The Columbus Day holiday kind of brings our fall season to a close for many, and there sure were a goodly number of yard sales over the long weekend. We also bid several good byes to more and more of our friends who go to the warmer climate. Columbus Day weekend is also the time when many locals join together for a holiday in Maine, this is a long tradition. A couple more of our favorite restaurants have now closed for the season, Ethel’s and the Old Dock in Essex. The Christian After School program started this past Thursday, there is still room for more interested students between Kindergarten and High School.
As a community we have much to be thankful for our local rescue squad, they sure were put into action over this past weekend serving many calls. Many of you may remember a couple of years ago some of us woke up to find a decorated toilet seat in our yard, this was a fund raiser for one of the school classes; well this year you could find a decorated PIG in your yard, so be on the look out. It was reported to me that the open house at the old Willsboro School did have a pretty good crowd out to see first hand the plans for turning the building into assisted living for Senior Citizens. Don’t forget the movie “Buck” will be playing out at the Whallonsburg Grange Hall on Saturday, Oct 15.
Sorry to learn that Marge Provost was taken to the Hospital this past week, we send our well wishes for her recovery. It was good to learn that Helen (Curran) Puzier who suffered a stroke late this summer is now back home after several trips to the hospital down in the Albany area, great news.
I learned that a few more have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversaries, they include Jane and Tom Spierto, Wayne amd Donna Bailey and of course the Feeley’s.
