Margo Marrone’s Plymouth Report

Republished with permission from The Vermont Standard

3/26/12

Creatures abound!  The other day while Tom & I were out for a walk, we came across a male & a female mallard on Dublin Rd.  They crossed the road to where neighbors formerly had chickens.  The water in the brook was moving very rapidly – certainly not a tranquil pond setting, so they seemed to appreciate the bread Kathy Wasco threw out for them.

At a pond on the other side of town, a young bull moose has been causing some excitement.  The way I heard it from Elaine Gambone, when the moose appeared at the DePaul’s pond, one of the horses was spooked, broke loose & ended up all the way down to the Berkman’s (Fred Pope’s former residence), necessitating a long walk home!

Please note that the Mon, 4/16 Selectmen’s hearing on the Town Plan is taking place at 6:30 PM.  Often meetings start at 7:00, so be aware of this different start time if you want to attend.  I know there are concerned citizens on both sides of the proposed gravel pit issue, so this meeting might draw a crowd, since the Plan includes provisions for the types of businesses seen as appropriate for Plymouth.  It would be nice if the discussion could be courteous & not reminiscent of the incivility of the school debates.  Focusing on the issues & not on personalities, with a desire to hear everyone’s point of view with an open mind, will be important.

I am sad to report that there have been some robberies in our area – local businesses along Rte 100.  The Tyson Store & the Green Mountain Sugar House both had their front doors smashed on the same night.  Although the perpetrators fortunately did not do a significant amount of damage, losses were incurred & the sense of security has been shattered.  Just to set the record straight, we keep no money at Tyson Church…..

Palm/Passion Sunday is 4/1 & Easter is 4/8, both of which will be celebrated at our regular Sunday morning Worship services at 10:30 AM.  Also, all are welcome to attend our Maundy Thursday meal & service, starting at 6:00 PM on 4/5.  We will share in the Lord’s Supper that evening.
