Labor Day sure does mark a big change for us here in the community. Fall events very quickly pop up, like this past Sunday afternoon when a good size "Right to Life" group turned out to share their beliefs. They lined both sides of the road from the bridge to the monument area. Once again, we need to be alert that school starts for children Wednesday, Sept. 7, so watch for those stopped school buses and note that the speed limit on the area in front of the school is posted at 35.
The annual School Gala will be held Tuesday, Sept. 14, starting at 5:30. The public and especially parents and family are urged to attend and show support to the children who attend this school. Sept. 14th is also Primary Day, and your vote is most important. The voting will be held in the Visitor's Center from 12-9 p.m. A reminder that you can only vote your registered party line at primary elections. So come vote, and then drop in to the School Gala.
There always seems to be a large number of yard sales Labor Day weekend. This year was no exception. It seems people are cleaning out before winter sets in.
The Heritage Society has another evening lecture planned for Friday, Sept. 10, 7 p.m. in the Visitor's Center, with David Glenn to speak on "A Revisionist View of the Battle of Valcour."
A couple more families have welcomed new additions, including grandparents Ann and Lauren Choate, who welcomed a grandson, Dominic Choate, born Aug. 27 to Alessandra and Daniel Choate in Florida. They are richly blessed with grandchildren, but I believe this is the first grandson to carry on the Choate name. Jim and Robyn Ashline welcomed a daughter, Lillian, on Aug. 27. Congratulations to both families.
Happy Birthday: Sam Marcotte 9/14, Richard Connor 9/16, Susan Swenson 9/19, Richard DeNeal 9/20, Lori Sayward 9/20. Happy Anniversary to Ruth and Harris Young 9/15.
