End of the year holiday's come much too close together. Our family of a possible 21 in number, had 19 and went out to eat at Guma's Restaurant for our dinner. Thanksgiving is also another departing time for some of our locals to leave for warmer climates. Many other locals travel to visit family it did cut our attendance down in church this past Sunday. Eight of our New Beginning's group went to Rick's Place for Sunday's supper. Happy to see many doing their outside Christmas decorations, the lights are very impressive. The local Garden Club is once again sponsoring the Willsboro's annual town wide outdoor decorating contest. The categories they will judge on will be Best of Show, Spiritual, Magical, and Traditional themes. They will judge Sunday, Dec. 19, so be sure your lights are turned on. There is one change this year if you plan to enter you need to register at the town hall (963-8668) prior to Dec. 19. The contest is open to all interested persons of Willsboro.
The old Crowningsield house on Main Street is really shaping up now with the new white siding, most of that Main Street block has shown much improvement. Still hopeful we can find tenants for the couple of empty stores. The Schrieber family enjoyed a baby shower this past Sunday held at the Willsboro United Methodist Church. The upcoming weekend will be busy with more holiday events both here in Willsboro and also in Essex. The next movie shown by the Champlain Valley Film Society will be Saturday, Dec. 4 at the Willsboro School starting at 7:30 p.m., showing "Winter's Bone." This was a winner of Best Picture at the Sundance Film Festival. It is a great treat to have movies close to home every other week and a low price.
Our sympathy to the family of Mary Jane Lee, she will be missed by many and her husband was a great care giver over a long illness.
Happy Birthday to: Roland Mitchell 12/6, Joseph King12/9, Kevin Young 12/10
