Adirondack A&E e-News # 399

Did you know….

A couple of folks let us know they did not receive their Friday edition of the ADK A&E e-News. We’re looking into that with the email software people but it twigged us to make sure subscribers know they can see previous issues of the ADK A&E e-News on the website HERE.

At the upper left, see “E-News Archives.” Clicking there takes you to all previous issues of ADK A&E.

There’s even a search bar if you want to see the story about whatever again.

All the previous issues are there, which means you never have to miss an issue—plus, it easy to locate that story you wanted to reread.

As always, just let us know if you have any questions.

Survive & Thrive in the Wild with Melanie Sawyer

Saturday, June 22, 2024,10 am – 3 pm

Melanie Sawyer is part of the History Channels Season 10 ALONE Show. She and 9 other survivalists were dropped in the sub-arctic tundra of the Canadian Shield – home to black bear, wolves, and moose – enduring bone-chilling temperatures to last as long as they could with just ten survival items and enough camera gear to self-document their experience. Her knowledge of history during the 1700’s here in the Adirondacks and wild foraging skills helped her survive when others could not. She will share her knowledge of surviving in the wilderness with workshop participants.

Internationally Renowned Lake Placid, NY Horse Shows

Lake Placid Horse Show, June 25 – June 30
I Love New York Horse Show, July 2 – 7

Come experience two of the nation’s most prominent equestrian events and watch as world-class riders and horses vie for more than $550,000 in prize money and awards in championship Hunter and Jumper competitions.

The Lake Placid and I Love New York Horse Shows bring nearly 1,000 horses to Lake Placid for three weeks at the end of June each year. A veritable city of tents is erected early in June in anticipation of the events. The brightly striped tents house the millions of dollars worth of horses their owners bring to these shows annually. The grounds are abuzz with golf carts and Welsh Corgi dogs. These little dogs seem to be the breed of choice at farms in the show jumping world and they’re right at home at the show grounds, many of them roaming around visiting with everyone.

The action begins at 8 am each show day, with classes running simultaneously in five separate rings until approximately 5 pm.
