To the Times of Ti:
The Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce, which sponsored the New Year’s celebration in Schroon Lake, would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the volunteers and organizations who helped make it possible.
Despite the abundance of snow this year, Town Supervisor Mike Marnell and the parks department did a great job of preparing the site for the bonfire and the fireworks launching area. Jim and Stacey Kowalka along with Mark Piper set the dramatic mood by placing over 100 luminaries on the site and Shawn Baker from the Word of Life kept everyone warm with his hot chocolate service before the fireworks. It was cold duty, but done with a smile! Superintendent (Bonnie) Finnerty and the volunteers from the school provided food and crafts for all and the Adirondack Shakespeare company kept everyone in stitches with their variety show. For those with happy feet, the DJ from Party Productions Inc. kept everyone hopping in the gymnasium.
A special thanks to our ticket sellers, cleaning crew, local business supporters and all who attended the final event of 2012. We are already looking forward to next year!
Tony Kostecki and Sharon Piper
