continued Each spring since 1976 the Schroon chamber has sought citizen of the year nominations from the community. The chamber board then makes a selection.
“The chamber of commerce will be recognizing the significant contributions that Bob and Jane have made to our community and area for many years,” the chamber board said in a prepared statement. “They are very dedicated people that have been involved with the Schroon Lake Library, Seagle Music Colony, various music concerts, the bicentennial events, the Schroon Lake Central School and the broadband committee to mention just a few of the many activities and organizations.”
The couple have also been active in the Schroon Lake Arts Council, the local fire department, the emergency squad, the fire auxiliary, the town zoning board and the Paradox Lake Association.
Throughout the day there will be an Adirondack basket raffle at the Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce office on Main Street. The winners will be announced at 8 p.m.
The Word of Life Collegians and Seagle Music Colony will present a patriotic concert at dusk at the town park on the beach.
Fireworks will follow the concert.
