Rock on in the village of Ballston Spa

You can sponsor a chair for $100, which gets you the cedar Adirondack rocking chair, a brass plate to be attached to the chair recognizing the donor, and a listing in a map guide showing the locations of the different chairs throughout the village. Everyone participating will be recognized in all publicity provided to the local community and at BSBPA events.

If you stop by Baum's business, The Coffee Planet, the central stop in the village's own little SoHo neighborhood, you can see the premiere Adirondack chair, filled with signatures of local business owners and employees.

Village Mayor John Romano said he looks forward to the chairs being added to downtown sidewalks and parks.

"I'm always looking for a good place to sit and people-watch," said Romano.

The Ballston Rocks committee will have approximately 70 cedar rockers available either unfinished or painted white, and is currently taking pre-orders. The chairs will be available for pick-up at the end of February. Chair order forms are available at Coffee Planet or order online at www.ballston.org. Chair pick-up location will be announced soon. All decorated chairs need to be returned for display by May 16.
