Rene and Tony Callahan were the winners of the Saranac Lake Women’s Civic Chamber raffle basket. The basket includes chocolate, champagne, and gift certificates supporting local businesses, all donated by the organization's members, and valued at more than $150. Over 60 years ago, the Saranac Lake Women's Civic Chamber was formed by a handful of community-spirited women with the ambition of assisting the village Chamber of Commerce. Guided by a mission of civic improvement and youth welfare, members donate many hours to community service throughout the year. Proceeds from this and other fundraisers are given back to the community in the form of mini-grants to various local organizations.
