The elections are now behind us and hopefully the most qualified persons are now elected to the job they were seeking. I find it encouraging to see so many of our middle age persons offer to run for local positions. I am writing this before the actual election day, so I do hope a large number of eligible voters do come out to vote. Every vote counts and it gives the winners a better feeling about winning.
Halloween seemed quiet and did not hear of much of any damage done around the community. It was not a good weather night, but the joy of seeking those candy treats brought many out regardless of the weather conditions.
My understanding that the two musical programs this past weekend were outstanding and they had good crowds at both events. The next event to watch for is the school drama club’s, “The Little Shop of Horrors.” This will be presented on Thursday, Nov. 7; Friday, Nov. 8; and Saturday, Nov. 9, at 7 p.m.; then on Sunday, Nov. 10, at 2 p.m. This event will take place in the school auditorium, the admission is $10 general admission, seniors & students $8, children under 5 free.
The next big event to look forward to are the three annual holiday craft sales and lunches on the weekend before Thanksgiving. The traditional Methodist Church sale on Nov. 22 and 23 and the Soup Lunch on Saturday, Nov. 23. The Willsboro Catholic Church also has on the same day a Holiday Sale and Lunch, then a large vender Holiday Sale at the local school. A wide variety of things to see and hopefully a head start on your Christmas shopping locally. This is an annual pre holiday event where you get to see many friends and family, all enjoying the holiday spirit.
Then Thanksgiving will fast be upon us and one month later Christmas. Many people say to me, “where did the year go??” I have been told that when one retires and the aging increases time does slip away quickly. Senior Citizens if you are being troubled about all the messages about Health Care coverage and wonder if you are OK - The Office of the Aging is very helpful to review your coverage and explain some of you questions. I found them to be most helpful.
Happy Birthday to: Peter Johnpeer Nov. 7, Nancy Randall Nov. 12, Nicholas Arnold Nov. 13, Gretchen Boardman Nov. 13.
