The Memorial Day Weekend Annual Tag Sale is Almost Here! — Margo’s Plymouth Report

Annual Tag Sale Coming Right up! Contact Lauren Skaskiw to participate as a vendor!


What lovely weather for Mother’s Day – hope everyone enjoyed it! Of course we certainly deserved it after the brief return to winter on Saturday. The baseball parade took place in Ludlow on Saturday, plus both of our grandsons had games. It was absolutely freezing! The cold wind was whipping and showers were threatening and it certainly didn’t feel like the 50 degrees that was predicted. I hope that was the last of warm coats, hats and gloves!

I understand that WUHS prom took place at Bethany Birches Camp this past weekend. What a lovely setting and a nice way to acquaint folks with the camp. There will be a work day there on Saturday, 5/19.

The time is fast approaching for the big tag sale at the Community Center that will take place from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM on both Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day weekend.

Hazardous Waste Drop-off Schedule — Margo’s Plymouth Report

Annual Tag Sale Coming Right up! Contact Lauren Skaskiw to participate as a vendor!


A friend and I went for a lovely walk in the woods on Friday and were marveling that there were no black flies in evidence. The following day, both of us found ticks embedded in our bodies. Apparently this is a very bad year for these unwanted hitchhikers, so do be vigilant. I have just ordered treated gators to wear on my next outing!

So the bears are definitely out and about here in Tyson as well. A neighbor left her feeders out just a little too long and paid the price of having to buy new ones for next season! The storm the other night with strong winds shook some nests loose, but the robin who built under the eaves of Tyson Church remains safe. Trees and branches littered the roads, so thanks to those who cut and removed them.

How could I forget Kathy Lynds birthday on 4/29 – belated best wishes! Most of the neighborhood attended the birthday party of Keith and Jin Cappellini’s son, Eugene on Saturday. He turned three and thoroughly enjoyed his Thomas the Train cake.

I was not aware that green bags were available at Town Hall and a dumpster was there for GreenUp Day. There is still a way to participate because green bags can be brought to Fast Trash in Bridgewater, or curbside customers can leave them out with their trash at no charge. Ludlow transfer station is also another resource for disposing of green bags.

Please note this information for the upcoming hazardous waste collections for Plymouth folks. May 12th from 9 AM to 1 PM at the Springfield Transfer Station, then the same times on May 19th at the Weathersfield Transfer Station. Apparently you can bring an old mercury fever thermometer and receive a new digital one for free! You may call 674-9235 or visit www.vtsolidwastedistrict.org for a list of what to bring.

The next Community Luncheon to be held at Tyson Church will happen on Thursday, 5/17 at 11:30. Chicken, veggies, salad and dessert will be served. Come join the fun!

How exciting for Jackson Ellis that his book, Lords of St Thomas has won the 2017 Howard Frank Mosher First Book Award. It is on sale at the Book Nook in Ludlow and there will be a book signing on 7/6 at at the Ludlow Town Hall Auditorium. Also at that time, Rachel Carter will provide a showing of My Name is Art, a short film based on a story by Asher Ellis. Lots of talent in the family!

Planning Commission Welcomes Citizen Input to New Town Plan — Margo’s Plymouth Report

Reprinted by permission of The Vermont Standard


I think a chipmunk family is living in our outdoor brick fireplace because they seem to be hopping out and scampering along the deck. Our cat doesn’t go out very often, but when I am out there doing exercises and trying to soak up some Vit D, she occasionally scoots out the door. Then she tries to follow their trail. Snow kept her from leaving the deck, but now it has finally melted and she is ready to explore, but so far she has not encountered them!

The Reading Group laughed as we talked at length about the escapades of the senior citizens from The Little Old Lady Who Broke All the Rules. Oh, to be so feisty at 80! The next book, to be discussed on 5/24 will be The Story of Land and Sea by Katy Simpson Smith. Filled with intrigue, including a kidnapping, it is set in a small coastal town in North Carolina during the waning years of the American Revolution. Copies on loan from the Killington Library are available at the Town Office if you are interested.

I have a few May birthdays, but would love to include more – Amber Bergey (5/7), Marcia Bender (5/10), BettyAnn Hayward (5/15). Best wishes!

There were two property transfers recorded this week: 2331 Route 100 for $157,400.00 – Daniel Hreachmack and Mary Kelleher to Daniel and Hannah Bernard. On Chapman Road for $16,000.00 land from Richard Ambrosi to John Genova, Jr.

Also, the Planning Commission will be meeting at 7:00 PM at town hall on Tuesday, May 1, to continue work on the Town Plan. Input encouraged!

Plymouth Students in Play at Woodstock High School’s Yoh Theater; Reading Group Meets — Margo’s Plymouth Report

Reprinted by permission of The Vermont Standard


Another bright, sunny morning – how lovely and hopeful – perhaps spring is here! The scent of skunk has infiltrated the air and I understand that the bear has been out and about in the Weaver Hill/Pollard Road vicinity.

There was quite a crowd for the Community luncheon at Tyson Church last Thursday. Our speaker was Mary Hartnett, who formerly worked at the Pentagon. She shared many amazing statistics about the building and provided a personal look of the numerous and varied things that go on there. She had just left a few weeks prior to 9/11, but knew folks who were in harm’s way.

Tyson Ladies Aid held their first community dinner on Sunday evening and a good number of people attended. There was plenty of spaghetti and assorted food to go with it, plus quite a display of desserts! The donations that were received are slated to go to the Plymouth Memory Tree and the Gill Home.

Thursday, 4/26 is the Reading Group gathering at 6:30 PM at the Plymouth Community Center. We will be discussing The Little Old Lady Who Broke All the Rules by Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg. The crime capers in this book should provide lively discussion. Everyone is welcome.

Two of our youth (Anna Hepler and Eve Cole) are involved in the Yoh Theatre Players production of Fly by Night this coming weekend. This tale includes young love, wonderful music, all taking place against the backdrop of the 1965 blackout in the northeast. Some of us remember it well! Performances are at 7 PM on Friday, 4/27 and Saturday, 4/28. On Sunday, 4/29 it takes place at 3 PM.
