First Night® Saranac Lake 2013, December 31, 2012
WE COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOU!
The First Night® Saranac Lake Board of Directors would like to express our most sincere thanks to everyone involved in making our seventh New Year's Eve celebration a great success. Thank you to all the volunteers from our community who worked during the year and that evening. First Night would not happen without our very talented and professional performers; our sound technicians, who helped to create great sound for all the musicians; thanks to all the venues for opening up your doors to the community and supporting this event; thanks to our media sponsors, who went above and beyond to get the word out for us.
Thank you to all our contributors who support us in this endeavor. The revenue from our button sales covers only a portion of the budget for First Night, and the rest comes from generous donations. Thanks to everyone for purchasing your First Night button and for participating in the evening's fun.
As we move forward into our eighth year, we would like to invite interested people to become more involved in the planning of First Night®. Click on the contact section and let us know your thoughts.
Saranac Lake is a wonderful place to live. Our wish is that First Night Saranac Lake helped to usher in your new year with joy, community and hope. Happy New Year!
First Night® Saranac Lake Board Members: Sue Patterson, Connie Landon, Jane Carroll, Nancy LaBombard, Liz Bennett, Cheri Fisher, Linda Grant, Holly Huber, Judy Pareira and Laurie Campbell.
