Joe Adrignola also reports that LRGH would like to be involved and form a full safety day event, including checks of car seats in vehicles.

Spaceshot Update
Regrettably, it was one step forward and three steps back for Roger Ballantyne this week. Prior to starting the next phase of his treatment, a new tumor was discovered in his brain. Surgery on the brain is scheduled this week. Our thoughts and prayers are with Roger and Betty always.

Speak Up!
Roger Landry informs the club that the next available date for a guest speaker is April 23rd. He also reminds the club that we will be meeting at One Mill Plaza on March 26th for a program on memory...so don't forget!

Happy Dollars:
Dianne Zawacki gave for the Teen Center becoming officially "The Boys and Girls Club of the Lakes Region." She informed the club of their grand opening event coming on June 30th. Dick Metz gave a dollar because he invited his mother in law to Florida. For some reason, he stressed that was NOT a happy dollar. In all, $2 was collected.

Warren Mitchell was pinless and fined $500.
25 cents was collected.

Guest Speaker:


Todd Fraser gave the crew a tour of Laconia's historic Belknap Mill. Built in the 1800s, the Mill has been renovated through the years and now houses a gift shop, a museum, a conference room, and even the Mayor's office. Enjoy some of the pictures from the tour.




Todd Frasier welcomed us with open arms.
