*An Adirondack Woof Stock: Great weekend – everyone in attendance had a grin on their face, including the dogs, and our volunteers and committee members were excellent! Numbers were a bit off this year, it was raining in Glens Falls, Albany & North Creek, but not in Chestertown, so that could have contributed to the low attendance but we’re making plans for next year and will get the date out as soon as it’s decided!
*Woodstock Revisited on the Mill Pond: Again, a fun night and great success… low numbers compared to past years but fun for locals and visitors alike and a good shoulder event for our area!
*Town Banners: Up and looking good! If you missed the original order, contact Garnet signs directly to get yours designed and given to the appropriate Town for hanging.
*Chestertown Farmer’s Market: Opening Day June 14th with a full field!!!! Runs through Mid-Sept. from 10AM – 2PM every Wednesday! Some new vendors and most of our old, so make sure you stop by! Also have a salad vendor and Vashti’s Kitchen (Caribbean ) for lunch specials as well as Moby Dick, High Noon, Oleyoke Donuts and Dickensen’s crepes so hope to see you there!
*Car Hops & Octoberfest: There has been interest in both of these events but we need others to step up and take the lead…. Restaurants and local businesses would benefit from either of these events and the TLCA would be willing to help, possibly along with the Chamber of Commerce, but it’s time for others to get involved. German food, beer and bands at all establishments on a fall weekend would be great, so anyone willing to Chair and organize a committee, etc…. let us know
