Keeseville Column

Fairly quiet week with nice weather. Both the Lake and surrounding mountains are gorgeous right now, definitely worth a drive to see as well as all the ice still on Ausable Chasm. I have greatly enjoyed watching the ducks on the Lake just as the sun is coming up over the mountains in Vermont during my morning commute.

Two events with 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. Secondly, the other very big fund raiser for the Flight is the film showing of “Honor Flight – One Last Mission” a feature length movie be presented April 6, 7 p.m. at Hawkins Hall Auditorium at SUNY Plattsburgh. Adult admission is six dollars and tickets are available at the Angell College Center or online at NorthCountryHonorFlight.org. A very special event at this performance will be having all twenty-eight World War II Veterans that will be taking the Honor Flight on stage together for the first time ever. This will be an incredible, moving event.

Mac’s Ice Cream stand is open with michigans, burgers and other assorted foods as well as ice cream of course with new hard flavors this year. Don’t forget with the upcoming holidays and special occasions that they can make custom frozen ice cream cakes as well.

Enjoy and have a great week.
