Homeschooling forum in Laconia Tuesday

LACONIA — Parents interested in homeschooling their children will have a chance to talk with experienced homeschoolers at the Laconia Public Library on Tuesday, September 24th from 3 to 5 p.m.

The event is presented by Central New Hampshire Homeschoolers, a group that organizes field trips and outdoor activities for area homeschool families. "Recently CNHH has been contacted by many people who are interested in exploring the homeschool option but need help getting started. There are resources available on-line but sometimes it's helpful just to sit and talk with someone who is already homeschooling, so we organized this event to give people that chance" said coordinator Linda Smith "Our panel includes homeschoolers who use a variety of methodologies to educate their children."

Nationally more than one million children are homeschooled but getting started can be daunting. There are many decisions to make when getting started. "We are fortunate in New Hampshire as our laws give parents a lot of flexibility to tailor an educational experience specifically for their child but because of that flexibility getting started can be overwhelming." said Linda "The purpose of the forum is to give parents new to homeschooling and people thinking of homeschooling the information they need to make the necessary decisions."

The discussion is offered free of charge, those interested may call 603-581-9148 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.

DAK Building Dedication Ceremony Held

MEREDITH — DAK Financial Group LLC., dedicated its recently remodeled building here last month in a ceremony at which  David Kutcher, founder and owner, dedicated the new building as a great tribute to his late friend, T. Gary Coyne.

Kutcher said Coyne had inspired him and his wife with the dream that the DAK building could be a place for retirees and pre-retirees to come and get planning assistance.

Reverend Scott Mitchell of the New Hampton Community Church spoke of Gary's unique spirit and someone who epitomized the entrepreneurial spirit. Most importantly, he loved life and was larger than life. Judy Coyne, mother of the late T. Gary Coyne, was presented with a key to the building and unveiled a portrait of her son that will hang inside DAK, in his memory. State Senator Jeanie Forrester (R-Meredith)  cut the ribbon to the building and a light lunch was served.
