Willsboro 1/2/10

Well, the big holiday is now behind us with one more to go in this calendar year. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and was able to be with family. Also hopeful that people can celebrate New Years Eve and do it in a safe way.

The Holiday decorating contest winners have been announced. The Grand Prize went to Ben Peryea & Glenn Sayward, Most Spiritual went to Rusty & Claudia Russell, Most Traditional went to Larry & Jocelyn Blanchard, and the Best of Show went to Richard & Donna Lindsay. The Paine Library Christmas basket of goodies was won by Patricia Hutchins. The Library reported they had very successful holiday fundraising events and they are very appreciative of the public response. Both the Catholic Church and the Congregational Church finished out their anniversary year celebrations with special Christmas services.

Willsboro had two big write-ups in the Plattsburgh Press this past Sunday, a nice report on the movie being made here in Willsboro titled "The Fish Ladder." The finished product will be shown locally at the school by the Film Society. The other article was on the new climbing wall at Camp Poko. This camp is offering some really interesting programs this winter; be sure to pick up one of their newsletters that are available around town.

The Willsboro Heritage Society had the small reproduced Adsit Cabin all decorated and on view at the Town Hall lawn. 11 of the New Beginnings group had their supper evening meal this past Sunday at the Turtle Island Caf . All reported they truly enjoy their selections and the prices are very fair this winter. Noticed the Bowling Alley is offering a special New Years Eve special attraction, looks like it could be a nice event for the whole family and right here in town.

Sad to learn of the death of Ann Latford recently, she died in Florida, sympathy is extended to her family. June Lincoln was rushed to the Plattsburg Hospital recently and still needs some rehab. So she has been moved down near her daughter Christie. She would love to get card and her addresses is c/o of Indian River Nursing Home, 17 Madison Ave., Grandville, N. Y. 12832, or you could call her at 345-4121 in her room.

Happy Birthday: Kymberli Young, 12/26; Peg Schnieder, 12/27; and Jamison Russell, 12/24.
