Westport Hose Company #1 will hold its Annual Spring Car Wash on all five Saturdays in March at the Firehouse from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tickets are $5 per wash, but you can buy a book of five tickets for only $20 ahead of time from the Town Clerk. They make a great gift. And golfers, now’s the time to get in on the Westport Fireman’s Golf Tournament, to be held Saturday, June 1 at the Westport Country Club. Teams of four will play from two start times of 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. To sign your team up, call Jim Forcier at 962-4420 before May 24. They’re also looking for hole sponsors. If you’re interested in sponsoring a hole, drop me an email and I’ll put you in touch.
From the folks at CATS: “Champlain Area Trails invites volunteers to help make a new trail on Saturday afternoon, February 16 from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. The “Farm and Forest Trail” will link Wadhams to the Bobcat Trail. We will meet in Wadhams at the Dogwood Bread Company.
We invite volunteers of all ages to “clear trail” which is cutting tree branches and removing fallen logs so people can soon hike and ski on the trail. Making trails provides immediate satisfaction and a real sense of accomplishment because you see the trail develop before your eyes. If people can only be there for part of the project, that is fine.
This trail will eventually extend to Whallonsburg and be an important link in the system of trails connecting Westport to Essex. Please bring gloves, loppers, and hand saws. CATS will also provide tools. For more details, call 962-2287.”
Also, music educator extraordinaire Rose Chancler writes that she “would like to announce the addition of a new piano and voice teacher at Westport's Hamilton Hall. Her name is Wanda Haby, and she is an accomplished pianist and vocalist who will be teaching all ages on Saturday afternoons beginning at noon.” Currently president of the Clinton County Piano Teacher's Association, Wanda sings the national anthem for the San Antonio Spurs.
