Shakespeare Alive! performers at Calvin Coolidge Homestead (9/5/15)
A bit of sweater weather over the weekend, but I understand the temps will be going back up. Tom and I have been enjoying taking Owen and Landon swimming on the recent hot Wednesdays when we babysit for them. Have you noticed some of the leaves changing? I guess it is that time…..
“Wow”, is all I can say about this year’s Shakespeare Alive performance on 9/5! I have attended for the last several years, but the performers really outdid themselves this time. There seemed to be heightened energy within the group. The lines were crisp and the singing wonderful – highlighting the Bard’s play on words. Sorry if you missed it!
In a similar vein, I just heard the good news that Marcia Bender is the new Theater Director at WUHS/MS. She has big shoes to fill, but from past performances, I think she will do an outstanding job. So, congratulations and we will be looking forward to future shows!
Our next book club meeting will be Thursday, 9/17 at 6:30 at the Schoolhouse Community Center. The book we read over the summer was Good in Bed by Jennifer Weiner, which should prompt a lively discussion.
The Reach Out luncheon will also be this Thursday, serving sloppy joes, cuke and tomato salad, and cake for dessert. We are hopeful about having someone to discuss fraud issues, so consider joining the group around 11:00 in the Community Room of Tyson Church.
I understand that we will be having the first annual Plymouth Notch Antique Apple Festival this Saturday, 9/19. Apparently it is a much enhanced version of our usual Harvest festival, so check it out! Cheese making, cider tasting, orchard tours and VT artisans will be featured, along with children’s activities, music by Adam Boyce, antique cars, and apple-inspired everything you can imagine. Anne Collins, author of Vintage Pies will be on hand and the Plymouth Historical Society will have a display.
Children’s Sunday will be happening again at Tyson Church on 9/20. Join us for our 10:30 Sunday Morning Worship service and enjoy seeing these youngsters learn about the attributes of Jesus. There is always much for us as adults to glean as well!
I am behind with September birthdays, so belated best wishes to Roger Pingree (9/9)
Did I forget last week to note the date of the 13th Annual Benefit Auction at Bethany Birches Camp? Well, it will be Saturday, 9/26, starting with a preview at 9:00 and the auction at 10:00. There will be many wonderful items from which to choose, so go on-line and take a look. For additional information about the auction or the weekend camping opportunity, call the office at 802-672-5220, or go to email@example.com.
