SARANAC?LAKE?- The Adirondack Lawn Chair Ladies was started in 1996 by Sue Patterson. Originally 12 in number, the group danced in unison, changing moves when their leader, Karen Smith, blew a whistle. Popularity of the LCLs grows with each passing year. The size of the group currently ranges between 30-36 ladies. Each year, the group gathers to choose new music, prepare new routines, and develop new costume and chair covers, all based on the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival theme.
