Combined choral concert approaching
Adding a new twist to area musical presentations, the Senior High Chorus of Bolton Central will be hosting vocalists from Warrensburg High School for Bolton's Fall Concert, set for 7 p.m. Nov. 17 in the Bolton Central gymnasium. All are welcome to attend. On Nov. 3, the chorus members had reverse roles, with the BCS students performing in a concert at Warrensburg Central.
Bolton's choral director James Miller said this week that the joint effort is another way for small schools to give students a more comprehensive performance arts experience.

Awaited Spelling Bee is coming this Sunday
A reminder that the first annual Community Spelling Bee is this Sunday at 1 p.m. The event features adults as spellers, coached by local students - and it is bound to be fun due to the various game-show attributes, including Lifelines, mock bribery of judges and the ability for spectators to buy second chances for misspelled words. The event is expected to raise some urgently needed funds for the library.
Open House set at Conservation Club
The Conservation Club on Edgecomb Pond Road which has for years hosted memorable parties and celebrations of local folks, has been replaced with a brand new building.
Complete with Adirondack-style architectural influences, it was built to replace the deteriorating building which was originally the home to the local Fish & Game Club, which dissolved and donated the structure to the town in the late 1990s.
On Sunday Nov. 14 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., there will be an open house celebration complete with refreshments.
The new building not only has a lot more appeal, but the floor plan has been designed to offer beautiful views of the pond and surrounding scenery. The building, set on 22 acres of property, features a spacious patio with waterside benches - plus a trail along the pond has been developed. All are urged to attend the open house.
