Decorated chairs now set around town
Those who stroll through town for the next three weeks will doubtlessly enjoy the Adirondack chairs fancifully painted by area artists and now on display. The annual Chrissy's Chairs fundraiser is under way. Local artists have painted and adorned them creatively, and they will go up for auction at a gala scheduled for Aug. 21, at Sweet Pea Farm Perennials & Art Gallery, 121 Federal Hill Road. The sale of the chairs is to benefit High Peaks Hospice and Palliative Care.
Open flags need to be claimed
A local business owner who is missing an "Open" flag may want to stop by Bolton Town Hall to see if it is theirs. Bolton town employees found two of them in town, and they are seeking to return them to their rightful owners.
Free concert, movie set for park
On Tuesday, Aug. 3, from 7:15 to 9:30 p.m., the rock band Chain Lightning is scheduled to entertain in Rogers Park.
The band is likely to perform their popular array of hits from the 60's, 70's and 80's - so wear your dancing shoes!
Then on Wednesday, Aug. 4, the movie "Coraline" is set to be shown, beginning at 8:30 p.m., also in Rogers Park.
Both events feature free admission.
Bolton was busy this weekend
The myriad of activities in town this last weekend drew thousands of people to Bolton, although the good weather apparently drew many of them out on the lake. We noticed there were many vehicles in town, but the crowds were not as thick as the number of vehicles would indicate.
Leading the weekend's events was the fifth annual Sidewalk Art Show, which featured artists on site with their work displayed in front of businesses throughout town. Sweet Pea Farm Perennials & Art Gallery hosted an exhibition reception July 23 for painter Marianne Kuhn and her prismatic realism landscapes and still lifes.
All three days, the Bolton Library held its annual Huge Book Sale, and it lived up to its name.
On July 24, the Lake George Land Conservancy held its Field Day & Barbecue Lunch, including themed hikes for those seeking an excursion.
Saturday night brought the ever-popular Las Vegas Night fundraiser at the Bolton Firehouse with their games of chance for adults. Also on Saturday, a concert by Resonanz at the Marcella Sembrich Opera Museum attracted those musically inclined.
