Exhibit reception at Laconia library postponed

LACONIA  — The Laconia Historical and Museum Society has postponed a a reception for its newest exhibition entitled "The Historic Churches of Laconia" from tonight until Monday. Feb. 2 at 6 pm at The Laconia Public Library. This exhibition will remain on display through the month of March.

In addition to the amazing architecture of Laconia's historic churches, comes a rich history ... those lost to fire and those rebuilt after fire, buildings raised to add a second level and steeples lowered ... and even those that have moved across town and face a new beginning. This exhibition was designed to share that rich history.

"I have always been in awe of the amazing architecture that surrounds us in Laconia – and our Historic Churches are an excellent example of that, says LHMS Executive Director, Brenda Kean. "Pulling this exhibit together has been a series of great adventures and new discoveries. I am so excited to share with our community the pieces that we have gathered ... some of them haven't been seen by the general public for more than 75 years."

This event is free and open to the public. For more information about this event, contact Laconia Historical and Museum Society at 603.527.1278, by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or on the web at LaconiaHistorical.org.

Winnisquam FFA members attend winter leadership camp

TILTON —  Eleven members of the Winnisquam FFA Chapter spent the weekend of January 16 at the annual NH FFA Winter Leadership Camp, where they improved their skills as young leaders, met other FFA members from around the state and participated in social activities. In all, over 50 students of agricultural education engaged in the event.

Campers participated in workshops on subjects such as diversity, ethics and goal setting. The seminar was led by Corey Flournoy, a former National FFA President and founding partner of Creative Outreach, a diversity and motivational consulting group. Assisting Flournoy were the six NH FFA State Officers, teens from across the state elected to leadership positions by their peers.
NH FFA Leadership Camp has been held annually for more than 16 years, and remains one of the organization's most popular activities. It is funded in part by the NH FFA Foundation, with participants paying only a portion of the cost to attend. The event is held at the Brookwoods Conference Center in Alton, on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee. While at the event, the students meet and interact with other teens from some of New Hampshire's 14 agricultural education programs, sharing meals, workshops and recreational activities.

The FFA (formerly Future Farmers of America) is a national organization of over 610,000 members preparing for leadership and careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture. The organization has 7,665 chapters located throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. FFA's mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. Local, state and national activities and award programs provide opportunities for students to apply knowledge and skills learned in the classroom. Visit www.nhffa.org for more information.
