IRENE RECOVERY NEWS & LINKS
It’s PASTA time again! (Plymouth Area Sports Trails Alliance)
It was great to see the turnout at our last meeting. The Community Center is reserved for Thursday, May 2 at 6 pm for the next meeting.
Here are some topics that will be helpful to touch on as we consider our next steps:
– Mission statement/project brainstorm
– Chapter discussion: Catamount Trail Association or/and Vermont Mountain Bike Association
– Short-term project prioritization/Rivers Trails and Conservation Assistance program application
– Regular meeting schedule
This time around it will be a pasta potluck. If you can, bring something to share. Hope to see you there!
(The Plymouth Schoolhouse will be open for children to play in again, so little ones are welcome as well!)
Yoga class with Dawn resumes on Sunday, April 28th at 10:30am.
All levels welcome, please bring your own mat. $10 per class
The Plymouth Community Center is located at 35 School Drive, Plymouth VT
A great way to start your week off right!

I hope that folks were not adversely effected by the recent storm that conjured up memories of tropical storm, Irene. I think I actually lifted off the bed when that huge clap of thunder sounded, never getting back to sleep again that night! Rising water from streams and lakes was certainly evident, plus rushing water heading down from upper elevations came into play. Hopefully the rain forecast for the next week will be less dramatic.
I know many of us have been baking for the Tyson Ladies Aid bake sale, which will be long over by the time this goes to print. Their next event is the Spaghetti supper on Sunday, 5/5 at the Plymouth Town Building, so mark your calendar.
Ken Harmon shared an interesting story at the Community Luncheon about his experience flying through the air when a runaway freight car hit the steam train in which he was riding near Bellows Falls. Fortunately, he was uninjured! Also, thanks to Joy Donnelly for her wonderful dessert this time – sorry for those of you who missed it.
David Parker, the recruiter for the US Census Bureau in Windsor county also attended this month. He told us that the hours are flexible, the pay is good, and mileage is reimbursed! Free training is also provided. For additional information, go to 2020census.gov/jobs or call 1-855-JOB-2020
These monthly luncheons provide a time to gather and not only share a meal, but also enjoy a social time together. It takes a bit of planning and I have greatly appreciated all of those who attend and those who jump in to help – preparing food, setting up, bringing friends, etc. It would be lovely to have a few more people taking part, so please let me know if you would like to join the “planning committee” or help with food prep or speaking.
Two of the delightful people who formerly attended these luncheons have recently passed on. Dorothy Pingree on 4/9 and Bill Jarvi on 4/10. There will be a Memorial service for Bill at Tyson Church on Monday, 5/6 at 2:00 PM. Daughters, Kristen and Lauren would appreciate hearing your memories of their dad, especially since Bill’s grandchildren from far and wide will also be on hand.

Seems like spring is struggling to pop. Some of us had a mini-blizzard on Tuesday, although it didn’t last too long. I don’t believe I have ever seen such huge snowflakes! Looks like our sad sugaring season will come to an end shortly. I believe most folks have had a questionable season – ours is the worst we have ever had, so I hope the price of maple syrup doesn’t skyrocket.
Ken Harmon will be our speaker at the Community Luncheon on Thursday, 4/18, talking about his experience with a train crash. Hope folks will join us in the Community Room at Tyson Church at 11:30 for chicken, veggies, rolls and dessert.
Please note that the Bridgewater Grange will sponsor a free presentation on backyard composting by VT Master Composter Cat Buxton on Thursday, 5/9 at 6:30 PM. Attendees can purchase one Soil Saver composter per household for $30 and/or a Sure-Close kitchen pail for $5. Pre-registration requested if you’re considering a purchase. Call Ham Gillett at 674-4474 or email email@example.com.

How to Participate as a Vendor at the 6th Annual Plymouth Town Tag Sale
All Plymouth residents are invited to participate as vendors in our Tag Sale on Memorial Day Sunday; to be held at the Plymouth Community Center on May 26th.
To put items up for sale, here’s what you need to do:
Securely attach a tag to every item. Each tag must have both (a) your initials, and (b) the price. (We cannot negotiate a price on your behalf, however you can change prices on your unsold items at anytime during the sale.) Please use 3 initials on your tags, to avoid possible duplication!
Note: We strongly suggest that you use actual tags – ideally, the kind with little strings – and attach them securely with safety pins or by tying the string to your item. We have learned that adhesive labels, tape, and safety pin-secured tags tend to fall off. If your tag falls off, or we cannot read what it says, we will not be able to sell the item.
Deliver your Tag Sale items to the Plymouth Community Center on the following days and times:
Sunday May 19th, 11am-1pm
Wednesday May 22nd, 4:30pm-6:30pm
Saturday May 25th 10:30am-1:30pm
We will have tables for display. You can also provide your own display, if you wish. And, in general, if you have a table to loan us, it will be a big help.
You are responsible for displaying your items. Tables and floor space are available on a first-come, first-served basis. However, your items do not have to be segregated from other people’s items because the tags identify what belongs to you no matter where they are displayed.
While delivering your items, please sign up for a shift to help staff the event. The Sale will be open from 9 am – 6 pm on Sunday May 26th. We need at least 2 volunteers for each of the following shifts:
9 am – 11am
Please plan to pick up what does not sell on the following dates and times.
Wednesday May 29, 4-7 pm
Saturday, June 1, 10:30 am – 1:30pm
Anything unclaimed will be offered to Bridgewater Sustainable Earth Foundation the week of June 5. Anything they do not want will be disposed of through the Plymouth Transfer Station on June 10th.
Cost: There will be a small fee to participate as a vendor. The fee offsets the cost of printing flyers, making sandwich boards to advertise the event, and disposal cost. The fee is $5, and will be subtracted from your total sales. (So, if you don’t sell anything, you won’t pay anything. And if you sell less than $5, you will only pay the amount you sold. Everything over the first $5 will go to you.)
Participants are partners in advertising the event. We will have a downloadable PDF of the event’s advertisement flyer available on May 1. You can use it to print your own flyers, if you wish. We will also provide printed flyers at Plymouth Town Hall starting on Monday, May 1. Please spread them around!
