BRASHER FALLS The Brasher area will again this year host a muskie challenge.
We talked about having it just one day this year. We thought maybe we would concentrate on the soldiers, town Supervisor M. James Dawson said.
This years event is set for Sept. 7. The 2012 Hometown Heroes Muskie Challenge brought 32 soldiers from Fort Drum and 32 guides from around the area to Brasher to fish in the St. Regis and Deer rivers.
Mr. Dawson said he had talked with James Stickney from American Legion Post 514, Winthrop, who said there were many soldiers in the 18- to 19-year range who enjoyed last years event.
The town also allocated funding for this years fifth annual Super Cruise-In and Car Show, which is scheduled to run from 4 to 8 p.m. Aug. 21 at the Brasher Municipal Building.
Last years Super Cruise-In and Car Show featured not only classic vehicles, but also a contest asking participants to dress in a period costume corresponding to their vehicle.
Although hes still working out the details for this years event, Mr. Dawson said he already has arranged for bands to play and has ordered dash plaques, which are being provided by W.B. Goodnow Insurance Agency. He said he also has talked with representatives from Primabellas and Lavignes IGA, and will be meeting with a representative from the Quad Town Lions Club to see whether it plans to set up a concession again this year.
