NINTH ANNUAL ® 2015 SARANAC LAKE DECEMBER 31, 2014
The First Night® Saranac Lake Board of Directors would like to thank all who were involved in this year's New Year's Eve event. Overall the evening was a huge success with very positive feedback from attendees and performers. We would not be successful without the support of the community. A huge thank you to all our volunteers - those who helped in the preceding months and weeks as well as the evening of the event. Thanks also to our sponsors, venues, sound technicians and performers. Every year we work very hard to offer a variety of entertainment. First Night® 2015 was no exception. The venues were filled with everything from Shakespeare to Celtic Rock.
We would like to invite comments and suggestions from all interested par ties. Please email us. We look forward to our Tenth First Night on December 31, 2015 and hope for many more to come.
FIRST NIGHT® SARANAC LAKE - A LOOK TO THE FUTURE
First Night Saranac Lake had another great year. After nine years, we are still amazed at the wonderful community support we get. Our all-volunteer board works year-round to bring Saranac Lake a quality experience. First Night® may be only a one-night event, but it takes hundreds of hours throughout the year to make it happen. We, of course, couldn't do it without our numerous dedicated volunteers who do everything from checking buttons at the venues to shoveling entrance ways.
As First Night® Saranac Lake looks back over the past nine years and prepares for a grand 10th year celebration, we find ourselves contemplating our future. First Night® currently has ten board members, most of who have been
on the board from the beginning.
We need some enthusiastic new people with fresh ideas to
help us if we hope to continue
presenting an exciting, entertaining New Year's Eve. We
need people to work on everything
from booking performers, fundraising, bookkeeping, creating promotional materials and
managing the venues on the night of the event. New people always bring new ideas to an
organization. Please consider becoming a board member or
joining one of our committees.
We'd like to get together with everyone interested in exploring how First Night works
and how you could help. We will hold an informational meeting on Wednesday, February
18th at 5:30 at the Saranac Lake Library. It will be a chance for you to get to know us and
hear about what goes on behind the scenes to make First Night a reality. We hope you'll
Want more information or have questions? Please email us.
Help us keep First Night a vibrant part of our community by getting involved. We
can't do it without you.
