tmtmtwc uJrilntnc ttBB Vol. 104 No. 12- Gouverneur, N.Y. 20 pages- 35 cents Wednesday, November 7. 1990 'Christmas in the Park' new concept for Gouverneur C of C In a new twist to Christmas season promotions here, Gouverneur chamber ofi cials are planning a day of outdoor winter fun in the village park. The event- to be appropriately dubbed \Christmas in the Park\- is slated for Saturday, December 15. A mam focus of the chamber's Christmas present to the community will be a snow sculpturing contest. Eiion Conkhn and Mike Cloonan, who are spearheading the project, are hoping that a number of Gouverneur area business, church, civic and school groups will sign up to take part and try their hands at fashioning a statue or design out of snow and ice. The creations w ill be divided into four categories by type of entrant (business, school group, service organi/ation- adult or youth, and an open division). There will be cash prizes for entries judged first, second or third in each of the four categories. The start of construction is set for 10a.m. that day. Judging will close the contest at about 2p.m. In the event snow cover is thin in early December, organizers intend to make arrangements with several large lonal companies who will be encour- aged to stockpile snow next month from plowing operations in their parking lots. In a pinch the material can be trucked to the park site. It is also hoped that the sculptors will have access to water- via nearby fire hydrants- in order to ice down their creations. Organizers intend to approach fire department officials with that request in the next week. -And while the snow artisans are busy with their projects that day, there'll be a number of other activities for other local folks to join in. Among the activities being discussed by the chamber committee are snowshoe races, a snow ball tournament (winter soft- ball), tug of war contests, children's games such as three legged races and a visit from the jolly oV gent himself, who'll likclv have sweet treats for the kids. Christmas music w ill also fill the park thai day, piped around through the public address system donated to the village park by the chamber several years ago. Jt is also hoped that one of the local groups will make available hot refreshments for sale in the park that day to Lake the chill a*ay from participants and spectators. For information about this new event or to sign up v join in some of the fun, contact cither E-'ldon Conklin at 2K\*-2P2O or Mike Cloonan at 287-4012. Rec.
