    Wave to the Mailboat

    by spainaa Written Dec 19, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every day during the summer months Midlakes Navigation Company offers customers the opportunity to tour around the lake on one of their boats. If you're on the lake or at a camp around the lake, make sure to wave to the boat. If you're on the boat, be sure to wave to all the people along the shore.

    Skaneateles has had an interesting growth history from being a simple hamlet to the resort city it is now. During those growth years, communities of pople with similar interests or heritage have sprung up and been gathered into the Skaneateles township.

    Some of those communities are:
    Highland Way... area centered on Onondaga Rd
    Jones Beach... on the east side of Skaneatles Lake along route 41; summer homes overlooking the lake front
    Long Bridge... north of Skaneateles
    Mandana... on the west side of the Skaneateles Lake
    Mottville...hamlet along Jordan Street
    Sandy Beach... just south of Skaneateles on west side of the lake
    Skanondaga Heights... hamlet on the west side of the lake
    Thornton Grove... village on the west side of the lake
    Thornton Heights...
    Wicks Corners... northwest of Skaneateles
    Willow Glen... on Old Seneca Turnpike
    Winding Ways... hamlet of new residential homes on the west side of Skaneateles Lake

    listen for the chimes.....

    The clock tower in the center of town, chimes at 3,6,9 and 12. (2003)

    It is just another one of those little factors that unifies the townfolks and keeps them on the same time.

    Where we live (Rochester, NY), all we get is the emergency alert blast at 12-noon every Saturday when they test the civil-defense systems.
    I like the Skaneateles method better.
