Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Good morning dear readers: How’s everyone this week? Here it is the middle of November already and I’m still working to complete my 2013 New Year’s resolutions. I did complete several big projects this year, so I’m feeling pretty good about that. Of course, as you faithful readers already know, the Wilson Dog Park was opened in May. It is still a work in progress, but is fast becoming the joy I had hoped it would be. We had water and bathrooms available for a few months until Nov. 1, when the water had to be turned off as the source is in an unheated area. Water facilities will return in April. However, I am proud to announce that some lights were installed last week. The parts were purchased through donations and our good friend Tim Woodcock donated his skills to install them. Thank you, Tim. The park will be lit through the winter from 5 to 7 p.m.
The Wilson Golden Agers meeting is Tuesday at the Wilson Fire Hall, 250 Young St. Coffee and tea are served at 10 a.m. with the meeting at 11, followed by members’ Thanksgiving dinner. The dinner price is $5 per member. On the kitchen committee are M.K. Brown, J. Fleming and S. Roberts. The Savannah, Jekyll Island and Beaufort trip is slated from April 6 to 12.

The Wilson Free Library’s recently held BTOP (Better Technology, Onsite and Personal) computer classes were enjoyed by all who attended. Sara, the “computer guru,” is verily knowledgeable, an excellent teacher — and fun. The “students” all learned a lot. If you have not taken advantage of these free classes, you really should; they’re great. Sara and the BTOP Express will be returning to the Wilson Library for classes the week of Dec. 9 through 13. Stop in or call the library at 751-6070 to register. The BTOP Express is provided to us by our NIOGA library system.
