Thoughts for Jim:
Joe Adrignola gave an update on Jim Fortier, who we learned is in the ICU at Concord Hospital. Arlene Fortier said that Jim had an allergic reaction to something, and at this point they don’t know what, and swelled up. He’s on a breathing machine and can’t have visitors right now. More to follow, as the information becomes available. Please keep Jim in your thoughts. Because of Jim’s illness, Chet Cilley could use some extra support during the 4th of July Celebration that he and Jim run together. If you are able to help out, please let Chet know and thanks in advance for doing so.

Hey Kiwanis…THANKS!
We received a thank you note from Mary Cass, a scholarship recipient. Mary said that the scholarship will be very helpful as she pays for college next year.

Charlie St. Clair Bike Week Update:

Charlie St. Clair gave a brief update on Bike Week. He said that despite thinking the numbers were down from last year, he has received reports that have indicated the numbers were actually up this year, slightly over last year. He said that the state showed that more people stayed to the north and east of the Lakes Region. Bikers stayed in the Mt. Washington Valley at hotels that were cheaper priced than Laconia hotels. He said that the banner day was Wednesday, when the weather was warm and sunny. State numbers show that the attractions really jammed up when the weather was good, which showed that the bikers were here. Unfortunately for most of the week, the weather, especially the rain, was a problem.

Charlie gave a tip of the cap to the Laconia Police Department for adjusting their staff to the conditions and saving the city some money in the budget.
