Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Good morning, dear readers: How’s everyone this week? I’m exhausted or maybe just a little “hung over” from sampling all the wonderful craft beers over the weekend. Went to Star Search with my grandsons on Saturday and then to Brews, Blues and BBQ on Sunday. A great time was had by all in Wilson on Father’s Day weekend.
Village meeting planned
The Village of Wilson board will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday at the village hall. Plan to attend this very important meeting as the board is expected to set a referendum date on the fate of our village.
Ongoing activities listed
There are always plenty of regularly scheduled activities to keep you busy in Wilson. Don’t forget that the Knit Wits meet every Monday evening and Quilting For Missions takes place every Wednesday morning, both at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church.
The Friends of the Wilson Free Library meet the first Thursday of every month at the library. They are always in need of new members. Our library has the latest books, audio books, magazines, movies, music, downloadable audio and e-books, computers with high-speed Internet access and office software.
Hopefully, next week I will have more information on bird watching in our area. Ospreys and bald eagles have been spotted and our white swans have hatched some really cute babies.
