Sorry no column from Willsboro this past week, my e-mail got lost in space and thus did not get to Denton's on time.
By the time you read this, I hope you had a chance to witness the Canadian bicycle group that went through our community this past week. There were between 1,700 to 1,800 people involved in this event; the first time this group has come this way. Our region is very popular for the Canadian tourist and we are hopeful many of the bikers will return someday and pay us a visit.
The Choate & Spierto families have had several of their children here recently for a visit. Florence LaMountain had a granddaughter and her husband here for a week, they did a lot of jobs around her home. My grandson, Joey Vanags and Megan, his newly engaged partner, recently spent a week at our camp. Glad to report that Liz Wilkins has returned home after her fall. Give her a call or a card to welcome her home.
