What a humbling experience for all of us at the Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser for Tiffany’s liver transplant! We were really amazed at all the people who turned out to support her. Thank you everyone for all your purchases and donations! It was really wonderful seeing friends and relatives whom we haven’t seen in quite a while. We’d like to especially thank Ben Bernard and all his staff for their helpfulness, patience, and willingness to do this fundraiser. Another special thank you goes to all the family and friends who helped in organizing this, bringing baked goods, and working tirelessly all night- making salads, setting tables, waitressing, bussing, and cleaning up at the end. Thank you SO much! For all those who may not know it, Tiffany will be having her liver transplant surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital. May God bless all of you.

~ Eye On Business ~

I have lived in the Schuylerville/ Victory Mills area my entire life so I am aware of the scenery that I have been blessed to have access to. I have finally decided that I wanted to start doing something that I truly Owner, Mike Hughes love. I have always been very interested in sporting goods and I have been a sportsman all my life. I have enjoyed the hunting and fishing that this vicinity has offered me. Because of the love I have for these sports, I have decided that I wanted to start my own business, offering many items that any sportsman, like myself, would enjoy. I know that it takes a lot of work and perseverance to run a business, which is why I have already begun acquiring my supply of many different knives and hunting/fishing equipment. I have a collection of more common items such as pocket/bowie knives, kitchen cutlery, and older fishing rods, reels and lures. Along with those I have some unique items as well like swords, printed scrimshaw knives, throwing knives and bone handled knives. My ultimate goal is to eventually have my own sporting goods store in a small town setting and to provide access to a wide variety of items for the outdoor sportsman. I am currently running my business out of my home, which is 27 Pond Street in Victory Mills and hope to be expanding the inventory soon. If there is any item that I do not have, I would be glad to order it for you. I invite you to stop by my small, home-run business and check out what I have to offer. I can be reached at 518-695-3012.
