To our greater Laconia Community from the members of the Green Sanctuary Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Society of Laconia and volunteers from the Laconia-Gilford Lions Club: A huge “thank you" for coming by this past Saturday with all of your recyclable plastics! Some 360 pounds of recyclable plastics were collected, kept out of our environment and soon will be on their way to being repurposed. This truly is a reason to celebrate our Earth. May we continue to safeguard our Planet! And until we have another drive, please use the soft plastics recycling bins found in local grocery stores to keep these items out of the trash. We appreciate your help!
