Around the county

Another glorious August weekend just ended! If you enjoy walking, hiking, and enjoying the crisp North Country air, this was the weekend for you. Nights were beautiful for sleeping and the days warmed up enough to be more than pleasant!

Sympathy is extended to the family and friends of Dr. David Gorman. Dr. Gorman, a gynecologist in Plattsburgh and Malone, died this week in NYC. He was also known as being a two-time Mayors Cup Winner.

GED Classes will begin on Sept. 10 and will continue until Nov. 16 at CV_TEC One Worksource in Plattsburgh. The classes, which are free, will be held 2 days a week for 6 hours a day. Please call Debby at 561-0100, ext. 255 to register.

The Plattsburgh Rotary Club Park will be constructed behind Lake Forest on the site of the Old Base Marina. Gil Zahn, co-chairman of the Centennial Park Committee says there will be a picnic area and a pavilion. Both of our local Rotary clubs are very active within the area and do much good work within the community. As you may remember, the Sunrise Rotary just completed the Mayors Cup race.

Fall activities will be offered at the Senior Citizens Council on North Catherine Street, and they sound like fun to me! Included will be shuffleboard, a book club, and mah-jong. Call Amy Besaw at 563-6181 for further information.

Lets get political for a moment! Does anyone out there (and I know some people read this column!) Have an opinion on the Don Imus situation? It appears that he will be back on the radio this winter. I would love many responses. No names will be mentioned, but your comments will be! Come on, out there!! Get talking!!

The Battle of Plattsburgh celebration begins on Sept. 1 and will include speakers, a parade, fireworks, wreath-laying ceremonies, a bateau race, English Country dancing, and much, much more. The family-oriented event is much anticipated. Be watching for posters and articles in the media so you dont miss a thing!
