Got an email from Danny Kaifetz, Director for the North Country Honor Flight. “The officers of the North Country Honor Flight wish to thank Gerry Morrow and the members of the Keeseville Knights of Columbus for putting on a great dinner for our World War II Veterans on Saturday, April 20. Over 175 turkey dinners were served and the food was excellent. Twenty five Honor Flight WW-II veterans were present and each received a huge ovation from the packed house. Joanna D’Ascoli sang the National Anthem and a special guest speaker Mimi Hutchins thanked the veterans for liberating her village in France when she was a five year-old girl during the war. To this day the American GI’s are still her heroes. Very moving story. Thank you to all who attended and for such excellent community support of our veterans. A great night!”
A reminder that CATS is pleased to announce the opening of its first ever Photo Contest – A View from the Trails. Participants should submit photographs taken from a CATS trail and include a short twenty-five to one hundred word caption for each picture. The deadline is May fifteenth with the first place prize being selected by the contest judge and a people’s choice winner based on online votes. First place earns $250 while the People’s Choice winner earns $100. Anyone interested in either event should get out CATS on their website champlainareatrails.com or call 962-2287.
Also we are getting closer to the anniversary for Cindy’s Cuts downtown on Front Street on Wednesday May first with a sale on that day. Of course while downtown check out the work on our new Bistro and Italian Restaurant both opening soon on Front Street.
The nicer weather is bringing out more of the neighborhood cats wandering around further from their homes which gives my very territorial cat something to huff at and try to intimidate. I love watching them stare at my cat in the window with a bemused look on their faces before they amble off not in the least bit bothered or threatened. She gives one more huff and angry thrash of her tail before she goes back to nap as a reward for a job well done protecting the house. Stay well. Namaste’
