I guess Mother Nature thought that we needed a reminder of just what winter was really all about. You know very, very cold, frozen pipes, cars not starting, very slippery walking conditions, you know the whole list of what this kind of weather brings on. Those persons that need to take their dogs out seem to find the animals seem to enjoy the outing more than their masters.
Well with the turn of the calendar and the start of a new year gets us back into offering some of our regular events for this season. The Willsboro Congregational Church is once again offering their winter series of Coffee House Events. This is their 20th season of making the talents of local and area musicians come together to provide a lovely evening of music. The first of the series will take place on Saturday, Jan. 11 at 7 p.m. at the church parish hall, this concert is featuring the trio of Blanchard, Vicaro, & Sonnet. These concerts are held each month in the Winter for a slight fee of $5 and refreshments can be purchased also.
I learned that Joyce & Robert (Bob) Bridge celebrated their 62nd wedding Anniversary on Jan. 2 - hope they had better weather on the day of their wedding that this year at the same time. Congratulations a nice tribute to marriage and devotion.
School is scheduled to start again this week, if weather conditions do not disrupt the schedule. The basketball season is in full swing. Often when I am over at the school when it is bus time some students not wearing coats, hats and etc, their choice I guess.
Hope you noticed we now have a second teacher to be named a National Board Certified Teacher for professional Teaching standards, a great achievement and she is one of our local teachers, she teaches second grade. Congratulations.
Happy Birthday to: Belated to Richard Greer Jan 5, Ruth Pytlak Jan 16, Marion James Jan. 17, Peggy Hunn Jan. 18, Deanna Mero Jan. 18.
