"B-52 - Bomber Down!" will be presented by Rick Lewis in the Folk Meeting House, 1711 Springs Rd., Springs, PA 15562.  He will present the fascinating true story of a B-52 bomber that crashed in Savage River State Forest in 1964 along with the recovery efforts.  This incident was probably the worst crash with nuclear weapons on American soil.
