Winter still lingers but the activities keep us so busy that we really have a hard time taking in all that we would like to take part in and enjoy. This past weekend my son and I attended the Maple Festival at the 1812 Homestead where one could learn about the gathering and boiling of the Maple sap. Then the Willsboro United Methodist Church had a rousing Palm Sunday service with our new Youth Choir sharing their voices for this great celebration of Christ’s entry in to Jerusalem. Hats off to the Whalonsburg Grange for having a very informative program on the effects of the climate changes in our region. Lori Torrance and I also attended a most interesting lecture at the Peru Library on the family line of an African American family. These were all offered in one weekend.
Be prepared for our local Polar Plungers on April 7 as several brave persons will go into the cold waters of Lake Champlain down at the Essex dock area at 12 p.m. with a lunch to follow for $25, the proceeds help the Planned Parenthood Mohawk-Hudson in Essex County.
I understand the School Senior Play was great and those in attendance greatly enjoyed the performance.
The New Beginnings group enjoyed supper together this past week at the Sportsman's Diner, had a very enjoyable meal and enjoyable company.
Our sympathy is extended to the families of Daniel LaDuke upon his sudden death this past weekend as a tree fell upon him in the woods.
Progress on the new home built by the Habitat for Humanities over behind the Post Office area is nearing completion and the family is anxious to move in.
