The Happy Tails Dog Park of the Lakes Region is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization founded in 2008 by a group of private citizens who wish to create an off- leash dog park in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. The group does not receive any taxpayer funds from any NH municipality and is not associated as a division of, nor a sister organization to any other Lakes Region animal related organization.

GILFORD — The Lakes Region Singers will present a new program on Friday evening, May 15, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, May 17, at 3 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church on Route 11A in Gilford.
The concerts are open to the public and will include performances by both the Youth Chorus and the Adult Chorus. A suggested donation of $8 per person or $15 per family of four will be taken at the door to help cover expenses.
The Adult Chorus will treat listeners to some rousing swing tunes such as "It Don't Mean a Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing," "Blue Skies," "All the Things You Are," and "Choo Choo Ch'Boogie." They will also offer medleys from familiar Broadway musicals like West Side Story and Ragtime.
The Youth Chorus will feature "Let It Go" from the movie Frozen, "Bein' Green" from The Muppet Show, and a dancechoreographed version of "Surfin' USA."
The program will close with both choruses performing an inspiring arrangement of the Rodgers & Hammerstein favorites "You'll Never Walk Alone" and "Climb Every Mountain."
Instrumental soloists Rich Landry on drums and Cody Reynolds on bass will add to the vitality of several swing pieces, and Alison Witham will lend her talents once again on the flute. The chorale will be accompanied by the piano expertise of Kelly Cleveland of Belmont.
Directed by Karen Jordan of Laconia, the Lakes Region Singers have been entertaining this area with spring and winter concerts since 1992. The chorale consists of nearly 40 dedicated singers from Laconia, Gilford, Gilmanton, and Belmont.
