Willsboro Column

A flip of the calendar and here we are into a whole new season; a season that very quickly takes us into a different direction and a much more organized one. This past week and into the weekend I spent much time at the Visitor’s Center and we had many bikers stop in and express that this was their last leisure trip for the season. Our community should be very proud that we are able to provide this service to the public; of rest rooms, information and most of the time a friendly person to talk to them. We have had a great group of steady volunteers there all season; we are always looking for more to offer time, if interested just let Janice Allen know.

I keep getting reports from the New Senior Community Center located in the old Willsboro School building that more and more residents are moving in each week. It would be wonderful if they could be up to a full house by Winter.

Some of our youth at church this morning were so excited and proud to show off their new first day, school wardrobe and seemed ready to return to the halls of learning. School starts this Thursday and will once again be collecting those Box Top coupons that can be turned in for useful educational materials, give them to any student from pre K to sixth grade.

A very fitting memorial funeral service for Marion Perkett Helms was shared by family and friends this past week, she touched many lives and we enjoyed sharing our memories with her family. Remember it is always great to share our appreciation of persons that we have known while they are still alive, so if you know of such a person get your thanks off to them now, don’t wait. I believe Edrie Dickerson has been able to come to her Reber home for a short visit before her next medical procedure.

Members of the Inglestrom family, Patty, Missy, Judy and husband Steve Morgan were in town to help celebrate the retirement party for Bucky and Jim Morgan this past week.

Happy Birthday to: Terri Billain Sept . 8, Nicole Bellzile Sept. 9, Darren Darrah Sept. 9, Abigail Boardman Sept. 9, Marion Clark Sept. 11.
