Two very active organizations in Keeseville are having meetings and elections that will help guide the future for both important groups to our community.
First, the Chesterfield Fish and Game Club just this past week held nominations for Club Officers. Now would be a great time to get involved with the Club as a member. This Club has numerous events throughout the year for all the members of our community including shoots and the recent Sportsman’s show. Mike Boutin is the President of the Club which can be reached through its website at http://www.chesterfieldshootingrange.com/ or by phone at 946-7617.
Secondly, just this Wednesday, Oct. 12, at 4:30 p.m., the Adirondack Architectural Heritage hosted a meeting on the revitalization of Keeseville. With the recent damage from Irene as well as a general positive sense of community I get from meeting residents this is a very important meeting for Keeseville. Even if this news comes late I encourage everyone interested in helping Keeseville to get in touch with AARCH.ORG. Steven Engelhart is the Executive Director. Interested parties can contact the organization via its website at www.aarch.org, by visiting its offices at 1745 Main Street, Keeseville, or by calling 834-9328 or 834-9225.
The fall foliage is coming on strong and the birds are heading south. This is a great time to be walking around as the colors are spectacular and there are many animals scurrying about preparing for winter. I still don’t have the amount of birds at my feeders as before Irene but I do have some activity to keep my cat entertained.
I’ve only lived in Keeseville for three years now having come from apartment living in Plattsburgh, and I greatly appreciate the relaxed atmosphere and friendliness I find no matter where I wander. It is great to see the recent work at Jaycee Park, the incredible activities put on by our Keeseville Free Library and the work of the two above mentioned organizations. There are a lot of positive things going on in our community. All it takes is people to help revitalize Keeseville. Take care and stay well.
