Big help for Big Top Carnival

To the editor:

FRIENDS hosted our annual Big Top Spring Carnival at the Lake Placid Elementary School on Saturday, May 31. It was a great success! The proceeds from the event will be used to support field trips, supplies and activities throughout the school year for LPES students.

We’d like to thank the following businesses who donated to the balloon pop raffle: ADKid, Adirondack Popcorn, the Palace Theatre, Emma’s Lake Placid Creamery, Bowl Winkles, Boots & Birdies and the Adirondack Carousel in Saranac Lake. We’d also like to thank The Wild Center for donating a gift basket to the Exhibit Hall raffle. The following businesses were so generous in donating lunches and tasty treats: Gordon Pratt Agency, Mr. Mike’s, Price Chopper and the Palace Theatre. Finally, we’d like to thank all of the amazing LPES families, Northwood students and local friends who volunteered their time from setup to take-down. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Thanks again for supporting this great event. We look forward to seeing you at the Big Top in May 2015!
