Our Free Library has a children’s reading this Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 10 a.m. The theme for this story time is Big Trucks on Parade. Their Story times are always wonderful. Don’t forget that the library also has Internet computers on hand for patron usage as well as ebooks that can be accessed and signed out as well. See MaryAnne for details.
I received a couple of emails this past week from the North Country Underground Railroad Historical Association. The new movie, “Twelve Years a Slave,” is now playing in Plattsburgh. Opening night the Association had a discussion following the film in the food court. The subject of the movie had a history in Peru. Don’t forget the Association is also having a final fundraiser of the year with the help of the Knights of Columbus with a Spaghetti Dinner on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 4 until 7 p.m. The dinner will be served at the Knights of Columbus Hall at 1435 Route 9 South in Keeseville. The dinner is $7 for adults and $3 for children for take-out orders please call 834-4689. Finally they will be hosting a special Local History Experience with a simulation at the Pok-o-MacCready Outdoor Education Canter in Willsboro on November 23rd at 6 p.m. for $5. Call 963-7967 for more details.
The Friends of the North Country located in downtown Keeseville by the water and foot bridge have recently set up a gorgeous new website at friendsofthenorthcountry.org. Any one in need of help or advise in all things related to housing matters should contact them for a conciliation. As I’ve mentioned before in this column, FONC is an incredible asset to our community.
Busy weekend of finally starting preparations for the winter time, still some boards to put up much to the regret of my cat. After this writing this column I’m back to NaNoWriMo writing and hopefully my goal of 20,000 words. Have a great week.
