Contractors of the future' help break ground for Adirondack Carousel

The toad was carved by retired Beekmantown art teacher Jack Barrette, and houses a time capsule.

According to Adirondack Carousel organizers, the project is being funded by private donations, including nearly $100,000 of in-kind services and donated construction materials; more than $300,000 in donated Carousel figures; a $340,000 grant from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation; a bridge loan from NBT Bank; and a $20,000 grant from state Sen. Betty Little (R-Queensbury).
