To The Daily Sun,
As a permanent resident of Laconia I would also like to comment on what I saw on my early morning walk coming from Tower Avenue along Lakeside Avenue on the Fourth of July. First I saw an updated boulevard, flowers dangling from lamp posts, with no electric wires hanging about, and bright new sidewalks. And for that I want to salute our city officials who work hard in both maintaining and updating this PUBLIC area.
Next, as opposed to this temporary resident, I was not surprised to see the glorious site of families from all over, taking advantage of Weirs Beach again — one of the signature summer spots not only in the Lakes Region but in all of N.H. I, as opposed to others, take it as the highest compliment, that for years individuals from ALL over and from ALL cultures would come here to celebrate a unique day in the history of our great country. And finally, as far as coming too early, eating homemade food and sandwiches, sitting on a crowded beach, etc., — hey, that's part of the special experience of 'going to the beach' on Independence Day.
Here's to a continued great summer in Laconia!
