Celebration of Barbara Hunter's life to be held on July 31

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

It is with heartfelt sadness that I have joined a group to plan a Celebration of Life for Barbara Hunter, who passed on June 2nd. Barbara leaves a legacy of true dedication and vast contributions to our community that spans many decades in the Lakes Region and her home town of New Durham. The planning group from Belknap County, New Durham and UNH Cooperative Extension offices includes myself and Judy Buswell, Sandy McGonagle, Alida Millham, Gil Schohan, Tammy Emery, Sue Cagle, Charlene Baxter, Judy Bush, Cathy Allyn, Dot Martin Veisel, and Donna Swett.

The Celebration will be held on Wednesday, July 31st starting at 4 p.m. at the Historic Belknap Mill on Beacon Street in Laconia. Anyone attending can bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to a local food pantry. We are also contributing to a Memory Book, "Recipes for a Life Well-Lived" by writing our favorite memory of Barbara on 3x5 cards. For those of you who cannot attend and/or wish to honor Barbara, the Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation has set up a scholarship in Barbara's name. Donations can be sent to LRSF at PO Box 7312, Gilford NH 03247.

Any questions can be addressed to Judy Buswell at 524-6580 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
