Spring time really brings the winter litter to the fore front, so we are most appreciative of the Brass Organization and their volunteers for cleaning up along the Boquet River and at Noblewood. They do something unique with the trash they find, they take some of it and produce a trash sculpture. The end results for this year is now on display at the Visitors Center.
The Noblewood Park rangers are slated to do more clean up in that area this month. The community would always welcome any groups or individuals that would volunteer to clean up other areas in town. It is also important that we take a good look at our own property as it would be viewed by persons passing by, help make each neighborhood really look great.
Sadly we laid to rest a long standing member of our community, Irene Maloney. She was very active in many local groups and was a reporter for Reber in the Valley News for many years. She will be missed, but leaves us with many wonderful memories.
A real enjoyable event will take place this Saturday, May 23 at the Willsboro United Methodist Church starting at 2 p.m. It is their 10th annual Spring Tea and Pound Auction. Any interested persons are welcome to come join the fun, your admission is to bring one or more gaily wrapped pound gift of anything to be auctioned off. The more attractive the outside wrapping, makes the mystery gift in higher bidding to become the winner, and you also get to enjoy the tea and sweets, the proceeds go toward mission projects.
Don't forget the great Breakfast buffet at the St. Philip Catholic Church on Sunday, May 24, from 8 a.m. to noon: $7 for Adults, $3.50 for children, Pre-K free or a family deal for $20. They put on a great breakfast.
The annual Memorial Day celebration will be held on Monday, May 25 in the War Monument Area, I believe at 10 a.m. Then fast on this celebration is the big Local Quadricentennal Founders Day Celebration on Saturday, June 6 with a parade that represents points in our local history and right up to who we are today. We would still welcome entries in the parade, looking for horses & riders, horse and wagons, representation of our rich farm heritage, industry, local business, organizations, groups, older cars and etc. If you can offer something contact Janice Allen at 963-8912 or call Ashley at the Town Hall, 963-8933. The parade will start at 11 and be followed by a community picnic, each group brings their own picnic and possibly a dish to share, your chair or blankets and enjoy Noblewood.
