I think Willsboro is a great place to live and be a part of the community, this past week was very prideful. It was unfortunate that we were without a supervisor for half of this past year, but several stepped up to the plate and offered to run for the office even if it was only for one year. We had a good voter turn out and the voters selected Mr. Edward Hatch to fill that position. Congratulations. The next great event happened at our local school. Mr. Ed Collins visits the school each year to talk to the students about being a veteran and encourages them to stay the course and complete their high school education, which he did not do, and has regretted greatly. So, now in his late '80s, he was surprised at his annual visit, as he was awarded his high school diploma with all the honors that go with graduation along with a most appreciative crowd of on lookers. Congratulations, Ed. Then, on Veterans Day, the annual celebration offered to our local Veterans and their guest was an outstanding program and meal. Here again it was a large crowd and they fed the largest crowd in the six-year history of offering the event. This year the responsibility of the event was shared by all the local churches for the first time. This year two of our oldest veterans Joe Bruno and Ed Collins shared some of their story of when they served, very impressive.
The end of the week was the presentation of the Willsboro Central School Drama Clubs presentation of "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum." The student actors did an outstanding job and showed their talents. It was an outstanding performance. It is such a pleasure to watch these students show case their talents and improve with each year's performance. The drama club offers the student body another opportunity besides sports to raise to the top, job well done.
