To the editor:

Thank you, as always, to the state Olympic Regional Development Authority's Denny Allen and Jay Harvey for donating the ice and assistance with coordination of staff for the Skate into the New Year event on Dec. 31. Leading up the event, I received gracious help from our sponsors.

We appreciate Compass Printing Plus for the complimentary poster printing.

Thank you to Chrissy Crosby of Starbucks for facilitation of the hot chocolate donation, and we appreciate the assistance of the baristas who made the hot chocolate as well.

Donations of food and party supplies are essential for the event's success. Thank you to Wendy Rascoe (manager, Price Chopper) for facilitating a gift card for purchase of party supplies. Thank you to Mark Fitz (receiver, Price Chopper) and Keith Shambo (Freihofer) for the donation of cups, napkins and cookies/snack foods for the event. Price Chopper has donated for all nine Skate into the New Year events, and I appreciate their continued support.

For the past several years, since they have been in Lake Placid, Hannaford Supermarket has also donated goodies. Thank you to Crystal Tatro (Hannaford) for organizing the donation and providing us with so many baked goods.

This year, we had a new sponsor, Next Organics/Next by Nature, whose facility is located in Plattsburgh. They contacted us to offer almost 300 packages of natural chocolate-covered fruit snacks, and we were proud to hand out the product to our visitors and now, to donate the remainder to the food pantry. Thank you Elizabeth LaRosa for the donation and coordinating pickup of the items.

Thank you to the Lake Placid CVB/Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism, WSLP and the Lake Placid News for promoting the event and spreading the word. I appreciate your annual support!

As always, a big thank you to the Kiwanis Club of Lake Placid for supporting the event for so many years.

We appreciate all our sponsors and support staff from years past and present; your support allows us to continue the Skate into the New Year, and for that we are eternally grateful.
