Bench Program

Friday, May 16th, 2014

Inlet is known for it’s small town atmosphere and friendly nature. To make browsing in downtown’s shops more enjoyable, the Economic Development Committee of the Inlet Area Chamber of Commerce, Inc. came up with an idea in the spring of 2000 to place more benches around the community. The Town of Inlet continues this effort. The benches are an Adirondack style bench. They can be seen at ACE Hardware. To donate a bench to the town, fill out the form below and return it to the Information Office. Donations of $175* will include a bench, plaque, and staining of the bench. The Information Office will work in conjunction with the Town of Inlet and area businesses to determine the locations for the benches. Your input will be taken into consideration. The Town will then take responsibility of storing the bench in the winter and bringing it back out before summer begins. The Parks Department will do their best maintaining the bench and plaque, however, you may be contacted if the bench or plaque needs to be replaced.

Download the application, print it out, fill it in and mail it to us to get your bench:  Bench Application

Please note: Due to the increased cost of the benches to the Town, a donation of $175 will be asked for any bench requested after June 17, 2017.

Frozen Fire & Lights Thank You

The Town of Inlet and the Inlet Area Business Association would like to say Thank You to all those who made the 12th Annual Frozen Fire & Lights a great success!

At Fern Park, the sledding hill was a very popular spot, and the ski trails were enjoyed by many, while a nice fire was burning to keep everyone warm.  The Inlet Public Library had some visitors stop in for their book sale.  The Inlet Youth Commission had a very nice turnout for their Noah’s Ark Animal Workshop held at the Inlet Town Hall.  Around 5:30 people started gathering around the huge bonfire at Arrowhead Park, where free hot cider and Zweigle’s hot dogs were served and raffle tickets for an Ellie Sound 120 XE Kayak were sold to benefit the Inlet Historical Society.  This kayak will be raffled off on September 13, 2014.  Promptly at 7:00 PM began the awesome display of fireworks by American Fireworks out of Utica.  As Paul Chambers promised, the show was “bigger, brighter, louder, longer!”  After the fireworks, many wandered over to Matt’s Draft House @ Screamen Eagle for Wine & Chocolate Sampling and then over to The Woods Inn for live entertainment by Double Barrel.

The 4th Annual Cardboard Sled Race was another success!  We had 21 entries and handed out 5 trophies.  Speed was broken down into three categories by age.  In youngest group Addison, Coutney & Natalie Hitchcock of Eagle Bay took home the trophy in their “Olympic Bobsled (Inlet 2014)” with a time of 8.18 seconds.  Fastest in the middle group was the “Mystery Machine” piloted by Hunter, Amanda & John Lincoln of Canandaigua with a time of 5.9 seconds.  Fastest in the oldest group went to Raigan & Mackenzie LaPorte of Eagle Bay in their “Military Jeep” with a time of 6.41 seconds.  Because their jeep was so impressive, they also took home the trophy for “Best in Show”.  And award for Great Spirit (and the most rolls with a smile on her face) went to Charlotte Clark of Inlet in “Pink Bullet”.  Thank you to Dennis Hudson for his master of ceremonies performance and for manning the starting line at the top of the Fern Park sledding hill.  Thank you to the following for their assistance with judging, timing, inspecting, registration and making sure the sleds stayed upright: Adele Burnett, Margie & Bruce O’Hara, Nancy Jennings, Patty Wittmeyer, Jason & Lisa Smith, and John & Andrea Frey.  We are looking forward to next year’s entries!

