SARANAC LAKE, NY – The Saranac Lake Rotary Club will present its annual Winter Carnival Rotary Show at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 11 at the Harrietstown Town Hall.
“I’m really excited about this year’s Rotary Show,” said Mary Brown, Rotary Show co-chair. “We expect another sellout, we’ve got a great lineup of acts, and it’s going to be a lot of fun for everybody.”
Scott Eichoholz — a “knight” on the town — will provide pre-show entertainment from 7 to 7:30 p.m. Mary Brown will welcome the audience. Rotary Club President John Banta will give the introduction. And the master of ceremonies — Father Rick Dennis — will present the 2011 Winter Carnival court and royalty.
The Winter Carnival royal party includes the king and queen (to be announced the evening of Feb. 4 at Coronation), attendants to the king and queen (Eliza Lennon and Adam Heverly), grand marshal (Cathy Moore), archbishop (Sara Posdzich), chamberlain (Joe Thill), princess (Courtney Ellen Petkovek), prince (William Jeremiah Ward IV), pages (Jacob Adams, Isabelle Celeste, Rachel Daby, Jake Mouraine, Dylan Murnane and Emma Peer), and the High School Court ladies (Gaby Feliu, Faith Conners, Julie Bowler, Cadence Roddy, Ryan Garnish, Geanette Orton and Molly Burgess) and gentlemen (Sean Ryan, Braxton Tissot, Sam Baker, Dalton DeMarco, Dylan Dawson, Wyatt Daviau, and Nicholas Magro).
Steve Borst, the Musician to the Royal Court, will provide entertainment, and there will be dance routines by the pages and court members. This will be followed by performances by the Saranac Lake High School Vocal Ensembles, directed by Helen Demong and accompanied by Tom Delahant. Afterward, there will be acts by Steven Gratto (“Comedy Juggler Extraordinaire”), pianist Joey Izzo, Adirondack singer/songwriter Roy Hurd, storyteller Doug Fitzgerald with “Tales of the North Country,” and finally, the Rotary Show Dancers.
