Wanted: Art Show Organizers

The Tupper Lake Arts Council is unable to run the summer art show traditionally held the three week of July at the Goff-Nelson Memorial Library. The group is looking for someone to take it over for 2016. This would involve coordinating efforts with the library staff, advertising, mailing invites to potential artists, arranging for setup, enlisting volunteers to man the show and setting up a welcome table. The arts council has templates and letters, etc. used in the past to make organization easier. The art show is always anticipated and well received, and organizers said they would hate for it not to happen this year. Please call Donna Sloan at 359-3888 if you are willing to manage this year’s show.

Downtown revitalization talk: April 25th


The Adirondack Main Streets Program and Integrated Tupper Lake Case Study – Clarkson University’s Adirondack Semester students, in partnership with the Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA), have developed a Main Streets Program to encourage sustainable rural economic growth, particularly for lower-income residents of the Park. Downtown revitalization is a critical component in addressing rural economic development and sustainability in the Adirondack Park. This semester’s students have focused on the creation of the major components of an Adirondack Main Streets Program with an associated supplemental case study designed to complement Tupper Lake’s current Revitalization Strategy. This program focuses on entrepreneurship, clean energy, beautification, low-income economic opportunities, local food access, amenities, land-use strategies, and other improvements. Join us on April 25th at 6:30 in our Community Room.
