To the editor:
Special thanks to The Pickled Pig restaurant for their efforts to raise money for local youth organizations. Their first dinner on Oct. 13 raised over $1,100 for the Shipman Youth Center and Lake Placid Central School's Backpack Program. Last week, they offered dinner to support the Elementary School's Playground campaign and raised $1,367.
The Playground is in Phase 2. Phase 1 was completed in 2012. The design is compliant with the American Disabilities Act and allows access to all students as well as provides much needed features for those students with various needs. This gives students that much needed break to "recharge" as studies find is essential for success.
The playground is usable year-round to extend its availability and follows the ever changing insurance regulations. The new design combines structures from our current playground with components requested from the number one use - the students.
On Jan. 11, the Pickled Pig will once again offer their Chow Down for Charity with donations supporting the youth programs of the Lake Placid/ Wilmington Connecting Youth and Communities Coalition. The dinner promises to be excellent. Patrons are treated to a free fixed plate and dessert which highlights some of the Pickled Pig's favorite items. At the conclusion of the meal diners are invited to leave a donation to the charity. The Pickled Pig generously donates all of the food and their staff time.
