ON-LINE PAYMENTS IN EAST GREENBUSH Toni Murphy, Receiver of Taxes in East Greenbush, is taking steps to implement another expanded service to residents in her office. The long-time incumbent announced that she wants to push her operation further into the current computer/ information age with a new streamlined payment option. “I have asked members of the Town Board to authorize the acceptance of electronic payments or ‘E-checks’ for Town Taxes”, she said. “This is a common practice in business venues today, and many people handle most of their household expenses this way already.” Murphy has spoken with her software providers, and has assured Town Leaders that this process is consistent with the existing receipt and report programming in the system. A resolution is being prepared for consideration at the next Town Board Meeting on September 21st that would adopt Mrs. Murphy’s proposal. Throughout her years of service, Toni Murphy has repeatedly implemented new ideas in her office to improve work flow, and provide improved service to residents. Under her direction, the Office was converted from antiquated paper processing to computerized operations. Since then, she has improved staffing and expanded office coverage to be more available to residents. Most recently, Toni made it possible for people to use credit cards in making their payments. Toni looks forward to the Town Board’s prompt approval of her proposal and its immediate implementation.

Dear neighbors, Our large acreage by the Hudson River was severely damaged and flooded by ‘IRENE’. The storm destroyed our corn crop at a crucial time of year. Two tractors were also lost. Although devastating, we count our blessings that our homes and families are safe, and our greenhouses survived. Our farm stand is up and running. PLEASE stop in and see our great selection of tomatoes, peppers and winter squash. Come and see our large, colorful display of mums. You’re sure to find the perfect colors to enhance your curb appeal. We would like to say a big THANK YOU to friends and neighbors and ESPECIALLY to the many small farm owners in the area whose kindness and generosity will not be forgotten. ~Sincerely, Chris Webb and family

KEITH LANGLEY SEEKING ELECTION AS EAST GREENBUSH SUPERVISOR Keith Langley is seeking election as East Greenbush Supervisor, saying he will use his decades of private business experience to bring new leadership and make town government more responsive and efficient for taxpayers. Langley has gained valuable business experience as a project superintendent and safety coordinator with Rifenburg Contracting Corporation, helping guide some of the biggest construction projects to successful completion. Langley said he has spoken to many taxpayers concerned about high town taxes and water rates and the record-high town debt that caused the town’s bond rating to be reduced to junk bond status. “All across town, residents and taxpayers are worried about the direction of town government. They are worried about the high town tax burden and quality of life in their neighborhoods,” said Langley. “As Supervisor, I will make sure taxpayers are not forgotten and that residents received the services they need in the most efficient, effective way possible,” said Langley. Langley is seeking election, along with other members of the Hometown Leadership Team, including Ed Gilbert for Town Council, Dan Fiacco for Town Council and Corine Sheldon for Receiver of Taxes. The team has been endorsed by the Republican, Conservative and Independence parties and announced an eight-point platform including: • Fiscally responsible policies that control taxes and protect taxpayers • Reduction of the town’s record-high debt • Restoration of the town’s credit rating • Compliance with the state tax cap • Independent audit of town finances • Plan to revitalize Routes 9 & 20 • More citizen involvement in town government • Honest, open and responsive government for all Keith gained new perspective after a 1990 accident left his wife Lois paralyzed. Keith devoted himself to caring for his wife, and following the accident, the couple became parents to a son and a daughter and are active members of the community. “My life experiences have prepared me to serve the town and lead East Greenbush in a competent and compassionate manner. I look forward to the chance to give back to a town I have been proud to call home my entire life,” said Langley.

Flora served on the Sand Lake Town Board for nine years and represented the Town on the Rensselaer County Legislature for four years. As a longtime proponent of open and citizen-focused government, Fasoldt will keep the residents of Sand Lake better informed of their town government and will again publish her monthly For Your Information articles in The Advertiser. With a strong resume in public service, Fasoldt will perform the duties of the Supervisor’s Office at a considerable cost savings to the Town. Fasoldt will be a hands-on and accessible leader, while pledging to reduce the Supervisor’s salary by giving back nearly $15,000 annually. “Now more than ever, people have a right to expect value and service from their elected officials. Leaders must be hard working and innovative and simply do more with less.” Fasoldt’s platform, along with candidates Mark Cioffi and John Sniezyk, calls for fiscal responsibility that will efficiently deliver services and a strong partnership between local businesses and the community. She seeks to encourage positive economic development and open government that will bring a new era of professionalism and civility to our residents. Fasoldt looks forward to joining fellow Democrat Chris Kronau on the Board. “I plan to keep the townspeople of Sand Lake well informed and engaged and look forward to once again being a strong voice and advocate for Sand Lake.” Fasoldt believes that elected officials should put the Town of Sand Lake 1st and taxpayers should expect more.

