Local farmers’ market is back
The Bolton Farmers’ market kicks off its third season Friday June 28 in great style.
To be held 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays through summer at Blessed Sacrament Church on Goodwin Avenue (off Main St. behind the local bank), the market features local fresh produce along with meats, fish, wine, gourmet foods, cheese, breads and baked goods, waffles, plus naturally grown meat. Live music and local crafts complete the shopping experience.
A Master Gardener from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Warren County will also be on hand, providing gardening information. Cooking demonstrations are also planned. For a vendor list, see: www.boltonlandingfarmersmarket.com.
New to the market this year is the Bolton Farmer’s Market shopping bag, a large canvas bag printed by Cedar Graphics of Bolton. Also, the market is collecting recipes to be featured in the “Best of Bolton Pot Luck” cookbook to benefit the Bolton Free Library. Bring favorite recipes with accompanying stories.
All businesses and non-profits are encouraged to drop off flyers and brochures. Local organizations and businesses can contact the Bolton Chamber of Commerce — sponsor of the market — or market manager Penelope Jewell — to reserve a free spot for promotional materials. To reach Jewell, call 480-9118, or email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bolton EMS seeking volunteers
Although Bolton Emergency Medical Services is always in need of trained emergency medical technicians, the agency also needs drivers, administrative help, equipment maintenance assistance, as well as help stocking medical supplies.
Help from both full-time and part-year residents is appreciated. Assistance from Bolton’s fair-weather residents is welcome because summer is the agency’s busiest time of the year when extra help is vital and immensely appreciated.
Bolton EMS officials said this week they strive to provide local communities with the highest level of emergency medical care and transportation over 24 hours, seven days per week.
