Busy 27th

Steel Magnolias Sat Feb 27th 7pm Town Hall

There Something for everyone in Long Lake on Sat. Feb 27th.

The 4th Geocaching Event is headquartered at the Long Lake Town Hall. Check out for some info. If you don’t know what it is, if you have heard of it, but have never tried it, if you are sitting around the house and watching the tube- force yourself out, call a friend and “go on ovah” to the Town Hall. Upon arrival, check out the displays, then put on your brave adventurous face and call out for Shane Holmes. Shane loves everything outdoors. He snowmobiles, scuba dives, climbs, hikes, hides geocaches, and if there is a fish to be caught, he is there, all year round. He is passionate about outdoor adventure.

Shane Holmes on Long Lake

His infectious enthusiam will not only inspire you to buy a GPS, but he is a great teacher too. He volunteered at the Long Lake Teen Center in the summer of 2009 to teach the kids about geocaching, think fun scavenger hunt (but there is a LOT more to it than that!) Shane has hidden caches for novice participants. Stop into the Town Hall from 9 am to 4pm. Lunch at 12:30 catered by Cybercreek Cafe. $14 adults $10.25 for kids.

Moonlighters Poker Run on Saturday, kicks off from the Newcomb House or the Raquette Lake Tap Room. If you don’t ride a snowmobile, don’t let that stop you. Get the kids, gas up the car and take a scenic drive to each biz and draw a playing card. Don’t know how to play, I didn’t either, but it makes sense once you pick up your $10 entry card (only available at The Raquette Lake Tap Room or the Newcomb House.) Go to each biz listed on your official Moonlighters Poker Run Cardboard card (shout out to Harry Buxton) and draw a playing card. The card is then handwritten on your official Poker Run Tally Card. The more businesses you go to, the better the hand. Once completed you turn it in and the best The best hand wins cash. The Round up at the end of the day is at the Adirondack Hotel featuring live music Eric Peter. The entry fee $10 per card. All ages welcome to play. Call 624-3941 to confirm start time. Some say 10am, posters say noon and so I say… call Jim at the diner and let him tell you (we like to keep people guessing in Long Lake – we refer to that as “whimsy”)

Family Entertainment on Saturday night. Bring the kids to the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts production of Steel Magnolia’s. An emotional journey, laughter, tears and local talent illuminate the Long Lake Town Hall Stage. Join the Arts Center and receive discounted tickets.

Weather report… it is Tuesday morning, the snow is coming tonight and tomorrow (how much… well the weather man is always a mystery) but I was in Glens Falls yesterday and it looks like spring. But in Long Lake, it looks like winter so please let me clarify, we do have snow – not a ton, but enough to ride, snowshoe, x-c ski etc and 3-6 inches are predicted to fall tonight, so I am keeping my fingers crossed. More snowcast updates coming this week.

Hope to see you in Long Lake, Raquette Lake & Newcomb this weekend.

Expect the unexpected!

Town Board Passes Budget for 2010

Last night a noticeably small audience gathered at the Long Lake Town Board Meeting and Continuation of the Public Hearing for Long Lake Water District #1.

The Town Board also approved the purchase of a new groomer for the 2010 snowmobile season, a front loader and approved to move forward on the State mandated SEQR to look into the purchase of property on Tarbell Hill Road from the Nature Conservancy to utilize for our water project and recreational land use.

Once discussion concluded the board voted unanimously to pass the 2010 Budget.

Long Lake continues to embrace growth as a tourist driven economy. The go ahead was made to include the new web design of # in the 2010 budget. Also included was support for two new shoulder season events, Adirondack Quilt Camp, a week of quilting workshops at the Long Lake Central School for an admission price of $230.00. Also planned will be “An Adirondack Affair” – a weekend with soap opera stars and special panel discussions about the state of soap operas today with directors, producers, writers and actors.

Also slated for 2010, the return of the Bed Races, Labor Day Weekend BBQ and cookout, continued partnership with Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts and more Teen Center & Beach Programming, focusing on the youth of the community.

Volunteer spirit soars

To the editor:

The Town of Long Lake would like to thank all the volunteers that helped out this 2009 summer season in Long Lake and Raquette Lake.

Thank you to the Red Hats and Flower Beautification Committee that planted in the barrels around Long Lake and a thank you to the Long Lake Town Board and CAP-21 and the volunteers who helped hang and maintain the hanging flower baskets in Raquette Lake.

Also a huge thank you to all those individuals who helped keep the Long Lake Teen Center at Mt. Sabattis thriving three nights a week during the summer season. Thanks to: Jud Graham, Anita and Jim Brundage, Joe San Antonio from Hamilton County Trailblazers, Steve Signell, Julia Pierce, Molly Irvine, Kelly Brown, Victoria Sandiford, Theresa Taylor, Ceci Bush, Kate Parent, Emily Farr, Kristen Lance and Shane Holmes.

Also thank you to The Cellar, The Long Lake Ladies Kazoo Band, Eunice and Walter Hartmann, Jacquie and Mike Rivette, Mike and Nancy Hosley, Ruth Howe and the Eastern Star and the participants in Long Lake’s Road Rally for their contributions. The generous donations offset the costs of food, snacks and equipment needed to get the Teen Center off the ground.

The teens enjoyed recreational basketball games, tennis, volleyball, foosball, badminton, Pictionary and charades. The kids also made jewelry, learned about geo-caching and had a safe place to go. We look forward to continuing the Teen Center next season.

We appreciate the vibrancy and community spirit of Raquette Lake and Long Lake and are so pleased to have had a successful summer. We certainly look forward to keeping that volunteer spirit alive in the upcoming winter months!

We couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you for your help.
