It was right around Thanksgiving of 2001 when my grandfather, James L. Kirk, passed away. Now that my husband and I live in his former home not a day goes by that I don’t think of him in some way, especially during the holidays.
First of all, a sincere "thank you" to Mr. Bill Kowal for his kind comments on his applauding Dianne Sefcik, myself, and others for our "civic efforts and concerns regarding hydraulic fracturing in Westerlo and the surrounding area." I have taken this as a compliment and it is greatly appreciated.
Altamont Community Tradition is pleased to announce that, this year, on Dec. 15, in addition to all other Victorian Holiday events, there will be a Holiday Pet Costume Contest sponsored by Altamont Country Values (Agway).
