Thanks to the many who turned out for the Mill's Summer Soiree

To The Daily Sun,

The Belknap Mill Society thanks the many supporters who turned out for the first annual Summer Soiree on July 10. With entertainment by Rob Thomas, hors d'oeuvres by Christine Richer Catering and more than 25 silent auction items generously donated by local businesses, the Soiree was a big hit.

The night would not have been possible without our many volunteers who donated their time as well as all of our guests who supported our mission on the beautiful summer's eve. We hope everyone had as great a time as we did; and if so, come back for the second annual Summer Soiree in 2016.

Meanwhile, consider joining us for our free summer concerts in Rotary Park on July 16, Aug. 13 and Sept. 17 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Thank you again to our volunteers, donors and guests. The show of community support reinforces our passion for the Mill - this place matters.

Belknap Mill Society Board of Directors

& Managing Director Beth San Soucie

Rockin' Daddios will headline benefit for Multcultural Festival

To The Daily Sun,

A fundraiser to support the Laconia Multicultural Festival is planned for Saturday, Aug. 1, at Pitman's Freight room. Headlining the evening will be the Rockin' Daddios, who were recently named Best of N.H. for their "classic Doo Wop, soaring harmonies and goofy romantic attitudes of those street-corner crooners from another age."

Well known radio personality, Pat Kelly, will be hosting the festivities.

Surprise guests, games like "Beat the Clock," a penny candy buffet and a roll back to the '50s will make this a night to remember while raising much needed funding for our Sept. 12 Festival. We invite the community to pull out your poodle skirts — slick back your hair (or come as you are), and sing-a-long or dance the night away! Tickets are available at Greenlaw's or through the LMF website at laconiamulticulturalfestival.org.

The Laconia Multicultural Festival committee has been firming up details on this year's festival, including the addition of another entertainment stage in the City Hall parking lot. As the event grows, so do the expenses! Donations are always greatly appreciated and can be mailed to LMF, PO Box 1052, Laconia, NH 03247.

Tickets for the '50s FUN Fundraiser are limited, so don't wait. If you would like to reserve a table (8 or more), please let us know. And feel free to follow us on Facebook for festival details.

Laconia Multicultural Festival Director
