Ecumenical Lenten Lunch and service | Willsboro Column

I really am feeling that spring is not far off. This is the first week that I have gone out to do errands and not had to wear boots, feels good.

Our days seem a bit longer with the day light and we are now back on that day light saving time clock. The change kind of messes us up for a week or two, but things are really beginning to get exciting for this summer. A group of interested persons got together this past week to make more plans for one of our big local history celebrations. The weekend of June 13-14 the community will recall that some 200 years ago as the War of 1812 was raging in the area on this date there was some activity named the Battle of the Boquet. Lt. Colonel Commandant Ransom Noble played a large part in that event. So on this weekend he will be honored and remembered. His monument in the downtown park is being rebuilt and cleaned up. A group of re enactors are coming to offer some time period demonstrations throughout the day. A Special lecture program on Friday evening on War of 1812 and how we played a part in this event. Stay tuned as many more things are being planned for this special weekend.

Very proud of the men’s group at the Methodist church as they put on their second Soup & Bread lunch this past weekend. They are happy to report that they have reached their goal of being able to send five youth to summer church camp on scholarships.

The Willsboro United Methodist Church is planning a large, real large Yard Sale this summer and they are looking for donated items for the sale, so they invite any interested persons that would like to donate items in good condition to offer it to this event. The church has to replace their furnace and the proceeds from this will go toward that project (no clothing). If you have questions or the offer of items call 963-7651, 963-7215, or 963-7185. All help is appreciated.

The Ecumenical Lenten Lunch and service take place each Wednesday during lent at noon in the different churches, contact your church for more details.
