Press Release ( - LITCHFIELD, Conn. - Jun 20, 2017 - Please join us for this special event co-sponsored with St. Anthony of Padua of Litchfield.

What would you do in the last hour of your life? This is the true story of Welles Crowther, whose actions on 9/11 offer a lasting lesson on character, calling and courage.  Alison Crowther, the mother of Welles, will discuss his life, his choices and his legacy.

On September 11, 2001 when the attacks on the World Trade Center began, Welles was no longer an equities trader. He became a firefighter.

The survivors didn’t know his name, but despite the smoke and panic, one of them remembered a single detail clearly: the man was wearing a red bandanna. Eyewitnesses report that the man spoke calmly, with authority, and was obviously well trained. He is reported to have saved many lives that day.

Tom Rinaldi’s The Red Bandanna is about a fearless choice, about a crucible of terror and the indomitable spirit to answer it. Examining one decision in the gravest situation, it celebrates the difference one life can make. Please join us for this special evening as the mother of Welles, Alison Crowther, discusses his life and legacy.
