LACONIA — The 39th Army Band will close out the Belknap Mill's Rotary Park outdoor summer band concerts on Thursday, Aug. 22 at 7 pm.

The band plays a variety of music, from rock to rousing patriotic tunes and will bring their unique sounds to the bandstand in Rotary Park, adjacent to the Belknap Mill on Beacon St. in downtown Laconia.

The free concert is open to the public and receives support from WEMJ. Just bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on in the park and enjoy the music.

"We have had a lot of interest in this concert, as well as the entire summer outdoor concert series," says Belknap Mill interim executive director Andre Paquette. "We are very grateful to our concert series sponsors (see an entire list of sponsors at www.belknapmill.org under the events section). The 39th Army Band will be performing as the Mill's way of thanking veterans who have served our country. We hope all veterans will come out for this free outdoor concert."

In the event of rain, the concert will take place inside the Belknap Mill on the third floor function space.

The Belknap Mill is the oldest unaltered brick textile mill building in the country and is designated as the Meetinghouse of NH.
