Plays and similar activities have come under the auspices of SOAR, the after-school enrichment program, in recent years.

At the final show, on Sunday afternoon, May 21, Ayla Hill as Dorothy escaped from Miss Gulch, only to encounter the Wicked Witch of the...

Old-fashioned inn prospers with new business model

cythiah@lakevillejournal.com

LAKEVILLE — The recent sale of Troutbeck, the inn and conference center in Amenia, and the 2014 sale of The White Hart to its current investor group have brought to mind another notable local inn, the Wake Robin in Lakeville. 
Although the inn was listed for sale several years ago, co-owner Shaffin Shariff said in an email that it has not been on the market since 2012. It was listed in 2011 for just under a half million dollars by Shariff and co-owner Michael Loftus.

No skating on the lake yet

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

LAKEVILLE — Don Mayland reports from the shores of Lake Wononscopomuc: “I know this mild weather makes it hard to believe, but I have declared ‘ice in’ as of the night of Jan. 9, 2017. 
“If you look at the lake today it looks like it’s all water out there, but that is melt water due to the rain and mild weather. It is all ice underneath … but very, very unsafe ice.”

Silent no longer, thanks to Donald Sosin

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

SALISBURY — Jack Bowman warned the audience that the Salisbury Sinfonietta might encounter some difficulties while playing Donald Sosin’s music for the Charlie Chaplin 1916 silent film, “The Pawnshop.”
“At other places they get three rehearsals,” said Bowman, the conductor. “We got one. So if we stop and yell “letter F”…”
And that is pretty much what happened.
It was an unusual show at the Congregational Church on Sunday, Jan. 15.
