Willsboro might be considered small in size, but we certainly do offer some great things for people to enjoy. This past week it was a great lecture program featuring Sid Couchey and Peter Paine, they shared where life has taken them and the road to getting to this point. Very interesting and really helps us to know our neighbors better. Watch for the next part of this series and come join the group, there is no charge and it is held in the auditorium at the local school.
Another wonderful event was the last movie shown by the Champlain Valley Film Society, it was "Islander" a movie made in Maine, and, as an added feature, the film was introduced by Thomas Hildreth. Thomas was one of the screen writers, producer and was the leading male actor. After the showing he answered questions from the audience about the making of this film, it was a delightful evening of entertainment right here in Willsboro.
The film society will soon feature the Buster Keaton silent movie "The General." This will be shown at the Willsboro School on Saturday, Oct. 17 at 8 p.m. As an added part to the program, Ben Model will introduce the move and play the piano through out the performance. I don't think many of us have ever seen a silent movie on a big screen.
It was great to be a part of the R.S.V.P. Volunteer luncheon this past week down in Port Henry. The room was filled with volunteers that had donated hundreds of hours to project within their communities. Willsboro has a good many R.S.V.P. volunteers.
The Gillillands hosted a fund Raising gathering for Kristy Sprague this past weekend at their home on Mountain View Drive. They reported around 45 to 50 guest attended and got a chance to visit with Kristy. We do welcome her and her family to Willsboro, they are living here now and their two children attend our school.
