The Easter Bunny needed an extra coat this year, as it was quite cold and very windy over the weekend. Several families gathered in numbers to celebrate the holiday. There were 20 of my family that got together at the home of my daughter Cindy and her husband Tom in Hagaman, N.Y. We offer many thanks to the area clergy as they provided some very meaningful Easter services. Hope everyone had a great holiday, and now we truly start to look forward to more of our residents to return home from the South.
Capt. Kenda James of the United States Navy gave a most interesting talk and showed slides telling of her recent deployment in Iraq and neighboring areas. Great to get a first hand account of what it is like for our troops to serve during their tours of duty. School is now on Spring break and the senior class has gone on their class trip to Mexico. The next movie to be shown by the Champlain Valley Film Society will be "Milk." This along with the next four movies will be shown at the Depot Theatre in Westport starting at 7 p.m.
It will soon be time to start recruiting volunteers for the Willsboro Visitor's Center and the Willsboro Heritage Museum for the summer months. It is most appreciated to have volunteers that are willing to do a three hour shift on a regular basis. Some very faithful volunteers have given the same time each week for the whole season and this is wonderful, we are hopeful they will return, but we still need some more to fill the rest of the days, we are open all seven days at the Visitor's Center and Wednesday afternoon and all day Friday and Saturday at the Museum. If you are interested contact Janice Allen, work out a time and learn more details.
Sympathy is extend to the family of Sheila Mero who passed away this past week.
