Warm sunny days of summer | Willsboro Column

Thanksgiving to Easter we long for the cold weather to go away and be replaced with those nice warm sunny days of summer. Here we are several weeks into that longed for season, and now I long for it to slow down it is going to fast, here we are half way into July.

Two grandmothers on Mountain View Drive had the pleasure to witness our grandsons getting married. I got to travel to Poughkeepsie for the wedding of Joseph and Meghan Vanags. This turned into a three day event for me with family. My neighbor Joan Strong had an easier time right here in Willsboro as she got to see Austin and Katie Strong get married Saturday.

The Willsboro United Methodist Church was so appreciative of the many people that blessed them with a great supply of great items for their yard Sale this past Saturday. The event was most successful and very profitable putting them well on their way toward the purchase of a new furnace. Thanks to all that made this possible.
