In Lake Placid tonight a group of Lake Placid Elementary School parents and community members will be offering an Italian Feast to support a new playground called Paw Print Park. A variety of local restaurants such as Villa Vespa, Crowne Plaza, Main Street Pizza, Hohmeyers, Paul Smiths College are providing the feast with donated items from Gauthier’s, Northwood School and Steak and Seafood Company. The menu is baked ziti, lasagna, grain salad, green salad, homemade sauce and meatballs, and a variety of yummy desserts.
This is not a private endeavor. It is a huge undertaking organized by parents to replace the existing 20-year-old playground. As funds and grants are being raised for this new renovation at the public school, the public has been and always will be welcome to use and continue to use the playground.
The new proposal has a school garden, composting facility as well as natural playground in a similar style as The Wild Center's The Pines.
The fee is minimal for food provided by some of the best eateries in the area. (Dinner cost: $8/adult, $7/senior, $6/child) so enjoy a meal out and support a healthy cause. While we fil outselves with Italian food we will be helping children, visitors and locals, maintain an active lifestyle. Buon appetito!
Dinner is from 4:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. while "to go" orders are available from 4:00 p.m.-5:30 p.m. Call 637-2534 to place your order.
