Here’s an update on the Senior Play at WCS (The Election, by Don Zolidis), which I wrote about a couple of weeks ago. Originally scheduled for Nov. 15, it’s now been rescheduled for Saturday, Nov. 23 at 7 p.m. in the Bulles auditorium.
And it’s time for the annual Holiday Party at the Westport Library Association, with its famous Wine Tasting and Silent Auction, also on Saturday, Nov. 23, from 6 to 8 p.m. This is a community event that’s open to all, with a suggested donation of $15 at the door. There’s a selection of fine wines handpicked by Pat at the Boquet Liquor Store in E’town, a chance to win the raffle prize of a rustic kindling box from Dartbrook Rustic Goods in Keene, and a whole lot of exciting offerings to bid on. Auction items include golf at the Westport Country Club, a delicious farm-to-table quiche brunch for eight at DaCy Meadow Farm, 10 yoga sessions at Lake Champlain Yoga and Wellness, and a three-day June weekend at Sandy Beach Cottage here in Westport. Refreshment, recreation, nourishment, relaxation, and a lakeside cottage—who could ask for more?
The Westport Federated Church would like to share Thanksgiving with the community and will offer a Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Thanksgiving Day from noon to 2 p.m. Everyone is welcome and there is no charge. If you would like to help with prep, set up, serving, or clean up, call Alta LaPine at 962-4465. (And if Ernie answers, you can take the opportunity to support the Fire Department by telling him you’d like to buy some raffle tickets for the Holiday Basket of Cheer.)
The Westport Heritage House committee is winding down their Raise the Roof campaign to pay for the repair of the building’s slate roof. The repair has been completed, and the folks at the Heritage House would like me to pass on their sincere thanks to all who donated so generously.
Don’t forget that Dec. 7 is the deadline for the Champlain Area Trails (CATs) Photo and Caption Contest. Submit your photo and caption and win up to $450. You can win in three categories: Hiking the Trails, Scenic and Nature, and Champlain Valley Towns and Villages. Details at champlainareatrails.com.
