Chambers to offer presentation
Warrensburgh Historical Society member Delbert Chambers of Thurman, who created the architecture exhibit at the Warrensburgh Museum of Local History, will be giving a lecture soon in Lake Luzerne.
Chambers will be presenting an illustrated talk entitled “The Evolution of Architectural Style in the Adirondack Region" at 7 p.m. Thursday March 21 at the Kinnear Museum, 52 Main St., Lake Luzerne. We hear it’s bound to be an interesting and very informative talk.
Welcome back, Bear Cupboard
We welcome the Bear Cupboard back to Warrensburg where it was launched years ago.
Until 2011, the Bear Cupboard was on Lower Main St., but the enterprise, owned and operated by Kelly Irish, moved out after the building was sold.
Irish moved the Bear Cupboard to Queensbury in April 2012 to introduce her home furnishings to a wider audience. But several weeks ago, she brought her store back home to Warrensburg, where it is now welcoming customers at 3734 Main St.
The Bear Cupboard features many unique items from jewelry to bed frames. Its merchandise is fun, fashionable, and unique.
Much of the merchandise Irish carries is created by local artisans. For details, call her at 504-8017 or find her on Facebook or at: thebearcupboard.com.
