The Schroon Lake Area Chamber of Commerce has bestowed this honor John Welch, a much-valued member of the community.
Among his many achievements, John is probably best known for his tireless efforts at the Schroon North Hudson Snowmobile Club.
During the sled season John is at work while most of us are sleeping keeping our area trails in tip top shape. Off season he leads efforts to keep the trails clear along with a dedicated group of volunteers
Recently John was named Groomer of The Year at the 2019 NYSSA Conference and Educational Forum in Niagara, New York
And many locals and out-of-towners can attest that John’s day job, as the “J” at J and L Automotive, has saved their bacon by diagnosing car and truck troubles — and getting them them back on the road.
The Chamber is planning a reception to honor John, details to come.
