To the editor:
We would like to publicly acknowledge the contribution of the following businesses to the Triangle Garden opposite the Horse Show grounds on state Route 73 in Lake Placid.
The Brown Dog Deli & Wine Bar, The Cottage, Jimmy’s 21, Lake Placid Pub & Brewery, Whiteface Club & Resort and ZigZags all eagerly underwrote an hour work session by inviting us back after to their respective establishments for complimentary hors d’oeuvres and discounted beverages.
The prospect of a social hour after our toil boosted the number of volunteers. With an average of 10 people for each of six sessions, we were able to accomplish our goals of planting and weeding in only one session per month. The hours working as a group total 60 for the season!
An attractive, colorful Triangle Garden could thus greet visitors and residents alike upon entry to Lake Placid.
In addition, we had a wonderful time!
We also owe a debt of gratitude for the fine press coverage and cooperation of your newspaper. We needed you to spread the word.
Thank you sponsors, press and faithful volunteers.
Triangle Garden chairman,
Garden Club of Lake Placid
