To The Daily Sun,
After vacationing in Meredith for more than 50 years, we moved here permanently several years ago. The town has changed in many ways over those years, but our love for it has not. It is important to us that Meredith continues to be the great vacation destination and place to live that it is.
Bev Lapham is the man to guide our town into the future. He, too, loves Meredith. This can be seen in the way he has participated as first a business owner and now as a volunteer.
Bev moved to Meredith in 1988. He bought Village Canvas which is now run by his son. Prior to that he had a successful career in banking.
As a volunteer Bev is a member of Rotary, recently having served as president. He is a Trustee and the Treasurer of the Union Church of Meredith Neck. Additionally, he is a Board member of the Greater Meredith Program. Through this organization he has been involved in creating the lakeside walkway that connects Scenic and Hesky Parks, the Courtyard on Main Street and the Community Center garden. Currently he is chairman of the Meredith Sculpture Walk Committee, a town asset that has garnered recognition from far and wide.
All this involvement has given Bev the opportunity to interact with residents, business owners and town employees. As a selectman he will continue to move Meredith forward while maintaining what makes our town so great.
We urge you to vote for him for Meredith Selectman on Tuesday, March 10.
Rick & Lissa Goodby
