Lake Sunapee VNA was pleased to honor Annette Vogel, owner and publisher of the InterTown Record, with a special award at its Better Together summer party on August 2nd. The award was presented to Vogel by Gail Matthews, a long-time friend and supporter of Lake Sunapee VNA and founder of the agency’s Women Who Make A Difference Luncheon…the event where this award would normally be presented. “Though the pandemic has prevented the luncheon from being held in recent years, the summer party was the perfect time and place to honor Annette, especially because 2022 marks the 30th anniversary of the InterTown Record,” says Cathy Raymond, Development Officer.
