Lake George group sponsors window painting

LAKE GEORGE Snowmen seemed to be the major theme of the day, whether riding sleds or wearing a cheerleading uniform, but whatever they were painting, they all seemed to be having some fun. It was the annual window painting event, sponsored by the Lake George Community Comes Together (LGCCT) group, comprised of parents, students and community members who work to find healthy alternatives for kids to keep them from trouble. LGCCT members Robin and Bert Weber organized the containers of paint into boxes for the participating painters. We put together about 30 boxes for about 75 people, Bert said. The event is growing each year, and Jan Loonan, also a LGCCT member, said that local merchants were donating and participating more. The Knights of Columbus has hot chocolate and donuts for the kids, and Pizzeria Mangia has dollar slices today, Loonan said. Knitted gloves were donated for all the painters by Dave Hersh at the Alternative Silvermine. Some of the painters had a plan before they arrived, others just started painting, coming up with ideas as they went along. Were painting a snowman dressed like a cheerleader, said. Melissa Page of the Lake George varsity cheerleaders. Down the street, 13-year-old McKenzie Perkett and her former babysitter Karin Thompson had a plan as well. Were trying to paint the Adirondack Mountains with a house, snow, and a snowman skiing down the mountain, Thompson said. Shes an awesome painter, Perkett said as Thompson painted an elaborate log cabin. The Baird family was down on Beach Road, where they gave each of their three kids a separate window to paint. We usually have one family window, said Wendy. But this year, were all doing separate pictures to cut down on the bickering.
