Last week we had a good deal of snow and cold weather, this week that is all gone, well I guess that is what North Country weather is all about. Reports are that Spring is not far off.
A Willsboro School group the College For Every Student held a fund raising dinner at the Essex Inn. It was a most enjoyable evening, welcomed with a nice fire in the large fireplace, soft lighting, many in attendance, a great meal and a good feeling of helping a local group. This would be a great place to take your Valentine sweetheart for a special evening at reasonable prices. Other local restaurants are also offering Valentine specials, no need to go out of town.
I have received several wonderful reports on the progress of the Old School, some have had a private tour and are so impressed. Persons that had signed up as being interested received invitations for a open house soon. It is great to see this much loved building made useful once again. Many thanks to Eli for his vision and hard work to make it a reality.
Reminder of the Coffee House at the Congo Church, the Valentine Chocolate Tasting, movies and lectures at the Whallonsburg Grange, Edna Coonrod's Birthday Gathering, events at the Bowling Ally, music lessons at the Library, winter lecture at the Poko McCready Outdoor ed, school activities and thus shows we do not just sit around doing nothing up here in the winter months.
Our sympathy to the loved ones of the many that have passed away recently, Chick Hill, Rita Benedict, Edward Wade, Jennete Donaldson,Edna Flora Norton, Elizabeth (Betsy) Holland, for most their services will be in the spring.
Sorry that I reported incorrect month for the Birthday's last week, so will list again.
