Willsboro should be very proud of all the wonderful volunteers that have given of their time especially over the summer season. To show our appreciation a Volunteer Harvest Luncheon was given to the many volunteers. It was held at the Visitor's Center on Sunday, Oct. 4th at noon time. Lori Lincoln-Spooner, Joann Betters, Ashley Walker, Beverley Moran and Nancy Huestis planned and made the event very festive and a bountiful assortment of food was available.
We are also most appreciative of the many businesses that donated food for the event. They included the Sportsman's Dinette, Village Meat Market, Rick's Place, James Cider Mill, The Country Store, Willsboro Methodist Church, along with donations from those planning the event. To make it more thankful there were many door prizes, some from The Turtle Island Caf , Carriage House, Town of Willsboro, Sid Couchey, Ashley Walker and Lori Lincoln-Spooner. There were around 75 to 80 in attendance; it was a wonderful way to end the season.
Another great event was the celebration of Ethel Doyle's 95th Birthday; this was held in the home of her daughter and son-in-law, Ken & Ella Coonrod of Willsboro. Guest included Rolland Jr., Virgin & Barbara Doyle from Mechanicsville, Va., Dianne & Thomas Brooks from Glens Falls, Bud & Nancy Doyle, Michael, Patti & Sarah Doyle from Elizabethtown, Dan & Deborah Palmer & Briane Weber from Olmstedville, Patrick & Shana Doyle from Plattsburg, her sister Catherine Bigelow from Willsboro. Some of the other guests came from as far as Dannemora, Lake Clear, Burke, Malone, and Saranac Lake. The big surprise was when a group of Cumberland Bay Barbershoppers arrived to entertain. A great time was had by all and it was a most memorable party.
Hopeful you noticed that the Willsboro Flu Clinic had to be postponed this past week, as they did not receive their shipment of the vaccine, watch for the reschedule date. The Willsboro Methodist Church is most appreciative of all that have attended their monthly suppers, this past one will be their last one until Spring, the cooks need a rest.
The "Sharing Wisdom" Lecture Series at the Willsboro Central School is once again starting the new lectures on Wed. Oct. 7th at 7 p.m. at the School. The speakers will be Sid Couchey & Peter Paine sharing their thoughts and wisdom with the school and community.
The United Methodist Church's Christian Education after School program stated this past week. If you still have a child interested contact Barbara Feeley at 963-7185.
