LAKE PLACID The Lake Placid Center for the Arts invites all interested community members to a general volunteer meeting for the 22 annual Joy to the Children Benefit. The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 28 at 6 p.m. in the LPCA Fine Arts Gallery. Joy XXII is slated for Thursday, Dec. 4 at 6 p.m., and will again be hosted by the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa. This annual benefit will be co-chaired by Erin Perkins and Sharon Wood. Volunteers are needed for several committees, and community members wishing to help out are encouraged to attend this fun organizational meeting. The first meeting of interested volunteers is vital as we begin coordinating for this ambitious fundraiser. Volunteers will enjoy meeting new friends while helping to raise much-needed funds to support a multitude of arts programs for children in the region. Refreshments will be served. Lisa and Ed Weibrecht and the staff of The Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa will host this special event for the 22nd consecutive year. As in past years, their gracious donation of the Inn makes this long-standing holiday tradition one of the outstanding events of the season. The Inn, decorated for the holidays and overflowing with goodies, will delight guests as they revel in the evenings festivities while raising money for childrens arts programming. This annual benefit raises funds to help support over 100 free childrens workshops and some 100 individual programs reaching over 34,000 individuals throughout our region. Funds from the benefit help to support several local programs.
