SARANAC LAKE - Community members will once again have a chance to vote on the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival theme for the coming year, as Winter Carnival Committee members narrowed the field down to four choices March 10.
At its annual organizational meeting in the North Country Community College Board Room, Committee members pooled together a list of 36 theme ideas for the 2011 carnival. With each member casting three votes, four theme ideas rose to the top: Renaissance Faire/Middle Ages, Space Alien Invasion, Celtic Carnival and Under the Big Top/Circus.
Readers of the Adirondack Daily Enterprise will be able to vote for their favorite in one of the paper's upcoming online polls. The Winter Carnival Committee will use the poll results to make its final decision on the 2011 Winter Carnival theme.
In other business, Committee members re-elected its three officers to their positions for the 2011 Winter Carnival: Jeff Dickson, chairman; Katee Fobare, secretary; and Cynthia Martino, treasurer. In addition, two other members were voted to the board: Barb Martin and Eric Foster.
The 2010 Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Recognition Dinner will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 23 at the Saranac Lake Adult Center. Susan Waters volunteered to be the head chef, and she will be serving chicken and biscuits.
Liz Murray's ticket was drawn in the 2010 Winter Carnival afghan raffle, a fundraiser for the Committee.
The next meeting of the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee will be Wednesday, April 14, 6 p.m. at the NCCC Board Room.
