T-Bones conducts fundraiser for Turkey Plunge through November, 17

LACONIA — T-BONES Great American Eatery and Cactus Jack's of Laconia are taking part in the Turkey Plunge to benefit the Salvation Army of Laconia. As an annual tradition, Laconia T-BONES and Cactus Jack's employees collect donations amongst themselves and dress up to participate in the annual event.

Guests are encouraged to visit T-BONES and Cactus Jack's at 1182 Union Avenue in Laconia through Sunday, November 17, 2013. Every five dollars donated to the Salvation Army of Laconia at Laconia T-BONES and Cactus Jack's will earn guests a spin on the Donation Prize Wheel as a thank you to patrons for their support. The wheel is full of great prizes, intended to be a win, win for the guest and plunge team.

The Salvation Army is celebrating 120 years of service in the Lakes Region. This past year, they have given out over 17,000 meals and 7,000 food baskets and provided about 9,000 bed nights at the local Carey House shelter. Laconia staff will be present at the Turkey Plunge on Saturday, November, 23 at noon at Opechee Cove beach to take the plunge for the cause.

Jason Bolduc, T-BONES and Cactus Jack's general manager, said "The Turkey Plunge is an annual tradition for our employees and it's really such a great cause. Our guests' support helped tremendously last year and we're hopeful this year will be a success too!"

MOULTONBOROUGH — The Moultonborough Historical Society will hold its November meeting on Monday evening, November 18, at 6 p.m. at the Life Safety Building (fire/police station) on Route 25 in Moultonborough, and the program will be a potluck supper in honor of any and all veterans who wish to attend, followed by a short program to be determined.

The supper will be free to all veterans and their spouses; just bring your own place setting, and call Fran Vincent at 253-6250 or Kathy Garry at 476-2349 to make a reservation, so we can be sure and have enough "potluck" for all to enjoy. All others who wish to attend, please bring a dish to share, along with place setting.

Beverages including coffee, tea, and water will be provided. The usual meeting time, which is the second Monday evening of the month, would fall on Veteran's Day, so to avoid a conflict with the holiday, this month's meeting will be one week later than usual.
