A Scenic Excursion to The Finger Lakes Boating Museum

A Scenic Excursion to The Finger Lakes Boating Museum

Antique Boats, a beautiful day, South end of Keuka Lake, and Ice Cream!!

I caught this crew as they returned from an excursion to the Finger Lakes Boating Museum on the South end of Keuka Lake just outside of the village of Hammondsport.  As they got off the bus I heard "so interesting" and "we learned so much" and "what a beautiful scenic tour!"  Patti Schultz, tour guide and bus driver, said to me, "you have got to go!"  The museum is filled with beautiful antique boats and murals.  The collection of boats are all tied to the Finger Lakes Region and it's located in the historic Taylor Wine Company's main building.  After spending time in the museum, the crew boarded the bus for a drive back by way of Mitchellsville and Prattsburgh (Patti is great at finding the most beautiful routes on our excursions). They stopped in Naples for ice cream/lunch at Lynny Lou's. Then, they continued the scenic drive home going on the High Road on 64, then State Route 21, and home to Ferris Hills.  A great day spent in the Finger Lakes Region!

The Secret to the Ferris Hills/Clark Meadows Molasses Cookies has been Revealed!

Patrick has a passion for baking and it shows in everything he does!

When the calendar says, "Baking Demo: Cookies with Patrick," folks gather around.  Today, Patrick Boylan, a baker at Thompson Senior Living Communities, shared his family recipe for the favorite molasses cookies!  Patrick did his training at Le Cordon Bleu in New Hampshire and has quite some skills in the baking department.  He demostrated how he assembles a batch of the molasses cookies and while he prepared the dough in his very own orange kitchenaid mixer (a gift from his Mom) he told us about the baked goods he prefers to make in our kitchen.  He loves to decorate cakes and cookies.  One of his other family recipes that he prepares for the residents is a raspberry cheesecake.  He enjoys baking and decorating wedding cakes and says that his passion came from his mother's love of baking.  it was a special treat to meet one of our talented cooks and to hear some of his personal story.  Thank you Patrick!

Poppy

The Flower of Remembrance

Making artificial poppies is a long-standing tradition and today we all pitched in to help the local Veterans Affairs assemble poppies. Close to 400 poppies were assembled and we had a good time sharing stories and remembering our own experiences with the symbolic poppy.
