Mark your calendars and start looking forward to another Saranac summer.
There’s something for everyone! Whet your appetites with a preview of what’s on tap.

July 22 – Historic Camp Tour – La Jeunesse (1916-1954) was an elite boys’ camp which is now in private hands. The former infirmary has been transformed into a stunning retreat where owners Chuck and Joan Bechtel will host us from 4-6 p.m. A tour and talk will be followed by a wine and cheese reception.

July 25 – Paddle ‘n Picnic – USLA Board member Jeff Dickson will lead this adventure. Bring your canoe or kayak and count on a memorable outing. Rain date: July 26. Location TBD.

Early August – A Day at the Races – And they’re off!! Join USLA friends for a trip to one of the oldest sporting venues in the country, the beautiful Saratoga race track. Pick your favorites and savor the pageantry.

August 7 – Poetry and Music Salon Gathering – Three generations of the Laird-Creech family will entertain. Antonia Laird, a past Poet Laureate of Delaware, will share some of her poems and her son-in-law and granddaughter will treat guests to the sweet sounds of guitar and celtic harp. Late afternoon.

August 18 – A History of the Bartlett Carry Club with Fran Yardley – Fran will reveal the lore that has enthralled AARCH tour participants year after year and tell how she and her first husband, Jay, saved the iconic property which is now a nine-family cooperative. Hosted at the Bartlett Carry Club – 3-5 p.m.

Look for more specific details about all events, including registration information, in the May Mailboat.
