LACONIA — New Hampshire Humane Society announces a new partnership with Crucon Cruise Outlet, who signed on as event sponsor for the animal welfare agency's annual auction, Paws for a Cause Comedy Night and Auction hosted at Church Landing, Meredith, New Hampshire August 8.
Shelter spokesperson Marylee Gorham said, "Homeless pets in the Lakes Region have a new, powerful advocate; we are thrilled to have Crucon Cruise Outlet, based in Moultonborough, join us as the top sponsor for our biggest fundraising event of the year."
The event takes place at Church Landing and will allow animal lovers from all over the state, and those who summer in the Lakes Region to show their support for the Laconia based animal adoption center.
Sandy Cleary, President and owner of CruCon is also excited: "We have many impassioned animal lovers on our staff, several of which have adopted pets from the NH Humane Society, including me. We are proud to contribute to such a dynamic organization." CruCon, which is one of the top providers for cruises in North America, has donated over $100,000 to local non-profit organizations in the past year alone. Said Cleary, "When we give back to our community, we all win."
Executive Director, Mary Di Maria said, "each year we hope to raise more than the year before. The last three years have proven we have a winning formula in terms of this event. Yes folks know there is neglect and cruelty in the world, but this event allows them to make a difference in an animal's life".
Tickets are available. Call 603-524-3252x309 or on line www.nhhumane.org.

LACONIA — Weirs Times and Cocheco Times Editor. Brendan Smith, will be at the Lake Winnipesaukee Museum on Wednesday, August 7 at 7 p.m., to tell some of the adventures he has had over the years in adjusting to life as a Flatlander from Long Island, New York.
Brendan has been recounting these humorous tales, as well as other topics pertaining to New Hampshire, in his weekly "F.O.O.L in New Hampshire" column that has appeared in the Weirs Times since 1995.
Brendan has recently compiled some of the very best of those early columns in his first book "The Flatlander Chronicles" which will be premiered at the event.
"The book is something I have thought about doing for years," said Smith. "A lot of folks have been asking me to do it so I finally sat down to the task. It was a lot of fun rereading some of those early stories and I hope people have as much fun reading them, maybe for the first time."
From raking the roof to to buying firewood for the first time to spending a morning at the dump, Brendan will tell some of the many adjustments he learned to make.
Copies of "The Flatlander Chronicles" will be available for sale and Brendan will be happy to sign copies.
This presentation will be held in the new, renovated, air-conditioned lecture room at the museum.
The presentation is free to members of The Lake Winnipesaukee Historical Society and $5 for non-members with all proceeds going to benefit the Historical Society's ongoing renovations.
The Lake Winnipesaukee Museum is located on Rte. 3 in The Weirs next door to the Funspot Family Entertainment Center. The museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
For more information call 603-366-5950 or visit them on the web at www.lwhs.us.
