Bolton ‘Soup Swap’ scheduled
The Town of Bolton Recreation Department has cooked up an event that is sure to warm up both the hearts and stomachs of local residents.
They’ve planned a Soup Swap luncheon, to be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday Feb. 9 the Bolton Conservation Club.
All are welcome to bring their favorite homemade soup for tasting, along with 20 copies of the soup recipe for swapping.
If possible, bring a crock pot to keep the soup warm, otherwise it can be heated in the kitchen. Bread, crackers, and bowls will be provided. Those who need assistance typing, printing or copying their recipe may contact Michelle at 928-3176 or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
‘Heat Our Neighbor’ helps others
In 2005, Bolton Landing Chamber of Commerce officers, aware of soaring heating fuel and utility costs, decided to assist local families facing hardship in meeting their winter home heating bills.
They Chamber then established the "Heat Our Neighbor" fund, with donations collected each year going back to Bolton Landing households in need of assistance with their home energy expenses.
Special acknowledgement goes to the generosity of The Sagamore, Norowal Marina & Chrissy’s Chairs and several other local businesses who have donated to the fund.
But with the winter temperatures now plunging, it is an appropriate time for financially secure individuals and businesses to consider donating towards the fund. To make a much-appreciated donation, send a check to Bolton Chamber of Commerce, PO Box 368, Bolton Landing, NY 12814.
If you are a Bolton resident that is in need of assistance with home heating expenses, stop at the Bolton Chamber office and pick up and application, or call 644-3831

BCS students earn Trip to Placid
The Bolton Student Council sponsored a field trip recently to reward the high school’s top academic achievers.
On Jan. 16, no less than 50 Honor Roll students took a trip to Lake Placid to watch world class athletes train for the World Cup Freestyle Ski Jumping competition.
The training session was concluded with a ride to the top of the tallest jumping tower, followed up by a pizza lunch at the Olympic center’s ice skating rink.
For many years, the BCS Student Council has been hosting incentive trips and events at Bolton to celebrate the hard work and accomplishments of local honor students — and to encourage all students to join the ranks of the Honor Roll.
