If you haven’t heard yet, property tax bills sent out to Indian lake, Sabael and Blue Mountain property owners are incorrect. Hamilton County Real Property Tax Service Department will be generating new bills and hopefully they will arrive in about 2 weeks. In the meantime, everyone will have until February 28th to pay without any penalty.
It’s an old concept, but a good one. Pay it Forward, or if someone is kind to you instead of returning the kindness to them, pass it on to someone else. As a reminder, you can purchase an official Pay it Forward bracelet at the library for $2 and pass it on with a good deed when you are ready. We’d love to see our community as the center for all that is good all year round!
The final meeting of the year will be held on Monday, December 16, at 4:30 at the library

INDIAN LAKE WRITERS’ GROUP
Monthly Newsletter November, 2013, D. Bradley LXXXVI
On a cool November afternoon we joined together to discuss our shared enthusiasm for writing. We are pursuing the project of preparing for a future publication of our work. Over the past ten years, our group has successfully published two books, Mountain Moments in 2005, and Footprints Past and Present in 2008. Now we are off and running to publish a third. We are in the process of accepting ideas for a title. After some discussion we have decided that each person who wishes to be included in this future endeavor may offer two written pieces. Our unifying connection is to the Adirondacks and we often find ourselves writing about this area which inspires us. Therefore, one piece may represent this connection. However, we are all individuals with unique backgrounds and experiences and thus, a second piece may offer insight into another aspect of our lives. This is an exciting endeavor and we look forward to future submissions and a successful outcome in 2014 Continue reading

I believe that all who attend our Writers’ Group gatherings will agree that they come away inspired and filled with good humor. Our monthly meetings offer pleasant conversation and good comradeship.
Our first discussion concerned our up and coming brand new Chap Book. We are in the process of collecting pieces for submission and thinking about the title we will give it. The book’s theme will revolve around the one unifying trait which is that we all feel a strong connection to the Adirondacks. All ideas and types of writing will be acceptable. Continue reading
