Shouts of joy, the snow is going fast and we can now begin to see the grass areas. I have heard many say they have water in their basements, but I guess all of these are part of the season called spring. Things seem to be busy around town. The new "Freeform Center for the Art" was open again this past weekend, the Willsboro United Methodist Church group put on their second showing of the March Madness to another full house this past Saturday. The New Beginnings had 14 come together for supper last Sunday at Pasquali's. Their new addition to the restaurant is wonderful and everyone enjoyed their food choices.
This coming week there will be a Mud Season Card Party at the St. Philip's Church on Sunday, April 3 from 2:30 to 5 p.m. with several card games available. So come bring your friends and enjoy a afternoon of games and refreshments will be served. The next movie being shown by the Champlain Valley Film Society will be "The Fighter"; on Sunday, April 3d at the Whallonsburg Grange starting at 8 p.m.. This is a winner of 2 Academy Awards, Admission is still $5.
I recently enjoyed a television program from Vermont featuring a former Willsboro School teacher William Lange, he is such a great storyteller and has the great Vermont language.
It is time to start looking for Visitor Center Volunteer's, our goal is to be open each of the seven days of the week with two, three hour shifts each day. This is a very nice building to spend time in and you meet many interesting people. I will be calling some of the volunteers that have served in the past, but if you think you would like to give it a try call Janice Allen and explore the details. The features of visiting Willsboro are now being displayed in one of the cases at the North bound Northway visitors rest stop, if you get a chance stop in when you are traveling on your way home from a visit down the line. Several more volunteers are going to be needed at the other Historical sites here in town, so please really give it some thought and lend a hand.
Happy Birthday to Ashley Whalen April 1, Carson Sayward April 2, Ella Mero April 4, Brian Whalen April 7, Bettie Lawrence April 8, Nina McNamara April 9, Mark Bonfey April 9.
