It’s a huge week in Schroon this week, with the 43rd annual Arts and Crafts Fair, sponsored by the Schroon Lake Association, being among the highlights. This fair is huge. More than 100 selected vendors will be at the Town Park above the beach this Saturday, July 21st. We’ll have a full report later this week. So lets spin the Schroon Lake Fun-O-Meter and see what else comes up.