“Devoted to pets and those who love them...”


L - R: Sue Mangold talks with program participants Erin Levesque, Nancy Scott, and Toni Lettrick at the Goff Organic Garden in East Greenbush

At my recent shopping stop at the Goff Farmer’s Market, I enjoyed an informative visit with several of the young volunteers and was impressed with their knowledge and dedication. Toni Lettrick told how she and her friends show up three days tending to the plots, planting, weeding, cultivating, and harvesting. Erin Levesque explained how not all tomatoes turn red when they are ripe, and named some different varieties. Nancy Scott who directs the Goff Organic Garden Program pointed out that even though the market is closing for the season, there is still plenty of fruit on the vine. She said the students will still put in time and that the harvest will be shared with local food pantries and programs for the needy. It’s obvious that there are strong roots being grown around that little red barn. One mother who was there happily pointed out the workers were more likely to try different vegetables, and tune in to good nutrition. Programs like this plant the seeds of good citizenship and promote positive growth for the future of our community. ~Submitted by Sue Mangold

Fiacco said he plans on using his years of private sector experience to help protect town taxpayers and reduce the town’s record-high debt. Fiacco said he wants to ensure needed town services are protected and quality of life and neighborhoods safeguarded. “East Greenbush is a great town to live and raise a family. To ensure a great future for our town, and one that taxpayers can afford, we need new, responsible leadership and new ideas,” said Fiacco. “As a resident and taxpayer, I have become concerned over town finances and the amount of debt facing our town. With fiscally responsible policies, we can begin to relieve some of the burden on taxpayers,” said Fiacco. Fiacco is seeking election, along with other members of the Hometown Leadership Team, including Keith Langley for Supervisor, Ed Gilbert for Town Council and Corine Sheldon for Receiver of Taxes. The team has been endorsed by the Republican, Conservative and Independence parties and announced an eight-point platform including: • Fiscally responsible policies that control taxes and protect taxpayers • Reduction of the town’s record-high debt • Restoration of the town’s credit rating • Compliance with the state tax cap • Independent audit of town finances • Plan to revitalize Routes 9 & 20 • More citizen involvement in town government • Honest, open and responsive government for all Fiacco is owner of a successful building and contracting company, and has helped improve or build many homes and businesses throughout East Greenbush.

Now is my opportunity to give back to a town that my family and I love, and help ensure a better future for everyone,” said Fiacco.

SCHODACK RESIDENTS NEED NOT APPLY Letter to the Editor: At its July meeting, the Schodack Town Board appointed James Church, formerly an operative for Joe Bruno, to our Planning Board. The vacancy on the Board arose because the previous month, Peter Goold, Planning Board Chairman of over twenty-five years, was appointed acting town assessor to replace Sharon Martin, elevated to the County Assessor ’s office. Goold’s appointment had been rumored since he lost his patronage job with the state. While Supervisor Dowds said the position was posted and several candidates were interviewed, I believe it was a foregone conclusion that Goold would get the job. I personally like Mr. Goold. It’s the process by which both he and Mr. Church got their positions that I find deeply troubling. Behind closed doors, in a political game of musical chairs, the powers that be decided who they wanted to fill the Planning Board vacancy - someone who would fall into perfect lock step with the ruling majority. There was no town-wide search for the most qualified candidate to fill the seat. So it was also with the newest Town Councilman, Mike Kenney, appointed in July, 2010 to the Board at a meeting that didn’t even include his appointment on its agenda. Mr. Kenney’s qualifications for the job? He’s County Legislator Alex Shannon’s nephew - actual nepotism at work. The way these appointments are made begs the question: Is it good for the people of Schodack? Can anyone be truly independent of those who gave them their positions in this uncontested manner? The tax burden on residents speaks for itself: decisions that directly affect our lives are made behind closed doors with virtually no public discussion. Yet somehow, when the vote comes up for one spending measure after another, or the appointment of friends and relatives to town positions, Town Board members unanimously rubber-stamp each and every item on the agenda. With no one to question any expenditure, residents see their taxes go ever-higher. With zero debate, poor decisions are made. It will only stop when more of us question what is going on and hold our elected officials accountable. ~Linda Underwood, Castleton Editors Note: The above article does not necessarily reflect the opinion or endorsement of the Editor or the Staff of THE ADVERTISER, and for all intents and purposes is impossible to verify the truth and veracity of its contents.

