What a great fun-filled weekend we had this past weekend here. Thank you to all who made everything such a great success.
First up, a quick heads up this is will be the first billing cycle here in Keeseville that will have the water meters rather than a flat rate as before. This means rather than getting a bill the first week of August, it won't be until next month now and then every three months thereafter. Any questions should be directed to the village office at 834-9059. I am always so pleased with the friendly, pleasant response and great information I get whenever I call. Thank you very much; it is greatly appreciated.
The summer "Make a Splash: Read" free program at the Keeseville Free Library is winding down with just two more events to go. This Monday, Aug. 9, from 10 to11 a.m., the program will be "An Ocean of Fun" - all about the ocean and what lies beneath the surface with games and giveaways. Next week, for the final event Monday, Aug. 16, will be a performance by Speedy Arnold, also from 10 to 11 a.m. This will be a nice warm up for his upcoming opening performance at the Gibson Brothers concert which I will have more about next week. Any questions concerning the library program should be directed to the library at 834-9054.
Finally, we are a weekend away from the big 175th anniversary of the Immaculate Conception Church. A lot of hard work has gone into making the church look very respectable for its age. Gates have been painted, the front statue has been cleaned and painted, the balcony area has been restored, and still more. All the workers have been cheerful and hard at work to make this historic landmark such a beautiful sight. On Sunday, Aug. 15, at 2 p.m. there will be the special mass with Bishop Terry LaValley to officially honor the anniversary of the third oldest in the diocese. A huge thank you to all the laborers who have done so much! Great job, everybody.
