Chair Warren Mitchell reports that the trip to Berlin, postponed from Tuesday last because of threatening weather, will leave NAPA Auto Parts at 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 17. Plan on a cookout and boce play.

V.P. Phil Bonafide (presiding) has Dan Fisher and John Grocki looking into putting together a golf tournament for August. This would be a good opportunity to publicize the club and possibly generate new members.

Chair Nancy Williams reports that membership is down regionally. We have not had a new member for a year. Members need to be constantly on the lookout. If we're not growing, we're shrinking.

Win a Classic!
V.P. Phil Bonafide is researching new dates for our raffle appearances. We should be good-to-go with our new bike in September or October.

Sgt.@Arms Roger Landry found Dennis Denoncourt, Dick Breton, Scott Beane, and Larry Murphy pinless.

Joe Adrignola/Chet Cilley, $16

Immediate Past Lt. Gov. Chet Cilley advises that he will be leaving the July Fourth Celebration committee. Past Pres. Jim Fortier will need new volunteers.

What Am I Bid?
Sec.'y Kathy Calvin says that we have been asked to provide an item for a silent auction to be held at The 83rd Annual District Convention in Hyannis, Mass. August 23-26. If anyone has an idea for a good Lakes Region-oriented item, let her know.

Guest Speaker
Steve Loughlin introduced new Laconia City Manager Eileen Cabanel to the club. A visitor to the area since she was a child, she assures everyone that she is always "willing to listen" to feedback on the state of the city. She cites our strengths of "diversity and potential" as paradoxically holding us back at times. According to Cabanel, an assured steady pace of development is far better than racing ahead, stopping, retreating, and then having to move ahead again in a new direction. She believes that it is also important that Laconia helps to develop a regional economy. To this end she recommends the hiring of an economic development director. She enumerated various city projects in the works and fielded questions from the membership.
