Anderson Falls Heritage Society/Museum recently received a monetary grant from The Glenn & Carol Pearsall Adirondack Foundation that they applied for recently. The grant request was for the purpose of purchasing supplies and equipment to interview the senior citizens of the Towns of AuSable, Chesterfield and the Village of Keeseville, for educational and archival purposes. Anyone wishing to be interviewed for this project, please call Anderson Falls Heritage Soc. President, Colin McDonough at 834-6032 or Secretary Betty Brelia at 834-7138 to make an appointment for the Spring 2014 interviews. They are also looking for pictures and documents pertaining to the history of Keeseville. They will be able to copy your photos at the time of the interview and give them right back to you while you watch. Your photos will never be out of your sight. AFHS is very appreciative of the grant which is underwritten by the Glenn & Carol Pearsall Adirondack Foundation, dedicated to improving the quality of life for year-round residents of the Adirondack Park; pearsallfoundation.org.
While waiting in the dark of morning last week for my ride to work I actually heard the yip of a coyote off in the woods by the AuSable River. I haven’t heard that sound since growing up in downstate New York where we had numerous coyote gangs running around all the time, such a unique and eerie sound. I’m also incredibly excited at the wealth of ducks, geese and loons all throughout the banks of Lake Champlain along Route 9. Such a sight makes for wonderful ride every day to work and further makes me love the North Country so very much.
