LRCC Announces Summer Semester

LACONIA — Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) announces the finalization of LRCC's Summer Semester 2014 to begin Monday, May 19, for day, evening and online classes. More than 110 courses and workshops are being offered over four terms, day, evening, online, and hybrid (half of the classes meet in class and half are online for convenience and flexibility to move at one's own pace, yet get to meet and know the professors personally).

"LRCC's administration, faculty, and staff know that students come home in the summer and desire to 'get a jump' on their degrees and certificates from other institutions of higher learning," says LRCC Vice President of Student Affairs, Dr. Larissa Baia. "Transferability of LRCC courses is at an all-time high across the country and continues to improve."

Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice is offering 7-week Bereavement Support Groups

LACONIA — Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice is offering 7-week Bereavement Support Groups in two locations beginning in April. One group will meet in Laconia on Wednesdays from 4 p.m. pm and the other group will meet in Wolfeboro on Thursdays at 4 p.m. Each group consists of a series of 1½ hour meetings held each week for 7 weeks.

Support Groups give people the opportunity to discuss and learn ways of coping with their loss, to gain the support of others in safe and caring ways, and to learn about the grief process. Although grief is a unique experience through which each person finds his or her own way, there are common threads we all share when going through grief.

Pre-registration is required / The support group is offered free of charge.
To register for the group or for more information, call or email James Miller, Hospice Bereavement Coordinator to schedule an appointment.

PSU Alert Emergency Outdoor Siren Test Scheduled for March 25

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth State University will test its PSU Alert Emergency Outdoor Siren at noon, Tuesday, March 25.

The test will last about five minutes. The purpose of the PSU Alert Emergency Outdoor Siren is to notify campus and community residents, staff and visitors to an imminent threat or danger. Emergency management officials are urging residents, staff and patrons of local businesses to shelter in place when the siren is sounded.

The PSU Alert Emergency Outdoor Siren is located on a pole adjacent to the Hartman Union Building on High Street and should be audible outdoors for approximately a one-mile radius.

PSU's emergency alert communication systems will also be tested.

The PSU Alert Emergency Outdoor Siren is part of a comprehensive emergency alert system PSU has established to respond to emergencies.

The siren is tested twice a year (typically at noon on the third Wednesday in September and February) and otherwise will sound only when there is threat of imminent danger to those in the campus community.

Questions or comments regarding the PSU Emergency Alert Siren test can be sent to: Chief Public Relations Officer Timothy Kershner at 535-2476, or Environmental Health and Safety Manager Katie Caron at 535-2409, or This email address is being protected from spambots.