Sand Lake Center for the Arts will host a staged reading of The Triangle Factory Fire Project, written by Christopher Piehler in collaboration with Scott Alan Evans and directed by Deborah Dorman, of Delmar, NY on Sat., Sept. 17th, at 8pm; and Sun., Sept. 18th, at 2:30pm. Tickets are $10, under 18/$8. In 1911, in New York City, a tragic fire in a shirt waist factory killed more than a hundred people, most of them young women, and mostly due to a locked door. Many safety reforms were a result of this event, which gives it special significance. It is also hauntingly reminiscent, at times, of the events of 9/11. Please join us to commemorate the 100th anniversary of this moment in history. For reservations, call 518-674-2007 or visit The SLCA is located at 2880 NY 43, Averill Park, NY, only 15 min. east of Albany with plenty of parking.

A SECOND CHANCE AT LIFE Letter to the Editor: As a woman longing to become a first-time mother, I felt I had to address the concerns raised by Katherine Imbierowics in her recent Letter to the Editor. In her letter, Katherine says, if she became pregnant at a young age, she would “like to do anything to save my future, my career, and live a happy and easy life.” I would simply suggest that perhaps there are other ways to handle what is indeed a tragic and all too common problem, without necessarily resorting to an abortion. Perhaps a better way to give a young mother a chance at a good life is for the community and schools to develop programs to offer emotional and social support for the mother and baby, rather than leaving them to their own devices. Perhaps the solution is to focus more on the education of parents and young adults both in how to prevent such a tragedy from occurring and how to handle the situation if it does. But above all else, I think perhaps we have to get away from this prevalent idea that a child is a “mistake”, and nothing more than an intrusion on our own, personal lives. Prepared or not, unwanted things happen all the time; critical illnesses in ourselves or our families, economic crashes, loss of job, natural disasters, and yes, pregnancy. Few of us are lucky enough to live the lives we dream for ourselves in high school. While we should certainly strive for the best in our lives, even an unexpected baby just may prove the best, most meaningful “mistake” you ever make. But if nothing else, should you find yourself in such a situation, I hope you would also consider adoption, so a woman like myself, who would give anything to make your “mistake”, could have the chance to give your baby the life you fear you can not. That way, not only do you get a second chance at a life, your child does, too. ~Elizabeth Fowler, Sand Lake

Schodack Republicans Select Fiscally Conservative Slate for 2011 The Schodack Republican Committee has endorsed a slate of candidates who will continue with the fiscally conservative policies that produced an upgrade in the town’s bond rating and protected the town’s quality of life. Committee members endorsed Supervisor Dennis Dowds, Councilman Frank Curtis, Councilman Mike Kenney, Town Clerk Donna Conlin, Receiver of Taxes Kathy Lubbers and Town Justice Paul Peter. Under Republican leadership, Schodack recently saw an upgrade in the town’s bond rating from A1 to Aa3 by respected fiscal analysts Moody’s. The upgrade came about after an independent review of town finances and despite a prolonged recession, and puts the town in a better position to attract new business and jobs. The Schodack GOP team was supported by a strong showing on nominating petitions, with nearly 500 signatures collected on nominating petitions. Along with the Republican nomination, Dowds, Curtis, Kenney, Conlin, Lubbers and Peter also received the support of the Conservative and Independence parties. Along with endorsing the re-election of Dowds, Curtis, Kenney, Conlin, Lubbers and Peter, the town GOP also supported the nomination for re-election of Surrogate Court Judge Chris Hummel and Sheriff Jack Mahar, and the election of Joel Abelove for District Attorney. Schodack Republicans are looking to build on the successes of 2010 which saw the committee support the election of Congressman Chris Gibson and Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin, along with other Republican victories. Kenney was also elected to the Town Board in 2010 in a special election.

