Lake Placid Community Day is coming up on Sunday, Sept. 12, rain or shine! I encourage you to mark your calendars and come join us. This old-fashioned country fair style day is FREE for the Lake Placid community and will include free food and drink, live music, kids’ games, the pavilion of nonprofits and organizations, and the Distinguished Volunteer of the Year Award. If you live, work, or volunteer in the community, you are invited.

We still have room for more if your nonprofit or organization wants to have a presence. If you would like to sign up or for more information, please contact us at lakeplacidcommunityday@gmail.com.

Volunteers are so important to our community, our economy and our way of life. The pandemic has faced us with unprecedented challenges over this past year but it has also shown us the true strength of our community. We look forward to celebrating this community.

We will be following all recommended local, state and CDC guidelines. We encourage masks for everyone. If unvaccinated, a mask is required.

See you safely from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 12 at the horse show grounds!

Sincerely,

Valerie Abraham-Rogers
