This past Sunday's anniversary of the Church of the Immaculate Conception was a great success on such a beautiful day. Representatives from the Oratoire St. Joseph in Montreal came down on spoke reflecting how our church was visited by Brother Andre who will be canonized this coming October in Rome. A saint actually visited our area and worshiped in one of our churches which is truly a unique thing. Many thanks to all who made the day such a great success. In several months a book will be available chronicling the history of the church.
Even though the Summer Reading Program has ended at the library Mary and staff are not sitting idle. The summer Art show is now going on in the main section of the library. Many different mediums and many different subject matters are available for purchase with prices ranging from a couple of dollars for small prints or ceramics to hundreds of dollars for larger paintings. Now is your chance to get some high quality art of your own while supporting our local artists and library. Even if not in the market at least stop in any time this month to view the spectacular artworks on display.
This Sunday August 22nd, our very active Chesterfield Fish and Game Club 3-D archery shoot. New members are always welcome, and who knows this could become a new exciting hobby for the entire family. Coming up next moth will be a large sports expo which I will report more on as it gets closer which again would make for a great introduction for interested locals.
This past week my son and I trekked from our home to the open court across the street from the current Keeseville Town offices and St. John's Church. This was our first time playing on the court. We were very impressed with the condition of the tennis court - it was in a lot better shape than I was I am afraid to say. The basket ball court beside it is also very well kept. I don't know who cleans or maintains this facility but what a wonderful thing for us to have. My son and I had a blast and followed it up with a walk downtown for a pizza lunch and pleasant walk across the pedestrian bridge back home. Again, it is the little things like this that make our community such a great place, and we are so glad to be living here and able to enjoy such great things.
