Ice Palace builders look for help

SARANAC LAKE – The volunteers who build the Winter Carnival Ice Palace every year jokingly refer to themselves in union terms as the IPW (Ice Palace Workers) 101. This union is not a closed shop, and this winter it’s looking for new members well before it’s time to cut ice.

They invite anyone who’s interested in helping, but maybe never knew how to get involved, to join them at a question-and-answer social gathering from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at Captain Cook’s Bar & Grill, 65 Broadway.
