Indian Lake Offers Free Face Masks

Now that face masks are deemed “essential,” (and required in public to help stop the spread of COVID-19), a group of volunteers in Indian Lake have been making cloth masks and distributing them free of charge. As of Friday, April 17,  they are available for pick up at Pines Country Store in Indian Lake and in the vestibule of the Adirondack Lakes Center for The Arts in Blue Mountain Lake. The contributors ask people to only take one per person. Those willing to help out with the effort by donating masks can drop them off at the Pines Country Store.

Following are the organizations and businesses that partnered to create this offer:

Adirondack Foundation: Sudden Urgent Needs Fund

Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts

Blue Mountain Center: Hamilton Helps Project

Indian Lake Community Development Corporation

North Country Crafters

Pine’s Country Store

    Neil,

    I would love to buy a mask from Joan. Not only would I be safe, but it would make me feel good wearing one that she made. I am more than willing to pay for the mask and shipping. Not looking for a free-bee.

    Thank you,

    Bob

    God bless the Crafters and the organizations that contributed to making the ‘masks for free’ possible! Thank you for doing this for your community. Indian Lake is a special place filled with special people.
