Keeseville Column

First up congratulations to the Lady Patriots for a remarkable season. You all should be very proud of your accomplishments.

In a very quick change Wilson Farm Convenience store up at the traffic light on Main Street and Pleasant Street in Keeseville is gone and Stewart’s is moving in its place. Work appears to be going very quickly.

Even with snow in the forecast I know spring is coming soon as the marque at Mac’s Ice Cream Stand says “Coming Soon.” The initial hours will be eleven until eight and the first special flavor will be Maple. Welcome back Mac’s; I hope you had a great restful winter.

More news on the National Honor Flight. Tickets are now on sale at McSweeney’s Restaurant on Route 3 in Plattsburgh or by phone (834-9901) or by via the website NorthCountryHonorFlight.org for a fund raising home made lasagna dinner at the Church of the Nazarene located at 187 Broad Street in Plattsburgh on March 28. In addition to meeting World War II veterans there will be a 50/50 raffle, door prize and memorabilia auction. Proceeds will go to help fund the upcoming Honor Flights for our veterans. Come out to enjoy a great meal and help a wonderful cause. McSweeney’s is sponsoring this event for the National Honor Flight.

No eagle this week but plenty of ducks and Canadian Geese are back as well. Also seeing more bird activity in my backyard which always makes my cat very happy, with the usual assortment of chickadees, cardinals, blue jays and wood doves. This week I’ve also had appearances by a cute little juvenile reddish squirrel that my girlfriend finds adorable. As soon as the weather warms up more I’ll open the window which will thoroughly delight my cat.

Enjoy and have a great week.
