What's New In Glens Falls
There comes a time in the life of a small, but growing business where a decision to relocate has to be made. Space constraints can be stifling, and changing addresses can be just what a business needs to continue to thrive. The owners of Samantha's Cafe and Catering recently announced that they've reached the point of relocation, and will be expanding to a new space on Glen Street this fall.

The Cole's Woods trails in Glens Falls are perfect for walking, running, cross country skiing, and thanks to a new pamphlet, wildflower-viewing. Local naturalist Diane Collins spent months combing through the trails photographing every wildflower she could find, and she recently compiled that information into a detailed pamphlet to help other nature enthusiasts.

Matthew Rozell is a history teacher at Hudson Falls High School who has been sharing his passion for history with his students for four decades. Nearly 20 years ago, he began assigning his students to interview local WWII veterans, and the result has now been turned into a one-of-a-kind book.

Year after year, Adirondack Theatre Festival brings magic to Downtown Glens Falls, but this summer, ATF has outdone itself. In addition to putting on a number of world-class productions on the main stage of the Charles R. Wood Theater on Glen Street, ATF went above and beyond to create a new cabaret space next door to the Wood, giving Glens Falls an incredibly unique venue that's a perfect host for a wide variety of events!

The New York State flag is easily recognizable by its dark blue background, two goddesses (Liberty and Justice), and the one-word motto "Excelsior," which is Latin for "Ever Upward." There's one state flag currently flying in Downtown Glens Falls, though, that is more easily recognizable than all the others. This flag is the largest of its kind in the state, and at 11' by 17' is virtually impossible to miss!
