Career Partnership Program not possible without biz support

To the editor,
The Greater Meredith's Career Partnership Program is a collaborative effort between the Greater Meredith Program and the Inter-Lakes School District. The program offers job shadows, internships, guest speakers, volunteer and community service programs and a one day Job Fair.
This program would not be possible without the support of local businesses. We would like to thank one business in particular, Mame's Restaurant in Meredith. John Cook, owner of Mame's, has always been a big supporter of the Career Partnership Program through job shadows at his restaurant and also in the aeronautical industry, as John is also a pilot. Mame's had a "Music Fun Fest" on May 2nd. Local musicians Julia Velie; Phil and Jan Sangueldolce; Chris Mega; Chris Kelly; Dr. Steve Kelley; Julie Krisak and Matt Towle performed that night from 6-10 p.m. Community members came in to enjoy a nice dinner during that time. John Cook donated 50 percent of all dinner proceeds back to the Career Partnership Program to help our local students experience more career opportunities.
We wish to thank John, all of the musicians and community members who worked so hard to support such a great cause. Thank you so very much.
