Ursula Trudeau named Grand Marshal of Carnival Parade

— Trudeau signed 100 posters as fundraisers for the benefit of Winter Carnival. Unsigned posters are also available. Trudeau, who was raised in Saranac Lake, has been creating the Winter Carnival button design since 1981 and offered his first poster design in 2012.

Signed posters cost $60 and unsigned posters cost $15, including tax. There is an additional cost for shipping if local pick-up is not possible. Most signed posters have already been claimed by advance order, so anyone interested in a signed poster should contact Jeff Dickson immediately as quantities are limited. To purchase a poster contact Mr. Dickson at 891-4344.

Unsigned posters will also be sold during Winter Carnival on Jan. 31 through Feb. 9 at its headquarters located at 141 River Street, at Ampersound located at 52 Main Street and at K&E Enterprises on Broadway. A raffle will also be held for poster #1. Sales are limited to 100 raffle tickets at a cost of $5 each. Tickets are available from Jeff Dickson until the opening of carnival on Jan. 31 and then will be available at headquarters until Feb. 9.

Arctic golf, Spike of Ice set

The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee has introduced a new event called Arctic Golf. The event will be held on Sunday, Feb. 2, from noon to 3 p.m. at the Village Park next to the State Boat Launch on River Street, which is nearby the Ice Palace.

Arctic Golf is a non-competitive miniature golf event designed for all ages. The course will feature creative obstacles made of snow and ice designed to pose a challenge for golfers. The event will offer those that enjoy miniature golf with a rare opportunity to play the sport in winter. There is no fee or registration required for the event.

Blue Line Brewery is the official sponsor for the Arctic Golf event. Saranac Inn Golf and Country Club in Saranac Lake and Craig Wood Golf Club in Lake Placid are supporting the event by providing golf clubs and golf balls.
