Annual library cook-off scheduled
A popular community social event that was a considerable success in its debut year of 2012, is returning in several weeks.
Back by popular demand, the Bolton Library’s Cookoff is to be held Sunday, Nov. 3 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Bolton Community Center on Edgecomb Pond Road.
Area residents as well as experienced chefs are encouraged to enter their favorite culinary creations. Prizes will be awarded in both professional and amateur categories.
Jeffrey Strief, proprietor of Happy Jack’s, a popular local gift and toy store, will serve as the event’s Master of Ceremonies. Wine and other beverages are to be available. An admission fee of a $5 donation allows attendees to vote for their favorite concoction, and sampling of the dishes.
The deadline for entries is Oct. 30. Contact Megan at 644-2233 for entry applications and event details. All are welcome to attend.
Bolton’s long-standing book club meets
The Bolton Book Club, established in 1928, held its organizational meeting in late September at Lynn Gollhofer’s home and the group members have selected books to read for the upcoming season.
The club is limited to 24 members, with each member reporting on one book each year. Meetings are held from September through June continuing an age-old tradition — matching the school calendar — that began when women typically did not work outside the home.
Three book reports are given at each meeting, followed by a social hour. This format is also a traditional practice.
New members are added to the club whenever there is a vacancy. Those interested in becoming a member are invited to submit a letter stating one’s name, address and telephone number. The letter is kept on file and the next vacancy is filled according to date received. Such letters of interest can be addressed to Kathy Conerty, 210 North Bolton Road, Bolton Landing, NY 12814.
