On the Scene
V.P. Warren Mitchell attended the busy Laconia Multicultural Market Day Saturday last. He observed two of the programs that our donation went towards: Kids on the Block puppet show and Animal Adventures.

Installation 2003
V.P. Warren Mitchell reports we have around 60 signed up for the Installation Dinner which will be held on Monday, September 29, at Pheasant Ridge Country Club. Division 6 Lt. Gov.-Elect Dan Witham will be in attendance for the ceremonies. The Boards has approved member reimbursement for the cost of the event if a guest joins the club. He suggests that not only should members plan on wearing their name tags but guests should be provided with same. Also, an effort should be made to have our members sit with guests. There will be no entertainment so it should be a short evening. This is also a good opportunity to bring in prospective members.

Food Shack
Key Club Chair Jim Fortier advises that the next Laconia High School Football home game is this Friday. Members interested in helping at the Food Shack should show up by 6p.

V.P. Warren Mitchell read a thank-you note from the Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation. They note that with our $2500 donation this year, our all-time total stands at $74,650.

He Was There
Senior Members Roger Webster and Bob Turner read an article from 2-3 years ago on Past Pres. Leo Sasseville's combat experiences.
