LACONIA, N.H. – “Celebrate Laconia,” a group of local citizens, will announce initial plans March 16 to mark the 125th anniversary of Laconia in 2018 and discuss an ongoing mission to tout the city’s appeal.
The news will come next week at a general meeting, from 6:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m., at Woodside at the Taylor Community, 435 Union Ave. The public is invited to meet the group’s board, led by President Pamela Clark, and see the “Celebrate Laconia” logo and branding.
“We’re excited about our goals for this more than year-long celebration of our community,” Clark said. “We’re eager to involve the community in planning this prolonged party for the ages.”
At the meeting, which was postponed from February because of snow, Clark will talk about ways residents can support the celebration honoring the industries, people, places and events that have made Laconia a special place.
Clark also will discuss plans to kick off the celebration early with an event in August marking this year’s Laconia Passenger Train Station’s 125th anniversary. The celebration will continue throughout 2018, the 125th anniversary of Laconia’s incorporation.
If you’re interested in volunteering, please attend the meeting or contact Clark about membership opportunities at firstname.lastname@example.org.
