To the editor:
We are understandably proud of our community and the way we present ourselves to our visitors.
Peter Kroha and his entire staff always do an amazing job with all seasonal decorations. Christmas and winter decorations are spectacular and it is always sad when they are removed. Is it that time already? Many merchants and property owners added red, white and blue colors to celebrate the Vancouver Olympic Games and the 30th anniversary of the 1980 Games.
We all appreciate the difficult jobs that are done by our village and town crews. Brad Hathaway, Larry Straight and Scott Monroe’s staff should all be thanked every time we see them. The community not only looks good, but is safe because of these dedicated people.
Lake Placid Beautification did an outstanding job decorating our entire community with greens and the swags made by the Garden Club. They recently removed swags, bows and meter pots as they began their spring cleanup.
Butch Martin’s crew did a remarkable job placing almost 200 trees around the community. They also provided all the greens used to make the swags and fill many barrels, window boxes and other containers throughout the community. The trees were provided by The Lake Placid Beautification Associaton.
Dennis Ryan, Joe Lamb, and their numerous volunteers put on celebrations that filled our hearts with pride. Over 500 children and adults enjoyed the special events on the Olympic Oval and at the Olympic Flame re-lighting. Congratulations and thank you!
With spring fast approaching, it is time to plan the various activities we can do to help clean up and spruce up our community. We can remove our wreaths, bows, colored lights and other holiday decorations. Greens that remain can be trimmed for any dead (brown) sections.
Spring cleanup encompasses so many things ...not only our roads and streets, but also painting, planting, and general cleanup of our own properties.
Please plan on joining us for the annual Garden Club Town/Village Cleanup event on Saturday, April 24th. The rain date will be Saturday, May 1st. Read the Lake Placid News for more information.
We all contribute to the appearance of our community. We invite you to join us at our next meeting at 8:30 p.m., April 14 on the third floor of the town hall. We need your input.
