The weather seems to have shifted into fall mode with cooler temps, but as I write this on Monday morning, at least the sun is shining! The rain on Saturday did not end in time for the late afternoon outdoor weddings planned around the area, but it had stopped in time for the Melissa Maravell concert at Tyson Church. More than 50 people enjoyed the wide variety of songs & at times joined in the singing. It was a lovely & lively evening!
Before I forget, is there anyone out there who might want to help Jen Flaster with the Plymouth Press? It is such a great vehicle for disseminating information within our community, but Jen has other responsibilities (including her little bundle of joy, Josie), so she would appreciate some help. She assures me it is easy! If you would like to become part of this worthwhile endeavor, please email her at plymouthpress (at) me.com.
We took our weekend guests to the Tyson Library on Saturday & it has really become such a cozy place, filled with an amazing number & variety of books. Monies received in memory of Betty Jarvi & Mary Gross have helped with building restoration & needed improvements. Some of the remaining funds will also be used to purchase new books. The library will be closing for the season on 10/13, but you can obtain books this weekend, then returned them to the book box, which is checked regularly.
Sherry Thornburg, Executive Director of the Ottauquechee Health Foundation (802/457-4188) was our guest at the Tyson Ladies Aid meeting last week. She told us about a number of programs that the Foundation sponsors. There are organizational grants, but also programs to help individuals, such as the Good Neighbor Grant & the Community Care Coordination Program.
Sherry will be the guest speaker at the 10/18 Reach Out Luncheon at 11:00 AM in the Community Room at the Tyson Church. The menu for that day will be soup (3 kinds) & grilled ham/cheese sandwiches. So that we know how much to prepare, if you plan to attend, please call either Kathy Lynds (672-3709) or Betty Aubin (484-9130).
