Holiday Decorating contest | Willsboro Column

Our winter coats are feeling more welcome each day as the weather is getting colder and that white stuff is giving a light covering to the ground. I have heard of many that are out enjoying hunting season, but there are some that get a deer in unwanted ways as they jump out in the path of your car. This has been my son’s misfortune this year.

This past weekend the Holiday spirit came alive and many came out to visit the community kick off Holiday sales and lunches offered. Now soon after the Thanksgiving celebrations with family and friends; the next big Holiday events will take place in the first weekend of December. Between Willsboro, Essex and a few other surrounding towns there will be a variety of local Holiday sales and lunches offered; as well as other events.

Once again the Beautification Committee is sponsoring the out door Holiday Decorating contest. Those interested in entering the contest need to register at the Town Hall no later than Dec. 7. The judging will take place on Dec. 5 starting at 6 p.m., so be sure the lights are turned on. In case of bad weather the judging will take place the following night. First prize is $100 and then three $50 winners.

I love the Holiday’s but there is one big annoyance for me who lives on a limited income, those request in the mail for donations, many repeat request for funds that I don not have any more, this last Saturday I had seven such request and many offer a gift if you give, I say keep your gifts and put the money to your cause.

This past weekend Lara Belzile and her new born son made a family visit here in Willsboro, especially over joyed was the family of Rhonda and Dan Belzile the proud grandparents. Congratulations to both mom and baby.

Happy Birthday: Dennis Kalma Nov. 29, Paula Lindsay Nov. 29, Florence Hathaway Nov. 30,Roland Mitchell II Dec. 2, Clayton Belzile Dec. 3, Dale Boardman Dec. 3,Monica Feeley Dec. 4, Wayne Feeley Dec. 5, Jordan Strong Dec. 5, Mary Boardman Dec. 5, Rolland Mitchell Dec. 6, Sydney Rene Pope Dec. 7.