RENSSELAER REPUBLICAN MONTHLY CLUB MEETING City Republican Chair Lou Lourinia reviewed this summer’s approval by the City Planning Commission of the environmental quality for the hot ash/ asphalt plant being planned for the port of Rensselaer despite citizen protests before the Commission and in published newspaper reports and letters to the editor. According to Mr. Lournia, continued protest strategy is being studied by the Independent “Concerned Citizens of Rensselaer.” He urged committee members to attend and speak out at bi-monthly Planning Commission meetings (2nd and 4th Monday evenings) as well as City Council meetings (1st and 3rd Wednesday evenings) at City Hall at 6PM. “The public must attend these meetings if it wants to see open government in Rensselaer,” he said. Council workshops are also open to the public at the same time on the 1st and 3rd Mondays at City Hall. ~Bill Lithgow, Rensselaer City Republican Club Member

Letter to the Editor: I would like to start out by saying that the contents of this letter are of my own opinion and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of all my fellow employees of the Averill park Transportation Department. It is now the first week of school and many parents have come to their bus drivers with great concern about the changes being made to the previous bus routes. I would like to state that the bus drivers have had nothing to do with reducing hours and changes to arrival and departure times. The overwhelming majority of the runs have been cut by any where from 15 minutes to 1 hour. We all know these are difficult times and belts have to be tightened by doing more with less. I can understand the parent’s frustrations with these major changes. These changes were made by administration only. It is my opinion that these changes were made to save the district money, and I believe there is room for improvement. But the drastic cuts the district has made to the majority of the runs is not an improvement, and in some cases, have created dangerous bus routes and unsafe situations for the children. The district has assured us that they will address our concerns and it is only the first week and things will get better. It is my personal belief that the runs were cut to reduce the salaries of the employees of the Transportation Department as retribution for not agreeing to the districts proposed contract. I think it is a shame that the people that make the least amount of money but have the highest responsibility for the safety of the children can be so easily targeted by the district. ~Keith Hammond, Averill Park Bus Driver Editors Note: The above article does not necessarily reflect the opinion or endorsement of the Editor or the Staff of THE ADVERTISER, and for all intents and purposes is impossible to verify the truth and veracity of its contents.

AGRICULTURE COMMISSIONER COMMENDS USDA ACTION ON DUMPED MILK U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack’s decision to take action that will pay dairy farmers for milk they were forced to dump or which spoiled due to Hurricane Irene is welcome news for New York Farmers,” said New York Agriculture Commissioner Darrel J. Aubertine. “The damage from the storm made it impossible for some farmers to have their milk picked up. In other cases, power outages caused the milk to spoil. The Secretary’s decision to include this milk as part of the Federal milk marketing order pool for August and September means these farmers will not lose their income on this milk. I commend the Secretary’s action. ~Michael Moran, Press Officer - NYS Department of Ag & Markets

ROPE MAKING The Poestenkill Historical Society will be starting their fall schedule Tuesday, September 27th, 2011, with a program on the history of Rope Making. Ropesmiths, Dave and Mike, started making historically correct cordage in 1995, after noticing that Civil War Re-enactors were using nylon cordage in their portrayals. From the beginning of history, hemp has been the preferred fiber for rope making in Europe. The only shortcoming was that, since it came from the stalk of a plant, it was proned to rot if not treated with pine tar. Early 1900’s the production of hemp was outlawed in the U.S as a result from lobbying from oil companies who just came out with a new product — NYLON! Dave and Mike are the only suppliers of hand laid, “tarred” hemp cordage in the New World!! The public is welcome to this free program held in the Poestenkill Town Hall (RT 351) at 7:00PM on Tuesday, Sept. 27th. Refreshments will be provided by Alice Castagnier. For directions, call Pat at 518-283-5223.

status. “Everywhere I go in East Greenbush, residents tell me they are concerned about rising taxes and the amount of debt taken on by the current administration. They are concerned about holding on to their homes and protecting their quality of life,” said Gilbert. “As your Councilman, I will be a voice for taxpayers on the Town Board and ensure that town government is open, honest and responsive to the people,” he added. Ed is seeking election, along with other members of the Hometown Leadership Team, including Keith Langley for Supervisor, Dan Fiacco for Town Council and Corine Sheldon for Receiver of Taxes. The team has been endorsed by the Republican, Conservative and Independence parties and announced an eight-point platform including: • Fiscally responsible policies that control taxes and protect taxpayers • Reduction of the town’s record-high debt • Restoration of the town’s credit rating • Compliance with the state tax cap • Independent audit of town finances • Plan to revitalize Routes 9 & 20 • More citizen involvement in town government • Honest, open and responsive government for all A manager with the New York State Higher Education Services Corporation, Ed has worked for years to help ensure student loans are available to those seeking a better life. Ed and his wife Sally are the parents of two college-age daughters, and his father and stepmother reside in town. His stepbrother, Chris Hummel, serves as Rensselaer County Surrogate Court Judge. “My family and I love East Greenbush and being active parts of our community. I want to make Town Hall work for the people, and help ensure a better future for the town we love,” said Gilbert.

