Our Quad events have now come to a close, this past weekend. We had all of our tourist sites open for viewing and we did get some visitors come out to enjoy our treasures. Hope some of you got to enjoy the local school's annual gala that took place this past week.
Lori Lincoln Spooner and I attended the official opening of the Essex Visitor's Center. They have a very impressive display telling of their historic heritage in the village of Essex. That makes Willsboro, Essex and Westport now with open Visitor Centers. Keeseville has plans to have theirs open this next season. We do get a lot of visitor's that stop in for various reasons and they always enjoy having a person there to answer questions. If you would like to be a volunteer this next season just let Janice Allen know of your desire. Hopeful that all the eligible voters did get out to vote in the primary this past week; you need to lend support to your desired candidates.
Did you notice as you were traveling down the Essex Road that the small building at the entrance of Noblewood Park now has all the bricks taken off the outside walls? It will soon have some new siding. This is the first phase of the restoration project to make this building more usable, the next step is to work on the inside area next year. The Town crews are now installing the replacement fire hydrants; several have been tagged for replacement.
We welcome our new Pharmacist Peter Avery at the Willsboro Pharmacy; this is a most welcome bit of news as we do want to be able to keep this much needed service in town. The restaurant at the Willsboro Marina closed for the season this past weekend; they are now in the process of winterizing the boats for storage.
Some personal news includes the announcement of a baby girl born to Tyler Boardman, her name is Hayden Elizabeth Boardman and she came in weighing over 10 pounds. This makes Marnie Cutting a grandmother and Mary Boardman a great-grandmother; both very proud grandparents. Sympathy extended to Win & Polly Belanger on the recent death of his sister Susan, who died on Sept. 5 after a short battle with cancer.
Happy Birthday: Madeline Blanchard 9/23, Ethel Doyle 9/23, Florence LaMountain 9/25.
