SARANAC LAKE — May 25 marked Nancy LaBombard’s 30th year serving as the staff accountant for the Adirondack North Country Association. At its quarterly board meeting on June 9, ANCA’s board of directors unanimously adopted a resolution in recognition of LaBombard’s long-standing service to the regional economic development organization and to the local community.

Presented by ANCA Board President Kelly Chezum at High Falls Gorge in Wilmington, the resolution celebrates LaBombard’s contributions to the economic development nonprofit, its staff and its mission, as well as her volunteer service in the Saranac Lake area.

“Through our members, elected representatives and staff, ANCA has been a collaborative partner on many projects that matter for economic sustainability in our communities since 1955,” said Chezum. “On behalf of the Board of Directors, we gratefully acknowledge Nancy LaBombard for her dedication and loyalty as an ANCA employee for the last 30 of those years and her role in making the organization what it is today. It’s employees like Nancy who care deeply about local people and businesses that allow ANCA to have such a strong impact in our region.”

“I was surprised, honored and flattered to be recognized in this way,” LaBombard said. “I’ve always worked behind the scenes, so to be recognized by the board is really special. It shows that we all play an important role in keeping ANCA the forward-moving organization it is. I have really enjoyed my time at ANCA and being part of this amazing team.”

From youth programs and sports teams to local committees, boards and events; LaBombard has been involved in a variety of volunteer efforts since she moved to Saranac Lake in 1986. Among her achievements over the years, the board highlighted LaBombard’s coronation as Saranac Lake’s 2018 Winter Carnival Queen — an honor bestowed on local citizens for their contributions to the well-being of the Saranac Lake community.
