Deadline nearing for Schroon nominations

SCHROON LAKE - The Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce is seeking its 2010 citizen/organization of the year.

The deadline to make a nomination is May 11.

Established in 1976, the award honors an area resident or organization who has made a significant and sustained contribution to the quality of life in Schroon Lake. The chamber will honor the person or organization at its annual dinner in June.

Nominations can be made by writing a letter to the Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce, PO Box 726, Schroon Lake 12870. Call the chamber office at 532-7675 for more information.

The chamber board of directors will select the citizen/organization of the year and will announce the winner May 18.

"Your nomination letter should include the accomplishments for which this person or organization should be honored," said Rosemarie Ritson of the chamber. "Details of the achievements, volunteer endeavors, personal characteristics, community support and efforts toward quality of life improvements will be considered. The nominee need not be a chamber of commerce member, but must reside in the town of Schroon, North Hudson, Paradox or Severance. "

Ed Donley was the 2009 Schroon Lake Citizen of the Year.

Donley was selected as a "jack of all trades."
