Community Pride Day thanks

To the editor:

The town of Long Lake would like to thank all the volunteers who came out for Community Pride Day on Wednesday, May 5 in Raquette Lake and Long Lake. Despite the weather, both towns turned out in nearly record numbers and collected a very impressive amount of rubbish from local, county and state roads. In Raquette Lake, the find of the day went to a wallet found on Route 28, and they even located the owner! In Long Lake, the prize for best item recovered goes to Mike and Yevette for finding an Adirondack chair on Kickerville road.

Thank you to all the local businesses for helping support this event, particularly the Long View Lodge for providing coffee and pastries, and the Raquette Lake Tap Room and Long Lake Diner for supplying lunch to the volunteers.
