Word has been received that some of our residents who try to escape to warmer climates are reporting much colder weather than they usually get to enjoy. North Country people seem to take it all in stride and kind of have a chuckle as we hear from those down south. A reminder that winter weather still offers us plenty of fun things to enjoy.

I was able to attend the Open House for the Essex Theater down at the Willsboro Visitors Center this past Sunday. They offer some great opportunities for people to get involved with their group, either acting, or assisting in the other parts it takes to put on a production. They would truly like to get more people from Willsboro to come join them, so give it some thought and call.
