It is great to see changes in the weather, snow piles are shrinking, days are inching a little longer, more birds are showing up and a few tight buds are showing on tree’s and schrubs. The Boquet River has some breaks of open water. Also as I am writing this column only10 days from now it will be Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the Lenten season. These are all very welcome signs.
People are getting back into routine after some had a vacation last week. Those that went on an ocean cruise had a great time on a floating city. A few went down to some of the southern states for a little change, but all glad to get back home.
Reminder that the Willsboro United Methodist Men will be holding another Soup and Bread, dessert Lunch on Saturday, March 8, between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. serving five kinds of homemade soup, several kinds of breads, man size desserts and beverages of choice, all for only $6.
A correction from last week, the Willsboro United Methodist Church will be starting up public suppers in the near future, but no date or month have been set so watch for that date.
The Congregational Church had their last “Coffee House Concerts” this past weekend, It is great that they make this available each winter.
I had a wonderful Mother gift this past week, two of my adult children paid me a visit each for a couple of days. A mother always likes to have some “one on one” time with their children and especially when they live farther away from Willsboro.
I really enjoyed the Olympics, those competing are just great to watch them use their skills, but the fantastic job of the camera people that bring these event right into our livingrooms, just blows my mind.
The Champlain Film Society will be showing “Gravity” on Marchch 1, staring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as they show how it is to be in space. This movie gives a great picture as to how one would cope while floating around in space. Movies are at the Whallonsburg Grange Hall starting at 7:30 p.m. with a $5 adult charge and $2 for chhildren under 18. This group shows some great movies right here in the area.
