Well one half or 2013 is now behind us and much more exciting things are ahead. It is exciting to me that we now have two women in our community that are 100 years old and still living in their own homes, there must be something good around here to have people live this long.
The Ecumenical Vacation Bible School was very successful and there was a lot of energy floating around. It had a western theme and every child got a western hat to remind them of their good time. We are most grateful for all the adults and teens that assisted to make this week possible. Now the children can move on to the Summer Youth Program at Noblewood park. That is a six week program and it starts this next week. There is a wide assortment of programs be sponsored by the Paine Library.
Essex community also continues to have their summer music concerts and as usual they do a great job with the Fourth of July celebration.
The Heritage Museum had their opening this past weekend and they are featuring exhibits that tell how important the Forest and Forest products have been to our community over the years. Ron Bruno also gave a great history talk on this same subject. They really need volunteers to help them stay open for Wednesday afternoons from 1 to 4 p.m., along with Friday and Saturday, two shifts of 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1 to 4 p.m., only three hours of your time well spent and the exhibits are well labeled and thus a volunteer mostly just needs to be there, contact Charlie Lustig at 963-7789 or Ron Bruno at 963-4284 and sign up if available.
Looks like some of the residents are moving in to the newly opened Senior Center, this is also very exciting, I understand that they are still willing to give interested persons a tour of the building just stop in and ask. Don’t forget that the Willsboro United Methodist Church July Public supper will be on Wednesday, July 10, serving Pot Roast and all the usual fixings and pie for desert, they start serving at 4:30 p.m. and best you come the early supper hours as they tend to have large crowds and sell out by 6:30 p.m. or so. I also noted that the Willsboro Bowling lanes keep offering interesting things to do for fun, watch their sign.
Our deepest sympathy to the McKenna Family on the recent death of their son.
