Subway & workers help others
The Bolton Health Committee representatives have expressed thanks to the owner of Bolton Subway shop, Jeffrey Tennent and his store’s employees.
Subway closed for the season Sept. 12 and Tennent donated all his profits for that day — and the employees donated their tips — to the Bolton Health Committee for their ongoing assistance to local families in need. Reacting to the $600 donation, Health Committee member Sue Wilson commented that Subway’s donation reflects the charitable and caring character of the residents of Bolton.
“To be sure, Bolton is one of the most beautiful spots on earth, but its real beauty is its people,” she said.
The Bolton Health Committee, has for 81 years attended to the varied needs of local individuals and families.
In a confidential manner, the committee has been assisting with food, fuel, clothing, and emergency funds for families facing emergencies, financial shortfalls, disasters, and special health care needs.
Observe the moon
The Lake George Land Conservancy is hosting its second annual event to participate in International Observe the Moon Night. This year, it will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at Up Yonda Environmental Farm north of Bolton Landing, just south of county Rte. 11. The Conservancy is currently the only host site for the Moon Night in the Adirondacks.
International Observe the Moon Night was established for lunar scientists, educators, amateur astronomers, space enthusiasts, and the public to come together to enjoy lunar observations annually. This free Conservancy event includes a presentation and observations by lunar scientist Rosemary Millham.
The program, which includes an initial indoor presentation with simulated lunar impacts, followed by outdoor observations, concludes with light refreshments. Participants may wish to bring a camera and their own binoculars or a telescope. Attendees should wear sturdy shoes and dress for cool temperatures. Registration is not required but is appreciated. Call 644-9673 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
