Tuesday, June 3rd turned out to be a good weather day for the dinner cruise on Lake George. It was sunny, warm and breezy as we boarded the steamship Lac Du Sacrament. The lake remained calm, as a buffet dinner was enjoyed. There were choices of cold roast beef, ham, dishes of fruit, vegetables, greens, breads, and hot cream of broccoli soup, and grilled cod. Apple tart, whipped cream, coffee, tea or milk were also available. Our guide played the keyboard, alternating with pointing out homes on “Millionaires’ Row”, giving the history of each place along with a history of Lake George’s development as a tourist destination. The side of the lake owned by New York State is part of Adirondack Park, and is designated to be forever wild. After the cruise we left for the bus tour of Prospect Mountain Park, stopping at three lookout points. Very large rocks were used as guard rails instead of the type usually used. The group elected to view the scenery and lake from the bus at the two lower lookouts. Most left the bus at the lookout at the very top; the view was quite impressive. We were able to see the lake and into part of Vermont. A very enjoyable trip. Thanks, Gerald.
The next meeting, on Thursday, July 17th, will be a picnic at the home of Sandy Wynn on Wolf Hollow Road (off Cabin Hill). To sign up for the picnic, call Sandy at 676-9463 or Mary Tucker at 676-4508. All seniors welcome. ~
