What a change in the weather from Friday to Sunday this past weekend, eh? Friday and Saturday were so warm one could hardly stand not to be in air conditioning and Sunday was so cold one had to wonder why they thought they ever needed it! We were involved in golf tournaments on both days and Im not sure which was more uncomfortable. The Saturday event, benefit of the Willsboro Fire Department, was won by my son and my husband and another twosome, so that was probably the most popular in our household, the weather not even considered! Sunday we volunteered to help out with the Golfers4 Freedom benefit at the Willsboro course. That event was very successful with approximately $2,000 being collected in support of our troops. With 9/11 facing us for yet another year, the day was especially meaningful.
As a region we should be very excited that Allegiant Air will begin flying out of Plattsburgh International Airport on November 16th! The one destination to Fort Lauderdale is an excellent start and if they do well, more destinations will be added, I am sure. We are voting (in case we ever get the opportunity!) that they add Orlando to the list!! Big Sky is also still out there and we say KUDOS to all who were involved in this monumental accomplishment!
