A story in today's Laconia Daily Sun perhaps highlights why bringing in new businesses can be good for the economy and also good for the community.
Crucon, based on Rt. 25 in Moultonboro, wrote a check for $100,000 to the Lakes Region Boys and Girls Club which represented 20% of the clubs $500,000 fund raising goal.
Sandy Cleary, President of CruCon was quoted as saying "We must invest in our future, and the youth are the future of our community."
Based in Laconia, the Lakes Region Boys and Girls Club, enrolled 257 members grades 1 through 12 last year from Laconia, Gilford and Belmont.
A successful business that provides jobs and supports the community is a good thing. We need more businesses like Crucon to make Moultonboro their home, and we should applaud and support Crucon for being such good and very generous neighbors.
