Willsboro got the Holiday season off to a great start. Saturday Nov. 19 & 20th many shoppers came to enjoy the three Holiday sales and lunches being offered in town. It is reported that the movie "Safety Last" shown last weekend at the local school by the Champlain Valley Film Society was a real fun event. This was a silent Comedy with the expertise of pianist Ben Model, playing through out the film. Then once again the area churches joined together to offer a Thanksgiving Evening Service this past Sunday evening. You should watch for the Paine Library holiday offerings. Many families had some large gatherings for the Thanksgiving meal.
The Holiday season continues on this weekend with more opportunities to make the rounds and visit other seasonal sales. Saturday Dec. 4th the Willsboro Congregational Church will be holding their annual Christmas Greens Tea and sale. It will start at 9 a.m. and runs until 3 p.m.. They feature a food table, collectibles, crafts and a soup & sandwich lunch. Downtown Essex comes alive with the Christmas Spirit with the United Methodist Church's sale and soup lunch. Shops will be open and a lot going on all day. The Grange Hall in Whallonsburg will be hosting another Holiday Sale. So everyone is invited back to make the rounds and meet up with friends and have a most enjoyable time. It is hard to believe but Christmas is just around the corner.
