How fast Halloween seemed to creep up on some of us, then the next two major holiday's are not far behind, not sure why but it seems as I grow older the calendar year seems to fly past more quickly. The school children will be having their little parade on Oct. 30 it starts at 9 a.m. they go over to the Senior Housing and then to the fire hall and back to school, they enjoy having people come out to watch them in costume.

Congratulations to the Ferris Brothers for the additions to our business community. The new expanded offerings at the bowling alley and the TOTO Bar, along with the new sign are a great addition to our community, the building has multiple uses. It is sad to learn that the Grocery Store downtown will be closing this weekend. The McKenna's truly tried to make this service available to us as a community, but local support just did not make it possible for them to continue the full line of groceries. They are continuing to try to make an expanded grocery line available at the Country Store; a community truly needs a grocery store so hopeful that we continue to support them in this new adventure. Many thanks for your efforts.
Reminder of how important it is for us all to get out and vote on Nov. 3, the polls are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. held at the Willsboro Visitor's Center. As responsible citizens we need to get out and vote our choice with a goodly number of the population of the community they serve.
