The Keeseville Free Library is having its opening reception for the annual Art Show and Sale this Thursday July 10 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Light snacks and drinks are provided, and the public is encouraged to attend. This year’s show features work by Gary Bezio, a well-known Adirondack furniture maker, and Lorna Hohn, a painter of Adirondack scenes. The show starts July 10 and runs until Aug. 7. This is an important fundraiser for our library so be sure to visit, view and, perhaps, purchase some unique art.
A reminder that every Monday during July the library is having its summer reading program for children. Fizz, Boom Read is the theme for this year’s program, and every Monday from 10 to 11 a.m. a scientist will be on hand to explore science in a new way with participants. This program is free, and local children are very much encouraged to attend and have fun.
The Keeseville Farmer’s Market has started. Check out all the great locally grown food and locally created goods available for a very reasonable price. The Farmer’s Market is behind the shops and Library on Front Street by the Ausable River’s edge in Riverside Park. You will find the vendors there from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Wednesday.
Coming soon July 26, Speedy Arnold will be speaking and performing at the monthly lecture series offered at the Anderson Falls Heritage Society in the Museum on 96 Clinton St. If you haven’t seen it, be sure to check out the great window display on Front Street featuring great photos and history of our area.
I had a tremendous indicator that it was time to mow my backyard when we observed a very tiny woodchuck munching away at the abundant and sadly, very tall foliage in my yard. Cute little guy (or gal), but I’d rather not have a yard full of holes. I have to admit, it was a lot of fun for my cat and I to sit in the window and watch him waddle around the yard from sunrise until sunset. Sure enough though after mowing the jungle, we haven’t seen him for a day, so we believe he has moved on to better feeding grounds. Our cat has gone back to her usual afternoon naps. Take care.
