Volunteer spirit soars

To the editor:

The Town of Long Lake would like to thank all the volunteers that helped out this 2009 summer season in Long Lake and Raquette Lake.

Thank you to the Red Hats and Flower Beautification Committee that planted in the barrels around Long Lake and a thank you to the Long Lake Town Board and CAP-21 and the volunteers who helped hang and maintain the hanging flower baskets in Raquette Lake.

Also a huge thank you to all those individuals who helped keep the Long Lake Teen Center at Mt. Sabattis thriving three nights a week during the summer season. Thanks to: Jud Graham, Anita and Jim Brundage, Joe San Antonio from Hamilton County Trailblazers, Steve Signell, Julia Pierce, Molly Irvine, Kelly Brown, Victoria Sandiford, Theresa Taylor, Ceci Bush, Kate Parent, Emily Farr, Kristen Lance and Shane Holmes.

Also thank you to The Cellar, The Long Lake Ladies Kazoo Band, Eunice and Walter Hartmann, Jacquie and Mike Rivette, Mike and Nancy Hosley, Ruth Howe and the Eastern Star and the participants in Long Lake’s Road Rally for their contributions. The generous donations offset the costs of food, snacks and equipment needed to get the Teen Center off the ground.

The teens enjoyed recreational basketball games, tennis, volleyball, foosball, badminton, Pictionary and charades. The kids also made jewelry, learned about geo-caching and had a safe place to go. We look forward to continuing the Teen Center next season.

We appreciate the vibrancy and community spirit of Raquette Lake and Long Lake and are so pleased to have had a successful summer. We certainly look forward to keeping that volunteer spirit alive in the upcoming winter months!

We couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you for your help.

Alexandra V. Roalsvig, director

Long Lake Parks, Recreation & Tourism Dept.
