To The Daily Sun,
The Committee for the Laconia High School Alumni Reunion would like to express its gratitude to Laconia School Department administration, staff and, most importantly, the alumni who gave so wholeheartedly to ensure that the fourth annual Alumni Reunion was a success.
Specifically, we thank the Laconia School Board whose endorsement was so important, LHS Facilities Manager Steve Dalzell, Jack Aldrich and his students of the Meredith Village Savings Bank Culinary Arts Center, Jennifer Mitchell and Jeff Twombly – IT Department and the LHS janitorial staff for their support during the day and night of the event. Special thanks to Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation for setting up a great raffle and raising extra funds for the alumni scholarship that two LHS seniors receive each year.
We would also like to especially thank Krista Marrs from The Citizen, who was the driving force in making our third alumni publication a reality. We hope to build on this in the years to come to make it a wonderful keepsake of the event.
We thank the generations of alumni who came to Laconia High School to renew friendships, to exchange memories, especially the Class of 1954, and to show that we still remain Sachems in the most respected sense of unity for the blessings of our public education. Special thanks to Warren Mitchell, who organized the amazing parade of classic cars that seems to grow each year for our alumni to ride in. Gert Gilman, Class of 1933, was our senior alumni and we were thrilled to have her join us again this year in the celebration. We look forward to her attending next year when she will celebrate her 100th birthday. We think that alumni who attended had a great time reconnecting.
On behalf of the alumni, we thank our parents for their insight in supporting us when in school, thank our teachers who challenged us, taught us, and set out dreams and goals to be sought. We know full well that those buildings at 345 Union Avenue have long brought forth a group of citizens who, for some, gave the ultimate commitment so that public education would be available for generations to come, brought forth citizens who made a difference in their nation, their states, their communities, and in the neighbors, in their families, and, yes, in their school systems.
As an alumni committee, grateful and committed to public education, we thank you and hope that next year we can meet again.
