New Horizons will be starting our Christmas concert series in December; look for announcements

To The Daily Sun,

In this season of Thanksgiving, the New Horizon Musical Organization of the Lakes Region would like to take this opportunity to express its deep and sincere appreciation to all those businesses and patrons that support us through our playbill and concerts. It is because of your generosity that assists us in keeping music alive for many people. There is nothing more inspiring and gratifying than to attend a live concert and see many people you know still engaged in music.

The New Horizon Musical Organization is an international organization and three exist in New Hampshire. The organization’s philosophy allows individuals to dig out their old instruments or learn a new one performing to the best of their ability. “Making Music for Life” is our motto. If you have not attended one of our concerts, we will be starting our Christmas series in December and ending January 5 in Meredith. Look for our concert announcements in the newspaper and join us for some Christmas spirit.

Cindy Ossola, President

Hector’s owners again supported Salvation Army’s Turkey Plunge

To The Daily Sun,

Recently, Carla and Carl Peterson, owners of Hector’s Restaurant in downtown Laconia, generously donated a percentage of all lunch and dinner purchases to our local Salvation Army Turkey Plunge. This marks the second year in a row that the Petersons have offered this support. We are very grateful for this outreach by a local business giving back to the community. It was truly a “win-win” situation as diners received a delicious meal in one of the area’s finest venues while the Salvation Army received much needed cash for its programming in support of our neighbors in need.

I urge readers to visit Hector’s for lunch or dinner and, when you do, thank the Petersons for their civic-mindedness. On behalf of our Turkey Plunge Committee, the Salvation Army and the countless neighbors who will benefit from this gift, a most sincere thank you Carla and Carl!

Pam Clark
