The Saranac Lake Village Improvement Society (VIS) celebrates its 110th anniversary in 2020.

VIS is a not-for-profit organization, staffed by volunteers who are dedicated to enhancing the great natural beauty of our community. Our priority is maintaining our beloved parks for the enjoyment of future generations.

We need new volunteers to join VIS and continue its proud tradition of community beautification and community service. Whether you'd like to volunteer on a regular basis or occasionally volunteer for special projects like flower planting or park clean-up, please fill out our volunteer form.
