Dewey Donation - Five members of the Adirondack Aktion Club (in bright T-shirts) recently presented a check to members of Dewey Mountain Friends and the Harrietstown Town Board at Dewey Mountain Recreation Center in Saranac Lake. The Aktion Club, part of Kiwanis International, staged community dances to raise funds toward the effort to replace the dilapidated base lodge behind them. Several members of the club also train at Dewey Mountain for Special Olympics snowshoe races. Dewey Mountain is a year-round, in-town recreation center owned by the Town of Harrietstown. The donation will help match a grant the Saranac Lake Rotary Foundation is seeking via the North Country Economic Development Council in hopes of breaking ground in spring 2014. For more information please see DeweyMountain.com or call 891–1080.
