To The Laconia Daily Sun,
I am proud and happy to say I have only missed one Multicultural Market Day because I had to go to a wedding at Waterville Valley. Carol Pierce and her committees over the years have made it better and better. This year I invited a friend who had never gone. She could not get over how great it is and also, how everyone is happy to be there. Not one mean-spirited, pushy, shoving, cursing person anywhere.
Colonial Theater needs to be restored. We have good food down town but a Greek restaurant would be nice. When you see the ocean of people eating ethnic food at Multicultural Market Day, you know people crave food they do not want to bother with at home.
Nobody misses Bloom's or Sundial more than I do, but it takes more than a one woman committee to keep downtown prosperous. How sad that some people feel there is nothing downtown.
We also have a great library, with many free programs, displays, and helpful great staff. I am proud to live in the middle of all this. Come on down and join the fun.
Oh, and there is our five-day-a-week Senior Center. Even though there are many old people who go there they are still volunteering and helping one another.
I could go on and on but just ask me.
