November is still proving to be a busy month of special activities. The Willsboro Central School Drama Club will be presenting the production of "Damn Yankees" this weekend, Nov. 12-14 starting at 7:30 p.m. and then on Nov. 15 at 2 p.m. These young students always do a wonderful job, and I hope, as a community, we support their efforts.
The Willsboro Congregational Church is presenting an interesting program on Sat. Nov 14 at 7 p.m. Peter Panagore will share his experiences in a dramatic ice climbing, namely a 500 foot pitch adjacent Jasper, Alberta Canada. He sounds like he has an inspirational story to share with those in attendance. Another first is the special sale by local artist & farmers that will be held at the Willsboro School Gym on Sat. Nov 14 throughout the day.
The local film society has done an out standing job of not only presenting great movies right here in our area, but they have an added feature of having people involved with the movie subject introduce the movie and share some interesting things surrounding the movie being shown. The next movie will be on Sat. Nov. 21 at the Willsboro School, showing "Every Little Step" starting at 8 p.m.
The Willsboro United Methodist Church for the fifth year had a special program and meal for our Willsboro/Reber Veterans. This is a very impressive way to show our thanks to those that have served in our military over the years. Another special event took place at the Methodist church this past Sunday as they dedicated a Yamaha Keyboard in Memory of Lucille Richard. She loved music and this will assist the church to carry out their ministry with music in places where the large organ cannot go. Many members of her family were there to share the joy of the occasion.
Congratulations to all the winners in the Elections this past week. There are still a couple too close to call until after the absentees are counted in about a week. Don't forget that all election signs should be down by this weekend.
There are some upcoming meetings you might be interested in attending. The Willsboro School Alumni group will be meeting at the Visitors Center on Monday, Nov. 16 at 7 p.m., they are always looking for interested persons to come share ideas for next year's activities. So feel free to drop in or contact Larry Allen with any good ideas. Another hard working group are those on the Community Planning & Revitalization Projects, Plans and Initiatives Inventory. They have had several planning meetings to collect what the community wants to see for the future, but they still need volunteers to come and pull these ideas into a constructive plan. They welcome any interested persons to join them on Tues. Nov. 17th, at 6:30 in the Visitor's Center
Our sympathy is extended to the family of Veletia Shepard as she passed away this past week after a fall in her home and the complications this brought about. Rita Farrell will be having a birthday on Feb. 19. As she is mostly house bound, it would be nice to flood her with cards. John Remancus recently enjoyed a visit from his daughter Christine, along with her husband and son from Massachusetts.
Happy Birthday to Nicholas Arnold 11/13, Gretchen Boardman 11/13, Chester Halen 11/16, Bernice Shedd 11/17, Ginger LaPine 11/17, Rita Farrell 11/19, Lucas Cross 11/21.
