Welcome Aboard, Jane
Membership Chair Joe Adrignola introduced our newest member to the club: Jane Thibault. A lifelong Laconia native, Jane has been Marketing Director at the Taylor Community for 11 years. She and husband Ronald have one child. Now that she has some extra time, she decided to join a service club--and we're all pleased that she picked our motley crew.
