LACONIA — As part of an annual tradition, the Laconia-Gilford Lions Club donated food baskets to disadvantaged families during the holiday season. Among the recipients were residents of Belknap House. Recently, Belknap House expressed thanks to the Lions by publicly posting a message on their sign.

Comments made by shelter residents (identification withheld to insure confidentiality) included:

"We greatly appreciated it as it made our holidays that much better and magical for my family."

"Thank you for helping my family for a good Christmas."

"Thanks so much."

Belknap House Executive Director Paula Ferenc added, "We want to express our utmost gratitude, and 'thank you' from the bottom of our hearts for making Christmas for all of us worth remembering."

"This organization's work has never been more important,” added Lions Club President Matt Soza." We will help any way we can and encourage others to do the same."
