BC bOp was a great recipe for community success

To the Daily Sun,
If you attended the BC bOp concert at The Winnipesauke Playhouse in Meredith on Saturday, you know the theater was rocking. The Boston College jazz ensemble of 22 musicians and seven vocalists entertained the packed house with something for every age group, from Bruno Mars to Glenn Miller. It was toe-tapping, fun entertainment, punctuated by delicious — a perfect way to spend a November evening.

The ensemble was sponsored by Temple B'nai Israel, and the proceeds will benefit Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice. Because of the temple's generous commitment to community through the We Care program, this fun evening will help Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice bring care to a growing number of fragile children.

We think this is a great recipe for community success: take a generous group of committed people, add high quality entertainment and yield support for non-profit work. We at Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice offer our sincere thanks to everyone who participated in this fun evening — Temple B'nai Israel, the Winnipesauke Theater, BC bOp and the energetic audience. Everyone who participated left the theater feeling good about the music and the commitment.

Honored to have been a part of an event that will help so many

To The Daily Sun,

It is with humble gratitude that I am writing to thank so many people who supported me in representing The Santa Fund of the Greater Lakes Region at the sixth annual Dancing with the Stars.

What an amazing experience to compete and raise money with some of the community's most dedicated volunteers. I would first like to thank Laura Brusseau and her partner Ashley Halsey for organizing this huge event! A big congratulations to all of the dancers, who I can truly say deserve so much applause for getting out there, being brave and dancing in front of over 400 people. Thank you to my partner, Katie Laroche of Dancing Feet Studios for her time, energy, and patience. There have been so many people — friends, family, businesses who have supported me in this endeavor and I am beyond grateful for their kindness and generosity, and belief in this cause.

I would also like to give a special thank you to the incredible people in our downtown neighborhood for supporting me in this event: John Moriarty, MC Cycle, Daub's Cobbler Shop, All My Life Jewelers, Ian Raymond Photography, Grace Capital Church, Wayfarer Coffee Roasters, Greenlaw's Music, Patrick Wood.

There are no words to express my appreciation. I am honored to have been a part of an event that will help so many people in need. All donations big and small were so greatly appreciated by me and the gracious volunteers of the Santa Fund Board.

In a world full of so much sadness and tragedy, I am comforted knowing that we are doing what we can to make our tiny corner of it better for so many. "No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted." — Aesop

With gratitude on behalf of myself, my loving family, my extended Santa Fund Family, and the children of the Lakes Region.
