Well the storm “Irene” did pay us a visit; the normally quiet Boquet River filled up quickly and overflowed its banks and flooded the Main Street. Many trees came down and caused road blockage and power outages, some for a few days. We truly take electric power for granted and we are lost when we no longer have it available. We are most grateful to the many utility, local and other workers that came to our rescue. Our storm damage could have been much worse when we watch the news reports of the damage around us.
Regardless, this was a big weekend for my family as annually between my two daughters and my birthdays only three days apart and the Labor Day holiday; the storm did not stop our getting together. My granddaughter Christie Flanagan also brought her friend Tim Cronin up to introduce him to the Adirondacks, together they all pitched in to assist in cleaning up our storm damage at our camp and celebrating our birthdays.
The Feeley family enjoyed the wedding of David & Terry Feeley on Friday, Sept. 2, at the Keeseville United Methodist Church. The Rev. Edie Poland performed the marriage and their reception was held in the couple’s back yard, congratulations.
Last Sunday’s performance of the Campbell Family gospel singers held their performance regardless of the start of the storm. A good size crowd came out to enjoy their music a rare treat.
Once again a reminder that school started this past week and we need to be mindful when driving in the school area or watch for school busses.
