Damage sustained by the Post Office when a car ran into it in the early 1980′s.
I can’t remember the exact date, but I came across this picture recently from when a car ran into the Post Office in the early 1980′s. That’s the old bakeshop in the background.

The Huletts Landing Property Owners Civic Association did some tree removal and pruning last week on their private property.
As I was taking this picture, Francis Borden told me that his father had planted the tree pictured above in 1900 for Henry Buckell, the owner of the first Hulett hotel at that time.
So not only would the tree have been over 100 years old, but it also would have been in place when the first hotel burned in 1915.

The LGLC has recently received a donation of land from Mr. David VanHart of Pilot Knob. In addition to his donation, Mr. VanHart has agreed to provide an annual contribution towards the cost of stewardship. Mr. VanHart has donated 63 acres in Fort Ann, with viewsheds of the Dunham’s Bay Marsh and French Mountain.
The property also contains wooded wetlands and a stream that is a tributary of Lake George. The land is accessible by two ROW’s from State Route 9L. Access to the property is currently not open to the public, however a private viewing of the land can be granted view request from the LGLC office.
The VanHart property is a critical component in the LGLC’s goal of protecting the entire Pilot Knob ridge-line for view shed and watershed protection. The LGLC’s long-term goal is to connect it to the Schumann Preserve at Pilot Knob.

There is tree work going on on the golf course today. The large dead tree by the 5th hole was cut down this morning and removed from the Bluff Head Road side.
After it had been cut into four pieces, you can see how much still remained below.

On Saturday evening, July 12th, the Roman Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Albany, Edward B. Scharfenberger, D.D., visited Huletts Landing to celebrate Mass at the Chapel of the Assumption. The Chapel was filled to capacity with local residents who greeted the Bishop enthusiastically.
The Gospel reading was from Matthew 13:1-23 and the Bishop’s sermon was on the sower who went out to sow seeds.
After Mass, a reception and dinner was held on the Huletts Landing Property Owner’s Civic Association’s beach and pavilion. As the dinner was beginning, rain poured down making for an intimate dinner as all retreated to the cover of the pavilion.
The Bishop greeted everyone warmly throughout the evening, and it was an enjoyable faith-filled night for all.
Many thanks to Bishop Scharfenberger for visiting, Fr. Rendell Torres for organizing the event, and all the many volunteers who made the evening so enjoyable.
Huletts will long remember the Bishop who came to spread the faith and visit our special community.
