I’m very happy to report that the Anderson Falls Heritage Society will be opening on April 15 from then until late Fall. Their hours will be every Tuesday from 9:00 a.m. until noon and every Thursday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. From their membership form Anderson Falls Heritage Society was founded in 1989 by a group of citizens dedicated to collecting and preserving the history of Keeseville and the surrounding area; recording for the present citizens of all ages, the activities of our forefathers in their quest for “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.” They are located at 96 Clinton Street in Keeseville. The public is welcome and admission is free. I greatly encourage people to stop in and explore the amazing historic collection that they have.
Champlain Area Trails is teaming up with the Essex Inn, Westport Hotel & Tavern and other local businesses to host the North Country’s first “inn-to-inn” hike on Saturday, May 3. The 14-mile “Grand Hike” will be on CATS hiking trails and scenic back roads from Westport to the Essex Inn where there will be a “block party” celebration featuring the Wadhams Waddlers band, restorative yoga and chair massage provided by Lake Champlain Yoga & Wellness, and a photo booth to commemorate the event. The hike starts at 9 a.m. at the Westport Hotel where breakfast is available at 7:30 a.m. and check-in begins at 8 a.m. Participants can park there or in Essex where a free shuttle will take them to Westport. The block party begins at 5 p.m. in the Essex Inn courtyard. Everyone is welcome for the hike and block party, which non-hikers can attend. There is a registration fee of $5/person or $10/family for the hike. The block party is free. To preregister go to the CATS website ChamplainAreaTrails.com or call 962-2287.
Don’t forget the Chesterfield Rod and Gun Club will be hosting their annual Sportman’s Show Saturday, April 26, from nine until four pm and Sunday from nine until three.
