To the editor:

On May 13, the Saranac Lake Volunteer Fire Department held its fifth annual Golf Tournament fundraiser at the Saranac Inn Golf Club. One hundred twenty golfers from all around the area came out to enjoy a beautiful spring day and to show their support for the fire department. Our fundraiser was a great success, and it was nice to see everyone who participated. Team Wheeler took first place, shooting minus-12 and consisted of Chip Wheeler, Rob Mullarney, Rob Kane and Keegan Vize. The Saranac Lake Volunteer Fire Department would like to thank all the participants, along with the following individuals and businesses that made this a successful fundraiser:

Our hole sponsors were Fisher, Bessette, Muldowney and McArdle LLP; Adirondack Landscaping; Fourtune-Keough Funeral Home; Saranac Lake Moose Lodge No. 457; Bloomingdale Fire Department Auxiliary; Romano’s Saranac Lanes; Spencer Boatworks; Hyde Fuel; Belleville & Associates; Say Real Estate; Say Rentals; Edward Jones Investments; Jim Cochran; Casa Del Sol; High Peaks Distributing; Carcuzzi Car Care Center; Teddy’s Ice Cream; NBT Bank; and High Peaks Ford.
