Funds raised for veteran support

The We Care Committee of Laconia’s Temple B’nai Israel has, for the second year in a row, chosen our Gilford-based nonprofit Veterans support group, Camp Resilience, as the beneficiary of the We Care Spring Concert ticket sales. The concert, featuring two great Doo Wop groups playing all the oldies from the 1950s and early ’60s, was a near sell-out. The audience was entertained by the musical stylings of The Belairs and Lee Lewis and the Doo Wop All-Stars. Both groups had the appreciative audience tapping their toes and singing along with the tunes. This concert, organized by the We Care Committee, and in conjunction with a pre- concert tee shirt challenge fundraiser, generated a whopping $20,000 to support veterans attending Camp Resilience. Major sponsors for the event were Meredith Village Savings Bank and Miracle Farms Landscape Company. On behalf of all the wounded warriors who will benefit from attending a Camp Resilience retreat thanks to the generosity and hard work of the We Care Committee under the leadership of its chairman, Stu Needleman, the Camp Resilience Board of Directors extends heartfelt thanks to the sponsors, all those who bought tickets or participated in the tee shirt challenge and, most especially, our good friends of the Temple’s We Care Committee. We salute and thank you all.
