To The Daily Sun,
On behalf of the Lakes Region General Hospital Auxiliary I would like to extend its appreciation to all those who helped us at our 12th Annual Fall Craft Fair reach our goal to provide comfort bags to breast cancer patients in the LRGHealthcare Breast Health Program. Our goal was attained thanks to the many who attended, and the combined efforts of our Auxiliary members and volunteers, LRGHealthcare, several local businesses, many individuals and finally our generous vendors who not only participate but the many who donate items to our raffle.
We need to acknowledge the wonderful cooperation of the Laconia School Department and Laconia High School where we hosted our event.
We would like to thank the following businesses for assisting us with our event with either raffle donations, publicity or parking: Northeast Communications Corp.; Fred Caruso; Alan Harrison from WEZS; John Kimball; LRGHealthcare; Piche's Ski and Sport Outlet; Mark Dickson; Lakes Region Floral Studio; Roche Realty; Tilton Veterinary Hospital; The Taylor Community; Trustworthy Hardware; Kitchen Encounters; Kellerhaus; Patrick's Pub and Eatery; Cantin Chevrolet; Lakes Region Party and Gift; Interlakes Family Medical Practice; The Laconia Clinic; O.P.A; Meredith Bay Coffee House; Forestview Manor; Frank Roche Realty; AutoZone; Sacred Heart Church; AutoServ Tilton; Laconia Department of Public Works; and Pepi Herrmann Crystal.
Special acknowledgement is extended to the volunteers who stood out in the cold for hours to help direct parking.
In addition to vendor space rental charges, our craft raffle and bake sale helped us reach our financial goal. Many thanks to the dozens of people who offered to bake or made a donation in lieu of baking. Thanks again to the vendors, individuals and businesses that donated an item to our raffle.
Finally, our sincere thanks goes to the volunteers who worked long and hard on the day of the event and to the members of the planning committee.
Barbara Tuttle, Chairman
Fall Craft Fair Committee
