Members of the Temple B'nai Israel of Laconia's fundraising committee held a kick-off meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 17, at O Steak and Seafood, to discuss the fourth year of the temple's "We Care" initiative, which produces entertainment events in order to raise funds for community services. Recipients for this year's events, scheduled for May 27 and Oct. 21, will be the Patriot Resilience Leadership Institute, which operates Camp Resilience to help soldiers recover their physical, emotional and mental well-being; and the soon-to-open Belknap House, which will offer resources and a cold-weather shelter for homeless families in Belknap County.
