My heart goes out to all the families that lost so much during last Friday’s fire in Port Kent. Please contact the Red Cross, our very active Methodist Church, Catholic Churches, Knights of Columbus and the Elks to see what can be done for these families in their time of need. I’m very glad no one was hurt and thankful for the quick response by so many fire teams.
Received an email from MaryAnne Goff at the Keeseville Free Library in which she reports: “Feb. 1 is National take your child to the library day. From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday we will have a craft day. Stop in and Help Your child create valentines for all their friends, classmates and family. All materials supplied.” As I’ve reported in the past, I’m always impressed with the wonderful programs that MaryAnne presents.
Received a phone call from Alan Kirby that the American Bald Eagles are back. They can be found in all their amazing glory around Lake Champlain at AuSable Point. They are generally perched on the trees by the shoreline right on Route 9 early in the morning until around eleven, elven-thirty when they fly deeper into the campground area. If you have never seen them they are truly spectacular, large, majestic birds.
The North Country Honor Flight is looking for more World War II veterans to escort to the National World War Two Memorial in Washington D.C. They also need physical and financial help to keep this free for the well deserving veterans. Don’t forget the Honor Flight is now selling Raffle tickets for cash prizes during the month of March. Contact the Honor Flight through their website NorthCountryHonorFLight.org or by phone at 834-9901 or vising them at 1 Derek Drive in Keeseville.
My new bird feeder has survived the squirrels so far. I see a lot of rabbit tracks and even some deer tracks around my yard but they are keeping a low profile, much to the regret of my cat. Adirondack Hardware in Keeseville has a great selection of feeders and seed. We have many gorgeous birds in our community who love the seed. Enjoy your week.
