Celebration of life for Barbara Hunter to be held today

It is with heartfelt sadness that I have joined a group to plan a celebration of life for Barbara Hunter, who passed on June 2. Barbara leaves a legacy of true dedication and vast contributions to our community that spans many decades in the Lakes Region and her hometown of New Durham. The planning group from Belknap County, New Durham and UNH Cooperative Extension offices includes myself and Judy Buswell, Sandy McGonagle, Alida Millham, Gil Schohan, Tammy Emery, Sue Cagle, Charlene Baxter, Judy Bush, Cathy Allyn, Dot Martin Veisel and Donna Swett.

The celebration will be held today at 4 p.m. at the Historic Belknap Mill on Beacon Street in Laconia. Anyone attending can bring a nonperishable food item to be donated to a local food pantry. We are also contributing to a memory book, “Recipes for a Life Well-Lived,” by writing our favorite memory of Barbara on 3-by-5 cards. For those who cannot attend and/or wish to honor Barbara, the Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation has set up a scholarship in Barbara’s name. Donations can be sent to LRSF at P.O. Box 7312, Gilford, N.H. 03247.

Any questions can be addressed to Judy Buswell at 524-6580 or email
