To the editor:
The students of Saranac Lake High School want to thank the communities of Saranac Lake, Lake Placid, Tupper Lake and beyond for helping to make this year's VIP After Prom Celebration a huge success. More than 150 students were able to stay up until 4 a.m. having a great time!
We would not have been able to provide a safe, substance-free event at our school without the help and donations from our generous area businesses and community members. The donated food and prizes were very appreciated by students, from sunglasses to ski passes to pizzas and so very much in between.
We want to thank the following businesses and chaperones, and encourage everyone to support these businesses with their patronage: Ace Hardware, Adirondack for Kids, Adirondack Bank, Adirondack Lakes & Trails Outfitters, Adirondack Trading Company, Advance Auto, ALL Land Surveying, Amerigas, Ampersand Bay Resort, Ampersound, Aubuchon, Bear Essentials, Bloomingdale/Gabriels Knights of Columbus, Blue Line Sports, Blue Moon Cafe, Bob White, BOCES, Books and Baskets, BPO Elks Lodge No. 1508, Carcuzzi, Catholic Daughters, CED Twinstate Electric, Cherrie Sayles Real Estate, Church Street Enterprises, Community Bank, Community Store, Compass Printing, Cunningham's, Curtis Lumber, D & S Parker family, Dorsey Street/Main Street Exchange, DownHill Grill, Dr. Ferrando, Dr. McSweeney, Dunkin' Donuts, Eat 'n' Meet Grill, Edward Jones, Evergreen Auto, Eye Peek, Fireside Restaurant, Fortune-Keough Funeral Home, Fusion Market, Goody Goody's, Gordon Pratt, Hannaford, High Peaks Cyclery, High Peaks Dental, HomEnergy, Howard Johnson's, Hulbert's Tri-Lake Supply, Hyde Fuel, Janie's for Hair, K&E Enterprises, Kinney Drugs, Knit2Together, Lakeview Deli, Little Italy, Louis Vuolo, Major Plowshares, McDonald's, McKenzie's, Mountain Medical, NBT Bank, NC Originals, New York State Police Troop B, Nonna Fina, ORDA, Owl's Nest, Packbasket Diner, Palace Theatre, Pink, Pizza Hut, Play it Again Sports, Post Office Pharmacy, Precision Cuts, Price Chopper, Romano's, St. Regis Canoe Outfitters, Sam's Club, Saranac Inn Golf Club, Saranac Lake Discount Liquors, Saranac Lake Golf Club, Saranac Lake Knights of Columbus, Saranac Lake Fish and Games Club, Saranac Lake Women's Civic Chamber, SLHS Friday Faculty Fund, SLHS Gift Fund, Sharper Image, Steve Borst, Stewart's Shops, Student Athletic Association, Sturdy Supply, Sylvia's Tailoring, Taylor Rental, T.F.
