South Of the Schroon Border: The Tri-Lakes Business Alliance Kicking It Up

Our friends in South Schroon are a busy bunch. Here is the latest from their General Board Meeting Minutes,  from early May.

From Cindy Mead:

Pedal to Plate: May 20th:  Adirondack area bike ride, "Pedal to Plate," a 55-mile culinary tour of the North Country circling three scenic lakes and traveling through picturesque Adirondack hamlets. Travels from The Hub in Brant Lake and circles Schroon Lake. Stops are planned at several restaurants so riders can sample their offerings free of charge - restaurants including the Adirondack General Store, Black Bear Restaurant, The Bullhouse, OP Fredericks, Panther Mtn. Inn, Flanagan's Pub & Grill, Sticks & Stones, Cafe Adirondack, The Main Street Ice Cream Parlor, The Crossroads, Paradox Brewery, The Odd Duck, and the ice cream stand at Stone Bridge & Caves. The ride concludes with a tap-takeover from Paradox Brewery at The Hub. 

An Adirondack Woof Stock: June 3&4. We still have room for sponsors to be advertised on this year's T-shirts and to be on all the onsite advertising - $100 (checks can be made out to TLBA - PO Box 56 - Chestertown 12817) Let us know asap so we get your name on the shirts! Please let us know if you'd like to help out either beforehand in the planning stages or if you can volunteer either day to sell t-shirts, etc. We're also having a new 2K dog/person walk/run on Sunday at 11AM.... best dressed pair win a prize... walk will start at the Chester field at 11AM, go up Theriot Ave down Pine St. and back to the main field!

Woofstock Revisited on the Mill Pond: June 3 6PM-11PM at the Hub in Chestertown with free pontoon boat rides on the Mill by EZ Marine and possible firework display!!!! Vendors, live music, glow in the dark beach balls - family friendly!

Scholarship Committee: A discussion was held as to whether to give a scholarship to North Warren School this year as there has been no TLBA volunteer activity from this year’s class. A new committee was voted in (Jaki Rainsberger, Jo Anne Nick, Al & Linda Muench and Brandon Himoff) and they will decide what we want to do.

Rack Cards: Have been ordered (10,000 of them to start) - these cards show all the upcoming events in the area so if you can put upa display box in your business just let us know! Thanks to Brandon Himoff for putting these together this year!

Welcome Back Schroon Lake Lovers

Summer is just around the corner...can you feel it in the air? YES WE CAN - ALMOST!  And that's why we are hearing from our friends at the East Shore Schroon Lake Association, Jane Smith, Karen Schmieder, and Mary Schoembs:

"It's that time of year again -- ESSLA is planning its annual Dinner and Basket Raffle. Last year our 50th Anniversary Dinner had a record turnout. We hope this year will be even better. Once again, Jimbo's Club At The Point will host us for another family-style sit-down dinner.

We have outstanding baskets and gift certificates for raffle this year, says Sally Paland, chair of the Basket Raffle Committee.

Another highlight this year will be a tantalizing and stunning dessert buffet, including mini shooters, cupcakes, petit fours, eclairs, brownies, cookies and more. You won't want to miss it, and there will be take-home bags as well.

Something else that's new this year will be table reservations. You can reserve a table for 10 for $350 to host your own dinner party. Email or call us to make arrangements.

Be sure to RSVP to let us know you're coming. The cost is $35 per person. You can pay online by clicking this link or mail your check to P.O. Box 206, Adirondack NY 12808. You can RSVP by emailing or call in your reservation at 914.475.2654. More info at

We look forward to saying hello and catching up after a long winter. See you there, neighbors and friends!"
