Paul Smith's College and Paul Smiths-Gabriels Volunteer Fire Department event
This Sunday, Aug. 3 is the annual Canoe Classic hosted by Paul Smith's College and Paul Smiths-Gabriels Volunteer Fire Department. Canoers of all ages and classes are invited to participate. Call 327-6300 and ask for Jim Tucker's office to sign up.
The Paul Smiths-Gabriels Volunteer Fire Department will be hosting their annual cookout fundraiser for this event, with burgers and dogs off the grill. This year we are adding Philly cheese steak sandwiches and sweet Italian sausages to the menu, along with our spread of homemade salads, sodas and Watermellon for the hearty appetite. The cookout food line will start to serve at noon. The race starts at noon as well, with the meal provided with the entree fee for the canoers. Spectators are welcome to join in the cookout as well for a nominal price of the items. So, even you aren't a canoer, c'mon out and enjoy the fun!

Hey Kids! How y'all coming on your book reading, diary writing and craft activities for this summer?
Congratulations once again to those of you who are old enough to have your first job! You will do well, and it's is a memorable experience that you will carry with you all your life.
Here is a quick, easy and healthy snack you can make for an in-between-meal snack or as part of a meal. With Mom or Dad's help, cut washed celery stalks into pieces about 2 to 3 inches long, spread some smooth peanut butter in each of the curved inside pieces. Then stick a row of raisins in the peanut butter. And you now have "Ants on a Log"!
Another variation of this snack is to use softened cream cheese instead of the peanut butter, and slices of green olive with the red plemento and call them "bullseyes." This is also a colorful snack for Christmas, with the red and green.
