8th Annual Peter Makris Memorial Run, June 14. kicks of 91st annual Bike Week

LACONIA — What started as a motorcycle ride and biker party as a memorial tribute to deceased community leader Peter Makris in 2007, has turned into the kickoff event for Laconia Motorcycle Week, as well as an important fundraiser for the Laconia Fire Department and the Easter Seals NH "Veterans Count" program.

Sgt. Dan Clark, known as The Singing Trooper returns again to perform the Opening Ceremonies at the Peter Makris Memorial Run, June 14. He originally performed for the event in 2010 and again in 2013.

This year, as a special attraction, the Peter Makris Memorial Run will feature new VIP sponsor, G. Smith Motorsports

riding a brigade of collector Bourget Custom Motorcycles; this unique brand recently received Hollywood claim in the Expendables; movies starring Sylvester Stallone. Accompanying the Bourget Motorcycles will be the G. Smith private collection of high end V-8 Custom Choppers, brought to the Laconia Rally by this Louisiana firm that is coming to New England to enjoy some of the most scenic riding in the country.

The Peter Makris Memorial Run celebrates the life and service of Peter Makris, and is proud to raise the annual private funding needed for the Laconia Fire Department's Water Rescue Unit-an essential part of the emergency services to the Lakes Region. The Peter Makris Memorial Fund has also supports the Easter Seals New Hampshire, "Veterans Count" program to commemorate Makris' service as a US Marine. "We know Peter would want to support this cause that is so important to our community and country," says Cynthia Makris, president of the family-owned NASWA Resort and also of Laconia Motorcycle Week.

This year, an additional memory will be honored at the run--Paul Blizzard of Lakeport Landing Marina; Paul recently passed away but he, together with Peter Makris, was instrumental in purchasing the original boat for the Laconia Water Rescue team. "From day one, Paul supported us," says Fire Chief Ken Erickson, "He was always a behind-the-scenes guy and never wanted recognition, but now we'll get to recognize what he and Peter did to bolster our department to help save lives."

Registration, breakfast and line-up starts at the NAZBar & Grill, the Resort's lakefront hot spot. Commemorative t-shirts with a new logo designed by Harley Davidson artist, David Uhl, are included, and this year's shirt will be a special new custom design from the artist's apparel line. At 11 a.m. it's kickstands up for a police-escorted, feet-up ride around the lake.

The after-ride, features a bountiful luncheon buffet,thanks to the assistance of sponsor, InFusion Sales Group, an area food service provider. The NAZBar & Grill will rock with live music, raffles, "spirited" promotions and a silent auction to create a full-out "Biker Boogie" with an option for guests to roll up their jeans and cool their toes in the Lake.
