April fools day | Willsboro Column

April 1, April fools day sure seems to be playing the joke on us with this weather, this is not what spring is supposed to be about. There are a couple of changes on Mountain View Drive this past week. A new family has purchased and moved into the white farm house across the road from me. We welcome them and sorry it was not a great moving day due to the weather. The old tenant house on the former Ben Wever farm was destroyed with a controlled burn to assist in the firemen’s training this past weekend. That house was in very bad condition for many years and now leaves room for a new use of that land.

Regardless of the bad weather this past Sunday the congregation that did get out were treated to some wonderful music, from the Praise group from the Keeseville and Harkness churches - it was such a treat and we appreciate their sharing their talents.

Reminder that we are still in the Lenten season and the Ecumenical Churches have joined together each Wednesday at noon to remind us of the meaning of this season. this past Wednesday the gathering was at the Willsboro Congregational Church and then the last one will be next Wednesday in the Essex Community Methodist Church on the corner. Glad to welcome the Hunns back from a little winter break.

Reminder that the Willsboro United Methodist Church is starting their Monthly Public Suppers on April 2, serving meatloaf and all the other good items that make it a great meal and topped off with Homemade Pie all for $9 a plate for adults and $5 for children. They will now be offering these monthly public suppers on the first Wednesday of each month until late fall.

Another pride point over at our local school, Derrick Hopkins and Jennifer Moore who respectively lead the theater and music departments work together to produce some wonderful productions here at our local school. Over many applications our two teachers were picked the top winners over a large regional area.

This is wonderful for our students to have this opportunity to be under their direction. Congratulations.

Happy Birthday to: Ashley Whalen April 1, Carson Sayward April 2, Brain Whalen April 7.
