I found this year that putting Christmas to rest for another year has been harder for me putting the decorations away, makes me think that next year maybe not to put out so many decorations. The retail market sure bounces back quickly to flood us with items to purchase for Valentine’s and St. Patrick’s day, I guess this helps to make the winter go by so much quicker. We still are experiencing real cold weather and will welcome Spring weather any time soon.
Reminder that the Congregational Church will hold their second Coffee House event on Saturday Feb. 8, at 7 p.m. They will feature the music of the Too Tall Band. This is a group that many have enjoyed in the past so make plans to come join them. The cost is only $5 for adults and $2 for students, with refreshment are available for sale.
Another big event will be available on Sunday, Feb. 2 with the showing of the award winning movie showing the adventures of Captain Phillips experience of dealing with pirates off the coast of Somalia. This will take place at the Grange Hall in Whallonsburg starting at 1 p.m. and feature as their special guest Captain Phillips to introduce the film and after take questions. The cost will be $7.50 for adults and $3 for children under 18. This is all made possible by the Champlain Valley Film society. A great opportunity.
Lots of excitement over the air waves about our athletes going to the Olympics. I think by the sounds it could be safer for us to watch the events safely here in our homes. Another great event is being offered by the school’s Drama Club. They are presenting Walt Disney’s, “Winnie the Pooh Kids” on Friday, Jan. 31, at 7 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 1, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 2, at 2 p.m. held in the school auditorium. Tickets are $5 general admission and children under 5 are free. These are always such delightful events.