Donations of either gallons of water or individual servings can be dropped off at the town hall.

EMMANUEL REFORMED CHURCH SUNDAY SCHOOL Sunday school began Sept. 11th at Emmanuel Reformed Church for the 2011-2012 Sunday School Program. Emmanuel Reformed Church is located at 1150 Maple Hill Rd., Castleton, (next door to the Maple Hill High School Tennis Courts). Classes Pre-K through 12 begin at 8:45, as we join the congregation in worship. We are dismissed to our workshops after the children’s message. Emmanuel’ Sunday school uses a rotation style of study to meet the learning style of each child or young adult. This year’s theme is Making Worship Real. The purpose of this Study is to teach our children the meaning of worship. By the end of the Sunday School Year they will have learned many of the elements of Sunday Services. The students will have studied connected scriptures, written prayers, lead the congregation in parts of the service, and (1) come to the realization that worship is not about them, but totally focuses on God. Sunday school students will have the opportunity of develop their understanding of God as they participate in Sunday gathering activities as well as participating in the liturgy. Participants of this study will come to understand that worship continues to be the central act of Christians. For more information on our Sunday School or Sunday Services, please call at 732-7766. You may also find Emmanuel Reformed Church on the web and face book.

NORTH GREENBUSH REPUBLICANS SEEK TO CONTINUE PROGRESS FOR TOWN The North Greenbush Republican Committee has endorsed a slate of candidates for the 2011 elections, including elected officials who restored town finances and revitalized important services while holding the line on town property taxes. Republicans also pledged continued support for elected officials who have placed town residents before politics, and avoided the controversies and negativity that have held the town back in the past Town Republicans supported current Councilman Al Spain Jr. for Town Council, Councilman Lou Desso for re-election, Stephanie Piel for Town Council, Amy Clinton for Receiver of Taxes and Town Clerk Kathryn S. Connolly for re-election. Both Spain and Desso joined with Councilmembers Joe Bott and Kelly Hoffman, who have also been endorsed by the Republican Committee, in reducing a $450,000 deficit inherited from the previous Democratic Town Board. The GOP-endorsed team plan on continuing fiscally conservative policies, and reasonable growth to expand the tax base and provide relief to taxpayers. The team will also work to provide needed services, protect quality of life and govern in a cooperative and productive manner. Along with nominating Spain, Desso, Piel, Clinton and Connolly, the town Republican Committee also supported the re-election of Sheriff Jack Mahar and Surrogate Court Judge Chris Hummel, and the election of Joel Abelove as District Attorney.

The School year is just beginning, but many of our fall athletes here at Averill Park High have been working hard for a little less than a month to get ready for their 2011 fall seasons. One athlete in particular is a senior with a 91 GPA and a love for the game of soccer, that senior is Heather Vale. Heather is our very first scholar athlete of this school year, but she won’t be our last. Heather is the Girl’s Varsity Soccer Goalie; she has been playing soccer since 3rd grade and loves the rush of the game. Being named a scholar athlete is seen as an honor to Vale, because she feels that it is nice to be recognized on the field as well as in the classroom for all her hard work and dedication. This year she is taking Advanced Placement Biology, Senior Art Portfolio, Psychology, Participation in Government, Economics, Chic Lit, Military History, and Heath. “Advanced Placement Biology,” says Vale, “is going to be my biggest challenge this year. Senior Portfolio is my favorite course so far, because I find it interesting and relieving with such a busy schedule. I use that time during the day to relax and enjoy my friends company while doing something that I really like.” In addition to playing soccer, Heather played Lacrosse and participated in Indoor Track. This season will be Vale’s third season on the varsity soccer team, and she is a two year starter in the goal. In her spare time, Heather works at a retirement community and spends time with her friends. She finds working at the retirement community rewarding. “I would love to continue playing soccer in college whether for the school or on an intramural or club team,” Vale told me when interviewed. Her love for the game is fuelled by the rush of the game and her love for her teammates and playing with them. Vale is interested in several different majors for her college career. She is interested in Marine Biology, Physical Therapy or owning her own business; but for now, her major is undeclared. She is looking to attend Syracuse University, the College of St. Rose, or a couple other SUNY schools. Heather would like to thank her father for her success on the field and in the classroom because he goes to all of her games and encourages her to do her best at everything she does. Even though Heather is a goal keeper, she is definitely an athlete to watch; you never know when she will just dive into the air and snag a ball to prevent the other team from scoring a goal. Heather is a very dedicated athlete who has put in countless hours and seasons of work into improving her skills on the field. Best of luck to you Heather in the rest of your season, and we hope to hear great things about you in the future!

