To the editor:
Literacy Volunteers of Essex/Franklin Counties hosted a craft beer tasting event on June 2 at Heaven Hill Farm in Lake Placid. This event was very successful, and all who attended enjoyed the evening immensely. All proceeds will be used to support Literacy Volunteers' adult literacy programs in Essex and Franklin counties. Not only did it include beverages, but it also consisted of trivia questions, raffle items and beautiful music played by Ashley Sophia.
We would like to thank the following breweries for participating in this event: Davidson Brothers, Legends, Lake Placid Pub and Brewery, Matt Brewing Company (Saranac beers and soft drinks), Great Adirondack Brewing Company and the Craft Beer Exchange. This event would not have been so successful without Mark Jessie, who organized brewers and brews.
A big thanks to the following businesses and individuals who donated items for our raffle: Adirondack Explorer, Rebecca BanHoesen, Erin Boyle, Jim Bullard, Dancing Bears, Community Store in Saranac Lake, Country Florist & Gifts, Bob Harsh, Hott House, Seth Lang Photography, Legends, Lake Placid Pub and Brewery, Liquids and Solids, Kathy Merritt, Marie Orlando, Suzanne Orlando, Saratoga Performing Arts Center and Robert Schiller.
We would also like to recognize and thank the following restaurants that donated food: Arena Bar & Grill, Hannaford, Desperado's, the Mirror Lake Inn and the Lake Placid Palace Theatre.
