Great weather to start getting outside to do yard work or just walking, have seen several bikers going by, the sounds of nature are great. I attended another meeting this past week on what is going on about the dam project. These things take time and they call for certain requirments before anything can even get to a final answer. The project has been put out for proposal to come up with answers to what would be the outcome if we keep the dam in place or take it out. Then when the the firm they pick is chosen, then they come back with the details of what the answers would be for the public to pick the next direction. So stay tuned and be sure to come to those public presentations to render your choice.
This is the season for many of us to do clean up around our homes, if you should come up with any items containing scrap metal, the Reber United Methodist Church is collecting all such items and they use the proceeds to assist them with their purchase of heating fuel for their church. If interested call Doug West at 963-7235.
Along with the spring flowers popping up, each week we see more an more of our favorite winter snow birds returning and taking up residence, glad you are back.
Congratulations to the Champlain Valley Film Society for still serving the area communities with great films, hard to believe it has been 10 years since a small group on interested person got together and floated this idea, and look how it has grown.
A reminder and hopeful that you remembered to write a note of appreciation to Catherine Sullivan of times spent with her, she taught here for 44 years and been in this community for more than that. Her address is 3749 Main Street, Willsboro, N.Y. 12996. She now spends much time in her home and does not get out very little - loves mail. Reading to children is still highlighted in our local Kindergarten classes, once again they invite parents, and other family members to bring the children in their class to come in night cloths at 6 p.m. and listen to a guest story teller come and share a few stories before bed time. I was honored to be asked to to be the guest reader this past week.
