To the editor:

On behalf of the planning committee, we’d like to thank all who participated in the first kick-off event held June 13 for the North Country Out of the Darkness Walk.

A special thank-you to our generous donors as follows: Caffe Rustica, Simply Gourmet and Price Chopper from Lake Placid; Lakeview Deli from Saranac Lake; Rambach’s Bakery & Fudge, Mickey’s Restaurant and Price Chopper from Plattsburgh; and Pepsi-Cola Bottling Company in Keeseville. Also thank you to the village of Lake Placid for use of the beach house for this event.

The North Country Out of the Darkness walk will be held on Sunday, Oct. 5 at the Lake Placid oval. Summer is the perfect time to connect with family and friends to ask them to support you as an individual walker or team.
