It is hard to believe that Easter is only four weeks away and this is the time we not only welcome the birds back to the area but we also look forward of the return of our families that depart for the winter. We still have much snow to leave us, it is hopeful that it will melt at a rate as not to cause flooding.
The Willsboro United Methodist Church is still a busy place of activities. The After School Youth Program is coming to a close for the season this week. They recently took the children to visit the animal shelter and take them a donation of food supplies and a money donation. The older youth went to view the recent movie “Son of God,” and they found it very moving and a better insight into the life of Jesus. This same church will host the third Lenten lunch on Wednesday, March 26, at noon. Sunday, March 30, they will have as their special guest a Praise Group from Keeseville/Harkness churches to conduct the morning worship service starting at 10 a.m. This is always a lively time of worship. They are starting their monthly Public suppers on April 2, serving meat loaf, mashed potatoes, vegetables, salad and homemade pies, starting at 5 p.m. for $9.
Before very long summer opens up to many annual events and there is always a need for several volunteers to make these events do well. The Visitor’s Center will be looking for volunteers that would offer at least one three-hour shift a week to be at the center to greet guest. If you are interested let Janice Allen (963-8912 ) know of your offer, she can fill you in on details of what a volunteer is expected to do. The Heritage center and Adsit Cabin will be looking for volunteers to offer their services for a three-hour shift, let Charlie Lustig or Ron Bruno know of your interest. This year and next year this community will be celebrating special anniversaries. We have a rich history of our past life here and need to retell of these special times of our history.
Reminder that our new supervisor is still seeking the public input of things they would like to see done here in Willsboro. He is holding these free open time each Saturday form 9 to 11 a.m., so just stop in and have a visit. The Town Board is still seeking a new possible location to house the local food shelf and store the medical supplies along with a possible local site for the Senior Citizen weekly gathering place for their lunch times. If you have any offers or suggestions let them know at the town hall.
