Published DateLACONIA — The Belknap Mill Society at the Belknap Mill in Laconia will be saying a heartfelt thank you to volunteers and community supporters at the annual Recognition Luncheon on Wednesday, June 19 at 11:30 a.m. The public is invited to the luncheon, which will be catered by Curt's Caterers.
"The 1823 Belknap Mill is the Official Meetinghouse of NH," explains Belknap Mill Society interim executive director Andre Paquette. "We operate year round as a non profit center for art, history and education. Our many programs, events, concerts and exhibits could not take place but for the generosity of the community. This includes individuals, Mill members and businesses who donate in a number of ways to the Mill during the year."
This year the Belknap Mill Society event will recognize many special people and businesses, as well as volunteers who help with such intensive events as the fourth grade school program, overseeing the machinery and tours in the Power House and Machine Room exhibits, and much more.
Those who wish to attend the event should call 524-8813 to reserve; tickets are $10 per person.
Currently being shown in the first floor art gallery is an exhibit titled ''A View From the Porch''. The exhibit features black-and-white and color photography by Judith Rothemund of previous bike week images taken from the vantage point of the Handy Landing store. The exhibit runs until June 30.
