Busy times ahead for canal area

H eritage Area director Carol Greenough said last week she has been contacted by the state’s Lakes to Locks passage program to establish a Lakes to Locks center at the Skenesborough Museum. She also said that the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum is again planning for the Lois McClure, a full-scale replica of an 1862-class sailing canal boat, to visit Whitehall again this season.

She said the theme for this year’s voyage is agriculture and that the museum hopes there can be a farmers’ market set up when the ship visits. No dates have been set.

The New York State canal Corp. is planning its annual Canal Clean Sweep event for April 15 to 17, and Gordon said that the town would seek help from Whitehall schools, as it has done in the past. “We’ve had the schools before, and we will want to get them involved,” he said.

The board approved a request to use the park as the base for an event by the non-profit group, Cycle For Celiac, which will hold a 20-mile bike ride and an 8-mile bike tour June 4.

The event, which is designed to raise awareness about the condition that causes serious reactions to gluten, is being organized by Amy Rota-Poulin, a local cookbook author.
