Thanksgiving allows us to look forward to the future based on the past. This gives us an opportunity to thank those people who have played an important part in our lives.  It is a uniquely North American holiday, started when persons, barely hanging on by their fingernails, came together to realize how truly lucky they were.

As winter starts to chill our watershed, we at the SLA are grateful for many blessings:

For the priceless watershed we share; for our members for their generosity in volunteer work and financial support; for local businesses including Schroon Lake Marina, Sticks and Stones, Witherbees Carriage House, Trail Break, and Pinecone Mercantile, who have supported us over the years; for Town, County and State officials who have worked with us and supported our goals; for our partners in protecting our watershed ESSLA and PLA; for our Boat Launch and Boat Decon Stewards; for the Officers and Board Members of the SLA whose hard work is often not recognized.

We wish you and your family a great and peaceful Thanksgiving!

Mark Granger President SLA
