Nov. 16th & 17th - GAMES – A romantic COMPLICATED like/crush LOVE story SAGA – Auburn Public Theater, 108 Genesee St., Auburn.  The Drawing Board Theatre Project presents an Original Play written and directed by Rachel Carrozziere.  The ageless question continues to baffle us today: Is there such a thing as true love? Love stories have dominated theater from the beginning. Why have myths and fairytales about valiant heroes who rescue princesses trapped in towers, stood the test of time? Despite our vast differences, there is an undeniable force that draws us together. This play challenges us to laugh at ourselves, our obscured ideas of relationships, and how things ‘should’ be. Through the process of producing this play, I have concluded one thing: love is what it always has been, a mystery. There is no right or wrong way to define it. In fact, it is its intrigue that entices us, and its power to scale any obstacle that makes love the miracle that it is. $15/at the door; $10/advance, 11/16 8:00 pm, 11/17 5:00 & 8:00 pm. www.auburnpublictheater.org  315-253-6669

Lucky Dogs Canine Services expands it’s services!

Lucky Dogs Canine Services, a Skaneatelesbased

pet care services company, is pleased to announce that they have purchased the mobile pet

grooming van formerly known as Bailey’s Bubble Bus. Lucky Dogs Canine Services currently offers inhome

pet sitting at their client’s houses, daily dog walking, and pet taxi for pets to their vet appointments.

Bailey’s Bubble Bus began mobile pet grooming services in the Auburn & Skaneateles area during the Fall

of 2011. When the opportunity arose to purchase the grooming van from the owner, Brendan Grillo, it

was a logical next step for the pet care company. “Since we specialize in high quality pet care at our

clients’ homes, I am excited to now bring pet grooming to our clients’ homes,” said Amy Schiek, owner of

Lucky Dogs Canine Services. “In-home pet sitting and mobile pet grooming are both less stressful for the

pets and more convenient for their people than similar services provided away from home.” The grooming

van carries its own power supply and water supply, so the groomer is able to provide all of the services of

a traditional groomer right in the driveway of the client’s home. During a mobile grooming appointment,

only one pet at a time is in the van so pets aren’t waiting in crates for their appointments. Cage dryers

are not used – each pet is towel dried & blown dry.

The Board of Trustees of the

Skaneateles Library Association (SLA) announced that Skaneateles

resident Nickie Marquis has been appointed to the position of Library Director. Marquis, who has lived in

Skaneateles since August 2010, brings over ten years of experience in library management, collection

development, fundraising, public programming, and reference services, most recently serving as Director

of Development at the Seneca Falls Library. Please stop by the Library and welcome Nickie to the

business community.

The Skaneateles Historical Society announces its November Program – Kihm Winship will talk about notso-

famous but nevertheless fascinating cottagers who have graced our lake’s shore, including a Chicago

political power who always delivered his ward, a Confederate private who was captured at Fort Fisher and

an officer whose wife carried messages for Jefferson Davis, an attorney whose daughters were pioneering

feminists, a society woman who was sufficiently down-to-earth to rescue four boys whose boat capsized, a

man who gave away 50 acres on the lake when he couldn’t find a buyer, and a woman who invited guests

to her home but didn’t come downstairs to meet them. He will also talk about a famous cottager said to

live here who actually never did, and reveal the truth about Martin Revson and Dr. Joyce Brothers. Join us

on Tuesday, November 27 at 7:30 at The Museum at The Creamery, 28 Hannum St.
