To The Daily Sun,
Laconia High School has two great organizations that have offered to assist in a renovation project that will result in new health and wellness facilities at LHS. These rooms will be utilized by not only the students and faculty but also be accessible to members of our community as well.
This project entails moving the existing weight room and relocating it into a revamped strength training room and aerobic/cardio room. The aerobic/cardio room will support programs such as yoga, Zumba and cardiovascular equipment as well. Our goal is to offer state of the art health/wellness opportunities for our students and the community so we can be a healthier Laconia.
Laconia Youth Football is sponsoring one of these fundraising campaigns. This is a raffle involving two packages which include a pair of tickets to the New England Patriots vs. Buffalo Bills on Dec. 28 at 1 p.m. at Gillette Stadium. These packages also include a night stay on 12/27 at the Courtyard Inn in Norwood, Mass., which is less than 10 miles from the stadium. The first-place prize also includes a $100 gift certificate to Splitsville Luxury Lanes, the newest restaurant located at Patriots Place. The third place prize is a $50 gift certificate to The Local Eatery in Laconia. All proceeds from this raffle go back into the renovation for the studio.
The other event we have is the first annual Turkey Bowl taking place at the Bank of New Hampshire Stadium behind Laconia High school on Nov. 28 and 29. This is being sponsored by Lakes Region Flag Football and will be a two-day flag football tournament. This will be a great event to bring Thanksgiving football to the Lakes Region. Proceeds from this event will go toward purchasing equipment for the health/wellness studio at Laconia High School.
To sign up for the Turkey Bowl you must be over 18 years old and have a team of six to 12 members. Registration can be done at www.lrffl.com and click on register
