Wow, I have just returned from a great spiritual gathering for the United Methodist Church out in Syracuse. This annual gathering of representatives from all over New York is a wonderful experience for me each time I can attend.
Summer events are popping up now weekly. It’s great to see the local restaurants are now open longer. Note that Zeeks Pub is now open seven days a week. The Willsboro diner is open once again, mostly for breakfast and lunch. Indian Bay Restaurant is once again open; Johnny’s has specials each week and of course, Ethel’s.
The 15th Annual Townwide Yard Sale will be held on Saturday, June 14. To get your location on the townwide map, you need to get your reservation in by June 11. Forms are available at the cable office, town hall or someone will be at the Visitor’s Center on Wednesday and Friday from 3-5 p.m.
The Women of the Essex Community Church are inviting all interested women from the area to join them for their Annual Spring Christian Women’s Luncheon on Wednesday, June 11 at 12:15 p.m. This will be a salad and dessert lunch along with a panel of area women sharing some of their faith journey. A collection will be appreciated.
The Gillilland Cemetery wishes to announce they will be holding their annual meeting on June 23 at 9 a.m. at the Willsboro Methodist Church. The public is welcome to attend if you have an interest or have questions.
I noticed the Willsboro Outdoor World shop is open to serve the needs of the fishermen. It opens early. The shop is located on the corner of the Station Road and Bay Road. You can also visit them for information on tournaments.
Our new Town Supervisor, Shaun Gillilland, is still welcoming you to visit him on Saturday mornings from 9 to 11 at the Town Hall to share your ideas or concerns.
It is noted that the School Drama Club has invited interested students that would like to be in the next production of “Peter Pan” to contact the school and let them know of your interest before school is out.
Girl Scouts will properly destroy any old American Flags. Just leave them at the Paine Library. A busy summer schedule is planned at the library, so get one of their schedules.
It was sad to learn of the death of Mary Boardman this past week.
