Restaurant, Nonprofit & Wildlife News Around Lake George

The Village location is open 9am to 5pm daily, and the Outlets location is open 10am to 6pm Sunday through Thursday, 10am to 9pm Friday, and 10am to 8pm Saturday.
Howard Johnson’s Is Not Expected to Open This Summer
The Howard Johnson’s restaurant in Lake George has been closed for the past few months, reports the Times Union, and is currently up for lease. News 10 ABC additionally reports that the restaurant’s phone number has been disconnected.
It’s possible the restaurant could reopen depending on if and when it gets leased, and how that deal plays out, but the general consensus is that this is highly unlikely.
Howard Johnson’s was once the largest restaurant chain in the country, and the one in Lake George stands as the last HoJo restaurant left.
CEO of Double H Ranch’s Retirement Coincides With 30th Anniversary
Double H Ranch, the nonprofit camp in Lake Luzerne that welcomes kids with serious or terminal illnesses, is celebrating their 30th anniversary this year. The organization recently announced the retirement of Max Yurenda, who has served as CEO for all three decades.
“It has been the honor and privilege of my lifetime to serve as the CEO of Double H Ranch,” Yurenda said in a statement. “I am incredibly proud of this organization and the impact we have made.”
To date, Double H has brought joy to over 80,000 campers. If you’d like to get involved/find a fun way to donate, they have a golf tournament coming up on June 9 at the Sagamore, as well as a pulled pork takeout fundraiser at Lake Luzerne’s St. Mary’s Church on June 17.
Rabid Foxes Reported in Queensbury & Bolton
There have been two separate incidents of rabid foxes biting people in Warren County recently, according to The Post Star. Two people were bitten in Bolton last week, a third person came into contact with that fox while trying to capture it, and there was another incident in Queensbury that resulted in a bite; all four people are being treated for rabies.
What this means for residents and visitors is to continue to observe wildlife and their young from a distance, and keep your pets up to date with their rabies shots.
