Wright Museum’s Family Day inspires local business community

Featuring rides in WWII vehicles, live music, re-enactors, animal shows and more, Wright Museum’s Family Day is one of the highlights of the year for many in the local business community.

“Family Day brings the community together and many visitors who could potentially be our new next door neighbors,” said Lorie Hopkins of NFP Insurance, which sponsors the event. “Summer time with all activities and sunshine on the lake is the best medicine for the long winter we have endured.”

Kevin Lawlor, Edward Jones Financial Advisor who also sponsors the event, said he appreciates the role in town filled by Wright Museum.

“Wright Museum is both an educational institution and community gathering place,” he said. “I appreciate Family Day in its emphasis on fun, family and community.”

Generally attracting 400+ visitors, Family Day takes place on museum grounds and throughout Wolfeboro on Sunday July 14 from 11 am to 3 pm..

“It’s a fun way to spend part of your day here in Wolfeboro,” said Mike Culver, museum executive director. “There is so much to see and do in this town–boating, walking on the nearby rail trail, eating in great restaurants. It is a lot of fun.”

Catherine Drouin of Green Mountain Communications agrees and said the museum itself provides an incredible experience.

“The Wright Museum is a treasure for visitors to see,” she said.

Fellow Family Day sponsor Paul Doran of Doran Independent Insurance added, “How lucky are we as a community to have the Wright Museum in our town?”

For Culver, such community support is “incredible.”

“I really appreciate how the community rallies around us,” he said. “I hope that Wright Museum, in turn, can deliver great value back to the community.”

Family Day is sponsored by NFP Insurance, Kevin Lawlor – Edward Jones Financial Advisor, Green Mountain Communications, Doran Independent Insurance, Black’s Paper Store and Gift Shop, and Laconia Daily Sun.

Admission is $9 for members, $12 for adult non-members, $10 for children ages 5-17 and free for children 4 and younger. 

Parking at the museum is limited on Family Day to disabled persons.
