Parades planned to honor local Olympians

LAKE PLACID (AP) — Lake Placid and Saranac Lake are planning parades to honor local Olympic athletes after they return home.

Kelly Morgan of the Women’s Civic Chamber says she’s been reaching out to the athletes and figures the Saranac Lake festivities will be at the end of March.

Some of the athletes are attending World Cup events in Norway, while others have been invited to visit the White House.

Lake Placid Mayor Craig Randall also says it’s too early to set a concrete date for the Olympic village’s event.
