Keeseville Column

Another busy week in Keeseville with the second North Country Honor Flight flying out of Clinton County Airport on a Pen Air charter flight with sixteen World War II veterans from our area and sixteen volunteer Guardians on Saturday, June 8. Please join them at the Airport at 8:00 a.m. for a big send off and departure Ceremony.

The Keeseville Elks Lodge #2072 is about to kick off its second year of Free Family Movie Nights. The first night for this year is Friday, June 7, with “G-Force.” Free movies will occur the first and third Fridays in June, July and August. Movie nights are open to the public and free. Please call contact the Lodge at 834-2072 for the starting time.

The Elks will also be having their annual Flag Day Service on June 15 at the Veterans’ Park in Keeseville weather permitting at 10 a.m. In case of rain it will be held at the Elk’s Pavilion in the back of the Lodge. This is a free event and the public is encouraged to attend. Last year’s Service was wonderful.

Front Street is all the more beautiful now with flowers planted along the street. Mary King of the Village Board organized a group of volunteers and received donated plants. Mary Anne Goff and Judy McCusker planted beautiful day lilies at the Veterans Statue Park, just in time for Flag Day Service! The Farmer’s Market is starting again with a big banner along Front Street advertising it with thanks to Bonnie DeGoyer of AARCH and Gerald Morrow of Chesterfield Town. The Market will be open from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. each Wednesday starting June 19 through Aug. 28.

Kingsland Square Bistro is now open serving sandwiches, coffee and juice among other tasty treats on Front Street. Visit the Bistro’s blog at kingslandsquarebistro.blogspot.com for an amusing trek through the trials and tribulations of opening. I very much look forward to visiting the bistro when I get a chance.

So much going on I never get to mention my cat or feathered and furry friends or the fact that I finally mowed my lawn for the first time last week. Visit me at kylempage.wordpress.com for the latest on my writing and animals. Enjoy all the fun activities.
