To the editor:
I want to extend my thanks to the Saranac Lake Teachers' Association for sponsoring a wonderful adventure in Saranac Lake last week. The combined efforts of the association, Trudeau Institute, North Country Community College, St. Joseph's and the village of Saranac Lake made Shop, Drop and Eat a great way to get Christmas shopping done while enjoying the company of friends and co-workers. The downtown was sparkling, and the stores welcomed all with treats and good cheer.
There was a friendly competition for food pantry donations at Blue Moon Cafe. All the boxes were filled to overflowing, but the high school won bragging rights!
And to make it even more fun, there were wonderful prizes to be won through raffle tickets provided with each purchase. I was the lucky winner of round-trip airline tickets from Lake Clear to Boston, donated by the village of Saranac Lake.
I'm sure lots of folks already are looking forward to next year's event. I know I am!
