Who Makes Schroon Special For You?

We recently heard a startling anecdote – there are hundreds of folks who volunteer their time on multiple committees, projects and events. All that effort goes to helping making Schroon, North Hudson, Severance and Paradox Lake better places – for locals and visitors.

And it’s that time of the year, where it’s your chance to shine the spotlight on someone special – that deserve the honor of being named Schroon Lake’s 2014 Citizen/Organization of the Year.  Hurry – you only have until May 13th to get your letter of recommendation in. While you have to be a full time resident to nominated, anyone can suggest a candidate.

From Patrick Siler, the new executive Director of the Schroon Lake Area Chamber of Commerce.

“The Chamber of Commerce established the Citizen of the Year award in 1976 to honor an area resident or organization that has made a significant and sustained contribution to the quality of life in Schroon Lake. The Chamber of Commerce will honor this person or organization at its Annual Dinner in June.  Nominations for the 2014 award should include the accomplishments for which this person or organization should be honored. Please provide details of the achievements, volunteer endeavors, community service, efforts to improve the quality of life, and personal characteristics that you believe qualify the nominee as Citizen of the Year.
