Dinner Update

I just confirmed plans for dinner at 6:30 PM Saturday night at the Lodge in Lake Clear. Our hosts Cathy and Ernest Hohmeyer will have their Classic fare which consists of their Adirondack Harvest with an Old World twist 3-course dinner.  It includes an Adirondack Harvest soup, a Fallfest salad and your choice of 5 main entrees. The cost is $40 per person plus tax and gratuity. There will be a cash bar and I’ll be donating the appetizers. Dessert is extra.

Please bring photos, videos or just old tales of your adventures at NCCC.

The Plan

Plans have been modified for the 30th Anniversary celebration of the North Country Community College’s Wilderness Recreation Leadership Program but it is still on.  The Waterhole is saving the upstairs for a Friday (November 13) night gathering (7:30 PM until ?) and for those that want to stay through Saturday we will have a dutch treat dinner at the Lodge in Lake Clear. I need a confirmation from  you so I can plan appropriately. I’m hoping that we can get a great turn out to share stories and remember good times!

Please drop me an email or leave a comment here if you plan on attending.

I hope you can join us.

    What do folks think about having the dinner at Lake Clear Lodge as originally planned? Maybe we could order off the menu. It’s a nice place to gather. It is pretty expensive, but the food is locally sourced and it’s a locally owned, sustainable business. If cost is a consideration, then the banquet room at Nona Fina is nice for this type of gathering. I think it wouuld be nice to be able to show slides/video- I think jack has a nice presentation of Paul Petzoldt video clips he can show. I also have an old VHS tape of a video profile of the WRL program dating from the late ’80’s. It shows Duane Gould with a huge afro and shots of other shaggy WRL students. (Not to mention Jack with red hair- rather shocking.)

      We’ll have to check with the Lake Clear Lodge. They were thinking of going on vacation if we didn’t have enough people for a full-fledged dinner. I’ll try to give them a call today.

    Sorry I missed the event, I’m sure it was full of good times and bad stories. I would love to be notified of events associated with WEA and the people involved with the program. Hey Joe B. are you ever going to call me back! I know the deer calls. Just a note to anyone interested, I had a few cocktails with Mike Yaw this past summer in Lake George and he is doing well. On a side note; he looks old. Ha Ha! I can be contacted at
