A real change in the weather making it feel more like fall. In just two weeks, it will be the start of the school year. Many of us, I think, we still had some summer activities that we hoped to still get done.
Well, it is what it is and we need to cope.
I still noticed that there is a plea out for host homes for foreign exchange students to spend the school year attending our local school. If you might be interested, call Charlie Lustig at 963-7787 for more information.
There is a rabies clinic to be held on Aug. 19 at the Essex Town Garage. Pets must be on a leash or in a container.
Another one of those great Morning Breakfast meals will be served at the Willsboro Fire Station on Sunday, Aug. 24 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m for the cost of $9 for adults and $5 for children. Pre-school is free.
It is a real joy to share worship time with the residents at the Willsboro Senior Assisted Living Center each week. We are sofortunate to have the assistance of Richard Greer on the piano for our music. The center now has some 50 to 55 residents living there now. If there is any interested community person that would like to assist in this program, give me a call.
The Paine Library still has some end of the season activities before the fall schedule sets in. They have had a very busy season and think you can still pick up some used books for your winter reading.
All the activity at the Willsboro Methodist Church this past week was having the annual Summer Vacation Bible School for the younger children. Then, at the same church, they will be having a special evening of music on Saturday, Aug. 23. It will be “Country Music by the River” with the music provided by the Tuttle Family starting at 6:30 p.m. This is planned to be held out by the river, but if the weather is not good, they will go inside. There is no charge but they will pass the hat at the close of the program.
The older youth will be making available for sale light supper food as they are raising funds to go on a special trip this fall. I hope the weather makes it a pleasant event.
