Busy weekend coming up around the Valley, and I am going to start with a pair of non-sporting events. First on the list is the Willsboro Central School Elementary Drama performance of Winnie the Pooh Kids tonight through Sunday. A musical at any age is tough, but pulling together Pre-K through sixth graders in a monumental task that Derrick Hopkins and Jennifer Moore, along with others, have taken on and excelled at for several years now. I think the best praise would be that the Willsboro drama program is one I would like to have my kids participate in.
On Sunday, the Whallonsburg Grange will be showing Captain Phillips complete with a visit from Capt. Richard Phillips himself. This is a great chance to meet and talk with someone who has lived life on the high seas and has been at the business end of a pirates' gun.
As far as games go, tonight is busy with Keene hosting Wells, Elizabethtown-Lewis hosting Willsboro and Westport traveling to Chazy for girls basketball; AuSable Valley traveling to Plattsburgh High in boys swimming and Willsboro hosting Saranac in bowling. The weekend also has the AVCS indoor track team traveling to St. Lawrence University for a meet.
Enjoy your weekend!
