Each April, the BHC staff moves from winter quarters to summer office locations at the Lodge, Sunshine and Laundry buildings. All went smoothly last week and we’re raring to get some guests here!
When Bob and I were growing up, the resort didn’t open until mid-June, which seems hard to believe today! We got our own little summer vacation before things revved up back then. How did we pass the time? Back in the day, we had horses at BHC, so all of my time was spent at the stables, the location of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum now. Bob had many adventures, including hunting frogs in the area below the cemetery. Ask him to show you the scar on his leg from the spear . . .
Since golfers can’t wait any longer, today, April 27, marks its opening. The course is in terrific shape and it’s nice to see people out there enjoying it! The ospreys have returned to their nesting pole on the 15th hole, thrilling everyone who gets a glimpse of them. Hope you’ll come out soon, too.
Chef Juan Brenes is putting the Red Mill in order for its opening on May 10. He has made some changes to the menu (but kept all the favorites) and we know you’ll want to come try them.
Mothers’ Day is just around the corner on May 12. Come one come all for Brunch from 10 am to 2 pm. In addition to Chef Christian Kruse’s scrumptious menu, Jeni Johnson will be serenading us with dulcet jazz, and the Kids’ activities will provide a respite from all that sitting and eating. Please call 802-475-2311 for reservations.
And when the entire resort opens on May 17, the first event will be the Bixby Free Memorial Library’s annual Gala. The library is a wonderful resource in our community and we welcome the opportunity to contribute to its success. If you’d like to join the festivities, an evening of libation, great food and dancing, please visit www.bixbylibrary.org for information and tickets.
The Basin Harbor goes to the dogs on May 18 with Woofstock, a day of fun for dogs and their people. Click here for more details, and put it on your calendar – don’t miss all the fun!
We hope you’re outside enjoying spring – come see us soon! Pennie
