Keeseville Column 8-20-11

— The Keeseville Free Library Local Artists Exhibition is in full swing now. Many different artists working in many different mediums are currently on display and available for purchase. The show will run the entire month of August and into September. The current hours for the library are Monday 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. with an hour closed for lunch from noon until 1 p.m.; Tuesday and Thursday 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.; Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. until noon and then from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.; closed Saturday and Sunday. September will again be the start of the winter hours. Also while at the library there are still books that can be purchased very inexpensively for one last read in the summer.

I received an email concerning an event further down the road from us in Essex but for the cause I am happy to mention it. The North Country S.P.C.A. is having a special benefit antique and tag sale event, Sunday Aug, 27, at the Whallonsburgh Grange Hall in Whallonsburg. Early birds with $20 admission get in at nine am then free general admission from ten until three pm and end with half price extravaganza from three until 5 p.m.

Another very worthy event is the ceremony at the Evergreen Cemetery coming up this month. As I mentioned last week the cemetery has more than fifty-five Civil War Veterans buried there. GAR (Grand Army of the Republic) markers are being placed on the gravesites of these Veterans.

A special short presentation of these markers will be held near the flagpole on Saturday, Aug. 27, at 9 a.m. in the Evergreen Cemetery located at Main St., Keeseville. Again my thanks to all those involved in this and those planning to attend. It is so easy for us to jump and acknowledge the tragedies occurring to our military personnel daily but completely forget the worthy souls from our past.

Enjoy the August weather and stay safe and well.
