Hello Everyone, Recently Haselton Lumber Company announced it had been sold to Zach Marshall. As taken from their notice on the sale, Haselton Lumber Company has been a fixture in the Adirondacks for the past 123 years. That statement is so accurate. In fact, I would go a little further, Haselton Lumber has been an important part of Wilmington’s growth and history for the same time period. On a personal note, I appreciate all the community support the Haselton Family has given our town over the years and generations. The Family’s name can be found everywhere in town archives and the like. Under Sam Haselton’s leadership he has always gone above and beyond when asked to contribute to the various community organizations and civic events. We wish Sam only the best and look forward to Zach carrying on the business for generations to come.

As announced, the Wilmington Community Christmas Celebration will take place on Friday December 8th. To help enhance your holiday spirit, consider being part of our Santa Entourage Gift delivery. Join Santa in your decked out car, truck or float and help deliver holiday goodies to our Wilmington Youth. Normally the time commitment for this is a couple hours. I can attest to the fun everyone has in this part of our Christmas Celebration. For more information, please contact my office. 

Receive a traffic ticket in Wilmington or Essex County? Well, there are options for you. Participate in a Traffic Diversion or Reduction Program and it could be very beneficial to a person. Of course there are rules and such. One can get more information at This Saturday November 18th, there will be a Holiday Craft Fair atTwisted Raven from 10 am to 2 pm.

As such, there will be no town court on Thursday November 23rd. In addition, the town offices will be closed next Thursday & Friday. A very Happy Thanksgiving to all. 

Finally, there will be no Supervisors report next week. I will resume my reports to you on November 29th. Only a few more reports after that until my term is complete. 

That’s all for this week my friends. See you around town. – Roy Holzer
