'Fives' converge in multiple celebration
Ed and Carol Sheridan are celebrating Ed's 65th birthday, Carol's 55th birthday and their 25th anniversary - all occurring this year. There was no better way to do it, undoubtedly, than with a huge bash at Maranville's Service Station.
The party Sept. 12 at Maranville's was well attended despite the rainy weather and it also didn't stop anyone from dancing to the music of the Stony Creek Band. It was a wonderful time with great friends and food. Congratulations, to Ed and Carol on their multiple anniversaries.
Bolton Monday Golf League
The Bolton Monday Golf League celebrated the end of the season with a banquet Sept. 13 at Michael Arthur's Restaurant. An average of 50 players enjoyed the Sagamore Golf Course through the summer on Monday afternoons.
At the season wrap-up banquet, trophies were presented to Joanie Baldwin for Good Sportsmanship and to Herb Koster for his Hole-in-One on the third hole. Complete with prizes, fun was had by all. Thanks to Bill Bashant for organizing this summer long league, to the Sagamore Resort for making it all possible and Art Baker for allowing Michael Arthur's Restaurant to be their 19th hole each week.

A good year for pumpkins
Bolton Landing resident and horticulture enthusiast Alice Coon has planted her own vegetable garden, and she said this week this year has been the best for vegetable production that she can remember.
Although she has many hobbies and interests, she said having her own garden is her favorite. She usually doesn't plant pumpkins but this year she thought she would give it a try. The results were a great surprise to her. Most of the pumpkins have been spoken for, but if anyone wants some seeds to plant, she said she will have plenty.
Alice offered some advice this week for gardeners.
"Don't plant anything you can't carry out of your garden," she said with a smile. Some of her pumpkins were at least 50 pounds, requiring help moving them, we hear.
