2012 Annual Meeting of the Lake George Land
Friday, July 13th, 1 - 2:30 pm
with registration form (pdf)
LGLC members, friends and others interested in learning
more about the organization are invited to attend its free Annual Meeting at the
Lake George Club in Diamond Point. RSVPs for the meeting are
appreciated but not required.
Keynote speaker Tony Hall will give a talk titled “Urban displacement and the
future of the Conservancy.” This will be followed by trustee reports,
conservation and program updates, and awards. The awards segment will include
the induction of members of LGLC’s legacy group, the Land and Water Society, as
well as the awarding of LGLC’s inaugural scholarship to Courtney Laczko and the
Lake George High School.
Program updates will include the official public launch of the Round the Lake
Challenge, a new activity for LGLC members. The Challenge requires participants
to complete a list of hikes, paddles and visits to historical sites throughout
the Lake George watershed.
A free guided hike at LGLC’s Amy Wolgin Wiener Padanarum Park in Bolton Landing
will start at 3:00 pm, following the annual meeting, for all those interested.
Carpooling is strongly recommended. Registration for the hike is appreciated.
The public is also invited to join LGLC staff and board of directors for lunch
at the Lake George Club prior to the meeting. A buffet lunch will be available
beginning at noon for $25 per person. Advance registration for the lunch is
requested by phone or email: 518-644-9673,
ABOUT TONY HALL
Tony is the editor/publisher of the Lake
George Mirror, America's oldest resort newspaper, based out of Bolton
Landing. Tony grew up in Warrensburg but finished high school at St Ann’s in
Brooklyn, not, however, without first studying with Beat poet Gregory Corso on
an island in the Aegean and crewing on a schooner in Hawaii. After graduating
from Sarah Lawrence College, he traveled through Greece and Turkey studying
Byzantine art and archaeology and then returned to New York, where he worked at
Lehman Brothers before beginning another attempt at an education, this time in
government and political philosophy at Harvard and the University of Toronto.
Determined to live in the Adirondacks, he took a job as an aide to the region’s
legendary state senator, the late Ron Stafford, dividing his time between Lake
George and the state capitol. In 1998, he and his wife Lisa acquired the Lake
George Mirror, which was once a part of a chain of weekly newspapers owned by
his father, Rob Hall. They live in Bolton Landing, where Hall writes for
magazines when he’s not writing for the Mirror.
