Irwin Automotive employees wearing pink uniforms this week

 LACONIA In support of National Breast Cancer awareness month, for the 3rd consecutive year, the Irwin Automotive group will wear a new uniform of pink in the month of October during the week of Oct 6-11. The Irwin Automotive Group has seen the struggles of employees, families and friends that were caused by a breast cancer diagnosis.

Today, one in eight women are at risk for a breast cancer diagnosis during her life. These statistics are staggering when you consider just how many women (and men) we all see each day at home, at work, or while picking up groceries that are affected by breast cancer. This health issue affects us all, and the Irwin Automotive Group is proud to do their part in promoting awareness and supporting all Lakes Region families managing a breast cancer diagnosis.

LACONIA — Tommy Turkey, the official mascot of the annual Salvation Army Turkey Plunge, stopped by the Laconia headquarters of the Army recently to meet the new pastor and one of the new commanders, Captain Scott McNeil. Captain McNeil and his wife, Captain Nora McNeil, assumed the leadership of the Lakes Region Salvation Army mission earlier this summer. The McNeils replaced Captains Steven and Sally Warren who have transferred to the Concord office.

“I’ve heard great things about the annual Turkey Plunge and how generous the Lakes Region community is in supporting it” said Captain Scott McNeil. “Nora and I are looking forward to this year’s Plunge on November 22nd at Opechee Beach in Laconia and Nora, Tommy and I urge folks to be thinking of possible teams to enter into the Plunge," McNeil added.

Scott McNeil will be in the first team to Plunge representing the Salvation Army. In hopes of generating more teams for this year’s Plunge, the Turkey Plunge committee is offering Tommy Turkey to visit businesses, schools, civic clubs and other organizations to promote and explain the Turkey Plunge.

Those interested in a visit from Tommy Turkey may call the Salvation Army at 524-1834. Anyone interested in registering for this year’s Plunge or making a donation to support a Team or individual Plunger may do so by contacting Alison at This email address is being protected from spambots.
