BOLTON LANDING - There are rumors circulating that restaurants in the Bolton area are not open this winter season. That is not true, although some have gone to a weekend schedule. The majority are up and running and preparing the same delicious food you have come to enjoy during the summer months. Enjoying a meal at one of our local restaurants is the perfect remedy for a case of cabin fever!
Considering the recent cold weather we've been experiencing, it looks like Lake George will be ready for the upcoming Bolton Classic Ice Fishing Derby scheduled for Feb. 20. The event is sponsored by the Bolton Landing Chamber of Commerce and the Kiwanis Club of Glens Falls. Call Karl Klein 743-1116 for entry forms and information.
Snowbirds Pete and JoAnn Smith reported this week that their weather was 32 degrees in Naples, Fla.
They know it is hard for us to sympathize, but when they are used to wearing flip-flops, the frigid weather has forced them to dress creatively. Fortunately for their dog Oliver, in packing for their excursion south, they included one heavy sweatshirt that they share in order to take him for walks.
The weather also forced Nancy Rhodes to the treadmill instead of enjoying her daily walks along the beach and streets of Marco Island.
Chamber, Sagamore help with heating bills
Speaking of the cold weather, the Bolton Landing Chamber of Commerce is pleased to be able to help some residents pay their heating bills this winter through the "Heat Our Neighbor" program. The Sagamore Resort generously donated $5,000 just as they did last year. Along with donations made mostly by the business community, the Chamber will be able to help at least 20 families this winter.
