082113 Dynamic Networking Group Fusion introducing itself to the Lakes Region (393 w/3 col Fusion)

LACONIA — The Launch into Fusion Networking event at the Margate on Lake Winnipesaukee on  Thursday, August 22 from 5-7:30 p.m. will introduce the public to the organization that brings together the future leaders of the Lakes Region.

The Lakeside Pavilion will be filled with more than 200 members of the community, music by DJ B.O.B., interactive booths by local businesses, raffles and giveaways, a 50/50 drawing, light refreshments, and a cash bar.

As the official kickoff event for the organization, 'Fusion Networking' will be introduced to the Lakes Region. The idea is to get to know others in a casual social environment where connections will happen naturally because people enjoy doing business with those they know, like and trust.

Fusion NH looks to bring people together for social, civic, and business purposes. The organization was first known as the Lakes Region Young Professionals group as a committee under the Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce. As the group started to grow, it began to have a purpose of its own; bringing people together through social and civic opportunities for the betterment of the community. This inspired the group of individuals to create a separate organization with a new mission, and brought about the opportunity to distinguish and rebrand themselves.

''Being known as the Lakes Region Young Professionals group, didn't allow us to reach those that we were looking to get involved with our organization. The stigma attached to the words 'young' and 'professional' were holding us back from what we were looking to accomplish. It was time for a change – a fresh perspective,'' says Fusion President, Beth San Soucie. "Fusion is looking to make connections within the Lakes Region through activities that inspire people and provide a sense of community; with this comes the opportunity to build business and social connections along the way. This is the wave of the next generation of leaders – we're paving the way.''

Tickets can be purchased online at www.FusionNH.org for $10 or at the door for $15.

090613 Sailing School receives donation of Carolina Skiff (151 w/3 col Dalton )

GILFORD — The Lake Winnipesaukee Sailing Association sailing school, a non-profit organization, derives a portion of its funding from the generous donations of older boats by people in the Lakes Region community. Some of these boats are used in the program, while others are sold. Info This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

In July LWSA received the generous donation of a 14 foot Carolina Skiff with a 25 HP outboard. The boat was donated by Tom Dalton, a Belmont cabinet maker and contractor. This sturdy boat will be used by the sailing school as a chase/rescue boat.

The LWSA Sailing School has taught thousands of local youngsters from 7 to 16 years of age to sail over the past 26 seasons. The program has five nationally certified instructors who teach in a fleet of 27 sailboats and four motorboats. See www.lwsa.org
