Plymouth Emergency Update – Route 100 Corridor

From Margo Marrone – 10:30PM, September 1

Plans are underway to try to put a dumpster in place in Tyson.  There is a community meeting scheduled for Sat at 10:00 AM at Tyson Church with some of the Emergency Team.  We are hoping to have FEMA forms available at that time.  We have bottled water & instant meals that will be distributed & refreshments will be provided.

I just had a conversation with Steve Woods, Executive Director of the Calvin Coolidge Foundation.  He was able to go to the Coolidge Homestead & wanted folks to know that it is “pristine” up there.  He praised Bill Jenney for vigilantly patrolling the area & making sure that everything is secure.  Nancy Yale at Wilder House is feeding local residents & two helicopters dropped off supplies today.  Water is being provided through a spigot powered by the generator of the Union Christian Church.  Again, everyone is pulling together!

I have just been given word that Hawk personnel have been wonderful during this time, feeding people (with Salvation Army supplies) & checking homes with property management contracts.  Even removing food from refrigerators.  A volunteer  team consisting of Mary Michels, David Dodge, Mike Clarke, Hank Schimpfhauser and Bill & Anne Cherico have been doing exterior inspections at Hawk upon request.  More folks taking care of one another!

Lastly, Michelle Stinson of LPCTV would like pics & would appreciate being allowed to take pictures of historic & tragic event.  This is not an attempt to be nosy, but to document what has happened…..

    As my parents are away on vacation, I’d like to get in there to check on their house for them. Any word on how I can get to Plymouth from either Woodstock or Ludlow?
