Saranac Lake volunteers 2020

To the editor:

It’s difficult, at times, to look past the social media hype and national headlines to discover stories that are a testament to the character of our community and neighbors. We want to recognize a particular hard working group of local makers and crafters that jumped into action the moment the pandemic hit, making thousands of face masks for their neighbors and area businesses. We thank them for their volunteerism, and for their commitment to our community, and recognize them as our 2020 Volunteers of the Year!

Congratulations to our Volunteers of the Year!
