Party time!

LaFlamme’s, chamber to host fall fest

LaFlamme’s Inc. in Whitehall will be hosting a grand opening celebration this Saturday.
A free music concert to celebrate the opening of the Whitehall site will be held at the Pavilion in Skenesborough Park on Saturday, Sept. 25, from 4 to 7 p.m. featuring the music of Billie Jones and Out of Control.
The concert, which is being sponsored by LaFlamme’s and the Whitehall Chamber of Commerce, is free and open to the public.


“Opening a store in a community is far more important to me than just finding ways to make money,” said Chris LaFlamme, owner of LaFlamme’s Inc. “It comes with a responsibility to give back to that community. Sometimes giving back before you even really get started.  Businesses can and do make towns a better place to live.”
LaFlamme said as an added bonus to all those who attend will be the opportunity to win more than $3,000 in prizes.  Those prizes include a flat panel television, many gifts and much more.
“The local businesses have donated over $3,000 in prizes including a flat screen TV, Serta mattress set, $200 gift certificate to Dockside Jewelers, and many more gift certificates from Finch and Chubb, S & J Eatery, Whitehall Pet Center and MacLeod’s just to name a few,” said LaFlamme.
There will also be plenty of food and refreshments.
“There will be refreshments available including hot dogs, popcorn, snow cones and more,” said LaFlamme. “There will be a pizza concession stand by the Boy Scouts, and plenty of other treats.”
Along with help from the businesses in the community, LaFlamme said he wanted to use the opening event as a way to give back to the village.
“Don’t forget to visit the Whitehall charities that will also be present at the event to raise money for each of their organizations,” said LaFlamme. “The Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Cheerleaders’ Booster Club and the Whitehall Ecumenical Food Pantry will have raffles, games and more.”
LaFlamme said that he has had a lot of support from the community to bring the event to life.
“The Whitehall Chamber of Commerce, Community Bank and Stan’s TV and Appliance Repair have joined with me here at LaFlamme’s Inc. to help make this event possible,” said LaFlamme.
