Adirondack chair won’t sit still for long

PLATTSBURGH — Keep your eyes peeled for a special Adirondack chair that is promoting the region through the Adirondack Coast Visitors Bureau.

Decorated with an Adirondack Coast theme, #AdirondackCoastChair was painted by SUNY Plattsburgh student Kayla Kempf and features a basket of props. It is traveling throughout the area to various attractions and events until October, and the Visitors Bureau is using Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to reveal it location and encourage visitors to take their picture in the chair and post it on social media with the hashtag #AdirondackCoastChair. The project ties directly into the Destination Master Plan by encouraging visitors to explore the entire community, sharing experiences and strengthening the Adirondack Coast brand, a press release said.

Today, the chair is at Airborne Park Speedway in Plattsburgh. 

Participants are urged to follow the Adirondack Coast on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter so the Visitors Bureau can see the #AdirondackCoastChair photos and visitors can get up to date information on events and activities and find out where the #AdirondackCoastChair will be next.

New Legion motorcycle group formed in Malone

MALONE — Avid motorcycle riders who also belong to the American Legion have formed a new chapter of the organization in Malone.

American Legion Post 219 is sponsoring the local chapter, but members of any post in Franklin County may join, along with members of an auxiliary or Sons of the American Legion.

Group activities include providing an honor guard at military funerals or escorting troops returning from combat deployment, and the members hold fundraisers to support wounded warriors returning home who need financial assistance.

For more information, call Mark Langdon at 618-9929 or 483-4910 after 2 p.m.
