Honor Flight for the flight of a lifetime | Keeseville Column

I noticed that last week’s Keeseville column and the Westport column were switched. My apology for this confusion. I hope everyone was able to figure out what was going on and read the columns properly.

Received an email from Danny Kaifetz, Director of North Country Honor Flight, who reports: “In 2013 we flew FIVE flights and 82 WWII veterans to their Memorial in Washington DC, and for 2014 we have SEVEN flights scheduled for over 100 veterans, plus three flights planned for Vermont. Our first flight out of Plattsburgh is already full, and we are signing up WWII veterans and Guardians for the two June flights, as well as four fall flights in September and October. More than anything else we need assistance finding more of our senior WWII veterans, in all five counties from Whitehall to Watertown. Please let us know if you are aware of any WW-II veteran who would like to be on the Honor Flight for the flight of a lifetime, all expenses paid. Call Danny Kaifetz at 518 834-9901 or visit our website at NorthCountryHonorFlight.org. We will be holding our first meeting of 2014 on Wednesday, Jan. 15 6 p.m. at Keeseville VFW Post 1505. Dinner is served and the public is always welcome. New volunteers are always in demand, please consider joining our organization. Thank you.” I strongly encourage people to join in on this very worthy cause, a lot of time, energy and money is needed to achieve this mission.

All the ice and rain did bring some water to my basement but very little, so it was quite manageable. Now the squirrel on the other hand, I stopped up and taped the one hole he made in my backyard birdfeeder. Saturday, I found more plastic pieces on the ground, and sure enough another large hole has been chewed into the tube just above my tape job. I think I’m going to have to develop battle plans with my cat who gets to watch all this from the safety of the bedroom window. Fun times.
