					    Lang McLaughry Spera Selects Good Beginnings as “Charity of the Year”

West Lebanon, NH – May 20, 2010 – With Mother’s Day just behind us and Father’s
Day around the corner, it’s a great time to be thinking about supporting families with
new babies. Lang McLaughry Spera Real Estate (LMSRE) agents — many parents
themselves — can relate to the work of Good Beginnings of the Upper Valley, and have
selected this 24-year-old nonprofit as “Charity of the Year.”

Corporate giving and volunteerism are important elements of the company culture for
Lang McLaughry Spera. “Each year, associates elect one local charity who will receive
a portion of the commissions earned for each real estate transaction performed by Lang
McLaughry Spera Real Estate. The donations are presented in the name of the clients
and customers who purchased or sold property within that year,” says Chris Flaherty,
marketing director. A percentage of real estate sales in the six Upper Valley LMSRE
offices — Grantham, Hanover, West Lebanon, Norwich, Woodstock and Fairlee — will
be donated to Good Beginnings every quarter in 2010.

“We at LMSRE have charity nominations each year, and the associates develop a
discussion of what charities they feel are important in the Upper Valley. Several gave a
compelling background of the importance of Good Beginnings and their work with new
parents in the first few months after the birth of a child,” says Bruce "Buff" McLaughry,
COO of Lang McLaughry Spera Real Estate. “This is a small organization that has great
volunteers, a dedicated staff, and a wonderful track record of helping when the need
arises. We are very proud to help Good Beginnings in any way possible.”

“Good Beginnings of the Upper Valley is honored to have been selected as the Charity
of the Year by LMSRE. It was a pleasant surprise and truly a great match,” says Denise
Dame, executive director of Good Beginnings. “Lang McLaughry Spera has offices
throughout the territory that we service. Last year Good Beginnings reached 236
families throughout the Upper Valley and — with LMSRE’s generous support — we
hope to reach even more families with new babies this year.”

Good Beginnings has been serving families with new babies throughout the Upper
Valley for 24 years. Any family with a new baby (or babies) is eligible for services
through Good Beginnings. If you have a new baby or one on the way — or you’d like to
volunteer — go to

Good Beginnings of the Upper Valley is a free, home-visitor program that relies on
