I would like to thank Tom Mero for doing such a great job of cleaning up the weeds in front of the old school, it really looks much better. As a community, we were sad to learn of a very tragic accident this past week here on Mountain View Drive. A young woman did not make it home and leaves three children. We also lost a dear friend, Rona Hams, this past week; she was a friend to many and was a great parent and foster parent over the years.
We have such a great Visitor's Center here in Willsboro and proud to make it available to those in need of information and the bathrooms. So it is hard to understand why someone would do another small act of vandalism and flood out one of our bathrooms. Another prideful thing in our community is the flower barrels around town. Several volunteers work hard to keep them watered and weeded, so it is sad when they find some of the plants pulled up and thrown on the ground.
The Fourth of July weekend will soon be upon us, so remember the fireworks will be down in Essex Friday evening, and the parade and other events will be Saturday, July 3.
The next public supper at the Willsboro United Methodist Church will be Wednesday, July 7, serving baked ham, macaroni & cheese, baked beans, rolls and desserts; they start serving at 4:30 p.m. Graduation went well this year and it was very impressive all the scholarship funds that were handed out to the graduates. Congratulations to Eric McCauliffe for his graduation from the State University of New York at Oswego last December. He has now been accepted to and enrolled in the masters of social studies education at Hawaii Pacific University located in Honolulu for a two-year program starting Sept. 7.
