Another quiet week in Keeseville as the village is getting ready for the fall season. Leaf pick-up will be happening throughout the village during October. The recent water bill had a flyer which posted the dates and times and I will report this as we get closer to October. Those who noticed a slight increase in the bill should know that this is the month for the annual fees to be tacked on to the bill. I am impressed with how nice the village looks during my walks after all the damage caused by Irene.
I understand that the work on Jaycee Park is coming along nicely as well. Anyone interested in helping out should contact the Village Office for more information.
The Keeseville Free Library is on the Winter Hours schedule now and things are quieting down after the busy summer. I found I switched and copied the wrong hours last week my sincere apologies for any confusion. The correct Winter hours are Monday 1 to 7 p.m.; Tuesday and Wednesday 10 a.m. until noon and 1 until 5 p.m.; Friday from 1 to 5 p.m.; Saturday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and closed Thursday and Sunday. Don’t forget that the library has many more resources beyond books such as a Wii system and many online databases for use on the computers located onsite.
Keeseville Elementary School has a School Board of Education meeting on Sept. 21. I also want to thank the Family School Association who picked up all the school supplies for all the students. In these economically rough times every little bit helps and this is a wonderful gesture.
The Elks is having their annual Ball on October 4th and tickets are now on sale at the Lodge which is next to the Church of Immaculate Conception just up the hill from downtown..
I have seen signs but have not had a chance to visit Clover Mead Farm and their new sandwich shop or the Friday only chicken and ribs BBQ from Harold but this would make a nice fall drive before the winter season.
Stay safe and well and enjoy the beautiful of our backyards.
