To the editor,
Hats off to the Ladies of the Lake! We salute their many contributions to the Lakes Region and thank Brenda Polidoro, the Laconia Historical and Museum Society, and the Laconia Public Library for the lovely displays recognizing the work done by these dedicated ladies in our community.
We also wish to acknowledge the support of the many women's organizations that have awarded scholarships totaling of $215,660 from 1956 through 2012 to our local college-bound students through the Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation. The following were founding members of the Foundation in 1956: Laconia Emblem Club, Lakeport Woman's Club, and Laconia Woman's Club. Over the years, they were joined by the Opechee Garden Club, Lochmere Woman's Club, and Zonta Club of the Lakes Region. We also wish to mention the past support of the Altrusa Club, American Legion Auxiliary, VFW Auxiliary, and the Laconia Business & Professional Women's Club.
