Foliage Season Extended in Plymouth! — Margo’s Plymouth Report

Team Nolan helped raise funds for the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth, 2016

Team Nolan helped raise funds for the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth (CHaD)


I almost feel guilty to still be enjoying our lovely autumn with its amazing colors when other places have been decimated by wind and rain.  How dare I complain about the daylight hours shortening!  Strange creature we humans…..

I admit that I have not done much snooping for local news this week.  How wonderful it would be if folks would send me some!  I am sure our students are doing fantastic things.  There must be some birthdays, anniversaries, and achievements to celebrate.

Oh well, I will tell you about the incredible event in Hanover on Sunday to raise money for CHaD – the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth.  There were thousands of people and there was something for everyone.  Landon and Owen along with several young friends (including cancer survivor Nolan Alberty) ran or walked the 1 mile designated for them.  Some folks participated in the half marathon, many ran the 5K and some of us walked the 5K.  All of us received ovations and medals.  The air was electric with good cheer and the presence of superheroes of all ages was incredible.  Music of various types was played throughout the day.  I was so grateful for the loud beat of uplifting tunes near the end of the walk – it kept me going at a lively pace.  For those not actually participating, the green in Hanover is a wonderful place to socialize and enjoy the excitement, all for a good cause.

Activities are Winding Down as Winter Weather Descends — Margo’s Plymouth Report

Reprinted by permission of The Vermont Standard


There has been a shower of leaves at our house lately, but they are still lovely – even though many of them are on the ground now.  I imagine tomorrow (Monday) will be spent gathering some colorful ones with my grandsons!  The changing seasons bring ponderings:

Autumn and Life
Crimson leaves, plus orange and gold

Are drifting into my planter of once lush impatiens.

Two different seasons, yet they blend together

During this time of in-betweeness.

One seeps into the other – how much like life….

Ludlow was congested on Saturday with the chicken BBQ in front of the Legion and the chili cook-off on Depot Street.  Still, there were a number of people who worked their way through to attend the Memorial Service for William Bostock that was held at the Baptist Church.  Condolences to Ruth and also to the family of Rose Parsells.

It is strange, but I don’t seem to have many on my birthday list for October.  Congratulations to Bill Jarvi who turns 92 on 10/11.  He was at the Café at Delight this past Friday, where he holds court once per month prior to his chiropractor appointment.   It is generally the 1st Friday of the month and folks are invited to visit with him there.  When I asked how he was, he said “top shelf”!  I believe that Sammi Lynds will turn 7 on 10/17, so best wishes to her, too.

By the time the Standard comes out, Bea Wheeler will be back home in Plymouth.  John will remain in the Gill Home for another week or so, before he comes home.

Things are winding down a bit around here.  The Historic Site will be closing 10/16, although some buses may still be visiting there.  I am not sure of the exact date of the start of road work on the Notch Hill, but I understand it will be soon.  Between road construction and those enjoying the foliage who are not paying attention to their driving, the rest of us will need to be very alert and careful!

Deep Fall Settles Into Plymouth — Margo’s Plymouth Report

Reprinted by permission of The Vermont Standard


This was a dreary weekend, but the many events taking place helped to make it fun.  The Harvest Fair at Ludlow Elementary School on Saturday was busy and festive.  Then I scurried up to the Notch to catch the performance by Linda Radtke, accompanied by Arthur Zone called “History Through Song”, that was sponsored by the VT Humanities Council and arranged by Bill Jenney.  It was simply marvelous, with a diverse selection of music that included songs from Civil War days, such as ‘Neath the Pines of VT.  Also presented was Keep Cool and Keep Coolidge and the closing song was the VT State Song.  I believe they had a good crowd at the Site for the Apple Fest, which had many other attractions, including the PFD BBQ and the “Anything Apple Recipe Contest”, which was won by Sheree Vaughn-Tucker with her apple muffins.

We had an animated discussion about America’s First Daughter at the Book Club on 9/29 and we have actually set up the next two books:  We are reading We Are Unprepared by Meg Little Reilly for 10/27 and The Shepherd’s Life by James Rebanks for 12/1.  We really do have a great time, so think about joining us.   Please be aware that Tyson Library will closing after the holiday weekend, so the last day to stock up on books is 10/8!

I am so excited about the Mindfulness Classes on Tuesdays from 6:00 – 7:00 PM with Susan Mordecai at the Community Center.  The initial 4 class are 10/18, 10/25, 11/1, 11/8.   It is so nice to have activities happening right here in town!

Restaurants in town will be taking a break.  The Inn at Water’s Edge will be closing 10/17, but be aware that they will be having a 4 course Thanksgiving Dinner for $25.00.  They only seat 25, so if you are interested, make your reservations soon – 228-8134.  Also, the Echo Lake Inn (228-8602) will be open Monday through Thursday the next three weeks, through 10/20, plus Fridays, 10/7 & 10/21.  In addition they will be open Saturday 10/22 as well.  They will also be serving Thanksgiving dinner.
