The fall season is still full of meaningful activities. The election process is now behind us, there are still many absentee ballots that need to be counted this next week. That count will tell us the definite winner of the Supervisor's race here in Willsboro, the first count was very close. The next big event here is the program and meal for the local veterans. This is the sixth year that this celebration will have taken place at the Willsboro United Methodist Church. We are happy to announce that the other local churches have joined in to be an active part of this special celebration. This year they will feature three speakers, the posting of the colors, and a nice display of pictures of many of those that have served in the military.
The next big event comes on the weekend before Thanksgiving. The United Methodist Church will hold their annual Holiday Sale and Soup & Bread Luncheon on the weekend of Nov. 19-20. The sale will start on Friday evening from 4-7 p.m. and then on Saturday from 10-3, with the lunch starting at 11 a.m. This year, we will have an added attraction of having a previously owned Sweater table along with pocket books. They also feature a baked goods table, homemade candy table, craft table, Granny's Attic and a used Christmas table. Also this year, Marty Stratton will join us to sell her books and autograph the copies. The same weekend the Catholic Church will hold their Holiday Sale and Lunch on Saturday, not sure of all the details so look for their posters. The same Saturday, Nov. 20, the annual Farmer's Market & Craft Show will be held at the Willsboro School from 10 to 3; many local & Area craft vendors will be their with their special crafts. This has now become as busy a weekend as the first weekend of December when many other area groups have their annual sales. Thanksgiving is a time for family and friends to enjoy a special meal together, there will be an Ecumenical Thanksgiving service at 7 p.m. at the Willsboro Congregational Church.
Then we hope interested senior citizens will come join us Nov. 30 at the United Methodist Church at 2 p.m. to go over our options for Health Care Coverage. A Reprehensive from the office of the aging will share our options in case we need to make any changes by early December. This is open to any interested persons. Happy Birthday to: Chester Halen 11/16, Bernice Shedd 11/17, Ginger LaPine 11/17.
