Anderson Falls Heritage Society is presenting Roger Harwood speaking on 20th Century Camps on Valcour Island Thursday July 18 at 7 p.m. at the Society Museum located at 96 Clinton Street.

Don’t forget the Farmer’s Market every Wednesday from nine until one. Many local artisans have their beautiful work for sale as well as great fresh food. The Market is by the river behind The Library on Front Street.

“Dig Into Reading” is still going on at the library on Mondays at 10 a.m. This is a free event with readings and activities for young story lovers. While at the library be sure to visit the ongoing art show and sale featuring the photographs of Lynn Manning in a show entitled “Room for Views” running now through Aug. 8.

Friday, July 19 will be the next family movie night at the Elk’s Lodge. Snacks can be purchased from 7:30 and the show starts when it gets dark enough.

The second annual Freedom Festival of Music will be Thursday, August first at the AuSable Chasm Pavilion. Featured performers include local favorites Roy Hurd, Lita Kelly, Speedy Arnold, The Lake Champlain Gospel Choir and Charlie Stone and Split Rock. All proceeds will go to benefit the North Star Underground Railroad Museum, which is located just down the hill from the festival site. Admission is $7 for adults and $2 for children under 12. The festival is scheduled from 4:30 to 8:30, again on Thursday, August first. Tickets may be purchased at Arnold’s Grocery in Keeseville, Bob’s Music and the Corner Bookshop both in Plattsburgh and at the North Star Museum or at the event itself.

Mowed my lawn again which I always take as an accomplishment juggling between work, the heat and the rain. I’ve seen more deer and small mammals lately as they are getting away from the increasing rivers, streams and wetlands. The Osprey is still in its nest on 87 right by exit 34, absolutely a gorgeous bird. Enjoy and stay safe.
