This is the week that we celebrate the beginning of SPRING - now all we need is to wave a magic wand to make the snow go away. We can hope. It is also a time to be reminded that our seven local churches are working together to help us be aware of the meaning of this time each year; by providing each Wednesday with a noon time light lunch of soup, sandwich and beverage at noon along with a time of worship for the season. These gatherings are held in each of the local churches in the Willsboro and Essex area so check with your church to know each week where the gathering will take place.
It is great that the Girl Scouts are still very active in this community, we are so appreciative of the adults that volunteer their time to make this program available. Recently they had their annual open house and awards program. They held this event at the new Senior Community and it was well attended of large group of scouts and family members along with the residents of the center. Those busy scouts have just completed their annual cookie sale.
Hope you got to enjoy the take out supper from the Willsboro Congregational church of Roast Beef. These are great meals and the proceeds help our churches with their ministry. If you are interested and do not know about them you need to get on their calling list.
The Willsboro United Methodist church will once again be offering their monthly Public suppers starting on Wednesday, April 2, serving their much liked Meat Loaf and homemade pies. These meals are served in the church dining room starting at 5 p.m.
The same church would like to invite any interested persons to join them for a special worship service on Sunday, March 30. This will be a combined service with the Willsboro and Reber churches coming together with the Praise Group Psalm 33 from the churches of Keeseville and Harkness conducting the spirit filled service. This service will start at 10 a.m. so come join us.
The Willsboro Alumni group from the local school is actively working on this June annual banquet and program, stay tuned.
Happy Birthday to: Mona Morgan March 22, Roseann Sayward March 23, Polly Belanger March 23, Drago Lobdell March 23, Christine Provost March 24, Carol Young March 25.
