Willsboro Column

Well fall is officially here and the month of September seems to call us back into getting things organized for the months ahead. The Willsboro Alumni Organization is once again setting plans for next year’s banquet and to set our goals for the coming year. We are eager to be under the leadership of our new President Gary Ferris.

Election is just around the corner and we do have a very active local election this year, there will be many changes as several that have served us in the past are no longer assuming their town positions. So as the citizens of this community we really need to make an all out effort to learn what those running for offices stand for as they represent us. Then we need to get out and vote.

The new Senior Community located in the old school building is growing each week. It was a pleasure to visit with Peggy Shambo, and Gert Schmitt who are now residents. Friends and Family are encouraged to drop in for a visit and see how great this building is becoming. Just as I was leaving Brian & Cindy Pytlak were coming in to bring an offering of their new apple crop from their local orchard. Noticed that the open mike evenings are back at the local bowling ally.

September is the start of school and all of the activities like sports, music and drama presentations. It is such a pleasure for some of us adults that assist in the Mentor program where an adult from the community is paired up with a Junior or Senior student for a monthly one on one session through the school year.

Lee Ackley will be conducting the service on Sunday, Sept. 29 in the Willsboro & Reber United Methodist churches, services are at 9 and 11.

Congratulations to D.J. Koenig and Michelle Rabideau are now the proud parents of a daughter, Isabella Ameila Koenig she was born on Aug. 13.
