Winter is not completely gone, and spring only gives us a little teaser with a couple of warm days , and then back into the deep freeze. A great deal of the snow around here has gone down a lot, and that is a relief for many that their roofs will not cave in. It is hard to believe that the Lenten season will start in only a couple of weeks. Things remain busy around here, great movies every other week, all the special events at the Whallonsburg Grange Hall, events at school, the great Coffee House specials and so on.. The big spring event is the 6th annual Diner Theater and supper coming up at the Willsboro United Methodist Church on two weekends in March. A group of fun loving members of the church each year put together a great program that will keep you laughing, and you can also enjoy a good meat loaf meal all for only $10 per person. This is called "March Madness" and will be on the weekends of March 19 & 26 starting a 5 p.m.. Tickets are going quickly and more are available for the 26th. Call Janice Allen (963 8912) if you are looking to save a place, seating is limited and when tickets are all sold that will be it.
Thanks for making a 90 year old gentleman very happy, that would be Bud Cushing as he received many birthday cards and some special telephone calls. His family called to share just how much this was appreciated. Many of the summer people that have summer homes down near the bay area, have enjoyed seeing the animals at the Cushing farm over the years. I learned this past week the Willsboro & Essex Catholic churches could be some of the churches that will not be able to have a priest in the near future that would be a big loss for these two communities. Plans are starting to make some expansion to the community room area at the Senior Housing units. Reports are also around that work will be starting on the old school building this spring. So as the community is look positive in the days ahead, we really need many volunteers that can help us to keep our heritage places open. Ask yourself if you could find 3 hours a week that you could offer your services for the summer season - call Janice Allen to offer.
Happy Birthday to Lauren Page Feb. 26, Rolland Mitchell Feb. 28, Cleo Lobdell Feb. 28, Cathy Alden March 1, Ginny Rankin March 2.
