The Wednesday March 12 meeting of the North Country Honor Flight was postponed along with pretty much everything else going on in the North Country due to Winter Storm Vulcan. I still cannot get used to winter storms having names like hurricanes. The meeting will now occur on Wednesday, March 26, of course weather permitting. One major item on the agenda is the potential for a Harley Davidson bike raffle. I will include more on this raffle if the proposal is accepted at the meeting.
The Keeseville United Methodist Church along with its sister church, Harkness United Methodist in Peru are hosting another evening with Ken Davis on video at the Harkness Fellowship Hall on March 22 from 6 to 8 p.m. “You Were Born to Live Fully Alive,” is the topic of this humorous and inspirational video. Participants are encouraged to bring a comfortable chair as they settle in for a lot of laughs and are on a journey that could change lives. All are invited to bring snack food, appetizers and desserts to enjoy.
Don’t forget to visit the Keeseville United Methodist Church Thrift shop located on the side of the Church on Front Street in Keeseville. The benefits from the shop help support many of the church’s activities and expenses.
One of the things that I want to discover is the proper spelling of “AuSable.” I make a habit of spelling it as one word with a capital “s” and have often seen it spelled that way. I have also seen it Ausable and Au Sable – one as one word no capital “s” and the other as two words. The word is French in origin and very appropriately means “river of sand.” This trinket of knowledge is just one mystery I hope to clear up during my next visit to the Anderson Falls Heritage Society when it reopens. I have an ever increasing list of questions.
What a surprising snow storm which after living in the North Country since the mid-eighties shouldn’t really be a surprise at all. After last week’s abundance of birds I’m back to a few as the seeds are all buried again. But the squirrels are still out there ever day plotting. Have a great week.
