This has been a most amazing week for me here in this community. Every day, I was able to experience another great reason to live here in Willsboro.
Last Tuesday late afternoon, my sister and I went to the new bowling lanes to listen to the musical group "The Green Beans," which consists of two brothers, Vinny and Joey Ferris. They write much of their own music, and Joey has even made some of the guitars they use. It was very enjoyable, and I am so proud of our local young men.
Before we left, the bowling alley filled up with many of the residents who receive services from the five group homes here in Willsboro. They were having such an enjoyable time together.
On Wednesday, some 25 of us went down on the point area to watch Marty Straton and her horse do a dancing routine of horse and ride. This also was a joy to watch. Watching the trees begin to change colors is always a thrill for me.
There were two local families that enjoyed weddings this past Saturday. Karen Ashline and Gary Lindsay were married, and their wedding party consisted of their children and grandchildren. Matt and Jessica Sayward joined together in marriage, also on Saturday. Congratulations to both couples.
Our community celebrated two big birthdays. Ethel Doyle was treated to a large gathering at the Senior Housing unit as she turned 96. Then, on Sunday, the United Methodist Church celebrated Florence LaMountain's 95th birthday. We were pleased to have her son, Reginald and his wife also join us.
The primary election has settled down some with the top vote going to Darren Darrah, and we have now learned that Robert Ashline, Scott Hommes and Lane Sayward have all dropped out of this year's running for town supervisor. Reminder: it is important for us to exercise our rights and get out to vote Nov. 2.
The last United Methodist Public supper for this season will be held Oct. 6, and will start serving its roast pork dinner at 4:30 p.m. There were so many great events in the Adirondack area this past weekend one would have to be a super person even to take in a few of the events.
