Sunday I took a rainy walk over the foot bridge and around parts of Keeseville. Once again the AuSable is getting pretty wild. I wish the best to all who live in the lower areas. If I hear of any needs or good deeds I will gladly put them here in the column.
Keeseville is looking very lush and green. Many take great pains to making their properties look very nice and appreciate this.
Again, the paving stone contest is fully under way. These stones will be on permanent display over by the new Office Building and there is plenty of room for many stones. One thing that led to this contest was the desire to have a contest that renters or apartment dwellers could have fun participating in besides just the home owners who have gardens. I think that this is a great idea and strongly encourage everyone to join in on the fun. All you need to do is get some wood that you can make a frame to pour cement into so it will end up 2 feet by 2 feet. You can get these as well as great tips from our own Adirondack Hardware. As the cement is drying, put things into it or etch or paint your designs onto it. This is something a single person could do or couples or even whole families. Remember you will be creating a legacy that will always be on display for all to see for many years to come. It is a very unique opportunity.
The Village Office is very interested in improving the quality of our lives here and I encourage everybody to get involved both by supporting the Office and its ideas as well as giving them your own ideas to improve our community.
I wish the best to all our college students as this is the last week and already we are fast approaching the last month of regular school. Time does seem to fly.
Stay safe and happy everyone.
