Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there. Being a dad is one of my favorite hats to wear. There is plenty to do this weekend here in Keeseville for the entire family, some of which rightfully will spoil the fathers present.
First, Mac's Ice Cream will have a Father's Day special and as it is supposed to be hot; that might be a nice way to cool off.
The Chesterfield Fish and Game Club will have a 3-D archery shoot on Sunday, June 20 from 8:30 a.m. until well into the afternoon at 359 Green Street, Clintonville. In honor of Father's Day, there will be a special Father-Child competition category. In case you work up an appetite, hamburgers and hot dogs will be available as well.
The day also marks the date for the second annual Pig n' Swig. The event is run by the Keeseville Elks as a means to benefit many charities at once. The Elks major charities are New York State veterans and Cerebral Palsy as well as many area youth programs, Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets, and scholarships for area students. Any money spent at this event will benefit our community in many different ways.
Motorcycle enthusiasts are invited to participate in a ride from the Keeseville Elks Lodge located at 1 Elks Lane to the Ticonderoga Elks Lodge and back for a benefit of the Veterans. Last year had an impressive turnout and fund raising for a first-time event. Area car enthusiasts are also invited to show off their cars. Trophies will be awarded to both cars and motorcycles based on voting by the attending public, so even if you aren't entered, you can have fun voting on your favorites. Registration for the bike rally runs from 9-10 a.m. Car competition registration will be from noon until 2 p.m. A horseshoe tournament will start at 2:30. Food, which will include BBQ Pork and Chicken as well as hamburgers and hot dogs and assorted salads, will be served and awards announced between 4 and 5 p.m. Live Music at the event will be provided by "Zip City."
Should be a great Father's Day for everybody. Have a great time.
