Community gathers to remember influential NH woman with down syndrome


MEREDITH - Dozens gathered on Wednesday in Meredith to remember a local woman with Down syndrome who was known for making a major impact on her community.

Annie Forts worked to end stigmas attached to those with physical and mental disabilities.

She won several awards for her work.

She started the Annie Forts Up Syndrome Fund in 1997 raising over $300,000 to help provide opportunities to those with Down syndrome.

She was 49-years-old.
