"On behalf of the entire Cohen family, THANK YOU for your hard work, dedication, keen intellect, outstanding craftsmanship, good humor, collaborative spirit, and attention to detail. It was truly awesome and humbling to watch all of you in action and to work side-by-side with you these past 6 weeks... Your work—your brutally hard and demanding work—has saved and preserved the building for its second century and beyond. I’m going to have the team photo printed, framed, and mounted in a prominent place in the Boathouse." - With warmest regards, M.T., Upper Saranac, NY
