DEWEY DONATE - Trustees of the Henry Uihlein II and Mildred A. Uihlein Foundation visited Dewey Mountain Recreation Center in Saranac Lake recently and presented a check for $25,000 toward construction of a new base lodge. The Uihlein Foundation offered the grant as a challenge last fall, contingent on Dewey Mountain Friends and Saranac Lake Rotary Foundation raising at least $50,000 in other gifts over the winter. More than 300 generous families and businesses responded with $59,000 in gifts. Dewey Mountain is now well-positioned to match a state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation grant, which it will apply for this year in hopes of breaking ground in spring 2014. Dewey Mountain is a year-round in-town recreation center owned by the Town of Harrietstown. For more information please see DeweyMountain.com or call 891–1080. -
