Firefighters will be raising money for Operation Warm on Nov. 17

To The Daily Sun,

On Tuesday, Nov. 17, from 5 to 9 p.m. the Laconia Professional Firefighters will be hosting a fundraising event at the Holy Grail of the Lakes restaurant located at 12 Veterans Square.

This fundraising event will benefit Operation Warm, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that puts warm American-made winter jackets on children right here in our own community.

During this event, your local firefighters will be tending the bar throughout the night. Twenty percent of your total bill will be donated to Operation Warm to help us with our fundraising goals. There will also be doing a 50/50 raffle (need to be present to win), as well as raffling off several items from various local businesses, including Gunstock Mountain Resort, The Common Man, DeCarli Woodworks, MC Cycle, Heaven Scent Design, A Balanced Body, and other local companies.

So please come join us on Nov. 17 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Holy Grail of the Lakes and help us put warm coats on children in our community that may not have a winter jacket.

If you are unable to attend this evening event you can also make donations online at www.operationwarm.org/laconia1153 or checks can be written out to Laconia Professional Firefighters and in the memo line write "Operation Warm." Checks can be mailed to: Laconia Professional Firefighters, PO Box 1153, Laconia NH 03246.

Meredith & Community Thrift Store will be closing for good

To The Daily Sun,

On Nov. 28, the Meredith & Community Thrift Store will be permanently closing the shop. This was not an easy decision to make and we are sincerely grateful to have had the support of the community in making our mission possible.

We are thankful for all of you who shopped, donated goods and selflessly gave their time to keep our busy shop humming along for 10 years. Many friendships were made here, and many good people came just to visit and share their lives over clothes racks and coffee. We will surely miss those days.

I especially want to thank our volunteers and all board members past and present for being the backbone of the thrift shop's success. Later in the year we will publicly post where our final gifts will be distributed. Please stop in and say goodbye, it has been a pleasure serving you.

Lisa Stevenson, Manager

Meredith & Community Thrift Store
