On May 10, the Saranac Lake Volunteer Fire Department held its second annual golf tournament at the Saranac Inn Golf Club. One hundred eight golfers from all around the area came out to enjoy a beautiful spring day and to show their support for the fire department. Our fundraiser was a great success, and it was nice to see everyone who participated.
