Stuart Mesinger to Speak at Mud Season Potluck
The Spring "Mud Season" potluck will be held Sunday, April 29, in the Community Center the Potsdam Presbyterian Church. (See outings schedule for details). Our evening's speaker will be Stuart Mesinger, author of No Place I'd Rather Be: Wit and Wisdom from Adirondack Lean-to Journals. Stuart lives in South Glens Falls, New York, with his wife, Peg, and his son, Will. A native of Charlottesville, Virginia, he grew up hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains, especially the Shenandoah National Park. During his teen years he developed an interest in spelunking and explored many caves in the Allegheny Mountains of Virginia and West Virginia.
Mesinger graduated from St. Lawrence University with a dual degree in geology and environmental studies. While there he fell in love with the lakes, rivers, and seasons of the Adirondacks. He returned to Canton as an environmental planner for St. Lawrence County after stints as an exploration geologist and environmental consultant. He is an avid hiker, paddler, and angler who continues to explore the Adirondacks often.
In the mid-'eighties Stuart moved to the Glens Falls area to become the first town planner for the Town of Queensbury. He is currently vice president in charge of community planning for The Chazen Companies and manager of Chazen's Glens Falls office.
