Willsboro Column

As the season is making changes I find that no matter what source the news of the world comes at me it is mostly depressing and only seems to stress the bad in the world. This forced me this week to take a step back and quietly reflect on the community we live in and realize that we a blessed community.

Some examples include a working government, a good public works department, some health services, a wonderful fire and rescue squads, four choices to follow the faith of our likeing, a great school, bank, post office, services for our seniors, recreation opportunities, grocery and gas stations, a fair amount of employment opportunities, preservation of our history, a railroad, good roads that bring supplies into us.

The list goes on and on in my thinking of all of our blessings. The people that live here are friendly and if we all took time to reach out and offer our volunteer services you would see just how blessed we truly are to live here.

Easter is fast approaching and the local churches are making plans for the special services at each church. Very soon all the local groups will be looking for local persons to donate at least one three hour shift a week to make this a very special town. If you are interested give me a call and state your preference and I can match you up.

Reminder the last Congregational Coffee House will be on Saturday, March 9, starting at 7 p.m with the "Wadhams Ramblers" for a fee of only $5 for adults and $2 for children. So many activities at the Whallonsburg Grange, that offer lectures, dance lessons, movies with new and better seating and larger screen. The Willsboro Seniors are offering a play "Murder at the Banquet" on March 22 and March 23 at 7 p.m. with a $5 admission. The Local

Ski club has one more Sunday of skiing on march 10, the Willsboro Fish and Game Club will hold a Turkey Shoot on Sunday, March 10, from noon to 3 p.m.. So there is still lots of things to do.
