Purpose of the Amos Fortune Forum
These discussions on topics of current interest carry on the discussions held more than two centuries ago in this same Meetinghouse, when the foundations of our republic were being established by men and women who struggled for freedom and for human dignity. The enthusiastic response of the individuals who have been invited to address the Forum reflects a similar spirit. Furthermore, the lectures are a continuing tribute to Amos Fortune, one of Jaffrey’s most distinguished citizens, given without compensation by members of the Monadnock community, their relatives and friends.
The Amos Fortune Forum, now in its 71st season, is free to the public. Operating expenses are partially offset by a generous annual bequest from the Grimshaw-Gudewicz Charitable Foundation, as well as by contributions from residents of the Monadnock Region.
