Car Hops: Starting in June and running to September! 1st Friday of the month at The Hub, 3rd Friday of the month at The Panther Mt. Inn. Suggested instead of $50 trophy sponsors each week business get together and donate $250 per event to provide live music, have better prizes, etc. like the North Creek Car Shows. Email us your opinion on this!
Banners for Town Poles: Designs have been approved by the committee and after approval is given from the Towns (hopefully this week) we will be sending out info on how to get yours up for this summer. 6-8 designs will be available showing activities in our area (snowmobiling, swimming, bicycling, etc) and they will be available for the Towns of Chester, Brant Lake, Pottersville & Adirondack. Cost is $150 (the previous banners lasted 4 years so it’s a good bang for your buck, plus it enhances the look of our towns) and monies are paid directly to Garnet Signs (The TLBA makes no money on this, we just get it organized as a service to our community).
Carol Theatre: What to look forward to this summer: Professor Louie (who performed at Wood Stock!), Battle of the Saxes, a Jazz singer, 10 piece Chicago Tribute group, Feast of Friends (tribute to The Doors), The Beatles and MORE! Call Al at #518-494-5318 for info.
