The Big Guns Have Been Bought In to Fight Evasives.

Take a look at this new sign on Route 74: the new Boat Washing Decontamination station near Paradox Lake, the latest project to protect our watershed, is finally a reality.

The station is the result of countless hours of hard work by the dedicated members of  the Schroon Lake Association, The Paradox Lake Association and the East Shore Schroon Lake Association. All three joined together to purchase the boat decontamination station aka (BDS) for use by watercraft using Schroon and Paradox Lakes.

The associations raised more $25,000 to help the Town of Schroon to purchase the BDS, which was installed last Thursday (August 31st). More from Schroon Lake Association President Mark Granger, after the jump:

Wine Tasting For A Great Cause


It’s one of autumn’s most anticipated events: the Annual Wine Tasting at Sticks & Stones to raise funds for the Schroon Lake Library.

Mark your calendars -- Sunday, September 17 from 2pm - 4 pm -- for appetizers, courtesy of Steve and Gary, various flights of wine and entertainment by Vinnie Leddick.

Patty Kosiba is the sommelier, providing the wines to taste. Once you find your new favorite, you can purchase them from the Schroon Lake Wine and Liquor Store. A portion of the purchase will benefit the library.

One of the organizers, Pam Scavera, says Sticks & Stones will also provide non-alcoholic beverages for those who do not drink wine.

“It's a great afternoon of good wine, good food, good music and good company to benefit a good cause. With the library expansion, every fundraising dollar is important,” says Pam.

The event is proudly sponsored by Friends of the Schroon Lake Library.
