Cabin Fever Party this Saturday
Gourmet food, warm socializing and dancing to live music is in store at the annual Cabin Fever Party on Saturday March 9.
This free fundraiser for the Bolton Free Library that attracts as many as 150 people to enjoy delectable offerings prepared by local volunteer and professional chefs.
This year, the venue has changed from the Town Highway garage to the Bolton Conservation Club on Edgecomb Pond Road.
To be held from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., the event again has a tropical theme, reflected in the food offerings and attendees are likely to be persuaded to dance the macarena and limbo. Entertainment will be provided by the "Blue Moon" band.
Attendees are asked to bring dishes to share, along with the recipe so it can be included in a community cookbook now being assembled. Coffee, tea, soda and water will be provided. There will be a bonfire, a 50/50 raffle. Donations are accepted at the door.
To offer help, call Library Director Megan Baker at 644-2233.

Ringing of the bells
This year Warren County will be 200 years old — and churches throughout the county will be ringing their bells at 2 p.m. Tuesday March 12 in commemoration of the county’s bicentennial.
Anita Richards from Emmanuel Methodist shared the following information she received from Glens Falls Historian Wayne Wright:
"The significance of ringing the bells goes back to the early 1800s when news needed to be spread fast. The best and easiest way to do that was by ringing all of the church bells. When families who lived further away from the settlements heard the bells, they would send a member of the family to find out what was going on."
