Clean family fun is essence of the Weirs; let's keep it that way

  • Published in Letters
To The Daily Sun,
This letter is in response to Kathleen Kelley's letter to The Daily Sun in the June 29 issue:
The "Weirs", which is a section of the City of Laconia, is a family-oriented vacation area, with the exception of "Bike Week", a traditional event in June for the past 90 years. The resort owners here cater to families and guests from many different states. They come because of the clean water beach on Lake Winnipesaukee, the boating, arcades and rides for children, family restaurants and the beautiful mountain vistas surrounding the area. All this creates fond memories for adults and children. It is certainly not a place for a sex shop and if it is ever granted I would personally incite a petition to BANISH it from the Weirs.
What is here is unique — children laughing and playing on the beach, young and old holding hands and walking the boardwalk. Clean family fun. Let's keep it that way.
