Seeking Christmas items | Willsboro Column

Well the report that I received on the election results after the absentees have been counted the winners remain the same as of the election night results. Congratulations to all the newly elected officers and many, many thanks to those going out of office for all their service over the years.

Sorry that after the elections people spoke about the fact that they did not realize the amendments were on the back of the ballot and why did the inspectors not remind people as one of them was about the NYCO land swap; we were instructed by the Election Board that we could not do this as it would be considered campaigning and that is against the law to do inside the polling areas.

Reminder that the New Beginnings Group, due to very low turnouts, will take a break from going out each month for breakfast or supper gatherings. We will see if there is any interest in the spring and adjust the schedule at that time.

The Freshman class at the Willsboro School is seeking items that the younger children can purchase as Christmas gifts for their families, this is the Santa’s Gift Shop for the children, bring any donated items to the school office very soon.

The drive for good used winter coats, hats, scarfs, mittens, gloves are being gathered to hand out to children in need of these warm winter clothing. These items can also be brought to the school office.

Hopeful that many interested local persons turned out tor the results of the study done on if the Willsboro Dam should be repaired and stay in place or taken out this meeting took place last Monday.

This weekend is our kick off to the holiday season with holiday sales in three spots around town. Friday, Nov. 22, the sale starts at the Willsboro Methodist Church 5 to 7 p.m., then on Nov 23 all day Holiday sales at the Methodist Church, Catholic Church and at the Willsboro School starting between 9 or 10 a.m. and going to around 3 p.m.

Sympathy to the family and friends of Pam Foley and Bill Loyd who both passed away this past week.

Happy Birthday to: Arnie Stoker Nov. 22, Ramona Sheehan Nov. 24, David Feeley Nov. 28, Dennis Kalma Nov. 29, Paula Lindsay Nov. 29, Florence Nov. 30. Happy Anniversary to Doug & Carol Young Nov. 24.
