Barbecue chicken dinners will be offered Saturday in uptown Lake Placid to help raise money for an extravagant Fourth of July fireworks show over Lake June-In-Winter. The barbecue will be hosted by the Lake Placid Jaycees, which has presented fireworks in Lake Placid for more than four decades.

“It is with humbling respect and patriotic spirit that we, the Lake Placid Jaycees, organize the 4th of July fireworks celebration every year,” said spokesman Donald Clarke. This year, as in past years, the Jaycees have worked various projects to raise money for the fireworks display.
