- TLBA Benefit Golf Tournament will be held Friday, July 18th at Green Mansions Golf Course AND WE STILL NEED TEAMS! Loon Lake Association has entered a team and it would be fun to have all the lake associations compete (ESSLA? Brant Lake? Friends Lake?), as well as local businesses or individuals as we appreciate the support in one of the few fundraisers the TLBA has each year. Cost is $60 per person and includes cart and barbeque. Shot Gun start at 1:30 with barbeque following. We also need raffle items and someone to help organize this so contact Doug O’Brien at [email protected] to volunteer or register your team. Team monies can be sent to Doug O’Brien – PO Box 720 – Chestertown, NY 12817.

Proceeds from ticket sales are split 50% to the performers, 30% to building owner for rent, electric, etc. and 20% to APAC for future promotions so attendance at these events is appreciated and its great live entertainment in our own backyard! LAURA ROTH, a World-Class Entertainer, Full-Time Professional Singer, Actress and Comedienne, is coming on August 2nd, so mark your calendars. SHAKESPEARE IN THE RAW performances are also scheduled for August, and Steve Smith is organizing a School of Rock for serious music students over the summer with a performance scheduled for August 27th at the theatre (call Steve at #796-3388 to register). A huge Thanks to Linda Muench and JoAnne Nick for organizing and installing the new covers for the theatre seats – a great improvement! And Thanks to building owner Bob Swan for picking up the purchase cost!
- Music on Main Street: Turn out for the Celtic Band was less than hoped for so try to attend these free events as continuation will depend on attendance. Next performance is the Stony Creek Band, August 7: S.L. Smith Band, August 21: Master Cylinders. All concerts are free to the public and will be held on the front lawn of the Chester Town Hall from 6:00 to 8:30 PM.
- ATV RIDE is scheduled for July 26th from 11 AM to 5 PM beginning and ending at the Tin Tee Pee with cook out following. Proceeds from this run will benefit the TLBA. Call Don at #573-4386 for info!
- Chestertown Farmer’s Market : +/- 860 came through the gate July 2nd….Looking forward to a great summer & hoping the rain stays away on Wednesdays!
- Rum Runner’s Weekend is scheduled for September 12 – 14. Next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday July 16 at 5 PM at the Panther Mt. Pub.
- Thanks to Mark Carpenter and Upstate Insurance for organizing Insurance Riders for businesses working with the TLBA by allowing use of their property. He is contacting all of these businesses directly (North Warren School, Tin Tee Pee, Carol Theatre, Jimbo’s etc) for one time signatures which will save us time and energy going around separately for each event – these yearly riders will save the Alliance around $400 a year for insurance.
- The 5th Annual HORICON DAY is scheduled for Saturday August 2nd from 4 PM to Dark with continuous music, Food, Bouncy House, Rock Climbing Wall, Girl Scout Dime Toss, and ending with fireworks at Dusk. Set up time is from 2 PM to 4PM.
- The dead shrubs in front of the Chester Municipal Center were discussed and need to be removed. A letter from the Alliance will be submitted to the Chester Town Board to remove the front row, as they really block view of the monument, and possibly move the 2 trees closest to the monument (in the center walk way) to allow for a better visual for the concerts and for safety reasons at the Farmer’s Market. The unsightliness of the multitude of signs (many hand drawn and for events out of our immediate area) was also discussed, as was the need for an electric community sign similar to the one at the school for posting community events.
- The Historic 1881 Church in Adirondack needs major repair so there will be an ADIRONDACK SHIN-DIG on Saturday, August 9th, to correspond with the 15th annual Adirondack Yard Sale. Shin-Dig starts at 5 PM where they will be closing off Church Street and “dancing the night away”!!!! Adirondack General Store and Mike & Kathy Hill of Home Watch are organizing this event for the community.
- We’d like to remind you all to refer to the community calendar at https://trilakesalliance.com for everything that’s happening in our tri-lake area!
