  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,
On behalf of the trustees of the Belknap Mill Society, I wish to thank our wonderful supporters who participated in celebrating the 190th anniversary of the Belknap Mill.
More than 100 people joined the celebration on Nov. 8. Guests were welcomed to a meet and greet with photographer Annie Posnack, sponsored by LRGHealthcare, and the grand opening of the Belknap Mill's 1,000-sq.-ft. Fine Arts Gallery.
Guests were entertained by a '30s and '40s live musical group, Swing-a-Cat, and had a wonderful time sampling signature dishes of the Lakes Region's best restaurants. Miss Lakes Region, Kendall Wipff, stopped in to congratulate guests, while mingling and meeting with Laconia High School Mixed Choir students who surprised everyone with a "Flash Mob" singing "Roar" by Katy Perry.
"It is with sincere thanks that the trustees of the Belknap Mill thank our sponsors," stated David Stamps, board president. "Supporters of the Belknap Mill Society are just the BEST, and their continued generosity has been a sustaining element of our mission to preserve and protect the Belknap Mill while providing historic and artistic opportunities for all to enjoy."
