Willsboro sure is coming alive with many different activities to take in. This past week the school budget passed even with a low turn out of voters against the number that are eligible to vote. The same evening there was an outstanding student art exhibit, and a great music concert. We are so blessed to have these special departments to offer the arts to our students. There will be another exhibit of the students work this coming weekend. Also the Drama Club will be presenting a theater production of “12 Angry Jurors” performed in the round. This production will take place at the school on May 30 and 31 at 7 p.m., and June 1 at 2 p.m. with a $5 admission. Another big attraction is the 2013 Willsboro Bluegrass & Traditional Music Festival on Sunday, June 2, starting at 2 p.m. Many string instruments will be featured, for more details call 963-4456 Ext. 221.
