LACONIA, N.H. – “Celebrate Laconia,” a group of local citizen volunteers, will announce initial plans Feb. 7 to mark the 125th anniversary of Laconia in 2018 and discuss an ongoing mission to tout the city’s appeal.
The news will come Tuesday at a general meeting, from 6:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m., at the Laconia Fire Station, 848 North Main Street. The public is invited to meet the group’s board, led by President Pamela Clark, who also will unveil the “Celebrate Laconia” logo and branding and discuss ways residents can support the effort.
“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.”
The celebration, which will actually begin in August and go throughout 2018, will honor the industries, people, places and happenings that have made – and continue to make – 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.
If you’re interested in volunteering, please attend the meeting or contact Clark about membership opportunities at email@example.com.
