Time does get away from us especially as some of us are in the aging part of life, but I recently attended a meeting where we are starting to plan for the upcoming celebration as the town is turning 250 years old in 2015. We are looking to make this a special event and know that plans need to get started early. We are looking for any interested persons that would like to help in this planning, just let Charlie Lustig, Ron Bruno, Janice Allen know of your interest and they will let you know when the next planning meeting will take place.
Also in the plans for 2014 we will be celebrating the anniversary of the Battle on the Boquet. They also need volunteers to help in these plans.
It was great to see that our School Superintendant Stephen Broadwell was given a New York State Theatre Education Association Award of the year 2013. As a key person in our school he has been a strong supporter of building and maintaining a great arts department that joins the theatre, art and music departments working together. This gives the students another learning experiences besides sports and book learning. This award is a credit not only to Mr. Broadwell but to the combined three departments. Congratulations to all involved.
The weather is changing but the community is still offering many activities for us to enjoy hopeful that as a community we are supportive of the activities offered. Plans are well underway for this years Veteran program and meal to be held on Veteran’s Day. They will be especially honoring those that served in the Vietnam War. If you served of know of someone that did serve in that period please let Bobbie Paye know soon.
Our sympathy goes out to the families of Margaret MacDougal and Dale Reynolds who both passed away this past week. We have had several local deaths recently and each passing is a loss for us all.
