The vote is in and as of the end of December 2014 Keeseville will be no more. My thanks to all the people who came out to vote on this important issue. It is now up to all of us to bring the dissolution to as smooth a transition as possible.
The new Stewart’s is open and the old building is already a thing of the past. I haven’t had a chance to stop in the new building but from passing it on the street it appears to be quite a tremendous asset to our community.
The North Country Honor Flight will have a movie showing on the SUNY Plattsburgh campus in Hawkins Hall this Saturday, Nov. 2, at 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now for ten dollars each at the mall near the Target entrance or check online at NorthCountryHonorFlight.org. Not only will the film “One Last Mission” be viewed but fifty-four World War Two veterans will be on stage with one very special guest. The new Honor Flight yearbook will also be available for purchase at the movie. More events are planned for next week’s Veteran’s Day weekend which I will include in next week’s column.
My congratulations to all local school athletes who are winding up their fall schedules and best of luck with the sectionals, states and national finals.
Spent the weekend preparing for the November first opening of NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, in which writers from across the globe, including me, commit to completing a 50,000 word novel in one month. I have my novel all plotted out and plan on using this week for some final background research. You can follow my progress as well as find links to my writing on my website at kylempage.wordpress.com.
Of course, enjoy the beautiful fall foliage. Wickham Marsh is gorgeous right now. Unbelievable, all the ducks and geese on Lake Champlain right now. Namaste’
