North Creek Business Alliance adds color to the streets of North Creek

The banners did not go unnoticed by locals as they made their habitual trips into North Creek.

"The banners look nice," said Time Record. "Now we just need to work on sprucing up the poles."

Some banners boast the slogan of the Gore Mountain Region Chamber of Commerce, "Purely Adirondack" while others promote, "An Authentic Ski Town."

In agreement with the purpose of NCBA, the committee opted to use local businesses to complete the project. Garnet Signs of Chestertown supplied the materials and hung the banners. Photography was supplied by James McEntee and designs were created by Linda Wohlers, a new resident to the community.

Also, local people are featured as the subjects in banner photos. Bill Thomas, who for 18 years served as the supervisor for the town of Johnsburg, and presently sits as one of the commissioners of the Adirondack Park Association and occasional conductor of the Upper Hudson River Railroad, can be seen on one of the first banners, followed by Gail Setlock, Snow Sports supervisor at Gore Mountain, Michelle Pollock of Lake George Kayak with Warren County assistant DA Jason Carusone cross country skiing, and many more.

The committee wishes to thank the town of Johnsburg and the Bed Tax Committee for its support and pledges its efforts to unselfishly continue to promote the town, its residents and businesses through volunteer economic development efforts.
