Fishing Contest Update. We have decided to cancel the fishing contest due to the safety of the ice. An ad will be placed in the Pennysaver.
Summer Concert Series: Booking is currently underway. Waiting to firm up additional musicians shortly. We would like to keep the time the same (6:30-8:30) as it worked out well last year. July 7th thru August 18th. Mike, the MC will supply prizes.
Maple Festival: Plans are in full swing for this year’s Maple Festival to be held April 30-May 1st. If you would like to volunteer there is going to be a meeting Wednesday the 17th at the Hadley Community Center.
Other Business: Rand Condell from the Adirondack Folk School spoke to us about the school and we shared ideas about promoting it. He informed us that Hadley – Luzerne Residents receive a 10% discount on classes. We also discussed the idea of having some simple mid-week classes to attract a local crowd. There is going to be a benefit dinner at the Brook Tavern in Saratoga. This event will be held Sunday February 28th from 4:00 – close. 50% of the proceeds will go to the Folk School.
We are still looking into folders for the Chamber to give to new Businesses/Residents. We would like to fill them with area information, possibly discounts from local businesses. We are looking into Chamber stickers/decals for members.
New membership application is on the website – if you know anyone that would like to join the chamber let them know.
There is going to be a Soup-Sips-and Sweets at Some Favorite Things in Hadley at 6:00 on February 18th. Call 696-9950 for reservations.
