LACONIA — The Community Action Program Belknap-Merrimack Counties Inc. (BM-CAP) will hold its annual March for Meals walk-a-thon on Saturday, May 17 at 9:30 a.m. The walk will raise funds and awareness for the Meals on Wheels program.
In the past years the walk took place only in Concord, however this year BM-CAP has announced a second walk on the WOW Trail in Laconia. The 2.6 WOW Trail walk begins at Lakes Region Community Services at 719 North Main Street.
Meals on Wheels is a critical program which provides up to five hot, home-delivered meals a week and a daily wellness check to home-bound and a disabled adults. In 2013, BM-CAP served an amazing 250,000 meals to more than 1,400 people; amounting to 30,000 meals over their state contract. Government funding does not cover the cost of each meal so local fundraisers such as March for Meals are essential to meet that need.
To make a donation or for more information call the CAPBMCI Elder Services Department at 225-3295.

Fundriaser for Laconia Boy Scout Troop 68 @ Patricks
LACONIA — Patrick's Pub and Eatery in Gilford is helping to raise funds for Boy Scout Troop 68 in Laconia.
Lunch and dinner patrons at Patrick's now through Thursday can help to support the Scouts by mentioning the troop, and Patrick's will donate a portion of their bill to the troop.
The proceeds from the event will go directly to support the Scouts and their activities. Troop 68 has enjoyed continuous growth in membership over the last year and with that growth comes the need for more equipment. Currently Troop 68 is hoping to acquire more camping supplies to be used in upcoming summer activities.

LACONIA — American mountaineer Ed Webster will narrate a PowerPoint lecture on climbing the world's tallest peak — the hard way — on Wednesday, May 15 at the Laconia Public Library at 7 p.m. (Rotary Hall).
In 1988, Webster and three partners ascended a never-before-attempted route up Mt. Everett's most dangerous side — from Tibet — without the assistance of oxygen bottles, radios or a Sherpa team to carry the usual food and equipment.
"My Storm Years on Everest" details this audacious climb. Webster personally reached the south summit of the mountain — at 28,700 feet, just 300 feet shy of the main summit — then led his partners down a storm-bound, avalanche-plagued, four-day descent off the mountain — without food, badly frostbitten and very near death. Each climber lost toes, and, because of extensive photography on summit day, Webster also lost eight fingertips.
Webster, 57, lives in Harpswell, Maine. His articles and photographs have been published in dozens of magazines and by Sierra Club Books and National Geographic. He has lectured worldwide.
