May 2010 brings hot weather, wind storms, even snow…. but the leaves are out and there is one given – Summer 2010 is on its way. This month our authors bring you lots of information.
Kim Lunman presents her story from Island Life, Fulford's Steam Yacht Afloat Again describing the restoration of Magadoma, (Island life was published during the first week of May. Once again, we wish Thousand Islands Ink great success).
Rex Ennis describes A Grindstone Development and Robert Matthews presents Part Two, Summer Among the Thousand Islands.
James Rappaport's Wellesley’s Cross Island Farms describes an enterprise that steps back in time – farming. Jennifer Caddick presents an essay on Wearing hats during low water.
Erin McCarthy Brick presents Photos and Music Celebrate the Thousand Islands Yes, it is true that Great Lake Swimmers, the popular melodic-folk-rock group has played to packed houses from Beijing, China to Vancouver. The group appreciates the work of Ian Coristine and is pleased to headline a show launching his fifth book on Thousand-Islands photography - June 26th as part of Clayton’s River Festival.
I have the pleasure of introducing a New River Leader ( for the Antique Boat Museum).
Jennifer Caddick - Wearing hats during low water…
Originally from Pennsylvania, and now a resident of Clayton, Jennifer has worked for environmental / conservation organizations in upstate New York, and on Chesapeake Bay. Since 2006, she has served as the Executive Director of Save The River. Her family spends its summers on Linda Island.
Having Jennifer "watch over" the River is laudable, and if you have never attended a Save The River, Winter Weekend, mark February 2011 on your calendar. You won't be disappointed.
