Spring is Coming, cabin fever wanes

Tired of re-arranging the living room furniture? Don't despair, spring is coming to the Ticonderoga area and local activities are starting to pick up.

Looking for something to do? How about -

World Day of Prayer will be celebrated by the Ticonderoga area Church Women United at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, March 6, at the First United Methodist Church on Wicker Street in Ticonderoga.

A brief business meeting will open the event.

The theme of the program, written by the women of Papua New Guinea, is "In Christ We Are One."

Grace Trombley will be accompanist. The Rev. Helenmarie Sunkenberg will read the story from Exodus of Moses being rescued from the river by women who worked together. Several readings of experiences of women from Papua New Guinea will be part of the program.

Following the study, refreshments will be enjoyed. The refreshment committee members are Dorcey Crammond and Jane Crammond.

All women are invited and men are welcome as well. The gatherings bring together people from Ticonderoga, Putnam, Hague, Crown Point and Schroon Lake.

Through prayer and offerings, they reach out to all women around the world.

The local group also supports the Ticonderoga Meal Site each month. Their funds buy necessities not supplied by the county.

Collections of toiletries are also made at each meeting for the safe house in Ticonderoga.

The Moriah Volunteer Fire Department will host a breakfast buffet Sunday, March 15, 7-11 a.m. at the fire house on Tarbell Hill Road. Donations will be accepted.

The menu will consist of: eggs, bacon, sausage, French toast, home fries, toast, coffee and juice.

The Schroon Lake Public Library will offer a hands-on science/math club for children ages 3-6. The club will meet Tuesday mornings 10 - 10:45 a.m. through March 31.

The content focus is on the four "big" ideas of math and science that children need to encounter before and they begin school - : patterns and relationships, change over time, geometry and spatial sense and numbers and operations. For further information contact the library at 532-7737 ext. 13.
