Emcees Named for SKARTS Gala     Carrie Lazarus, anchor at NewsChannel 9, and Dr. Robert Kiltz, founder of CNY Fertility Center and CNY Healing Arts, will introduce Latin cultural icon Tito Puente Jr., when he performs with his 12-piece jazz band July 28 at the Skaneateles Area Arts Council (SKARTS) gala at Stella Maris Retreat Center in Skaneateles. The event runs from 6 to 10 p.m. Concertgoers will have a multisensory experience, listening to the big band music of internationally acclaimed Puente Jr.; watching performers from La Familia de la Salsa, one of the largest Latin dance organizations in Upstate New York; and joining in to interact on the dance floor and take free salsa lessons during breaks. Vivid hot pink, orange and yellow table settings will enhance the outdoor event, as will the gourmet menu prepared by Chris Kuhns, executive chef of the Sherwood Inn. “I’ve listened to Latin music through the decades; Tito Puente is the father of salsa,” says Brian Bromka, artistic director of La Familia de la Salsa and a graduate of Westhill High School. Bromka and his Latin dance group have performed at the New York State Fair, festivals, colleges and universities throughout Upstate New York. La Familia de la Salsa draws interest from people of all ages and nationalities and teaches some 200 people a week such dance steps as salsa, casino and Rueda de Casino, a Cuban-style salsa with a caller. Tickets for cocktails, dinner and dancing are $125. VIP tickets are $250. Proceeds from the gala support the SKARTS community grants program, and fund free concerts and cultural programs presented by SKARTS. For more information, call Fouad Dietz at (315) 685-6655 or go to www.skarts.org.

  ‘On Golden Pond’ Boats to Be Displayed at Antique and Classic Boat Show Event Features Boat Parade, Concerts, Photo Cruise

Two stars of the silver screen—vintage boats from “On Golden Pond,” newly restored over the past year—will make an appearance at the Skaneateles Antique and Classic Boat Show, held in Clift Park July 27-29.   Thayer IV, a 22-foot Chris-Craft Sportsman Utility used by the characters to go fishing and into town, and Mariah, a black 19-foot Century Raven that portrayed the U.S. Mail boat, will be among the 80+ preserved and restored wooden boats on display. In a tent adjacent to the gazebo, “On Golden Pond” will play and memorabilia from the movie will be exhibited, along with documentation on the boats’ restoration.   The boats were bought last year by Seth and Renee Katz, of Hopatcong, N.J., after having been out of commission for more than 20 years. They were painstakingly restored at Katz’s Marina, in Andover, N.J., and have appeared in just one other show this year, in central Florida. “At the Mount Dora show, people went nuts over them,” says Bruce Marsden, of Waldwick, N.J., who will be towing one of the boats to Skaneateles.   Also making an appearance will be Norman and Ethel Thayer, as portrayed by Henry Fonda and Katharine Hepburn (aka Ric and Wendy Fetridge, of Fayette, N.Y.)   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. 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.
