Mahew Report:
Larry Murphy reported on his volunteer trip to the Mayhew Program last Saturday. Despite the miserable rain in Laconia, it was a nice day out on the island. Volunteers included: Larry and Rosemary Murphy, Carroll and Sandy Stafford, 3 kids from the Boys and Girls Club and 2 individuals from the Franklin Rotary. Larry notes that we have been invited to something by the Franklin Rotary on July 17th…more details at a later date.

Business After Hours:
Joe Adrignola announced that there is a Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours on
Wednesday June 9th from 5 to 7 pm at Laconia Bike Works across from McDonalds on Union Ave. Bill Contardo has been very generous to the club so we hope that Kiwanis Members can show up and support his Business After Hours. Senior Member Paul Cotton points out that Motorcycle inspections at Laconia Bike Works are much less expensive than most places around.
