Thanks for help with Lake Placid Village Clean Up

Lake Placid News

To the editor:

The 53rd annual Village Clean Up held Saturday, May 9 was a success on many fronts.

With enthusiastic communitywide participation from both residents young and old and the many Lake Placid business teams who came out, we were able to clean every area. The annual VCU serves as a reminder and an opportunity for residents to be vigilant and to act as good stewards of our community every day of the year. If you see some trash, please pick it up.

Thanks to all participants for your efforts, you helped make our village look respectable again.
