We are really into winter, snow, real cold weather, some of our major holiday's are behind us and now all we have to do is enjoy. I need to send a reply to my friend Christine, Yes, for many of us winter is one of our great seasons. Regardless of the real cold weather we had a great turn out for this past Sunday's service at the Willsboro United Methodist Church. A great worship group from Keeseville and Harkness came and conducted the praise service. This group is made up of adults and youth, with several youth playing instruments. It was wonderful and very meaningful the Psalms33 group is outstanding. Our Pastor celebrated his birthday on Tuesday, Jan. 25, some 45 of his congregation, fellow pastors and a few special friends came together at the Sportsman's Diner for a supper meal together. We are most grateful to Darren Darrah for making this possible on a night when they are usually closed.
The New Beginnings group has the 2011 schedule available which outlines where we will meet each month this coming year. If you are interested in joining us give Janice Allen a call to get your copy. If you find the winter a time that you would like to get out with other people, I remind you that a group of local quilters meet each Monday Morning at 10 a.m. at the Methodist Church to do handwork together. They just enjoy getting together and do a variety of projects, for more information call Grace Uhlig 963 7015. We also note that a similar groups from the Bank meet once a month at the same church on Saturday and they are enjoying the space to spread out.
There seems to be a lot of sickness around the community, flu season is upon us, all are urged to be sure to have your flu shot. They are still available and it is not too late to get yours.
I am very proud of my son Larry Allen as he assisted a women that was involved in a car
accident over in Vermont. He was on his work related run to pick up the supply of milk for Hood, when he came upon the accident. He could have moved on, but did not, instead stopped to lend a hand.
