What beautiful weather we have in store for us today at the Harbor! Mostly sunny skies will bring in a high near 80 degrees, with a calm wind in the afternoon.
Happy Friday, everyone! Basin Harbor is delighted to welcome back David & Karen Jahns from New Canaan, CT, along with the whole troop, Kevin, Andrew, Katie, and Tommy. Also from New Canaan are Kirk & Molly Ludtke, with Jack, Annie, and Ellen in tow. We welcome Tracy & Susan MacGregor of Princeton, NJ for the weekend, as well as David & Birgit Stueber from Darien, CT. The Parker Family is here for their reunion from Pittsburgh, PA, and we are glad to have them. We hope you all enjoy your stay at Basin Harbor Club!
Basin Harbor sadly reports a very special lost teddy bear, who recently disappeared from loving arms somewhere on property. If you or anyone you know finds a smallish, off-white stuffed bear with a little green button and one paw labeled “Herrods”, please return it to the front desk. Someone will be very appreciative!
Our weekly Basin Harbor Triathlon was a great success! Honors for Top Female went to Peyton Lienhart at 21:30, for a brand new Basin Harbor record! Way to go! Will Bartley came in with 21:40 as our Top Male. Oona Nash with 24:30 was our Top Female Youth, and 7-year-old Sam Bartley won Top Male Youth with a time of 25:43. Honors for Top Team went to Jodi Bartley and her daughter Addie, and our special Bare Foot Athlete Award goes out to Lillian Goodyear for an amazing race, finishing without shoes. Well done, Triathletes!
A Photography Ordering Session will be held in the Club Room from 12-2 pm. All candid images from this week will be on sale: 25% off! So, whether you are ordering from candids, our family portraiture specials or a private session, stop by and meet with Ann-Marie to view samples, ask questions and place your orders.
Feeling glitzy? Find your personal style from a treasure chest of beads! Bejewel yourself with some stunning accoutrements that Asia will help you to put together during her Jewelry Class.
Did you know that almost every part of the cattail is edible? Or that you can make a summer drink out of sumac flowers? Stop by the Nature Center to check out our display Beyond the Maple Syrup: Useful Nature in Vermont’s Past and Present, and pick up a recipe for Cattail Pollen Pancakes! While you’re there, grab a freshly pressed Hiking Guide to local trails outside of Basin Harbor, in case you feel like climbing to the top of the Green Mountains. Some of the trails are as close as a 15 or 20 minute drive away!
Get ready for a Friday night of fun! After watching your favorite friends perform their best talents at the Basin Harbor Talent Show, head to the Red Mill for a few live sets by the band Amozen. See you there!
