Town of Indian Lake to be decorated with Adirondack chairs this summer

Adirondack Chair

Adirondack Chair

— A new beautification project is planned for the town of Indian Lake this summer.

“Have A Seat- Indian Lake” will showcase locally built and decoratively painted Adirondack chairs in the hamlets of Indian Lake, Blue Mountain Lake and Sabael. The brightly painted and artfully decorated chairs will be strategically placed within the hamlets, along the major byways of Routes 28 and 30.

The project is intended to enhance the attractiveness of the hamlets and a means of inviting travelers and visitors to stop and enjoy the ambience of the town. Chair designs will reflect some aspect of life in the Town of Indian Lake and/or our region of the Adirondacks.

The design may be a realistic or whimsical interpretation depicting the natural environment, the lives of our people, or other approved subject.

Each chair will have a sponsor: a business, community group or organization, or private families/individuals. Sponsors, with assistance from the Have A Seat Committee (HASC), will obtain, design, decorate, care and maintain their chairs. At the end of each summer season, the chairs will be stored and re-exhibited the following summer. Plans are to eventually exhibit as many as 40-50 chairs throughout Indian Lake and to become known for its artistic display of Adirondack chairs.

Success is dependent upon the effort, commitment and talents of people in Indian Lake. Presently, HASC is actively searching for sponsors, chair crafters and artists interested in participating. Interested parties may contact the committee chair, Jack Valentine at (518) 648-5636 or email at adkcamp@frontiernet.net.

The project is a part of the community revitalization efforts planned by the Indian Lake Community Planning Committee, a volunteer group active in planning and guiding the way towards a vibrant, sustainable community.
