This original piece by Hank Latino is being raffled to support the Lake Neatahwanta cleanup effort.

Love “funkadelic” art? Chester’s Bar and Grill in Fulton is currently raffling off a piece of shell art to raise money for the Lake Neatahwanta Revitalization Project. The piece is a Hank Latino original, and was donated for the cause.

The Lake Reclamation Project has been in the works for many years in Fulton, and according to Granby Town Supervisor, Edward Williamson, things could be picking up again soon. The Reclamation Committee has been out talking to people who live near the lake, especially in the Tannery Creek area. There is also a meeting scheduled for Thursday, March 21st at the Granby Community Center at 5:30pm, where Williamson hopes permits will be finalized by the DEC.

Raffle tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. Any other donations will also be accepted. “We’re just trying to help out the community,” said T.J. Stuber, who runs Chester’s with his son, Patrick. The drawing will be held on Memorial Day.
