LACONIA — Laconia Mayor Mike Seymour recently visited Opechee Cove Beach and Laconia Middle School to plan his route for the Ninth Annual Turkey Plunge.
Seymour, a long-time plunger in support of the Salvation Army, discussed his plunge strategy with official Plunge mascot, Tommy Turkey. "This is a tremendous family fun-oriented event each year" said the Mayor. "I encourage Lakes Region families to come down to the Beach on Saturday, November 23 11 a.m. to either take the Plunge, cheer on those who Plunge or enjoy the post-Plunge luncheon" Seymour added.
This year's luncheon will again feature food and drink from some of the area's best known restaurants.
Leading that group for the ninth year in a row will be Patrick's Pub and they will be joined by O Steak & Seafood, Fratellos, Kitchen Cravings, T-Bones/Cactus Jack's, Hart's, and the new Junior's Crush House. Beverages will be provided by Lago and Coca-Cola of Northern New England while culinary arts students and faculty from the Lakes Region Community College will handle serving the chili, chowder, soups and stews donated as well as preparing mouth-watering desserts.
Lunch is free for Plungers and open to the general public for a modest $5 donation. Every luncheon attendee will be entered into several raffle drawings for gift certificates donated by local merchants. Anyone interested in registering to Plunge, forming a team of 2-25 members or in donating in support of a Plunger and the Salvation Army may visit the Plunge website at www.saturkeyplunge.org or by calling the Salvation Army at 524-1834.
