2012 Summer Events


Thank you to all who attended our events and fundraisers through the summer. The annual Breakfast at Camp Chateaugay was again a huge success with over 300 people and we had a beautiful day on the 4th of July for the Boat Parade with a total of 36 boats; thank you for sharing in the festivities whether on your boat or on the beach.  Our annual meeting in July was held at the Chateaugay Town Hall Theater and included an update from Mary Johnson about the work of the Chateaugay Lake Foundation and an update from Jim Johnson, the current chairman of the Water Level Control District Board.  And, although attendance was low at our Block Party on July 7th this year we thank those who attended and supported the Association. We will be hosting some new events next year . . . with more details in the spring. Thank you for your support!
