September was gone in a flash!

It’s already October! Soon, Thanksgiving celebrations and

Christmas will be coming up and before you know it, a whole new

year will begin!

We have been very caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday

life here at the Chamber. We have been planning exciting events

and joining in on the celebrations and openings of new businesses

here in Lake Placid. All the while, time has been flying by. It stops

for no man… or woman. Sometimes we can just be too busy to

enjoy the small stuff and it’s then that time really slips away quickly.

A famous quote by Harvey Mackay says “Time is free, but it’s

priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it,

but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back.”

Those words ring so true, and really hits home for us at the

Chamber as we mourn the loss of our Chamber Director’s husband,

Larry, who unexpectedly passed away on October 10 th .

In these next few months that are often considered the busiest time

of the year, let’s all try to slow down just a little bit. Let’s try to

enjoy little everyday moments that make life wonderful. Let’s tell

our loved ones that we love them a little bit more often. Let’s

forgive a little bit quicker and hate a whole lot less. Let’s try hard to

find joy in the everyday things that we so often take for granted. The

giggle of a child, the smell of a beautiful flower or the taste of your

favorite supper time meal. Talking with a friend on the phone or

meeting up for coffee. Relishing in a good tight hug from a loved

one. Most importantly, let’s really try to spend quality time with

those that we hold most dear, because we are not promised

tomorrow, and time waits on no man…or woman.

FUNFACTSABOUT

*The meaning behind October’s name is far from accurate these days.

The ancient Roman calendar was based on the lunar cycles, as opposed

to our current calendar which is based on the solar cycles. This meant

that there were originally 10 months in their calendar, and October was

the eighth month. Its name literally translated into “the eighth month”

in Latin. In 451 BC the two months of Ianurarius and Februarius were

added to the beginning of the calendar, making October the 10th month.

*There are seven months in the year with 31 days and October is the

sixth of them. The amount of days hasn’t changed over the ages either,

with the ancient Roman calendar also placing 31 days in October.

*The Anglo-Saxons’ name for October was Winterfylleth, with its name

containing the words for winter and full moon respectively. It was

named this because winter was said to begin from the first full moon of

the month.

*The Saxons had a name for October, too. Theirs was Wyn Monath,

which translated into “wine month” because it was the time of the year

for making wine.
