Our community is so blessed to have such a great Rescue Squad; they sure have been busy this past weekend. A fatal accident, two or three ambulance calls close together, hopefully you noticed on their outside sign just how many calls they have been out on this year. Hopefully when they have their barrel drops, we give generously. Have you noticed the nice new outdoor picnic area on the Fire Hall grounds?
It is wonderful news that Eli Schwartzberg has received his full funding to renovate the old school building. This will be such a boon for the downtown area. Now if we could only get a grocery market to once again move into town, that would be great.But as a community, if this should happen, we need to patronize such a business. School starts soon and we need to be aware of students walking, biking, and getting on and off the school busses.
There are only two more weeks for the Farmer's Market to be here in Willsboro. Last week, and I believe this week, the political parties have a booth at the Market. This last week, the Democratic Party had a sample of the new ballot that we will be using this year for the election so people can become familiar with how it looks. Candidate signs are going up all over town to help us make our choice on Sept. 14 for that slot on the Republican line. Voting will not be hard, so hopefully we'll have a great turn out.
