Wright Museum to feature “A Company of Heroes”

As part of its Lecture Series, the Wright Museum will show the film, “A Company of Heroes,” on Tuesday, June 12. The film features interviews with many of the men not focused on in the book “Band of Brothers,” or in the television mini-series by the same name. The screening will be 7-8 p.m at the museum, located at 77 Center Street, Wolfeboro, NH.

Filmmaker Tim Gray, a national award-winning director, producer and writer, made “A Company of Heroes” and 20 other documentaries on the personal stories related to World War II. Gray is also the founder of the National World War II Foundation.

“An American who was 17 years old in 1941 is now 94 years old,” noted Michael Culver, museum executive director. “At present, we are losing 1,500 WWII participants per day…Consequently, this film is a rare opportunity to hear the stories of men from the 101st Airborne from the heroes themselves.”

The Wright Museum’s Lecture Series, sponsored by Ron Goodgame and Donna Canney, takes place every Tuesday through October. Admission is $3 for members and $8 for non-members. Seating is limited, and reservations can be made by calling (603) 569-1212.

The Wright Museum is open daily through Oct. 31 with hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.
