Walk of Fame' induction ceremony this weekend

Bill Demong will be inducted into the Saranac Lake Walk of Fame during a ceremony this weekend.

Tickets to Saturday's induction ceremony honoring the Olympic champion and Vermontville native are still available.

The ceremony and gala reception kicks off at 4 p.m. in the Grand Reception Hall at the Hotel Saranac and features entertainment, cocktails and gourmet hors d'oeurves catered by locally acclaimed restaurant Nonna Fina.

This week, volunteers - led by Village Clerk Kareen Tyler - will assemble an exhibit of Demong's history in the hotel's four store fronts along Main Street as part of the festivities.

The first ever induction ceremony will commence with a video log of Demong's Olympic victories and follow with prominent speakers and the unveiling of a solid bronze Walk of Fame plaque, which will be installed on the front fa ade of the Harrietstown Town Hall.

Tickets are priced at $30 per person or $50 per couple, with all after-expense proceeds going toward future Walk of Fame and Mayor's Cup events.

For tickets, the public is encouraged to call the village offices at 891-4150 or visit the village's website at www.sarancalkeny.gov.
