Candidates for Saranac Lake Winter Carnival king and queen
Louis has been a resident of Saranac Lake for many years and has a long record of community service. Louis has been a very active member of the Saranac Lake Lions Club and as a member was largely responsible for many of the beautiful floats that have become a part of every Winter Carnival Parade. (It is understood that Louis has again designed a beauty for this year).
He is a member of the Loyal Order of Moose, 457; he is a member of the Harrietstown Housing Authority and worked long and hard for low income housing in our community. He serves on the Harrietstown Board of Review.
With all his community service he was also earning a living and spent over 50 years employed at J. J. O'Connell and only left there when Mr. O'Connell decided to retire from business.
Louis Fobare has devoted much of himself to our community for over 50 years.
