Mr. and Mrs. Arthur J. Steneri of Woodbury are staying at the Hotel Saranac for a few days. Mr. Steneri attended high school on the site of the hotel many years ago and recalls helping to move the laboratory equipment to the new high school which is now the Petrova School.

He was a member of the Saranac Lake Boys' Band, and his father, Philip L. Steneri, was director. The senior Mr. Steneri also directed a girls' [”Mandolin Club"], and Mr. Steneri brought a memento of that organization along with him, a program of the Girls' Community Club of Saranac Lake of which the Mandolin Club was a part, formed in 1920 and filled a long felt need to supply a meeting place for the young girls and young women of the community." Mrs. Clarence Moody was president. Mr. Steneri has not been in Saranac Lake for 40 years.
