SARANAC LAKE - First Night Saranac Lake has introduced its button for this year, created by Janet Simkins on behalf of the Women's Civic Chamber.
"Lake of the Clustered Stars," Simkins' button art for the village's seventh annual New Year's Eve celebration, made its first appearance on a banner she made and unveiled for First Night Saranac Lake in December 2009, on behalf of the Women's Civic Chamber.
First Night invites community organizations to create banners for each year's New Year's Eve celebration. Each year a button design is selected from one of the contributing organizations' designs from previous years.
The all-volunteer First Night board's mission is to bring the community together in a family-oriented, alcohol-free celebration of the arts to welcome in the New Year. Consult the website firstnightsaranaclake.org for more information.
