To the Editor
As the cold weather is coming upon us the Santa Fund of the Greater Lakes Region is getting ready for our annual outerwear distribution.
The Santa Fund of the Greater Lakes Region operates year round to help children and families. Last year we provided warm clothes, coats, boots and snow pants during the winter months to over 600 children. We will be distributing coats, boots, hats and mittens for children 16 and under living in the home. Snow pants and boots will be available for pre-k and elementary students only. WALK-IN APPLICATIONS ARE BEING TAKEN ON 10/17, 10/18, 10/26, AND 10/27 FROM 4 TO 7PM at our office at 280 Main Street in Laconia.
In addition, as recipients of funds from the Children's Auction of the Lakes Region, we feel that it is important to support Patrick's Pub Pub Mania, an event that raises so much money for the auction in our community. The Santa Fund of the Greater Lakes Region is partnering with Real Life Training and The Downtown Gym to form "Real Downtown Santas" — a Pub Mania team for the 2016 Pub Mania event.
We would like to thank our community sponsors for their donations for our team. They are Foley Oil, Insurance Outlet, Melcher and Prescott, GC Engineering, Lacasse Builders, Bootleggers, Pike Industries, Jennifer's Color Bar and Sanel Auto Parts. We would also like to thank the members of the Downtown Gym and friends who have been showing up each week to "shuffle" at Patrick's Pub to support us as well. It's for the kids!
Stay tuned for an exciting event to benefit our team as well. You're gonna love this family friendly event!
