Thank you to the Town of Webb, Town of Inlet, Town of Long Lake, Town of Indian Lake, the Speculator Chamber of Commerce and Wells for recruiting sponsors, making lunch arrangements and picking up the bags of trash on the sides of the road left by the volunteers.

Community Pride Day gives everyone a chance to take pride in this beautiful area we call home.  We encourage everyone to continue this effort throughout the year and we’ll gather again the first Wednesday in May 2020.

BMI & BFC & a couple others things

E-mail sent by Inlet Information Office, Friday, May 10th, 2019 @ 11:07am

Nice turnout for our Spring Social last night!  Thank you all who were able to attend, and thank you to Mark, Susan, Dave, Craig, Sara and the rest of the BMI staff who made made us feel welcome and fed us some delicious food!  

My full notes from the meeting will be sent out some other time.  I just want to take a couple minutes to mention a few things for those who were not able to join us.

The 24th running of the Black Fly Challenge will take place on Saturday, June 8.  The race ends in Inlet this year with an always fun post race party at Fern Park where there will be live music by Simple Props, IVES will be selling food and a beer trailer featuring Black Fly IPA from the Blue Line Brewery.  We will also have Gristmill Distillery there with samples of their Black Fly Bourbon!  We are expecting close to 1,000 racers that day along with their family and friends.  Should be a really good time.

I am looking for volunteers to help with the event.  I need people for:

  • two-hour shifts on Friday, June 7 from 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m helping with registration & packet pickup at Pedals & Petals.
  • parking & directing traffic at Fern Park 11:00-2:00.
  • keeping the Finish Line clear of stragglers and wandering spectators 12:00-3:30.
  • run between the finish line & the stage with race updates 12:00-3:30.
  • man the fruit & water table 11:30-1:30 & 1:30-3:30.
  • sell merchandise 12:00-4:00 (can be partial shift.)
  • sell raffle tickets - wandering 12:00-4:00 (can also be partial shift.)

We are also working on updating the annual outdoor guide that this race puts out.  The On the Fly Outdoor Guide is being transformed into a full-color glossy magazine, which is going to look great on shelves and will still have a digital version online all year long.  To place an ad contact Adele or Dave or click here for more information.

For anyone who does not know, Mulligan's at the Inlet Golf Club will be run by the owners of Screamen Eagle.  The Double Eagle Bar & Grill will open on Monday, May 13!  Stop by 11:00-2:00 to welcome them and see what's new!

Mark you calendar for Saturday, June 22 for a picnic at the Inlet Common School.  All are welcome!  You all know how I feel about the school closing - It Sucks! - but let's not let it close sadly and quietly.  Details are still being worked out, but bring your children, your friends, your parents, your aunts, uncles, cousins, ... cause we all know someone who was educated in our school, who made friends in our school, who taught in our school, who went above and beyonds for the students in our school.  June 25, which is their last day of school, is going to be a sad, sad day for this town.  So let's have a party on the 22nd and try to leave with a happier time.  Their last Graduation/Spring Concert is Monday, June 24 at the St. Anthony's Community Hall.  Hope to see many of you there as well!

Aimee VanWie talked about the CTS Van and their need for drivers in the Inlet area.  She stated that, for insurance reasons, they prefer drivers under the age of 65.  Drivers do not have to be committed to take every request and can turn down any run that they are not able to take.  Anyone intersted in signing up to be a driver can contact Cindy Beckley at 315-369-2664 or

Ted Christodaro stated that he is continuing to look into banners for the poles around town.  The group had a lengthy discussion on possible designs, number of banners, etc.  Anyone intersted in working on this is invited to contact Ted or Adele.

Adele Burnett shared a couple designs for a new sign at the entrance to Fern Park.  The Fern Park Committee hopes to be able to install a new sign before summer begins.

Hope you are getting ready for a great summer!  We had a great day cleaning up the streets in Inlet & Eagle Bay yesterday.  I also know that cleaning took place in Raquette Lake and Indian Lake.  Old Forge and Thendara postponed until next Wednesday.  Waiting to hear from Blue Mountain Lake, Long Lake, Speculator & Wells.

This Sunday is not only Cinco de Mayo, but also Fire & Spice at Seventh Lake House and Screamen Eagle's Customer Appreciation Party!  Hope you get a chance to stop in one or both of these fun events.

Attached is a flyer for Frisky Otter's event coming up.  Please print, hang & share.

I also have posters in my office for the Great Adirondack Garage Sale that were printed by ROOST, if anyone would like some to hang, let me know.

And I have extra Community Pride Day shirts.  If you sponsored the event, but were not able to clean, stop by my office and I will make sure you get a shirt.

Community Pride Day - May 1

E-mail sent by Inlet Information Office, Monday, April 29th, 2019 @ 7:12pm

Unpredictable weather always raises the question of “will the event be canceled/rescheduled?”  As always, I leave that decision up to each town to decide what is best for them.  In Inlet & Eagle Bay, we will clean up, rain or shine.  

Obviously, if it is pouring and/or lightning, we will not be sending people out, but lunch has been arranged and the Inlet School children have made arrangements to join us and we can do an indoor project with them if necessary.  We would still hand out shirts to all, still meet for lunch and hopefully get the streets cleaned up on our own, making sure the trash makes it to the transfer station ourselves. 

If you have any questions, let me know.

Food Vendor Needed for "Arts in the Park"

E-mail sent by Inlet Information Office, Thursday, April 11th, 2019 @ 9:44am

The Kids For Utica will not be able to provide food during this year's "Arts in the Park" at Arrowhead Park on July 20-21.  They have been offering lunch items like burgers, hot dogs, sausage sandwiches, wraps, etc. for many years, but because of an unavoidable circumstance will be unable to join us this year.

If there is a local not-for-profit willing and able to sell food during the event, please contact me as soon as possible.  If there are no local not-for-profits able to do this, then we would welcome a local business to set up in the park and sell food during that Saturday & Sunday in July.  If no local business and no local not-for-profit, we will then invite a close-by food truck to the event.

Having food available during this event encourages visitors to stay in town longer, and helps the vendors who are not able to get away from their booths for more than 15 minutes at a time.  These vendors stay for the weekend, spending money at local accommodations, restaurants and shops.

Any local not-for-profit or local business able to sell food in Arrowhead Park ( the event is open 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. on July 20 and 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. on July 21) please contact Adele as soon as possible

Thank you!
