Lake George Senior Citizens Club President John Herzog gives some instruction on handling an accordion to Lake George High School 12th grader Cole Gailor in an event the club held in April. On Monday Dec. 10, Herzog asked the Lake George Town Board to commit more support to the town’s seniors as well as requesting that the town-sponsored jaunts to the Saratoga Racino, discontinued early this year, be reinstated.

Under a previous administration, the Lake George town government provided a diesel trolley and driver to transport local seniors each month to the Saratoga Raceway & Casino for a day's outing. The new town administration stopped the practice, noting the aging trolley wasn't safe nor built for highway travel. This week, the seniors aired their anger over not having the transportation provided to the Racino and other destinations.
