Continued commitment to Children's Foundation is much appreciated

To The Daily Sun,

The Children's Foundation of the St. Vincent de Paul Society, would like to thank everyone who helped make this year's annual Project Pencil a great success. By working closely with the school nurses, guidance counselors and resource coordinators, the Children's Foundation was able to provide assistance to 600 children. Backpacks filled with various school supplies, along with personal hygiene items, lice shampoo, underwear, socks and diapers were delivered to the local schools, preschools, and child care centers in the Lakes Region.

A special "thank you" goes out to Ed Pierce at The Citizen for the great article and publicity he provided, to the John and Cheryl Barton and the Lakes Region Corvette Club for their donations, the 31 Party "Give back Diva's, Mel and her crew at Walmart, Empire Beauty School, and all the anonymous donors. To all the volunteers who helped stuff the backpacks and bag them up for delivery to the local schools, and to Bert, Mary, and their grandson for delivering these backpacks and supplies to the local schools. "I couldn't have done it without you."

The continued commitment to the Children's Foundation and generosity from individuals and businesses in our community, to helping "children in need" is truly appreciated.

Thank you for your support.

To The Daily Sun,

My name is Elinor Thorsell. Many of you have passed through my classroom at Memorial Middle School. I have lived in Laconia for more than 40 years and have gotten to know Tom Dawson through his son (a friend of my son) and his Stanley Steamer.

I was pleased to learn that Tom Dawson has decided bring to his extensive knowledge of community service as New Hampshire Fire Marshall to a new challenge as Laconia's representative to the House of Representatives at the Statehouse.

Tom is committed to listen to every piece of legislation, discussions and debates brought before the House of Representatives. He will weigh each idea or proposal with the people of Laconia in mind — all of us, not just one segment.

Tom will respond to issues with a wise and strong voice, keeping in mind our needs here at home in Laconia Most importantly, he will listen to Laconia's citizens regarding these issues.

I sincerely feel Tom Dawson has the ability to help us move forward as a community.

Tom Dawson has my vote.

Elinor Thorsell
