Hip and Happening: South of Schroon: Kayaks, Rock and Roll and Hunting!

Get ready for the latest missive from The Tri-Lakes Business Alliance: From mighty Cindy Mead, with the minutes from their July 10 meeting. The gang meets this Friday at 9am at the Panther Inn.

Kayak Poker Run

An idea was brought up to have a Poker Run on Brant Lake as the ATV Poker runs are probably a thing of the past and these were great fundraisers for the Alliance.

Don Butler will head this committee and Cindy Mead, Christine Caunter, Al Tolomeo, & Sue Mead will help on the committee -- not sure if this will come together this year but will look into plans for 2016.

Carol Theatre

The Beatles concert on July 8 brought in 180 people with $690 going to the TLBA. Great time had by all! Try to get out and see these live shows, as the performances are always spectacular!

Next performance is Jim Gaudet & The Railroad Boys (Acoustic Americana Roots Music), July 22 @7:00 PM. $10 admission.

Next up: George Wonder Big Band (this was awesome event last year!) and it's on for July 25 @ 7:30 PM $20 admission.

We will also be having Vote Night at the George Wonder concert where you can vote for your favorite 'Conductor' and they will have the honor of directing the band that evening! Cast your vote for Fred Monroe, Helena Robbins or Donnie Butler!!!


Are held each performance and restaurant gift certificates ($50) are needed and your establishment will be repeatedly announced on stage the night of the performance. Great tax write-off and we obviously recommend those who help us out with these raffles and other TLBA events.

We'd also like to thank Bob Swan for putting new items in the theatre building and the 'behind the scene' things he does to bring the building up to snuff, often declining the 'rent' we pay after each performance.

Advertising Representative

The TLBA and the theatre group need an individual to take over the advertising for our events and performances. There are a lot of free advertising opportunities out there and we need someone to co-ordinate the advertising campaigns for our events. If interested, please call Al at 518-494-5318.

 Sportsman's Weekend

Sponsored by the North Warren Chamber of Commerce. The Crossroads  -- over September 11,12 & 13 -- will have hunting and fishing lectures, guest speaker from a major hunting magazine editor and possible archery lessons and/or demonstrations. Events will be held at Dynamite Hill and both the Chester and Horicon Town Halls.

 Adirondack North Country Alliance

A meeting was held on Wednesday, July 15th at Long Lake. Please call Craig Leggett at 518-494-2324 for more information.

Woof Stock

The TLBA ended up with minimal cost for sponsoring an Adirondack Woof Stock - thanks to the sponsors, donations and generous monies received from the Town of Chester and the Town of Horicon, we've all ready reserved the 'entertainment' portion of the event (Hudson Valley Dock Dogs, Bean Town Disc Dogs & Doggie Fun Zone) and we're looking forward to having it again on Father's Day weekend 2016.

Farmers Market

Over 1,100 people attended the market July 8th breaking the 1,000 mark!!!!! Congrats to the ladies and gentleman who make this happen every week and thanks to all of our patrons!

Golf Outing

The annual Golf Outing to benefit the TBLA will be held Friday October 2nd at Cronin's. It’s a 1PM start with dinner afterward. Anyone willing to help with this please call Doug O'Brien @ #494-4565 or email him here
