I don't know about you, but eighty-plus degree weather really doesn't make me think of back to school - but that is North Country weather for you. Students are off to college starting this week, and our youngsters are hitting the books next week. Good luck to all students in all your academic endeavors.
Another juxtaposition to the weather is the fact that the Keeseville Free Library will be starting its fall/winter hours the day after Labor Day, Tuesday, Sept. 7. The hours will now be Mondays 1-7 p.m.; Tuesdays and Wednesdays 10 a.m. to noon and then 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.; closed Thursdays; open Fridays from 1 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and closed on Sundays. The current Art Show will continue to run until September tenth so make sure to stop in and see all the great local art work on display and for sale. Again, a special thanks to Mary and her staff for all the great activities they provided for us all summer long.
The Keeseville United Methodist Church will start its Sunday School program again in September at 9:30 on Sundays at the Church located right in the downtown. September also is the month of a food drive collection during the communion on the Sept. 5 Mass.
The Chesterfield Fish and Game Club will have their tremendous Sportman's Expo next weekend. More on this in the next column.
Down the road from us, AuSable Forks will have its annual Labor Day celebration Sept. 6 with the parade at 10 a.m. and then games, fun and food all afternoon with 2 p.m. bingo and raffle drawings at 6 p.m.
Soon enough, it will be time to enjoy the splendor of our community as the leaves change their colors to the fall look that will soon enough be upon us. Enjoy the many-faceted weather that the North Country gives us.
