Downhill Derby: February 18th. We’re looking for events to fill up the vacation week between the Downhill Derby and Brant Lake Winter Carnival… Snowshoe races at Stone Bridge and Caves? a shopping day? an Ice Fishing Tournament? Anyone with ideas or willing to put something together please let a Chamber or TLBA member know!

TLBA and The Carol Theatre joined the Chamber of Commerce with ‘dues’ paid by Brandon Himoff! Thanks Brandon! Al Tolomeo, Tammy LeGare and Drew Cappabianca also joined the Board to help with ‘cross pollination’ between the two organizations.

Town of Chester Christmas Decorations: It was discussed that the Town of Chester could use a more festive atmosphere during the holidays to entice people to visit and shop/eat/whatever…. again, anyone with ideas or suggestions (and willing to help by getting on a committee) please let us know! The TLBA would be willing to help the town, financially and physically, to get more decorations and spruce up the town for the holidays in future years.

Town Bed Tax Monies for 2017. Most of the TLBA event requests have been submitted to both towns.

Rotary Memory tree made +/- $7,000 so thank you to all who supported our local Rotary in this fund raiser!

Book Signing: of Local Author Donna Lagoy’s book ” Underground Railroad in the Adirondacks Town of Chester” on Saturday Dec 17th. If you can’t make the signing, stop by Main St. Ice Cream Parlor to purchase it at any time as it would make a great present or gift for yourself1

There is still time to Support Alternative #1: Earlier this year, New York State purchased this Adirondack Park property with $14.5 million in taxpayer dollars. Now, environmental advocacy groups are pressuring the New York State Adirondack Park Agency and Governor Andrew Cuomo to greatly limit the public’s access to the property, in effect, closing the Boreas Ponds to the disabled, the elderly, children and anyone who is unable to walk long distances.
            To contact the Governor and the APA See link: http://accessadk.com/contact.html .Please stand up for your right to visit this property that you helped pay for. They are bussing in environmental groups from colleges and southern New York to fight Alternative #1 and their numbers are huge so we have to make sure our voice is heard as well.

The address to send a letter to the APA in support of Alternative #1 for the Boreas Pond, East and West MacIntyre tracts:
Kathleen D. Regan, Deputy Director, Planning
Adirondack Park Agency – PO Box 99 – 1133 State Route 86
Ray Brook, NY  12977
            Or you can e-mailed your letters to: [email protected]  and addressed it to Director Regan.  It’s a good idea to also send copies to our legislative leaders (Elise Stefani, Betty Little, Dan Stec )  If anyone needs additional information I’m sure Fred Monroe or Matt Simpson would be happy to speak with you. The Adirondack Park Agency is also holding a public hearing at the NYSDEC office at 625 Broadway in Albany on Wednesday, Dec. 7, at 2 p.m..

St. Patrick’s’ Day Parade: March 11, 2017

Taste of the Tri-Lakes and Rotary Memory Tree lighting: November 29, 2016.
Taste of the Tri-Lakes 5:30-7:30 – Tree Lighting at 6:30. This year’s tree was donated by John & Ann Colburg. Special recognition will be given to Rotarians Ed Bellinger & Jim Crawford who passed away this year. $1 per ticket for restaurant samples, free coffee & smores! Enjoy a fun community night and bring in the season with family and friends!

All restaurants who plan on participating please let us know! DOH forms are being hand delivered and sent via email so please get your forms in to the DOH asap and let us know if you’ll be attending. This event is obviously not about you making money, but about giving back to the community and thanking the ‘locals’ who will keep your business alive during the +/- 8 months our tourism season is not here! Hopefully our 25% ‘give-back’ on ticket sales helps offset your expenses, but in our small community, building relationships makes success, and this is the perfect opportunity to ‘pay it forward’ and enjoy an easy, fun filled evening that brings in the holiday season!
