Wow, it sure was exciting to watch some 2,000 bicyclists pass through our community this past week. This was part of a Canadian Tour Group and this was only the second time they have come down into the states. Glad they chose us. Many thanks to those that came out to cheer them on and ring the bells as they passed through. It was impressive and they were very impressed at the welcome.
The Willsboro population is going down as the campers from Camp Pok-O-MacCready prepare to head back home. Also, a lot of our summer guest families are also preparing to return to their winter homes. We can truly feel the summer is fast coming to a close, most of our big annual events are now behind us and we will soon see the school busses out picking up our children. The campaign season is heating up and signs are starting to show up around town. The big local picnic to kick-off Teresa Sayward's re-election was recently held at Noblewood. The New Beginnings group that likes to go out to eat together a couple of times a month are looking for other interested widows and widowers to come join the group. The group goes to local or area restaurants once for breakfast and once for a supper meal each month. For more information, call Janice Allen at 963-8912. The Sportsman's Diner treats us very well for breakfast outings, so if interested, come try us out.
