Willsboro Column

Big weather changes, colder and some tree’s are showing a little of the fall colors. I am also getting mailings featuring Christmas items for sale.

I had a chance to see the new movie “The Butler” this past weekend; it sure makes one think about how we have treated those of color. It is well worth seeing and would be great to have a discussion group after to share experiences.

I had the pleasure to assist in starting to offer a short church service each Sunday at the new Senior Community. They have a lovely little chapel on the first floor and as we started this week had some six or seven join together. It is open to a few outsiders to come join us, our service starts at 11:15 a.m. and last about 30 minutes. Then I had the pleasure to visit Ruth Pytlak a resident there and enjoyed lunch with her also, it is such a pleasant place and more are moving in each week, stop in anytime for a visit or for a tour. It is to our benefit as a community to help make this a success as this is a new frontier for our town, the more residents they get the better the services offered there will become.

Primary time is upon us and by this time next week we will have given those running for office a look as to some of the support for the election in November.

News from Florence LaMountain informed us that she along with her family were recently in an automobile accident, where the car was totaled, her family did not get badly hurt. Dorothy Hoke received some good news this past week her health has come to a stable point and she no longer needs Hospice services.

The Methodist church is once again collecting items for the Shoe Box Ministry that provides these gift boxes to children around the world, a great ministry anyone is welcome to donate useful items for our children to pack in the boxes.
