Spring has sprung and thankfully the Boquet River has gone out quite peacefully, it is always a big relief for us to see the open running water. Our snowbanks have gone down at least by half the size and we are seeing some of our flowers poking their heads through the ground, and buds on the trees is a welcome sign. This last weekend was another busy one that it was not possible for us to take it all in, the dinner theater at the Methodist Church, square dance at Whallonsburg Grange Hall, the Champlain Valley presented a great movie all on the same evening. I went to the dinner show "March Madness," this was a most delightful evening of entertainment and a wonderful meal. The group will be presenting the performance once again on Saturday, March 26 at 5 p.m. There are still a few tickets available for this event, call Janice Allen (963-8912) to save you a place.
Another highlight for our community took place on Friday, March 18, it was the early opening of the new Center for the Arts, Freeform. Drew & Elizabeth Belois have started this center. At this opening they exhibited the Willsboro Central School students art work in many different mediums, it was most impressive. Elizabeth is the school art director and the daughter of the local dentist, Mr. & Mrs. David Bonfante. The studio is located in the space that was once Rick's restaurant so watch for a more formal summer opening. It is great that our school can offer the students more than just sports, but also the arts.
Rev. McPheeters is taking a few days vacation time, this coming Sunday while he is away the congregation has asked Yvonne Pierce to come during the regular service and share some of what they encountered on a recent trip to Egypt. Anyone that would care to hear her is most welcome to come join us at 9 a.m.
