PAL Officer Ben's Healthy Body/Healthy Minds Program

"Most of us, I believe, admire strength. It's something we tend to respect in others, desire for ourselves, and wish for our children. Sometimes, though, I wonder if we confuse strength with other words—like 'aggression' and even 'violence'. Real strength is neither male nor female; but it is, quite simply, one of the finest characteristics that a human being can possess.
~Fred Rogers"

A Christmas Story

Since 2009, during the holiday season, Fortin Gage has partnered with Byers' Choice LTD. to bring Gerald Dickens to Nashua to perform 'A Christmas Carol', along with other classic works by Charles Dickens. It's become a tradition so many of you look forward to, as do we! Unfortunately, Gerald's US tour will not take place in 2020 - but we do have great news for you!

Gerald recently filmed his one-man adaptation of his great-great grandfather's beloved 'A Christmas Carol' and Fortin Gage is a 2020 local sponsor for the film scheduled for release on Nov 26th - Thanksgiving Day

A special link (button below) is your key to help Fortin Gage continue our annual commitment to return a portion of proceeds from 'A Christmas Carol' right back into our community. In 2020, Nashua PAL and Great American Downtown will be the recipients of this tradition we started 12 years ago.

Rental of the film for 7 days will be offered for $20 for your whole family to enjoy. You can enjoy the sneak peek of the film at: https://vimeo.com/472582594/75e48b553d?_ke=
