Well, we certainly have been getting the rain we need, but that doesn’t seem to have dampening spirits around our area! Nice to see some colorful leaves these days. The Tyson Reading Rd was bright & beautiful last week & when we went down to Manchester on Sat, the trees were lovely along Rte 100 South.
We had company this weekend & enjoyed a wonderful lasagna dinner at the Catholic Church in Ludlow on Sat evening. I was so pleased that they had made a wheat-free pan, so I could eat there too. Of course we saw a number of Plymouth folks there – some working & some simply enjoying the meal! Bob & Shirley Billings were among the missing, but they were out to dinner for their anniversary instead – congratulations!
Sounds like there was good attendance at the Historic Site both days this past weekend. The 3rd Grace Coolidge Musicale will take place on 10/7 from 3:00 – 4:30 with Susan Schroeder & Abigail Charbeneau playing patriotic & classic 4 hands piano music. Plan on tea at the Wilder House following the performance!
The Historic Site will be closing for the season on 10/14, but please note that the Wilder House will remain open through the rest of Oct & will be serving a full menu. Lunch can be obtained until 2:30 each day!
I understand that this year Camp Plymouth State Park is remaining open through the Holiday weekend, so consider stopping over there. Even if it is too cold for you to swim, it is still a lovely park to enjoy sitting by the water & playing in the fields. Camping continues at Coolidge State Park as well.
Don’t forget Melissa Maravell’s performance at Tyson Church (located just off Rte 100 across from the Echo Lake Inn) at 7:00 PM on Sat, 10/6. She will be singing a wide variety of songs – something for everyone! A free-will offering will be taken & cookies will be provided.
I understand that there will be a hearing on Mon, 10/15 at 6:00 PM to discuss reclassification of Library Rd in Tyson from a Class 3 road to a trail. As most folks know, the bridge from Rte 100 to Dublin Rd along that road was destroyed during “Irene”, so consideration is being given to simply having a foot bridge instead of a car bridge there. This will be an opportunity for community input.
