Letter To The Editor
On September 13, 2013 my husband and I had the privilege of
attending 161st Police Academy’s graduation in Concord at the
One of the honors at every graduating class is bestowed upon a class
member who has served in the military before attending and
graduating from the Academy. This candidate must show outstanding
character and leadership during their training at the Academy and is
chosen for a special award, the Charron-Legion Award.
Jeremy Charron was a marine who went on to become an Epsom police
officer. He was killed in the line duty while serving his community.
He was a hero, as are all of our men and women who serve and
This graduation was special to me. As Concord’s American Legion
Post 122 presented the Charron-Legion award, alongside the parents
of Jeremy Charron, it was my privilege to take the photos of the
recipient, Nashua Police Officer Julia Banks. Officer Banks is a
Marine veteran who served her country with honor and now continues
to serve our State. It was a proud moment for me to see the first
female officer receive this award.
I want to say thank you to all of our veterans, no matter what age,
no matter where they served, whether man or woman. We have the
bravest military in the world! Thank you Officer Banks and to the
entire 161st graduating class of the New Hampshire Police Academy.
You make us proud every day. Stay safe and God speed.

Laconia Adult Education Wealth Workshop Series
Laconia Adult Education is offering a FREE Wealth Workshop Series
that will run for three (3) weeks beginning on Wednesday, October 2,
2013. The Workshop will run from 6:30 – 8:30pm. You will begin to
understand and learn how to put your money to work for you and make
There are many ways that you can learn about investing. This
includes putting money into stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real
estate, or starting your own business. These are referred to as
“investment vehicles”, which is just another way of saying “a way to
invest”. It doesn’t matter which method you choose for investing
your money. The goal is always to put your money to work so that it
earns you an additional profit or income.
Investing is not gambling. As an investor, you do a thorough
analysis or investigation before committing any money in order to
make sure that there is a reasonable expectation of financial gain.
Investing is a way to increase your sense of personal freedom, sense
of security and ability to afford the things in life that you want
now and in retirement.
The Wealth Workshop will cover such topics as Investing 101: Ideas
and Strategies; Retirement Planning 101: Get Ready and Plan Now!;
Wealth Planning 101: What Every Smart Women Needs To Know!; and
Portfolio Management: Maximizing Gains and Reducing Risks!. The
rewards for taking personal control of your finances will far
outweigh the efforts that you put in. Contrary to popular belief,
you don’t have to let banks, bosses or investment professionals
invest your money in directions that you don’t understand. You are
the person to know what is best for you and your money.
This Wealth Workshop Series will help you understand what investing
is all about, what it means and how time earns money through
compounding. It will also teach you about the building blocks of the
investing world and the markets, give you insights into techniques
and strategies and help you to think about which investing
strategies suit you best. So, do yourself a lifelong favor and call
