It is hard to believe that September has come to a close and the signs of Fall are creeping in fast. This past week many family and friends gathered together to celebrate Ethel Doyle’s 96th birthday, she was roasted and toasted and many shared what a great lady she stands for in their lives. The family of Kyle Russell is enjoying him home on a short leave from his military duties. We send our sympathy to the family of Betty Whitford who had recently moved into the Willsboro Senior Housing unit, she passed away very suddenly this past week. The residents were just getting to know her and thus found it hard to loose her so soon.
Some upcoming events to be aware of include the next public supper at the Willsboro United Methodist Church will be on Wednesday, Oct. 5, serving Meat Loaf along with all the usual fair. The same church will be starting the students after School Christian Education program on Oct. 13. This is for any interested children in grades Kindergarten through High School. The group meet right after school until 5 p.m. and they do appreciate pre registrations. Contact Barbara Feeley at 963-7185 for more information. Another very worthwhile program that is soon starting is for Boy Scouts from grades 1 through 5. The registration will be held at the Willsboro School cafeteria on 6:30 p.m.
I have recently been made aware that many in our community experience some eye sight loss and it does make us need to learn how to compensate for that loss. There is a very helpful program offered here in Essex County and they would send a representative here to share helpful ideas. I have been in contact with this person and we will be working to set a time for a program for any interested persons. I am still recovering from my knee replacement surgery and this has held getting this program set, hopefully soon.
Happy Birthday to a few belated ones Todd Huestis Sept. 20, Margaret Beuerlein Sept. 22, Stefanie Lobdell Sept. 23, Alyson Arnold Oct. 1. Happy Anniversary to Bill and Kenda James Oct. 1.
