Coming up at the end of the month, Keeseville United Methodist Church is having a two-church supper. Next week I'll post more information about this event. I want to thank the Knights of Columbus for throwing such an incredible turkey supper this past weekend - my family and I had a great time.
I see new management has reopened the Army\Navy surplus store on Front Street. Glad to see another business back open on the street. I'll be sure to check it out very soon. I was also impressed to see a free wine tasting event sign on the Village Liquor Shoppe on the opposite end of the street. This isn't the first time I've seen this, and again, what a great idea as something different to do in our community. I'll try to stop in and get advance word on when the next such event comes up so I can get the word out about it here. The Elk's Lodge is now open for Monday night football - a true sign of fall.
Speaking of fall, my recent walk through the village was absolutely gorgeous. The recent drenching rain has swelled up the AuSable River making the walk across the pedestrian bridge a treat and all the fall colors everywhere are breathtaking. Some day I need to learn the history of the foot bridges as well as the staircase seemingly in the middle of nowhere that connects Pleasant Street with Ausable. It is so easy to take for granted what we have forgetting that it had to be put in place at some point. Even the simple fact of the name of our village is something to appreciate. This village was originally named Anderson Falls. While I know where our current name comes from, I'm curious how the change came about back in the early 1800s. As the leaves fall and things recede I can see more details on many houses and surroundings and there really is so much to appreciate in our community. All the stone work on so many houses is very unique and beautiful. Enjoy it all.
