LACONIA — The Laconia Youth Football and Cheer Association has dropped its registration fee for 2014 for all children interested in playing football or cheerleading.
LYFCA President Rod Roy says the organization's agreement with Laconia High School to operate the concession stand at the new Bank of New Hampshire Stadium resulted in a major increase in revenue.
Roy made the announcement at Saturday's annual dinner and awards banquet held at the high school.
He said that the organization's board of directors recently voted to waive the registration fee for all participants and is hoping to increase participation to the point where it has a full roster of teams. Last year 96 youth played for the organization's teams and the registration fee was $100.
Roy said that participation has dropped in recent years and that the association is hoping to see that increase now that there is no registration fee.
Peter and Cheryl Hebert were honored as volunteers of the year and received the Thomas Kubicki Award.
