Things are feeling more like fall each week, morning light come later and it gets dark earlier, some warm days and cooler nights sure feels like summer is fast coming to a close. Also noted is people are still offering yard sales to help turn over items for a second use to people interested, especially our summer families before they leave.
Events are winding down also, the last play at the Essex Theater, last art exhibit at the library. School sports teams start practice, another golf tournament this weekend, people are encouraged to still get out and walk, run or bike as this is perfect weather. There has been a warning for us to watch for tick bites, as many have been noted in the area, wear cover up clothing, or a good shower after outside activities.
A note to our seasonal guest that will soon be closing up their camps, unopened food items that you do not want to leave in the camp over the winter, it could be useful at the town food shelf, take donated items to the town hall.
Those seeking town elected positions are making their rounds house to house as Primary Election comes up in early September.
We have another Willsboro School graduate, Lee Sloper Jr., to be very proud of as he has excelled in his learning field of repairs to small engines. He recently competed on an area contest and after a big win on this level, he moved on to a much larger contest and did very well at this level also, he hopes to increase his knowledge in this field and one day start his own repair business; congratulations.
There is still a need for host families to take in exchange students for the upcoming school year, if interested contact Charlie Lustig at 963-7789.
