To The Daily Sun,
I can't tell you how delighted I was to read your letter in The Laconia Daily Sun today. Information we have provided to the press in seeking attention and support has had to be mostly factual and informative. Your letter had personal warmth and experience of heritage in your hometown. Your background shows a love for culture and architectural design. I am so pleased with your attachment to Laconia.
Now you are living in a community that has been totally restored as the very important knitting industry and is a famed historical site to make trips to visit. My Uncle Lowell of our Lowell family worked in the Lowell Mills. He lived in Methuen and I lived with them for a year. Fond memories of that area too.
We will not approve the demolition even though we have not power to stop it. We will conduct a public hearing Wednesday, January 22 at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, Laconia. We may go for an injunction. And we will continue to picket Dunkin' Donuts (by Hathaway House) on Union Avenue each weekend.
