Community Development

Projects, Committees, Clubs, and more!

Consider this, your starting point to discover the great things going on behind the scenes, and as a way to "get involved" with the extraordinary and dedicated volunteers, who strive to make improvements to this wonderful place we live, work, play... and visit.



administered BY OUR COMMUNITY



The Northern New York Community Fund (NNYCF) is providing the towns of Clifton and Fine with a 50 K challenge. To kick-off establishing our own community fund, NNYCF will match every dollar we raise, up to $50,000. If we meet this goal by December of 2014, our fund, which will be directed by local people for local projects, will begin with an endowment of $100,000.       




Bridging Our Community

The Wanakena Footbridge Rebuild Project

On January 13, 2014 the one hundred twelve year old suspension bridge in Wanakena was heavily damaged by an ice jam. Together with the Town of Fine, the WHA is raising funds to rebuild this bridge. The campaign slogan: Revive, Rebuild, Recover was chosen to convey that the Wanakena footbridge is an icon of the Western Adirondacks and is cherished not only by the residents of Wanakena, but also by the many families who have lived here, visitors, hikers and especially Ranger School students who have passed through this tiny hamlet. Consider helping our community recover by DONATING to the fund that is designated to rebuild the Wanakena footbridge.
