Plans are already underway for two special fund raising events. Both events are sponsored by the Christine Nicole Perry Memorial Trust. Each year, the Perrys and friends work hard to raise money in Chrissys memory to help those in need. Past donations were to the Bolton Scholarship Fund, Warm the Children Fund which purchases winter clothing for Warren and Washington County children, the Guatamela Project, where money is donated to buy supplies and equipment for local doctors and volunteers from Glens Falls Hospital. The first event will be the Annual Bolton Block Party on May 18. The second is a House, Garden and Art Tour on July 12. Tickets for both events are now available at the Lakeside Lodge and Grille. For more information, contact Wauneata Waller at McDonald Professional Real Estate, 644-2015. Bolton Youth Recreation
