MEREDITH — The Meredith/Inter-Lakes Alumni Association met recently to put together its Annual Giving Letter. This is the Association's main fund raiser for the year and the letter was sent out to all alumni that are currently in the association's database.
Classes which hold reunions are asked to send a copy of their updated class list to The Meredith/I-L Alumni Assoc., PO Box 1076, Meredith, NH 03253
The money that is raised from this fund raiser is mainly used to continue the association's yearly scholarships that are given to worthy seniors at Inter-Lakes High School. For the past 2 years the association has been able to award three- $1,000 scholarships.
Donations from the fund raiser are also used to help support the Annual Alumni Gathering, which is held each year on the first Sunday in June. This event gives all alumni the chance to reconnect with friends and class mates. The 2014 annual event will be on June 1 in the Winnipesaukee Ballroom at the Lake House at Mill Falls. The Alumni Association will be celebrating its 90th Anniversary.
Each year the 50 year Class members are the honored guests of the Alumni Association, and in 2014 the Class of 1964 will be honored. Carolyn Schoenbauer along with a committee of classmates is heading up the reunion plans and the class is looking to connect with all their classmates. The Alumni Association is also looking for alumni members who might be able to give a little of their time to help with the associations duties. Call Ann Sprague at 677-2196 for more information.

GILFORD — Citing an opportunity to develop new business in northern New England and central New Hampshire, Consolidated Electrical Distributors has recently leased space in a Route 11 strip mall.
Under a five-year lease, Consolidated Electrical Distributors (CED) will occupy 8,100 square feet in the former State of New Hampshire Liquor Store location on Old Lake Shore Road, adjacent to the movie theater. CED serves the commercial, industrial and retail markets in the central and northern New Hampshire regions, including Belknap, Carroll, Coos and eastern Grafton counties.
With several vehicles and a staff of approximately seven people, Consolidated Electrical is poised to embrace a demanding and rebounding new building and renovation marketplace. CED is the exclusive area distributor of Square D products, a preeminent American manufacturer of electrical controls and distributors.
According to General Manager Mike Mains, the contractors in the area have extremely tight schedules and meeting their delivery demands is key to CED's success.
"Our customers are contractors who are working on tight deadlines. Time is money," said Mains. "Only CED can provide delivery of electrical supplies the same day the order is placed. Same-day service is what sets us apart from other wholesale distributors. Our mission is to simply delivering the best products in a more timely manner."
Mains, who has been with the company for 17 years, had been manager of the firm's Dover location. A key individual in the selection of the new space, Mains says location was the driving factor for the CED opening in the Gilford location. "This spot has a lot going for it. Being located right off the by-pass with ample parking, the Gilford location gives our customers quick and easy access to the building and the needed items."
Kevin Sullivan of Weeks Associates Commercial Realtors, brokered the deal for CED, with Summit Realty Partners of Lexington, MA, representing the building's owner. The managing broker for Summit Realty was Frank Normandin, who grew up in Laconia and retains local family and business connections in the Lakes Region area.
