Hello Wilmington! I start off this week’s report thanking all the candidates that ran for office this past week. Congratulations to those that were successful in their political pursuits. I look forward to a smooth transition of my office to the Supervisor Elect. 

Our towns Parks Department will soon be placing Holiday Decorations up around our community for the season. The reason we start so soon is the fact that we have so many decorations to put up that we need to start early. I love to see the Christmas decorations around our town. It plays right into our Community Christmas Celebration which is slated for December 8th and Santa’s Workshop’s Yuletide weekends. 

We are still looking for volunteers for the Community Christmas Celebration. If you would like to help out, please contact my office. 

Please note that the Town Offices will be closed this Friday November 10th in observance of Veterans Day. As always, we are forever thankful to all those that are currently serving or who have served in our country’s armed services. If you see a Veteran, Thank them for their sacrifice. 

Speaking of “Thank You”, I would like to thank resident Bob Peters for his 20 plus years of serving the Town of Wilmington in various volunteer positions. The Town Board did a “Resolution of Appreciation” to Mr. Peters at our October meeting. 

I would like to give a shout out to one of Wilmington’s newest business ventures, “Grandpappys Adirondack Barn” For quite some time, Rachel and John Peck have been creating some amazing Adirondack crafts. Most recently they have been focusing on getting their Woodcraft Store moving forward. Their physical store location will be on Rt 86 heading towards Jay. Checkout their Facebook page at On a side note, I will say it is one of the best views of Whiteface Mountain from this property as well. Just a reminder that copies of the proposed revisions to the Wilmington Short term Rental ordinance are available at the Town Clerks Office. Both the current and proposed ordinances are also available on the town website at 

Well, that’s all for this week my friends. See you around town. Roy Holzer
