Moultonboro Toastmasters Club issues challenge for Tuesday, Oct. 27

To The Daily Sun,

Moultonboro Toastmasters Club claims their meetings are educational yet laced with fun. We challenge you to attend our Open House meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 27 and then tell us if our claim is justified or not. I have been a member of the Moultonboro Toastmasters
Club for four years We naturally help each other with our speaking and leadership challenges — through our trained evaluator and directly. We each smile when we see and hear our fellow members improve as we really care about their progress. The annual Humor Contest Competition, with other Toastmasters Clubs, is special and I think the original humor is top notch.

Our regular meetings and the Open House meeting are held at the Moultonborough Library (4 Holland Street) on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month from 6:30 pm to 8:30 p.m. We arrive at the meeting at 6 p.m. for preparation and conversation. My telephone number is 603-476-5625 if you have questions.

You're lucky to have such a qualified candidate for Police Commission

To The Daily Sun,

We are writing to endorse the candidacy of Tom Tarr for the Laconia Police Commission.

We have known Tom, his wife Sandy and their family for nearly 30 years. We know of no other candidate who would be as qualified for the Laconia Police Commission, given his long and exemplary career in New Hampshire criminal justice, which has spanned some 40 years.

Since 1992, until his retirement in 2014, Tom has served as Chief U.S. Probation Officer for the District of New Hampshire, managing and directing all federal probation and pre-trial service activities in the state. From 1985 through 1992, he held the position of director of the New Hampshire Probation/Parole Division, with responsibility for managing and directing New Hampshire's statewide adult probation/parole system.

While his experience speaks for itself, we also know that, if elected, he will perform the duties of Police Commissioner with honesty, fairness and integrity, hallmarks that he exhibited throughout his career and traits that he embodies as an individual.

Voters of Laconia would be hard-pressed to find a more qualified candidate for the Laconia Police Commission.

We urge you to vote for Tom on Nov. 3.

Don & Denise Labrie
