Business briefs: Sept. 30, 2012


The View Restaurant Executive Chef Jarrad Lang meets with each guest chef in advance, and a three-course presentation is created. The guest chef arrives on Wednesday afternoon and joins Lang’s crew to create a memorable evening. The concept has caught on with area residents and hotel guests alike.

Each local guest chef night offers an appetizer, entrée and dessert for just $29 with no reservations needed.

Visitors are invited to dine and meet a North Country food icon during this Wednesday night series.

Member night

ELIZABETHTOWN — The Elizabethtown Community Hospital Auxiliary is hosting a new-member night on Wednesday at 6 p.m. in the hospital boardroom. Anyone interested in becoming a member is welcome to attend.

The auxiliary participates in fundraising efforts throughout the year, with all proceeds supporting the hospital. The group donates clothing and snacks to those who need emergency-room care, offers care packages to chemotherapy patients and gives gifts and flowers to patients in the hospital during the holidays. It also provides scholarship funding and purchases equipment for the hospital’s various departments.

Contact Jane Hooper at 873-3003 for additional information.

Accreditation received

LAKE PLACID — Debbie Strack, a family child care business owner in Lake Placid, has been awarded a National Accreditation from the National Association for Family Child Care (NAFCC).

“I decided to pursue accreditation because of my desire to offer the highest quality child care and be the best provider that I can be for the children entrusted in my care,” Strack said.

Strack has been providing care in her home for 25 years. She serves children ages six weeks through 5 years old from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

NAFCC offers accreditation to providers across the country, aiding them in raising their standards of quality care and gaining them the respect and recognition they deserve for their commitment to quality and children. The accreditation was made possible for Strack through a grant from the New York State Educational Incentive Program.
