Wednesday, Oct. 29
The Andes Roundtable presents Tom Sears, a professor of accounting at Hartwick College and co-author of “Faces of Freedom, Lives of Courage.” A series of chance happenings in 2005 led Tom and  Radu Cristea (co-author) to travel to Romania. Their interest in uncovering more about Romanian Communism led to much research and countless interviews and the creation of this book, which was published in 2013. The  work focuses on nine individuals who survived the concentration camps during the Communist/Ceausescu era,  the horrors these people endured and the courage to see them through this particularly black chapter in their lives. Hunting Tavern, 7 p.m. 

Thursday, Nov. 6
The Auxiliary of Margaretville Hospital and Mountainside Residential Care Center will meet at 4 p.m. in Club Med at Mountainside. All are welcome.
