Kudos to all the folks who planned and volunteered at the annual Casting for Kirby youth fishing derby today. And a big thank you to all the kids (and parents!) who braved the cold and rain to participate. I was in Town Square this morning as one under dressed dad tried to hurry along his young fisherman. The little boy scolded his father, “Dad, you should have dressed for the weather.”
At the Waterville Valley Golf Club, Mike Aronson fired up the propane heaters on the screened patio and a hardy crowd came out tonight for the Club’s 115th opening party. Luckily, the clubhouse TV was set-up near the bar, so diehard Boston Bruins’ fans were able to catch some of the game while they mingled (as evidenced in the photo, below!).
After enjoying food and libations at the golf clubhouse, a number of people made their way over to Town Square for the Rey Center Art Gallery opening reception. The new exhibit, “Impressions of the North Country,” is on loan from Waterville Valley resident Chris Larsen. The collection of locally-inspired landscapes were created by Russian artist, Boris Oskin, whose visit to the U.S. was hosted by Waterville Valley’s late Donald Jasinski. The exhibit is on display through June 22.
It’s always fun to catch up with old friends and make the acquaintance of new ones at these community events. …Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go stoke our two wood stoves…bbrrrrrrrrrr…!
