Russian Playgroup is held on the first Saturday of each month with Willistonian Natasha Fluery; Ava Tully, 1, of Richmond plays during the carnival; costumed viewers catch up on the last season of Downton Abbey while snacking on tea sandwiches, cookies and scones; Bill Skiff and Susan Raimy sample the offerings at the Downton Abbey Tea.

    almost 3 decades ago when williston started it’s development review process the public works section was pushing for a wider roadway typical for residential streets. The town adopted 30 ft widths vs 24ft. That’s 6/24 (30%) additional impervious area and runoff that needs to treated before flowing into ALLEN BROOK. The town and selectboard have indicated a lack of interest to reach out and help communties like mine that have had expired stormwater permits for more then a decade. Its always been a wait and see, well I see where this headed now.
