Attached is a brochure for this weekend's Fall Festival.
As you will notice, we had bad luck with food vendors this year and the only things for sale right now are kettle corn & pretzels. The Youth Commission will be there Saturday only selling popcorn and there will be someone selling coffee and scones on Sunday only. NO FOOD TRUCKS! We had 2, and they both had to pull out for reasons of their own. I have reached out to a few local not-for-profits with no luck and I have contacted over a dozen food trucks out of Utica. I even had two locals who each thought they might be able to pull something together if they found help, but they did not connect soon enough. There is one Utica truck who might be able to show up and sell after 1:00 on Saturday, but not at all on Sunday....
Unfortunately, people will not hang out at Fern Park as long as I and the vendors would like, but maybe they will find food in Inlet before they leave town. The vendors are not going to be happy. Many of them are not able to leave their booth for more than 10 minutes at a time, and will not be able to go anywhere for food. And if the vendors are unhappy, the event is unhappy. If anyone has ideas, let me know. Maybe one of the restaurants might want to send staff to take orders and bring the vendors takeout?
We had a really good meeting this morning. In attendance was Jane Slack, Reggie Chambers, Danicia Nerschook, Adele Burnett, Charlie Frey, Mark Mayer, Lynn Durkin and Paul Chambers. We are looking forward to continue some of the discussions tomorrow (Friday) night at Screamen Eagle starting around 6:30 p.m. Some things to talk about:
October 3, 2017 will be an IABA/Bag Stuffing for Adirondack Kids Day Meeting at 6:00 p.m. in the Senior Room of Inlet Town Hall.
200 bags will be stuffed for Adirondack Kids Day. If you have anything you would like to put in the bags for the kids, please drop it off at the Inlet Information Office prior to 6:00 p.m. on October 3rd.
Adirondack Ice Bowl - Lots to talk about!
Regular monthly meetings will continue to be the first Tuesday of the month.
I took notes, and I will take more notes tomorrow night, then I will share with everyone.
Hope to see you tomorrow!
