.


Tickets are $18/ $15 for Monadnock Center members. Tickets may be purchased online below or call us at (603) 924-3235.
