Quiet week here in Keeseville as the summer winds down and everyone gets back into school or fall mode.
I would like to thank everyone involved in making the Keeseville Parish Picnic such a fun success this past Saturday. My family and I had a wonderful time as always with such great food and company.
The Elks Lodge is hosting their Annual Clam Bake this weekend, please call the Lodge at 834-2072 for the exact times. This is another event that is always very well done in our local community.
This Saturday is the weekend of the short ceremony honouring the civil war veterans that are buried in the Evergreen Cemetery starting at 9 a.m. This is another event that a lot of thought and hard work by many individuals came into play to make this a very special moment.
The Library art exhibition and sale is in full swing with representation by numerous local artists working in a variety of mediums. Even without the intention of purchasing any of the fine pieces it is still quite a joy to stop in and just observe all the talented work of our community members.
A while ago I mentioned that Keeseville has a volunteer emergency response group dedicated to being organized in case of general emergency. This is a group dedicated to having a plan of action if an emergency strikes that affects numerous community members. They are prepared to feed and provide help in times of need. This is a tremendous asset to our community but being voluntary it to can use help. Please if interested contact the village office at 834-9059. They can direct you to either getting in touch with or having the group contact you. Again my thanks to those sacrificing their time in order to provide me with a safer community to live in – it is very much appreciated.
Stay safe and well everyone and enjoy the rest of the summer.
