We start the week off with a big Happy Birthday to a very special person in our community, John Remancus celebrated his 99th birthday this past week. I have some great memories of working with John when he and Harold Perkett ran the Sportsman's Dinner. I believe he holds the title of being our oldest Willsboro citizen at this time. Go, John, for the big 100 next year.
I learned this week from a very satisfied local couple, who proved that one can have an outstanding evening right here in Willsboro. Last Sunday, Tami & Paul Mero enjoyed the community skiing program at Whiteface, then that evening they attended the "Love & Laugh" benefit at the Willsboro School. This was a benefit for the Drama Club. They reported the group truly transformed the school cafeteria into a beautiful dining room, with dimmed lights, flowers, fine linen and beautiful dishes. The meal was great and each table was set for 12, with students as servers, all getting their meals at the same time. Between each course, they were entertained by talented musicians. They were blown away and highly recommend, that if Derrick Hopkins and the drama club do this again, try not to miss the experience. By the way it was Tami's birthday and she really felt it was one she will remember for a long time.
It looks like Feb. 7th could be a very busy time here in our community, many will be watching the Super Bowl with friends, or you could go enjoy the Chocolate Tasting at the Paine Library from 3 to 5 p.m. You will get to taste many chocolate desserts served with tea all for $5 a person. I do believe there will also be some treats for sale. In cased you missed the Senior class performance at the local school as they perform "All I Really need to Know I learned in Kindergarted" will have a second showing with a 2 p.m. matinee on the 7th, the other performance was on Saturday evening at 7:30. Plus the chance to go to another Coffee House evening at the Congregational Church on Saturday evening. Wow; a burst events that most of us will find hard to take it all in on one weekend. Hope you remember to treat your loved one to something special for Valentine's Day, it is only a week away.
A reminder there are still Willsboro Heritage calendars available at several local places of business for $9 each, these calendars have many of our older community pictures and they become collector's items.
