Win Two Nights Here

We want to give a member (and their guest) two free nights at the Adirondack Loj near Heart Lake, courtesy of our friends at the Adirondack Mountain Club. The winner can reserve dates at their convenience, so whether you like skiing, hiking, or just walking through one of the most beautiful areas in the world, this contest is for you.

Is This in Your Community?

There are thousands of contaminated properties statewide, one described this way: “The primary contaminant of concern is coal tar, a dark, oily liquid with a powerful and unpleasant odor that migrated to a depth of 34 feet. In some areas, strings of tar were found at a depth of 60 to 70 feet and have spread widely beneath and beyond the site boundaries.”

Benefits of Buying in Bulk

Once upon a time, bulk bins in grocery stores were somewhat of a novelty. Now at many grocers you will find plastic tubs and canisters that display colorful contents, which can range from peach granola  to pet food, and just about everything in between. Buying in bulk is good for the environment and your wallet!
