Watching the Olympics has occupied a lot of my time these last couple of weeks. All that competed are outstanding and as a country, we should be very proud of all or our medal winners.
Last week I was commenting that we did not have any snow; well nature took care of that in a big way last Wednesday. We got snow and it was really wet and hard to push aside. Most of the area schools had to cancel, but only for the one day. Our road crews are great at getting the roadways cleared out quickly; for that we say a big "Thank you." It was good to see a lot of open water in the Boquet River, at least up by the Methodist Church area; hopeful no ice jams this year.
Several of the New Beginnings group met for supper this past Friday at the Sportsman's Diner. There was a good crowd there that evening and it is good to see the community support our local restaurants. There was a fun evening at the school recently as they had an indoor circus event; I heard the children had a great time. Both of our school basketball teams had a great season and moved up to some of the final playoffs, these games were very close but we did not come out the winners.
Some up coming events to be aware of they all come on Saturday, March 13. The United Methodist Church's the "Barn Yard Follies" and supper is a sold out event. They have done an outstanding job of setting the scene to represent a farm area and the cast has worked hard on their program. Another big event on the same evening is the Willsboro Congregational Church's Coffee House. This event will be on Saturday, March 13, starting at 7 p.m. and is held at their church hall. They are featuring Tim Akstens & Neil Rossi; they play Old Timey Blue Grass and Blues and Blues Rag Time. The admission is $5 for Adults and $2 for students. Refreshments are available.
You have another choice of entertainment, as the Champlain Valley Film Society will be showing the movie "Up In The Air" at the Willsboro Central School March 13th at 7:30 p.m. with admission of $5. It is a highly acclaimed movie wining many awards. It looks like there are many great opportunities here in our little community.
