Good debut for golf tourney

To the editor:

On May 11, 2013 the Saranac Lake Volunteer Fire Department held its first annual golf tournament at the Saranac Inn Golf Club. One hundred twenty-four golfers from all around the area came out and braved early rain showers to compete in a four-person scramble and to show their support for the fire department. Our first attempt at this annual event proved to be a huge success, and the Saranac Lake Volunteer Fire Department would like to thank all the participants, along with the following individuals and businesses that made this a successful fundraiser:

Our hole sponsors: Fisher, Bessette, Muldowney and Hunter LLC, Adirondack Landscaping, Fortune-Keough Funeral Home, Saranac Lake Volunteer Rescue Squad, Hulbert Supply, High Peaks Distribution, Saranac Lake Moose Lodge No. 457, Bloomingdale Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary, Romano’s Saranac Lanes, Burnham Benefit Advisors, Law Offices of Brian P. Barrett, Church Street Enterprises, Spencer Boatworks, Captain Cook’s Bar and Grill, Martin’s Excavation, Community Bank, Edward Jones Investments, Smokey’s BBQ 9-1-1 and Tri-Lake Fire Safety.

Special thanks to Saranac Inn Golf Club, High Peaks Ford,, Upstate Vinyl Graphics, Jim Cochran, Gauthier’s Saranac Lake Inn and all the other businesses that donated to our event.
