Willsboro Column 8-20-11

— The end of the summer season in the Adirondacks seems to be ringing with music. There are all the fairs in the area and each features an outstanding music group. Willsboro featured two end of summer concerts on the local Band Stand; this past Friday evening the “Greenbeans”; then on Aug. 19, another concert featuring the “Tyme’s Up”. These events are held at 7 p.m., free of charge, at the bandstand, just bring a chair or blanket and enjoy. The local Catholic churches are sponsoring a concert on Aug. 26, featuring the “Wyant Band”, on the lawn of the Essex Catholic Church from 7 to 9 p.m. Here again bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy. There is a charge as this is a fund raiser. Essex Community church has had some great concerts all summer and on Aug. 18, they will feature the Goff Brothers at 11:30 a.m., they are wonderful. Another enjoyable event is an Open House at the local Senior Housing Units on Sunday, Aug. 21, from 1 to 3 p.m. They are featuring the great addition to their community room. A special fund raiser at Sunnyside in Essex, house and garden tour and some special food on Aug. 21, from 4 to 8 p.m., sponsored by RENEW and the E-Town Hospital Aux., there is a charge as it is a fund raiser. The Paine Library is still having art exhibits and their recent Used Book sale. Family yard sales seem to be popping up most weekends just go to the Willsboro Web site for more details. School starts soon and many of our summer vacationing families will be returning home. Welcome home to Ed Collins, we enjoy seeing you sitting outside your home. We still need you to offer your thoughts to our local supervisor on the Horace Nye Home issue, hopeful that it stays in the County ’s control.
