Every day living here in Willsboro is an exciting one for me and hopefully for many others. It is great to see some work being done to open a new restaurant in the old Mountain View Restaurant, looking forward to its opening this spring. It is always a pleasure to see a drama production at our Willsboro School. This past weekend the Drama club put on the production of "Rabbit Hole." It was very well done and had a meaningful message for us as an audience. The younger children will be putting on the production of "Sleeping Beauty" in early June, so watch for the dates. Great that the Film Society offers top-notch movies at very reasonable prices. We are hopeful that pot hole conditions can be corrected soon.
Along with the good sometimes brings some scary events. One such incident happened this past week as a bomb threat notice was found at the local school at the close of a day of operation. It was most impressive to see how quickly our local fire department and county law enforcement rolled into action, they did a most impressive job, no bomb was found. This is a very serious act and hopefully the person is found and proper punishment is administered.
HATS OFF & another reason to be proud of this community was to discover buried in the Sunday paper that NYCO had donated $25,000 to the Japanese Red Cross to aid in the disaster within their country. Japan is a close business partner in the Wollastonite business.
Our weather is showing signs of improving, great to see people out walking, riding bicycles and enjoying other outdoor pleasures. We also welcome back some of our locals like Jack & Judy Hams, Linda & Larry Brown returned this past week with reports of others coming soon.
