Skaneateles Antique and Classic Boat Show Pays Tribute to ‘On Golden Pond’

While it’s not unusual to spot a celebrity in Skaneateles, this summer will mark the first sightings of Henry Fonda and Katharine Hepburn.   Fonda and Hepburn (aka Ric and Wendy Fetridge), playing Norman and Ethel Thayer, will reunite with two of the vintage boats from “On Golden Pond” at the Antique and Classic Boat Show July 27-29 in Clift Park.   Thayer IV and Mariah, both of which had been out of commission for more than 20 years, will be among the 80+ preserved and restored wooden boats on display. They will be docked adjacent to the gazebo, where the sidewalk meets the seawall. In a tent nearby, “On Golden Pond” will play and memorabilia from the movie will be exhibited, along with documentation on the boats’ restoration.   Thayer IV is a 22-foot Chris-Craft Sportsman Utility that was used by the characters to go fishing and into town. Mariah, a black 19-foot Century Raven, portrayed the U.S. Mail boat.

The two were bought last year by Seth and Renee Katz, of Hopatcong, N.J., and painstakingly restored at Katz’s Marina, in Andover, N.J. They have appeared in just one other show this year, in central Florida.   The Antique and Classic Boat Show, which attracts more than 10,000 visitors each year, is organized by the Finger Lakes Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society and the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation (also known as the Skaneateles Foundation), and presented by M&T Bank. Hours are 3 p.m. to dusk Friday, 9 a.m. to dusk Saturday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free.

This is the Finger Lakes Chapter’s 34th annual show, and the 18th year it has been held in Skaneateles.   “The show has become a tradition for exhibitors, families and visitors,” says Susan Dove, executive director of the Skaneateles Foundation. “With children’s activities, the boat parade, free concerts, historical tours—and shopping and dining opportunities afforded by the village’s unique boutiques, galleries and restaurants—there truly is something for everyone.”     Judging of the boats, in 35 categories, takes place Saturday morning. Throughout the weekend, visitors to the show will cast their votes for the highly coveted People’s Choice Award, sponsored by Doug’s Fish Fry, which will be presented at 3 p.m. Sunday. Additional highlights include: • Performances by the Skaneateles Community Band, 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday; Frankie Michaels, noon to 3 p.m. Saturday; and the Soda Ash Six, noon to 3 p.m. Sunday.   • A display of antique model boats by the Syracuse Model Boat Club, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.   • A junior judging competition, sponsored by Hagerty Classic Marine Insurance, 10 a.m. Saturday.   • Opportunities for children to paint their own wooden boats, Saturday morning.   • A strolling performance by the Salt City Barbershop Quartet, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.   • Guided tours by the Skaneateles Historical Society, starting at 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. $10 per person, with proceeds benefiting the Historical Society.   • A boat parade and fly-by, starting at 3 p.m. Saturday. • A photo-shoot and spectator cruise aboard the Judge Ben Wiles, 10 a.m. Sunday. The Judge will leave from the Mid-Lakes Navigation dock in Clift Park and make a slow tour of the north end of Skaneateles Lake, while exhibiting boats make random passes and provide opportunities for action shots. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children under 13 accompanied by an adult. Coffee and pastries will be available; no reservations are necessary.     • Raffle drawings.   This year’s poster was developed from a painting by Marcellus resident Jason Cooper King, who paints in acrylics on canvas. King, motivated by the appreciation for a simpler time, enjoys working from old photographs that depict classic Americana. Posters are $10 and are on sale at the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce, 22 Jordan St., and at the show. The Antique and Classic Boat Show is officially sponsored by M&T Bank. Contributing sponsors are Katz’s Marina, Summit Auto, the Sherwood Inn, Mirbeau Inn and Spa, Delmonico Insurance Agency, Doug’s Fish Fry, Hagerty Classic Marine Insurance, The Sailboat Shop, Adams & Son Insurance, Bluewater Grill & Sweetwater Café, cate&sally, John’s Body Shop Auto and Marine, Johnny Angel’s Heavenly Burgers, the Mandana Inn, Menter, Rudin & Trivelpiece P.C., Mid-Lakes Navigation, Realty USA, the Slottje Family. Media sponsors are Group M Communications, Scotsman Press, the Skaneateles Journal, Time Warner Cable and WRVO-FM.   For more information, go to http://www.skaneateles.com or call the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce at (315) 685-0552.

E. Genesee St. – John Decker from

College Assistance Plus will discuss how to negotiate

better deals at private colleges and grad schools, regardless of family income. Whether you are

a parent of student in middle school, high school, or already in college, you’ll learn strategies to

find a viable major and career, then progressively reduce the cost of college throughout

undergrad, grad programs, med school, and law school. Six figure student debt is common and

53% of 2010 college grads are unemployed or in non-degree jobs. Starting early in identifying

careers and majors can mitigate this, plus will help avoid changing majors 4 times and staying in

college an average of 5.5 years! The fresh approach that

College Assistance Plus (CAPlus)

developed was covered in full page article in the New York Times. CAPlus will email this article

in advance plus other practical information upon request. NCAA sports strategies will also be

June is around the corner, wow!  We will be welcoming in summer with an exhibition by our very own, Jeremy Randall. If you don’t know Jeremy, he is my very talented husband. He can be found behind the scenes year round, updating the website, changing light bulbs, and keeping up with the “honey do” work list. He can also be found behind the counters during the summer months when he is not teaching at Cazenovia College. The main hat that Jeremy wears however, is as a potter.  The exhibition of Jeremy’s work, on view through June 30, marks the first time that Jeremy’s architectural ceramic vessels will be paired with his landscape drawings.  “Landscape has become increasingly important to me, both in my work and in my life.  From the rural architectural forms that populate the landscape I call home, to the land that we live on and are sustained by, I am realizing more and more that we need to be rooted in the land.”

We are very excited to be hosting this exhibition, so please join us for a reception June 1st, 6-9pm.  Refreshments will be served, and musical entertainment provided by the Usual Suspects(although Jeremy will not be playing the banjo for this show, he will be in the gallery to chat about his work). We hope you can join us! While your in be sure to take a peak at our new bridal jewelry.  Staying true to our roots, we have found 3 talented artists’ that have created one of a kind engagement rings and wedding bands.  Do you know someone looking to propose…………………….   We hope to see you soon! Warm Regards, Sarah
