Joseph Cerutti Scholarship Awarded 
Congratulations Josh Chilvers!

LRBRA awarded $1,000 worth of quality tools to Josh Chilvers as this year's recipient of the "Cerutti Golden Hammer award." Josh is a graduate of Gilford High and also completed Year 1 & 2 in the building construction program at the Huot Tech Center. He was able to gain hands on experience building small homes at the school and learned many skills. Josh is now a full time employee with Lighthouse Contracting Group. Josh can start building his "Tool Box" by purchasing quality tools at Middleton Lumber, Meredith as part of this award.

In 2018, the Josepeh Cerutti Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by his family.  Joe was an active member of LRBRA and, in 1994, was named the Lakes Region Home Builder of the year. Because of his long affiliation with the building industry and his love of learning, this fund has been set up to award a student who has completed or continues to successfully pursue their degree programs and plan on pursuing a career in the trades industry. 

Update to PPP Loan Program Gives Businesses More Flexibility

A new law relaxes rules regarding loan forgiveness and repayment for companies getting aid during the pandemic.  The bill is mostly very good in that it gives businesses a lot more flexibility and clarity on how they can spend the funds. But the IRS has determined that expenses paid with the tax-exempt funds are nondeductible, which effectively makes the PPP funds taxable for most businesses.