The Humane Society of the United States and the Humane Society of New York call on schools to abide by new provision in state’s humane education law This school year, middle- and high-school students throughout New York will be reminded of their legal right to choose when it comes to animal dissection. An amendment to the Education law, signed in August 2010 by former Gov. Paterson and which takes effect this year, requires schools to notify students and parents of the right of students to abstain from animal dissection and to abstain from witnessing the dissection of animals without being penalized. The legislation, A.3467-B, was proposed by the Humane Society of New York and was introduced by Assemblymember Linda Rosenthal, D/WF-Manhattan, and Senator Suzi Oppenheimer, D/WFMamaroneck. It charges the board of education or trustees of a school district to develop a policy to give reasonable notice to students and parents about their right to opt out of animal dissection as students with moral or religious objections may do under the existing law. “Over the years, we have been contacted by many students who expressed moral objections to dissection but who were not informed by their teachers of their right to do an alternate project,” said Elinor Molbegott, legal counsel/animal issues, Humane Society of New York. “The new notice requirement should not only help to effectuate the dissection opt-out provision in the humane education law, but should also encourage a dialogue about respect, kindness, and compassion.” The Humane Society of the United States urged passage of the bill in August 2010 on behalf of its more than 800,000 New York supporters. “Adopting this measure has brought New York into line with best practice,” said Patrick Kwan, New York state director for The HSUS. “The mandate greatly improves the existing law which many students and parents do not know about and makes life-science education more fair and democratic.” Students and teachers interested in accessing alternatives to dissection may find resources through the HSUS’ Humane Education Loan Program at:

In recognition of the importance of forests to the health and well being of society, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) announced a contest to Celebrate New York’s Forests. The contest is designed to increase awareness of and appreciation for all types of forests, urban and rural, large and small, public and privately owned, across the state. “The value of our forests cannot be underestimated,” said Commissioner Joe Martens. “In addition to providing clean air, clean water and places for wildlife to live, thousands of people are employed in the forest products, outdoor recreation and tourism industries, thanks to New York’s wealth of forest.” Submitted photos should capture all aspects of forests and trees in five different categories: • Nature (wildlife, plants, natural landscapes, etc.) • Enjoying the forest (hunting, fishing, trails, camping, hiking, etc.) • Trees where we live (parks, streets, yards, etc.) • Forest products (maple syrup, lumber, baseball bats, furniture, etc.) • State-owned Forests (State Forests, Forest Preserve lands, forested Wildlife Management Areas, Campgrounds) Contest details, rules and necessary forms can be found on DEC’s website at: Photos must be taken in New York State. Photos will be accepted through November 1, 2011. A maximum of three photos may be submitted by a photographer, each with a submission form found on the DEC website, via e-mail or on a CD via regular mail. DEC has non-exclusive rights to use submitted photos on DEC’s website, in the Conservationist magazine, in brochures and in other publications promoting forests and DEC.

GRAFTON LAKES STATE PARK INVITES ARTISTS TO THE PARK THIS FALL Grafton Lakes State Park invites artists to portray the park’s fall scenery on Sundays from September 18th through October 9th (Columbus Day weekend). Registered participants in the Art in the Park program will receive free Sunday admission to the park to paint, draw, or photograph in exchange for submitting a piece in the Silent Art Auction at the Winter Festival on January 21, 2012. The Park’s forests, wildlife, and lakes make for spectacular autumn scenery and an ample supply of inspiration. The pieces will be displayed and auctioned at the Winter Festival, which was attended by nearly 2000 people last year. Artists will split the proceeds of the auction with the Friends of Grafton Lakes State Park, a group that supports the park’s environmental education programs. Any works that do not sell at the auction will remain on display in the lobby of the park office for the coming year or be returned to the artist. To sign up, participants can register at the ticket booth on weekends or at the Park office Monday-Friday to receive an Art in the Park pass. You can also call the Park naturalists to register for Art in the Park at 279-1155 and have a pass mailed to you. Space is limited, so call soon to reserve your pass.
