New for Summer 2020 (July 1):
2020 Picnic is canceled, but the Annual meeting WILL be held on August 1 at 11:00 am in the pavilion at Fern Park
As we approach our summer season, we are all obviously mindful of COVID-19 and the changes it has brought upon us including what it means to our Adirondack lifestyles. Therefore:
The Association Board agrees that we should exercise caution and thus we intend to only conduct the Annual Meeting for the membership but forego the Picnic. It is a requirement we do so under our Bylaws. We intend to conduct the meeting while maintaining social distance, and we are asking everyone to bring their own chairs. We are disappointed that we will not have the picnic but believe this is a responsible approach for this year. We are planning on having the fireworks that evening.
Low Lake Levels: Lack of rainfall and snow melt, along with very dry air has significantly slowed lake level rise. Here is real time lake level information from the USGS.
Sixth and Seventh lakes, part of the Fulton Chain of Lakes in the Adirondacks, are located approximately 10 miles from Old Forge, NY in the small town of Inlet, NY. The lakes are separated from the larger chain by the Sixth Lake Dam. They are unique in that they include privately owned residences and businesses as well as an abundance of state owned "Forever Wild" shoreline and wilderness areas. Canoeists and kayakers portage from Fourth and Fifth Lakes onto Sixth Lake to continue their journey through the Fulton Chain and ultimate destinations of Raquette Lake, Tupper Lake, Long Lake and beyond. The Adirondack Canoe Classic held in the fall, also known as the 90-miler, is a three-day canoe race from Old Forge to Saranac and traverses Sixth and Seventh Lake during the first day. Both lakes have businesses - rental camps, hotels, and restaurants. The lakes are joined by a channel running under the Seventh Lake Road Bridge.
Residents and vacationers alike enjoy boating, swimming, fishing, water skiing, sunbathing, wind surfing, and sailing on both lakes during the summer. Of course, winter brings a variety of sports including snowmobiling, skiing, cross-country snowshoeing, dog sledding, and ice fishing. Spring and fall are also beautiful times on the lakes with the fabulous colors of the leaves changing in the fall and new growth in the spring.
