The true season of Christmas if fast winding to a climax, by the time you read this it will all be over; so here is wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and hopeful that you had a wonderful time. Our community is looking quite festive and we have had a goodly number of special events to assist us all to have a great time of celebrating. We now have that Christmas card picture with everything outside covered in white snow, it is beautiful. I have noticed many college students home for the holiday and many have a long January break, we wish you all continued success in the years of study ahead.
Many of you may remember Todd Wadsworth, he used to have a florist shop here in Willsboro. He wrote me this year that his mother Mary that many of us also knew had passed away in February and also he lost his beloved Grandmother in October. He seems to be doing well, but truly has a heavy heart with the loss of dear ones.
Several were able to take advantage of the Adirondack Farmer's Market this summer as it was located here in Willsboro. The group really appreciated the great town site for their location and this was there 20th anniversary year of making their products available to the many communities in the North Country. To show their appreciation to our community they presented a gift of $500 at the last Town Board meeting to be used at the town's discretion. The school booster club had a Christmas Raffle and they had many prizes donated by local businesses, so there were several winners. The profit goes to assist the school awards programs, graduation scholarships as well as some sports equipment. They appreciated all that assisted them in this event.
