20 extra boxes of food at the CAP Pantry thanks to scouts.

To The Daily Sun,

The staff of the Common Pantry located at Community Action Laconia Area Center would like to thank our local Boy Scouts and all of the volunteers who made it possible for us to receive 20 boxes of donated food for our food pantry.

Their generous time and efforts will make it possible for community members who visit our food pantry to a little extra this winter. We sincerely appreciate the generous donation.

The forum is an opportunity to ask questions of LMWA board members and learn more about plans for the 2017 rally. This open forum will be moderated by Binnie Media's Pat Kelly, and provides an opportunity for discussion about plans, concerns and suggestions for the 2017 Laconia Motorcycle Week. LMWA Executive Director Charlie St. Clair, Deputy Director Jennifer Anderson, board President Cynthia Makris of the Naswa Resort, and Laconia Mayor Ed Engler will participate in the panel discussion. Local and state law enforcement and public safety officials will also be available to answer questions.
