LAKE PLACID - In this week's Lake Placid News, volunteers have been out in full force spring cleaning the community.

In a story we call "Greening Lake Placid," we report on the village's annual Clean Up Day, tree plantings by the Lake Placid/North Elba Tree Board and an upcoming Green Market on the Olympic Speedskating Oval, hosted by high school students on Saturday, May 25.

American Legion posts in Lake Placid and Keene have planned their Memorial Day services, which include a parade Monday on Main Street, Lake Placid. And the annual Carry the Load event will be held around Mirror Lake on Sunday.
