WESTPORT 6/27/09

Willsboro was full of activities this past week as town wide yard sales popped up on most every street, for many it was a bargain event. The weekly Farmer's Market had a few more vendors and looks like it will keep growing through out the season, plan to stop and take a look on Thursday mornings.

Congratulations to Westport Central School's Class of 2009! What a group-talented, accomplished, creative, smart, hard-working. And, I'm happy to report, just a little bit on the wild and woolly side.

In fact, you could easily make the case that the Class of 2009 has been rather inconsiderate. By being so outstanding in every way, they've placed a terrible burden on subsequent generations to try to measure up. In my day, every class had a few duds, just to maintain a sense of perspective. Where are the duds here? Everyone's a star! I ask you-is it fair? Is it even human? Kids these days.

Seriously, though, you are indeed an unusually bright and promising group of young men and women. We wish you the best of luck as you go out to make your way in the world. But be warned-we expect great things of you.

Here's a reminder about the Fourth of July parade, which starts at the Fairgrounds at noon and wends its way down to Ballard Park. Those who've polished their chrome and wish to participate should meet at Floral Hall at 11:15 to register. After viewing the parade, come and enjoy the afternoon and evening festivities at Lee Park.

The following weekend, don't miss the Westport Library Association's annual Book Sale, which runs Friday, July 10 through Sunday, July 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For a head start, come to the famous "First View Party" on Thursday, July 9, from 6 to 8 p.m., where you can enjoy champagne and strawberries and buy a raffle ticket to win a beautiful Westport chair in the original Thomas Lee design.
