Extremely grateful for help with LHS band booster's fundraiser

  • Published in Letters
To the editor,
It is so rewarding to know that our community loves our students at Laconia High School!
On behalf of the Laconia Sachems Band Boosters, we would like to thank all who came to LHS Friday night, April 5, to support the band boosters' annual spring fundraiser. This year's event was a comedy night. The comics came from Manchester with the promise of a clean show. With that request comes the subjective interpretation of what this means. For all those who enjoyed the show, we are pleased. One comic was not as appropriate as the others and we apologize for that.
We are extremely grateful to our Silver sponsors, Conneston Construction Inc and Martin, Lord & Osman PA, and our Bronze sponsors, Clough Auto Body, Denoncourt, Waldron & Sullivan PA and Meredith Village Savings Bank. We would also like to thank Bank of New Hampshire, Stafford Oil, Wilkinson-Beane Simoneau-Paquette Funeral Home, Central NH Employment Services, Dr. Alan Kennell Orthodontics, Bob Merwin State Farm Insurance, Harts Turkey Farm Restaurant and NAPA Auto Parts for their gracious support and belief in what the booster group does for the music department at LHS. And last but not least, thanks to Larry and Amelia Frates for their wonderful emceeing of our event; they were fantastic!
The Laconia Sachem Band Boosters is a not-for-profit organization who support the mission of the LHS bands, chorus and color guard. We meet the first Wednesday of every month at 6 p.m. in the music room. Please consider joining us! Community support and involvement is vital to our success.
