U.S. Senate Republican candidate Scott Brown and his wife, Gail Huff, stopped in at the resort on their way to an evening cruise on Lake Winnipesaukee to meet Hope and Cynthia and present them with "Women for Brown Hero Awards" to recognize their persistence in keeping their business strong in a challenging environment.
The "Women for Brown Hero Awards" are intended to single out women who are making contributions to the economy of New Hampshire, helping the community thrive and to build strong families in challenging times.
He praised Cynthia for her devotion to charitable causes such as the Land and Lake Poker Run and other charity motorcycle rides to support Easter Seals.
"Naswa Resorts opened in 1935 and the Makris Family has done an extraordinary job growing the business and contributing to New Hampshire's tourism industry," Brown said.
"It is unfair that Washington regulations are forcing Cynthia to make tough choices, and it is time for new leadership to reduce the size of government and to encourage entrepreneurial success for New Hampshire," Brown said.
Brown said he is keenly aware of what the Makris Family faces in trying to keep their business viable.
