Sheridans’ Spanish pilgrimage featured
On Jan. 29, Carol and Ed Sheridan of Bolton presented a slide show depicting their lengthy hike last summer over a famous trail through the northern Spanish countryside.
The travelogue, held in the Bolton Free Library, attracted a standing-room-only crowd.
The Sheridan’s hike last June was on the trail of “The Camino,” also known as The Way of St. James, an 800 kilometer pilgrimage. The Sheridans hiked 110 kilometers, ending in Santiago di Compostela. They and others on the pilgrimage were given “passports” that were stamped along the way at various hostels, inns, restaurants, pubs, and churches. At the end they were awarded certificates for their accomplishment.
At the recent travelogue presentation, the audience was provided Sangria by Carol Sheridan and tapas by the Lakeside Lodge. The slide show was followed by a question and answer session.
McDonald Real Estate marks 25th year
This year, McDonald Real Estate of Bolton is celebrating 25 years of serving area citizens. Through those years, Willie Bea and Frank McDonald have been dedicated not only to their enterprise, but for helping develop the local economy. Among their many accomplishments are launching and heading up the Bolton Landing Business Association which annually decorates the downtown streetscape for the holidays, presents hayrides with Santa and lighting the Christmas tree. The organization’s members also erect seasonal banners, plant flowers, assemble holiday gifts and baskets for local residents in need, and organize the Fourth of July fireworks and festivities.
Some observers have said the McDonalds are responsible for the town being as successful as it is today. They have been dedicated to the well-being of the business community for the last quarter century. We all wish the McDonalds continued success in their real estate enterprise as well as their efforts on behalf of the town of Bolton.
