The first weekend in December is so festive with all the Christmas Craft Sales and the Lunches. Santa was a very busy person as we kept meeting up with him as we made our rounds at all the events. It is also a great time to mee our friends and exchange holiday greetings. Many thanks to our town crews for getting our town decorated for the holiday. It was an annual joy to watch the Canadian Holiday train pass through our community. They do an outstanding job of decorating the cars along with assisting supporting several community food shelves.
We had another storm with high winds and rain recently; as a result some were with out power and had tree clean up. The rising of the Boquet River was another result of the heavy rain. Snow will be upon us in the very near future, so we are thankful that our community has not had any real bad weather conditions.
I learned of another neat way we could help someone out with a big need. This person has regular dialysis treatments; if his family and friends can collect 1,000 plastic screw tops the patient will get one treatment free of charge. These are the kind of tops found on water, soda, medicine kind of bottles. If you decide to assist this person, you can leave your donation on the round table in the downstairs basement dinning room area of the Willsboro United Methodist Church; we will take them to the family collecting them. The Willsboro Heritage Society's 2011 Calendars are available at $9 each; they are at the Drug Store and Village Meat Market. Ron Bruno has done a great job putting it together with the older pictures.
Sadly we have learned of Mary Wever Hislop passing, The Wever family roots go back a long way and now there is very little to remind us of their farm presents. We also learned of the death of Bev Sodaro, she was one of our High School English teachers for several years, and later the Sodaro's had the bowling alley. Both of these people had a strong presents in our community.
Happy Birthday to: Roland Mitchell 12/6, Joseph King 12/9, Kevin Young 12/10, Jack Wintermute 12/17.
