Lake Placid Community Day Scheduled & Distinguished Volunteers of the Year Announced

29 May Lake Placid Community Day Scheduled & Distinguished Volunteers of the Year Announced

The sixth annual Lake Placid Community Day celebration will take place on Sunday, June 2, from 1-4 p.m. at the North Elba Horse Show Grounds. 

The free event features live entertainment, exhibits, activities and refreshments. Residents, seasonal homeowners, those who work in the town and those who volunteer their time and effort for various events are encouraged to attend.

The annual celebration features live music by locally based band Big Boss Sausage. Representatives from more than 30 not-for-profit organizations will be on-hand to share information about their work within the community. Food and beverages will be provided throughout the day by representatives from the Lake Placid Olympic and Paralympic Training Center.

Lake Placid Community Day celebrates all who contribute to various community-based initiatives, within the Village of Lake Placid and the Town of North Elba, that enhance the quality of life for community members and visitors. It is a day to celebrate all who contribute to the community’s success. 

One important tradition of Lake Placid Community Day is the announcement of the “distinguished volunteer of the year” awards, recognizing efforts of those who have made significant and important contributions to the community by giving their time and talent to activities and events in the area. 

Award recipients are recognized in two categories: distinguished volunteer of the year, youth and distinguished volunteer of the year, adult. The 2024 award recipients are JT Wint, youth and Debbie Erenstone, adult.

According to Organizing Committee Member Val Rogers, the event celebrates the community, and especially those who work within the community throughout the year. “This event really provides an opportunity to celebrate the place and the people,” she said. “We are able to come together and acknowledge the important role that not only our volunteers play, but the role we all play. We all work hard to make this a special place not only to visit, but also a special place to live and work. We continually open our arms and welcome the world. We rarely give ourselves a pat on the back. This is our pat on the back.”

Lake Placid Community Day is a joint initiative of the Lake Placid / North Elba Community Development Commission and the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism (ROOST). Visit the Lake Placid Community Day Celebration Facebook page or for additional information.