Thank you to the following for their contributions towards the fireworks: Central Adirondack Association – Adirondack Bank – Adirondack Fairway B&B – Adirondack Reader – Big Moose Yamaha – BJ Queen Enterprises – Tim & Jill Brownsell – Burkhard Evans – Cinnamon Bear B&B – Clark Energy – Clark’s Marina & Snowmobile Rentals – Construction Effects – Brad Damon – Deer Meadows Motel – Drake’s Inn – Eagle Bay Village – Leo Fadel – French Louie ADK Sports – Frisky Otter Tours – Don Gerace – Golden Acres – Hard Times Café – Inlet Barnstormers Snowmobile Club – Inlet Department Store – Inlet Golf Club – Kalil’s Grocery – Levi Lumber – Marina Motel – Eugene Melnyczuk – Mike Marluea Builder – Nelson’s Cottages – The Ole Barn – The Parquet House – Lee Peabody – Pedals & Petals – Quinn’s Cottages – Raquette Lake Supply Co. – Red Dog Tavern – Richard Lutz Building & Mechanical – Rocky Point Properties – Nick Rose – Screamen Eagle Pizza – Jane Slack – Penny Stuart – T’s EZ Mart – Tamarack Café – Ted Payne’s Bus Service – The Wine Shop – The Woods Inn – Zone 3.

Thank you to the following for their time spent setting everything up, attending bonfires and manning hospitality booths: Paul & Reggie Chambers, Aimee VanWie, Dennis & Barb Thibado, Lisa Gambacorta, Mitch Lee, Jay Latterman, Amy Townsend, and the Rochester Post Explorers.

Thank you to the Town of Inlet Highway Department and Parks Department for moving snow, grooming the sledding hill and trails, moving tables, and everything else necessary to ready the parks for this event.

Huge thank you to Mary’s White Pine Bakery for supplying hot dogs & cider, and to the Inlet Youth Commission for providing the grill.  Thank you to the Inlet Emergency Services for being on standby with the ambulance at the sled races and the fireworks.  Thank you to Mary Marleau & Jamie White of the Inlet Youth Commission for hosting the Noah’s Ark Animal Workshop with lots of help from Robin Murdock.  Thank you to American Fireworks for an awesome show!  Thank you to the Town of Inlet and the Inlet area businesses for their support during this event.  And thank you all for your enthusiasm.

And if we have missed anyone, forgive us.  Thanks again for a wonderful weekend.

The Buskers to perform at Arrowhead Lakefront

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

THE BUSKERS at Arrowhead Park – Saturday, August 4, 2012

   As part of Inlet’s Sunsets by the Lake summer concert series at Arrowhead Park, Dennis & Eileen Michael will present folk/pop/jazz artists THE BUSKERS on Saturday, August 4 from 6-8 pm.  This will be the fourth season THE BUSKERS are in the area and they put on a show you don’t want to miss.  So bring a chair or a blanket and enjoy a spectacular sunset with them.  (Rain location Fern Park Pavilion.)

The Buskers are Kathy Sommer on acoustic and electric violins and mandolin,  Craig Jaster on piano, bass, and accordion, Paul Hubert on guitars, and Kyle Tupper on drums, all with three and four part vocal harmonies. Their “roots” repertoire ignores traditional boundaries between jazz, folk, pop and rock and their sound is defined by deep respect for the craft of songwriting and arranging.  In performance, they play a lively fusion of their original acoustic folk/pop, New Orleans-influenced R&B, and jazz, and they always throw fiddle tunes somewhere in the mix.  All members write most of the songs in their repertoire.  A review in Fourth Coast Entertainment magazine describes THE BUSKERS, “Spunky, energetic, fabulously talented…see this band if you get a chance. I’d even call them luminescent. As well as versatile, passionate, and funny.”

The original group formed in 1993 after meeting at an open mic night in Bristol, NH.  Since then they have produced three recordings, gone on to represent New Hampshire at the Eastern States Expo, and perform at historic venues like Canterbury Shaker Village and at town bandstands, music festivals, and opera houses and coffeehouses in the northeast.

For serious BUSKERS fans, more information about this eclectic band and their 2012 schedule can be viewed on their website and blog at

This concert series is brought to you by the Town of Inlet, Eugene Melnyczuk, Dennis & Eileen Michael, Mountainman Outdoor Supply Co.,, the Central Adirondack Association, Overlook at Fifth, The Wine Shop, Red Dog Tavern, Screamen Eagle Pizza, Adirondack Reader, French Louie ADK Sports and Ken & Julie Biehn.
