Let me begin by telling you, Sweet Thing and I had a great time in Clayton. She didn’t even get bored going around looking at all the decoys and art work on display, at least she said she didn’t. We spent plenty of time at each exhibit, and the area was full of them. I went a little overboard at the auctions, but I think for the most part, I got a good value for my money.
We ate at the Thousand Island Inn, which has some excellent meals for the hungry tourist or show goer. All in all, we felt it was worth our time.
One booth was completely different from all the others, and it wasn’t selling anything. It was staffed by one lady, Patricia Sweet, from Lowville who was giving out information about a non-profit organization named “ Hunt Of A Lifetime”. She is a cordial and informative ambassador for this organization whose sole purpose is to grant hunting and fishing adventures to children who have been diagnosed with life threatening illnesses. Let me tell you a little more about this charitable organization.
