To the editor:
On Nov. 18, the Shipman Youth Center opened its doors to celebrate the first annual First Responders Appreciation Day dinner. More than 100 people including Lake Placid Police Department, the Lake Placid Volunteer Fire Department nd Lake Placid Volunteer Ambulance attended the event.
The Shipman Youth Center staff, board members, children and numerous supporters worked very hard to make this special occasion a success. Mayor Craig Randall read a proclamation declaring November 18th, 2010 as the First Responders Appreciation Day in the Village of Lake Placid. In his speech the mayor emphasized how that Village of Lake Placid and Town of North Elba benefit greatly from the dedication, time and commitment of its First Responders.
On behalf of the Shipman Youth Center, we also would like to recognize supporters of this event: McDonalds of Lake Placid, Mirror Lake Inn, High Peaks Resort, Olympic Training Center, Milano North, Centerplate, Desperados, Adirondack Steak and Seafood, NBT Bank, Courtyard Marriott and Price Chopper. Their support made the event possible.
See you next year.
