2 large trucks full of electronic waste collected on April 23

To The Daily Sun,

The Laconia-Gilford Lions Club Electronic Waste Collection Day on April 23 was a great success and the club is grateful to all those who brought items and participated in it. Thanks to you, we filled up two large trucks with recyclable electronic items.

Special thanks to Lowe's in Gilford for allowing us to use their parking lot for this fundraiser.

The money that the Lions raised will allow the club to meet pressing needs in our community including eye exams, eye glasses, eye screening in the schools, hearing aids, scholarships to graduating seniors, Lakes Region Community Services, Community Health & Hospice, and assistance to food pantries among other local charities. The club greatly appreciates all of your support and looks forward to seeing you on October 15 for our fall electronic waste fundraiser.

Marylin Brown, President

200+ guests supported the Hands Across the Table Soupathon

To The Daily Sun,

The recent Hands Across the Table Soupathon was a tremendous success. We would like to thank the 200-plus guests who took the time to attend.

Special thanks to our wonderful cooks and bakers and to The Laconia Daily Sun, Citizen and WEMJ for the great publicity. Sincere appreciation to members of the advisory board of the Immigration Integration Initiative, who joined us this year with soups representing their heritage.

We all agreed that Friday night was a good choice for the event and plan to have our sixth Soupathon next year on a Friday night, with lots more soup.
Consider joining us for a free hot meal any Wednesday night at the St. Andre Bessette Parish Hall on Gilford Avenue, Laconia. Doors open at 4 p.m. Dinner starts at 5 p.m. There's always room for more.
