This warm weather wants to fool us into thinking it is still summer, although it is getting darker earlier & there is a definite chill in the air. It is very enjoyable, though! We were unable to get to the Notch for one reason or another, but I understand the Shakespeare event was very well attended. These actors, from many different places, often gather in Killington. This year they decided to perform for the community & the Coolidge Foundation provided the space in the church.
I understand from Kathy Lynds, who took her grandsons – Mathew, Jake, & Jon to the Children’s Stage with Alastair Moock, that it was a wonderful interactive time for youngsters.
It sounds like the Notch was buzzing with activity this weekend with over 300 visitors on Saturday & 200 or more on Sunday. The Folk & Blues Festival attracted a good number of people both days. This is the first time in years we have missed it!
Congratulations to Midge Tucker who was elected President of the General Federation of the Women’s Clubs in VT. Fran Derlinga was elected Vice President.
September is VT Archaeology month & there will be another Tales of the Notch Cemetery on 9/18 at 2:00 PM, a time with local historians who will discuss the finely carved slate stones of the late 1700s & the final resting places of the Coolidge family & other Plymouth notables such as the spiritualist Achsa Sprague.
