To The Daily Sun,
This year we celebrated the 95th year of the Leavitt Park Carnival in Lakeport. We were blessed with perfect weather for a fun day for all. The volunteers at Leavitt Park would like to take this opportunity to thank the many people and businesses who helped make this event such a success. We added some new games and invited “Stand Up Laconia” to join us with their booth.We also had T-shirts and bracelets to sell. Our raffle tickets were popular and we are so grateful to the businesses that so generously gave the items to be raffled off. The winners are as follows:
2 Tickets to Bank of NH Meadowbrook Pavilion ... up to $288 value ... won by Lee Gaudet
2 Tickets to New England 300 @ NHMS on 9-24-17... $190 value ... won by Kermit Merrill
2 Adventures at Gunstock ... $104 value ... won by Dwight Blake

$25 gift card to Our Place Family Restaurant ... won by Olivia Thibodeau

The 50-50 raffle for $27 was won by Megan Hoyt.
Other generous businesses include Vista Foods on South Main Street (they donated a $25 gift certificate to be used towards the purchase of hotdogs),
Lepage Bakery (help with hotdog rolls) and Our Place Restaurant (with a donation of chopped and grilled onions and green peppers).
A big thank you goes to the many non-members who came to help tend to the games and to our own volunteers that came to help.
We hope to see you in 2018.
