To the Times of Ti:
The Schroon Lake Opening Weekend Volunteer Committee would like to thank everyone for making the first opening weekend a huge success!
The event was officially sponsored by the Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce, but many businesses, musicians and volunteers participated to make the event run smoothly.
Special thanks to the volunteer committee, including Sharon Piper, Pete Johnson, Julie Sawyer, Jane Smith and Laura Donaldson. Special guests at the Summer Expo included Wendy Hall from Adirondack Wildlife Refuge and Rehab, IScream Rock Climbing Wall, NY State Troopers and many more.
Musicians for the Tribute to the Troops concert did a wonderful job performing all day, including Curtis Becraft, The AdirondacKatz featuring Mark Piper and Chris Conte, The Gregson Brothers and, last but certainly not least, The Stephen L. Smith Band.
And a sincere thanks to the members of local churches who performed the Blessing of the Boats, including Fr. Sturtz from Our Lady of Lourdes, Pastor Ben Bahr from SonRise Lutheran Church and Sr. Pastor David Peterson from Mountainside Bible Chapel.
Many, many thanks to everyone and we look forward to hosting this event again next year!
Shelby Davis, event chairwoman
