Don't Show Up Next Monday
Pres. Don Nelson announced, because of Memorial Day, that our next regular meeting will be on Tuesday next.

Win a Classic!
V.P. Phil Bonafide has the slots filled for the next roadshow Saturday, May 26 on the Weirs Boardwalk. Setup: Dick Breton, Phil Bonafide; 10a-2p: Joe Adrignola, Howard Bacon, Bob Turner, Ed Chertok; 2p-6p: Larry Murphy, John Grocki, Roger Webster; Don Nelson will pick up the bike. Sunday, May 27 will be the raindate. Last year we raised almost $1000. The Motorcycle Week schedule for the boardwalk from Saturday, June 9 through Sunday, June 17 is available for sign-up at any time--first come, first served. Be sure to set aside some time on your calendar as this will be our last big push before the drawing. Tickets and or monies should be turned in by next week to ensure that all stubs make it into the new, larger drum Jim Fortier is having fabricated.

Nancy Parrot found Roger Webster pinless; Don Nelson forgot to mention Peter Karagianis in the introductions; and Dennis Denoncourt tardy.

Happy Dollars
Steve Loughlin came up with a dollar for his son's graduation party going off with no liability issues; Howard Bacon for his grandson graduating cum laude from DePaul University; and Don Nelson for the 50/50 count's completion.

Amanda Simpson, $26 (she wanted to donate it to the club but was dissuaded.)

Guest Speaker
Past Pres. Joe Adrignola introduced Laconia City Planner Amanda Simpson to the club. She has been on the job for over six years since leaving Wolfeboro Town Planning. She is involved with the River Walk project that was conceived in 1996 as an effort "to reconnect the city." Laconia has always had to deal with the mixed blessings of interior waterways. These features promoted the growth of the area but necessitated many bridgings across them. While the Key Club had developed a walkway from Church St. to behind the municipal parking lot in the 70's, ultimately the River Walk would extend from the Weirs Bridge to Winnisquam. This is a large project that will need to be done in steps. The goals are to celebrate the river, present the areas history with walking tours, and provide recreational opportunities for visitors. The History Walk through the Belknap Mill will kick off at the end of June.
