LACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room will host Lisa Marie and the All Shook Up Blues Band on Friday, December 13 at 8 p.m.

Not only a blues shouter in the tradition of Big Joe Turner and Wynonie Harris, Boston native Lisa Marie carries on the sweet gospel soul of Sam Cooke, the yearning of Hank Williams Sr., and cartoonish fun of Louis Jordan. From jump-swing to swamp boogie, Piedmont blues to funky New Orleans grooves, her deep husky vocals express an unmistakable joy.

Fogarty scholarship established for children & grandchildren of employees at N.H. Veterans Home

LACONIA — The family of Daniel Charles "Chuck" Fogarty of Laconia, who died on July 12, 2013, at the New Hampshire Veterans Home, has transferred all the memorial gifts received in his honor to the Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation to set up a permanent fund in his memory that will support scholarships for the children and grandchildren of employees of the home.

Mr. Fogarty's widow, Natalie, explained, "My husband was a resident at the New Hampshire Veterans Home in Tilton, for almost two years. He was affectionately known as 'Coach' by most staff members because of his football coaching experience. His love of sports was apparent, but his military experience and education contributed in large part to the fullness of his life. He always placed great value on education. For this reason, and as a way of recognizing the staff of the New Hampshire Veterans Home for the skilled and loving care given to New Hampshire Veterans, our family has established this scholarship fund for the children and grandchildren of active employees of the New Hampshire Veterans Home."

Veterans Home Commandant Margaret "Peggy" LaBrecque extended her appreciation on behalf of the staff saying, "I feel everyone at the Veterans Home strives to fulfill the spirit of our motto, 'Still serving those who served'."

Scholarship Foundation President, Paulette Loughlin said, "We have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Fogarty when he served as donor representative for the Laconia Rotary Club. We know first-hand his commitment to helping students fulfill their educational and career goals and we are pleased to administer this ongoing fund in his honor."

Memorial donations may be forwarded to the Fogarty Fund at LRSF, PO Box 7312, Gilford NH 03247-7312.
