16th Annual Fall Craft Fair met goal set by LRGH Auxiliary. Thanks!

To The Daily Sun,

On behalf of The Lakes Region General Hospital Auxiliary I would like to extend our appreciation to all those who contributed to the success of our 15th Anniversary Fall Craft Fair held at Laconia High School. Once again we were able to raise the necessary amount to continue to provide comfort bags to breast cancer patients in the LRGHealthcare Breast Health Program.

Our goal was attained thanks to the many customers who attended, and the combined efforts of Auxiliary members,
LRGHealthcare, several local businesses, many friends of the Auxiliary, and finally our generous vendors who not only pay a fee to participate but the many that also donate items to our raffle.

We need to acknowledge the wonderful cooperation, and support of the Laconia School Department and Laconia High School staff who assisted us with our preparations.

We would like to thank the following businesses for assisting us with either a raffle donation, advertising, publicity or parking: Northeast Communications Corp., Jeff Levitan, Fred Caruso, Pat Kelly, Binnie Media NH, LRGHealthcare Public Relations and Marketing, Gator Signs, Piche's Ski and Sport Outlet, Kitchen Cravings, Gilford Well, Mark Dickson, Airport Deli and Country Store, Lakes Region Floral Studio, Cormier's Sugar House, Roche Realty, Caldwell Realty, BYSE Agency, The Home Beautiful, The Taylor Community, Trustworthy Hardware, Kitchen Encounters, Proctor's Lakehouse Cottages, Patrick's Pub and Eatery, Cantin Chevrolet, Interlakes Family Medical Practice, The Laconia Clinic, Advanced Orthopedic Specialists, North Country Deli, Wayfarer, Joanne Parsons, Manager, AutoZone, Sacred Heart Church, AutoServ Tilton, Laconia Department of Public Works, Sawyer's Dairy Bar, Meredith Village Savings Bank, The Studio, Trellis Management
Co., Prescott Florist, Hair Excitement, Osborn's Agway, The Canvas Guys, La Sasha, Madeira USA, North End Deli & Petro Mart, New Hampshire Pewter, All My Life Jewelers, Lee's Candy Kitchen, and Pepi Herrmann Crystal.

Special acknowledgement is extended to the volunteers who stood out in the cold for hours to help direct parking. We also need to offer our sincere appreciation to Armand Bolduc and Bob Hamel for their assistance with set-up and clean-up.

Besides the money raised from vendor rental fees, proceeds from the craft raffle and bake sale helped us reach our financial goal. Many thanks to the dozens of people who offered to bake or made a donation in lieu of baking. Thanks again to the vendors, individuals and businesses that donated an item to our raffle.

Also, our heartfelt thanks is extended to the friends of the Auxiliary who handmade many adorable items to donate to our raffle table.

Finally, we wish to thank the volunteers who worked long and hard on the day of the event.

To The Daily Sun,

Once again, Homestead and Fratello's restaurants will proudly honor our veterans with a complimentary prime rib dinner to celebrate Veteran's Day!

On Monday, November 14 from 4 p.m. until close, all veterans will be treated to a complimentary prime rib dinner consisting of a 12 oz. cut of prime rib, potato and vegetable.

I will be at the Homestead Restaurant in Bristol. I will buy the first 25 veterans a beverage of their choice. God bless the USA.
