Next Thursday we will welcome in a new year - 2009. Will it be a good year or a bad year, who can predict. Although much depends on all the national and world wide events, much of what happens individually depends on one's own choices and decisions. Here's wishing each of you a great new year.
Bolton Central resumes Jan 5
Academic classes from pre-k to grade 12 will resume on Monday, Jan. 5 after a two week vacation for the holiday season. The January extra-curricular activities also fill the calendar with clubs and sports predominating.
Book Club meets Jan 12
The Bolton Free Library Book Club will meet Monday, Jan. 12 at 7:00 p.m. to discuss "Pillars of the Earth" by Ken Follett. 'Pillars of the Earth' sweeps through four decades of 12th Century England, drawing the listener into the raw, flamboyant middle ages. It is a shining saga of good and evil, treachery and intrigue, violence and beauty. Not-so-noble knights, righteous heroes, valiant heroines and both virtuous and immoral men of God highlight this story. They manipulate, and are in turn manipulated, by the political turmoil and unrest between the reigns of Henry I and Henry II.
Ken Follett, author of six #1 bestsellers, reaches beyond the expected to achieve his most brilliant and remarkable novel. The epic story of the building of a cathedral in 12th century England and the lives of the people entwined with it and with each other is a sensuous, enduring narrative, and a gripping tale of faith, ambition, bloodshed and betrayal.
BCS Students attend ACC
Thanks to an arrangement formed a few years back, BCS students are able to finish their twelfth grade at ACC in Glens Falls. The original agreement was done some years back and then re-negotiated by Supt Ray Ciccarelli a few years ago. A new regulation at the State Education Department level allowed this to occur. This arrangement opens the doors for students to attend ACC a year earlier than normal and take advantage of the courses and activities at ACC.
