The big Tom Turkey from Hartzell’s Market in Lake Placid showed up at the “Turkey Trot” dance Saturday night. He had his place at the Saturday Farmers Market, then back to the base of operation, and then Saturday at the Lake Placid Ballroom Dancers dance, and then back for the Thanksgiving display at the store.
We’re collecting new PJ’s for the kids in Lake Placid at the Town Hall. We need the bigger sizes now up to 11 years of age, or donate cash and Bonnie will buy the PJ’s for you. Manna Ministries will be in charge of getting these out to the kids in Lake Placid.
The Placid Lakes Social Circle will have its Christmas meeting and party on Thursday, Dec. 5 at the Placid Lakes Country Club, starting at 4 p.m. Itineraries and ID pins will be given out for the Dec. 9 Christmas Light Cruise, and for those who can’t make the meeting they will be given the day of the trip. Please bring a “his” and “hers” gift valued under $10.
