SHORELINE BYLINE: Break out of the winter doldrums with activities in Wilson

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Good morning, dear readers: How’s everyone this week? Happy New Year wishes to all our Chinese friends. This is the year of the horse.

No matter what the groundhog said yesterday, you know we always have to wait until St. Patrick’s Day before we see the end of winter around here.

Can you believe the Atlanta area last week? Yeah, they had an ice glazing and about 2 inches of snow and they were totally shut down. They need to spend some time in Western New York and “man up” a bit. It took my son in Lawrenceville, Ga., 23 hours to get home. At least he was stuck near a Waffle House so was able to have a couple of breakfasts, hot coffee and a good, warm place to pass the time.

The Wilson Golden Agers will meet Tuesday at the Wilson Fire Hall, 250 Young St. Coffee and tea are served at 10 a.m. and the meeting is at 11, followed by a bag lunch and election of officers. On the kitchen committee are M. Donovan, I. Heiser and A. Smith. If Wilson schools are closed due to bad weather, the club doesn’t meet. The Golden Agers meet the first and third Tuesdays of the month. Anyone 55 or older is welcome to join. For more information, call Sandy Yousett at 751-9284.
