In the spirit of summer, Gov. Chris Sununu and New Hampshire's Executive Councilor had a little fun at Wednesday’s regular meeting, starting the morning with a boat ride and ending it with arcade games.
Before heading to the day’s meeting in Laconia, all five of the councilors, including Sununu, strapped on life vests and took a cruise around Lake Winnipesaukee.
Sununu even got to take the boat for a spin.
“Of course I got to drive the boat – that was a lot of fun. I shouldn’t say of course – I was pretty skeptical," he said. "I said no for a little bit and then they insisted. It handles well – it’s great.”
After returning the vests and exiting the docks, it was off to Funspot for the official meeting.
Funspot offers hundreds of arcade games, bowling, miniature golf and a tavern - where the meeting itself took place. And it kicked off as usual with the pledge of allegiance and an opening prayer.
The Councilors then got right down to business – that is at the tavern’s pool table, each sitting next to a large mug of candy.
Every summer councilors take their meetings on the road to get into the community. The next stop will be Hampton Beach.
