WILLSBORO - As the days grow shorter and nights grow longer, some people find that their mood is affected. When the demands of the holiday season are added to the mix, the subtle expectation that we are supposed to be merry, cheerful and sociable through the darkest time of the year leaves some folks struggling emotionally.
The Willsboro Congregational Church is planning an evening for those who find Christmas and the holidays to be difficult or depressing. The event is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 21, which coincides with the longest night of the year. It will begin at 5 p.m. with time to make a memorial ornament, and continue with a soup and salad supper at 6 p.m. It will conclude at 7 p.m. with "The Longest Night," a reflective service which will include music and candle-lighting.
The public is invited to attend this free event, and children are welcome. For directions, visit the church Web site at www.willsboroucc.org. For more information, call Pastor Jan Jorgensen at 963-4048 or Steve Smith at 546-9850.
