I received an email from Rick Weerts, Camp Director for the local Cub Scouts. Cub Scout Pack 5 will be holding a recruiting event at Keeseville Elementary School on Monday, Sept. 16, at 6 p.m. Interested families can stop by and learn about all of the benefits of joining Scouting. There will also be information on Scouting available at the upcoming open houses for Keeseville Elementary (Sept. 4, 6 p.m.) and AuSable Forks Elementary (Sept. 17, 6 p.m.).
This Friday, Sept. 6, and Saturday, Sept. 7, Adirondack Hardware in downtown Keeseville will be hosting their 13th annual Energy Expo in their store on Front Street. The Expo will be from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. The cold months are coming so now is the perfect time to prepare and gain knowledge for wise energy usage.

Don’t forget the multimedia art show which is running now through Sept. 12 at the Keeseville Free Library. As always I was very impressed with all the great artwork – photographs, woodwork, pottery, and other media. A wonderful show highlighting the great talent we have in our community.
Been putting more seed out lately as my small furry or feathered friends are starting to stock up for the long North Country winter. It never ceases to amaze me how much seed a chipmunk can stuff in its cheeks. Stay safe all.
