Things to Do to Keep you Busy

COMMUNITY UNITY BEAR-DECORATING

Calling all Long Lakers, the Town of Long Lake Parks and Recreation Department is hosting a community “unity” event and encouraging any home who would like, to put a decorated cutout of a Long Lake bear in their front yard. The cutouts are available for FREE at the Geiger arena, beginning on Friday May 8th. The idea is to have as many homes as possible decorate a bear and place it in their yard by May 22nd.

Parks & Rec Department will go around about 4PM on May 22nd and take pictures of the different decorations. This is not a contest, just a way to bring back some sense of unity in this trying time of social isolation and quarantine.


We ask anyone going to pick up their cutout to follow all CDC guidelines regarding social distancing, sanitation, and masks. Please email longlakeevents@gmail.com to sign up so we don’t miss any decorations, or if you have any questions.

The judging was to consider each individual appetizer with overall impression, presentation, uniqueness, combination of flavors, pleasing to the palate and originality.

The Long Lake Diner/Owls Head Pub served each dish individually with a sorbet palate cleanser offered between each selection.  Dishes included Chicken Sausage Chili cup in a hand-molded tortilla, Bacon Bourbon BBQ, Battered and Breaded Pork Ribs  and Fried Green Tomatoes.

Pendragon Presents Athena in Long Lake October 24, 2019

Photos from Athena

Athena, the critically acclaimed comedy by Gracie Gardner, will be making a tour stop in Long Lake with performance at the Long Lake Town Hall, 1204 Main Street on Thursday, October 24, 2019 at 7pm. Athena, directed by Pendragon’s Artistic Director, Kimberley Bouchard and featuring Rachel Kemp and Cammie Marshall, is a coming of age comedy about the rivalry and friendship of two teenage athletes. Mary Wallace and Athena are brave, and seventeen, and fencers, and training for the Junior Olympics. They practice together, they compete against each other, they spend their lives together and they wish they were friends.
 
First performed in 2018, Athena, is a New York Times Critic’s Pick: “A deadly serious comedy about ambition, success, and owning your superiority. In it’s delicate ferocity, it shows a playwright who is full throttle funny and wise beyond her years”  The play is deemed “wily and entertaining.” by the Village Voice.
 
According to director Bouchard, she was first attracted to the play by the title, Athena.  “Athena is one of the goddesses I have been fascinated by since I was a child.  Born from the head of a male-god! The goddess of War and Wisdom and the Arts! Wow!  What a super-woman!  
After reading the play Athena I was enthralled by the story of these two young women athletes as they discover their power, their strength and their vulnerabilities.  As a young woman growing up before Title IX, I was an athlete with few opportunities to engage in competitive sports. During high school, I took up fencing at the local college with a girlfriend who felt the same lack in her life.  Fencing was our outlet for a yearning we had to be capable, strong and legitimately competitive. We loved it.”
 
Actors Rachel Kemp and Cammie Marshall play highly competitive teen fencers and have been training to fence for the roles with champion fencer, Viveka Fox. Fox is head coach of the Vermont Fencing Alliance, a former all-Ivy fencer and North Atlantic women’s foil champion and, in 2019, qualified to represent the US in age 50-60 womens foil at Veteran World Championships for the second time.
 
According to Kemp, who plays the title role in Athena, “Learning to fence has been so much fun and challenging. Working with Viveka Fox has been great. We’ve had a unique challenge in choreographing the fights because we’ve had to work backwards. We know who is supposed to score a point when, so it’s been a matter of silent communication to signal when that person is ready to hit, and when the other person is ready to be hit.  As a dancer, I’ve appreciated that fencing takes quick footwork and a lot of lunging. Our thighs were sore for days!”  
 
Athena is playing at the Long Lake Town Hall, Thursday, October 24, 2019 at 7pm.  Tickets for the Long Lake performance are $8 and Long Lake Central School students are free. The Long Lake CTSO will be selling refreshments at intermission. Pre-sale tickets are available at the Long Lake Parks and Recreation Offices at 1130 Deerland Road, cash or check, payable to the Town of Long Lake.

Good Acoustics Perform Saturday March 3rd

The Town of Long Lake Parks and Recreation Department is hosting a tribute concert to James Taylor and Simon and Garfunkel on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at 7:30p.m. at the Long Lake Town Hall featuring the Massachusetts Trio, Good Acoustics.

Good Acoustics features musicians Mike Smith, Dave Fazio, and Bill DeSanty. They have been performing professionally all over the east coast for over three decades. This acoustic-rock trio is well known in the Western Massachusetts area for their emphasis on strong vocals, with all three members contributing as lead singers and each contributing to the three-part harmonies found in the songs they perform.

It has been nearly 45 years since Simon & Garfunkel first split at the height of their fame in 1970 that has motivated Mike and Dave to pursue their passion by paying tribute to this incredible duo, the two bring over 25 years of singing two-part harmonies and excellent musicianship to the stage.

Lead singing drummer Bill DeSanty is the featured vocalist in the James Taylor tribute set comprised of live and studio versions of J.T. classics. His spot-on rendition will keep you mesmerized throughout his entire performance.

The concert event will feature two sets.  First up is a tribute to James Taylor.  James Taylor continues to have a career spanning multiple decades, two continents, a battle with depression, heroin addiction and facing turbulent times in American history. James Taylor’s memorable and timeless songbooks and performance will feature hits ranging from Sweet Baby James, Fire and Rain, Mexico, You’ve Got a Friend and many more.

The second half of the tribute concert will feature Simon and Garfunkel’s hits reflective of a time when the prevailing vibe at the tail end of the Sixties was anything but peaceful or loving.  It was a time defined by Vietnam, the draft lottery, civil rights movement, and the Nixon era. Look for songs from Bridge Over Troubled Water, hits from The Graduate, America and more to be featured.

This is a general admission event.  Tickets for adults are $10, kids are $5. Tickets can be reserved by phone by calling 518-624-3077.  Cash or Check only to Town of Long Lake, PO Box 496, Long Lake, NY 12847.  This 125 seat space is one of the oldest buildings in the community and doubles as a meeting space and theatrical venue.  Please visit www.mylonglake.com for more info about lodging, dining, shopping and upcoming events.

Plenty of activities in the Long Lake area February 9th & 10th, 2018. Visitors and residents in the area can enjoy an Ice Fishing Derby and a Poker Run.
