Tom & I enjoyed listening to Gypsy Reel at Hawk on Thursday evening & we didn’t find the bugs to be bothersome. It is so wonderful to hear good music & look up into the sky & watch the clouds – so peaceful & it is free! This Thursday at 7:00 will be John Lyons on electric & acoustic guitar. By the way, I heard that the fireworks were cancelled at Hawk on the 7th – too late to get the word out about the change….
Please note that the Historical Society meeting will be held 7/22 – 4:00 PM at Town Hall. Be aware of this change of place! Lots going on at the Notch for Old Home Day, 8/4. I am curious about the three famous early Plymouth women who will be portrayed at 10:00 AM. Later in the afternoon there will be a presentation on Women’s History in the Grace Coolidge Era. The rededication of the Coolidge Homestead will feature Gov Jim Douglas & Coolidge family members
Music will be provided by Farm & Wilderness musicians & also fiddler Adam Boyce. There will be crafts, games, wagon rides along with traditional Vermont artisans & don’t forget the Emergency Service chicken BBQ – always a delicious meal. If that is not your cup of tea, the Wilder House will also be serving food. Come out & enjoy the fun! If Sat doesn’t work for you, consider attending the Grace Coolidge Musicale on Sunday, 8/5 from 3:00 to 4:30.
The anniversary of Tropical Storm Irene visiting our area will be upon us shortly. In conjunction with his position with Starting Over Strong Vermont, Terry Bascom sent out a wonderful list of resources. One of them Listen, Protect, Connect falls right in line with our planned celebration at Tyson Church on 8/26/12 – We‘ve Come A Long Way, Baby – Let‘s Give Thanks!
We hope that folks from our community will join us to tell stories of how neighbor helped neighbor & to rejoice in the progress that has been made. In addition to time together in the church, a potluck luncheon is being planned. Laurence has very kindly offered the use of the tent at the Echo Lake Inn for this part of the event. Please mark your calendars & plan to attend!
