As Santa and his Elves are crushing it right about now, making sure that everyone gets what they want, it's time to reflect on the recent visit of Mr. and Mrs. Claus to our hamlet. Enjoy. And Merry Christmas from all of us here at Schroon Laker.
"T’was a night to remember, that’s for sure
When excited happy families, were lined out the door
The place of much interest, was Schroon’s grand old Strand
Here were kids of all ages, waiting for “The Man”
You know, that big fella, with the whitest of beards
With his lovely smiling bride, full of good cheer
And why were they here, making so merry?
Because of Strand owners, Liz and Larry
For more than a decade, when the Sugarbowl closed its doors
This couple have welcomed good ol’ Santy Claus
It’s a joy to do this, we heard from Liz
As kids nearby, were all in a tizz
And even Larry, who’d been silent a while
Looked over the joy, and cracked a big smile
A huge thanks to these two, and all who bought cheer
Helen from the Timberwolf, with coloring books, not beer
And Stewarts, too, with ice cream for all
And books from Friends of the Library
So much more fun, than a trip to the Mall
So give thanks for our town
And all who make it great
The place we love and cherish
Here on beautiful Schroon Lake"
