Summer is still about two weeks away but summer events kick off in Keeseville this week. There is absolutely no reason for people to be bored here this week. The library sale kicks off Friday, Spring Fling is Saturday, and the Methodist Church is having a Bake Sale on Saturday as well. I believe Mac's Market is having a customer appreciation day soon. Check the store for details.
Even though I have been here over a year, I am constantly discovering neat things around here. I guess I spend too much time in my home reading, writing, grading, lesson planning, etc.
My first neat discovery came in an e-mail from The Chesterfield Fish and Game Club which was featured in this paper a month ago. They have a Web Page at chesterfieldshootingrange.com. Sunday, June 13, there will be a 3-D Archery Shoot. Also, work days are being planned to improve the 155-acre facility and complete the 3-D course. This could be a great community building event. Come help out June 11, 12, 26 and 27. Part of the work days is to develop handicapped accessibility. It is a tremendous idea to have something different to offer for everybody.
I am very glad they are also focusing on youth activities. Kids need something constructive to do. Here is a chance for kids to get out from the video games and do it for real - legally even! This is great. I remember as a kid target shooting in my backyard with a BB gun. It was a lot of fun. Now here is my chance to get my son the same experience. My wife is excited about the archery aspect. There will be a special Father-child category on Father's Day.
My next discovery came from a great source of local information, Speedy Arnold, who I consider somewhat of a local Renaissance man (Store owner, assessor, artist, musician and I am sure other things I don't know about yet.) He is designing the T-Shirt for this year's Pig and Swig which will occur Father's Day. I will have more next week.
So the problem isn't what to do, it's which to do! Go out and have fun!
