LACONIA — Walk NH Week is designed to encourage people of all ages to get out, get moving and participate in a one to three mile community walk. Several years ago, Governor John Lynch proclaimed June 1-7 as Walk NH Week, as a way to promote walking and help keep New Hampshire residents on a healthy path. The goal of Walk NH Week is to inspire participants to continue walking as part of a healthy lifestyle long after the June event's end.
This yearly event aligns perfectly with the work of Laconia Health and Wellness Academy, an initiative in the Laconia School district to make Laconia Schools some of the healthiest schools in the state.
So get out and join Mayor Ed Engler and Superintendent of Schools Terri Forsten for a walk.
This morning Laconia High School students will walk to the WOW Trail and back with Superintendent Forsten and grade 6 from the Middle School will walk to the WOW Trail and back at 9:30 a.m. with Forsten, Mayor Engler and City Manager Scott Myers.
At 9:30 a.m. Thursday Elm Street School students will walk to Leavitt Park and back and will be led by Nick Ford with Kathy Berman of the Lakes Region Partnership for Public Health, Superintendent Forsten, Sally Minkow and Carolyn Muller of LRGHealthcare and Mayor Engler taking part.

''Following a new national model, the Plymouth Regional Chamber of Commerce is now offering a tiered membership investment program that is based on the values the Chamber offers the company and not by the number of employees.''
