LACONIA — The Lakes Region Salvation Army is announcing a date change for its annual fundraiser, the Turkey Plunge. This year's family fun event will take place on Halloween, Saturday, October 31 at Opechee Beach at 11 a.m.
"Our committee, in consultation with Tommy Turkey, decided we might attract more plungers for charity by moving our date up by three weeks to coincide with all the family activities that weekend" said Salvation Army Commanders Captains Nora and Scott McNeil. "After ten years of plunging just prior to Thanksgiving, we felt the earlier date would be more appealing since the air and water temperatures will be slightly warmer and more folks will be home in the area versus traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday" the McNeils added.
The couple has promised a new helper for Tommy Turkey at the Plunge. This year he'll be joined by Pat the Pumpkin. Also new this year will be an opportunity for "land lubbers" to support the good works of the Salvation Army by helping to sponsor a youth plunger.
"We like to call this new effort the chance to take the Plunge without getting wet" said Captain Nora McNeil. She explained that fundraising by youth wishing to Plunge can be difficult with many competing organizations plus the time involved. By asking older community members to sponsor a plunger, the Turkey Plunge hopes to generate more plungers overall.
Anyone interested in more information about Turkey Plunge 2015 or how to sponsor a student plunger is urged to check the Turkey Plunge website at: www.use.salvationarmy.org/laconia.
For now, mark your calendars for Turkey Plunge 2015 on Halloween, Saturday October 31st. The fun starts at 11 a,m. at Opechee Beach.

LACONIA — Got Lunch! Laconia will be hosting a training session this Friday, June 12, at 5 p.m. in the basement of the Congregational Church, located in downtown Laconia, across from the Laconia train station. Due to ongoing construction, access to the church will only be available through a rear door, accessed from the community parking lot behind the church.
If interested in being a part of what is anticipated to be a need for 14 2-person delivery teams every Monday, please attend this training. In recent years the number of volunteers has allowed us to use most delivery folks for only 5 of the 10 weeks of the summer season.
Got Lunch! Laconia is in its fifth year, and delivers a week's worth of healthy lunch fixings to any Laconia school child who requests it. The program operates for the entire summer, when the schools are not in session, and seeks to provide the nutrition that children receive during the school year through the free or reduced price lunch program. Plan to attend even if you have driven a route before.
Delivery training includes a Laconia Police Department safety briefing, a review of forms and maps used to deliver, and the completion of volunteer liability waiver forms and driver's license checks. The required forms are available online at www.gotlunchlaconia.org and may be downloaded and filled out prior to the training. The meeting is expected to last from 60-75 minutes.
For more information, visit www.gotlunchlaconia.com, or contact Rev. Paula Gile at 524-0668.
