Rotary auction to assist community projects

SILVER BAY - The Northern Lake George Rotary Club is looking for help.

The club is seeking donations for its annual auction to be held as part of the Beste Scholarship dinner Saturday, Feb. 13.

The dinner is held annually in conjunction with the Hague Winter Weekend.

The dinner will be at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Hague fire house.

The buffet dinner will be an Italian meal. Tickets are $15 for adults. The meal is being catered by Silver Bay YMCA of the Adirondacks.

Following the dinner the annual Beste Scholarships will be awarded and the Northern Lake George Rotary Club will host its auction.

"The Rotary Club of Northern Lake George is dedicated to serving our neighbors, community, country and world," said President Michelle Benedict. "Whether in supplying musical instruments to middle school children, helping with Boy Scout projects, donating food to pantries, giving to Tiny Tim, providing scholarships to high school students, helping our volunteer fire departments, sponsoring international exchange students or sending donations to needy children in other countries, we are there.

"Our community support goes to Ticonderoga, Hague, Bolton and Putnam and in 2010 we have budgeted over $7,000 for our outreach purposes, all of which we must raise ourselves," she said.

People interested in making a donation can contact auction chairpeople Julie Cook at 543-6421, Beth Navitsky at 543-6929 or Chip Devenger at 543-8833 ext 215.

"Some of the (auction) proceeds we make will go towards helping fund the scholarship for our Ticonderoga students and the the rest will go towards community needs," Navitsky said. "Throughout the year we receive many letters requesting funding for community and world wide projects. The auction along with other fund raisers will allow us to continue to see these projects go forward."

For information on the Winter Weekend call the Hague Chamber of Commerce at 543-6441.
