Although the Historic Site has officially closed, some dates have been arranged for bus tours & I understand that several hundred people enjoyed tours there this weekend. A bit sad that the leaves have mostly blown down, but I imagine they still enjoyed themselves & learned a great deal about Calvin Coolidge! Hopefully Nancy has been busy at the Wilder House – consider stopping in for lunch sometime this month…..
Oops – I forgot to note Bill Jarvi’s birthday on 10/11! Family was down on the weekend to celebrate & to help with some work around the place. I have noticed that even when chores are being done there is still a party atmosphere!
Just wanted to note a typo in the paper last week. Tyson Library closed on 10/13, not 10/30, so sorry if you missed your chance to pick up some books. By the time this goes to print, the meeting to discuss the reclassification of Library Road will have happened.
Tyson Congregational Church warmly welcomed new members on Sunday – Mike Clarke, June Capron, Denise Dean, & Maddie Dean & associate member, Kathy Tuttle!
Lots of seasonal changes taking place. The Plymouth Vermont Historical Society has closed its doors for the winter season. Of course, the collection can still be accessed by contacting one of the officers. Email addresses are posted on the Historical Society link through the town of Plymouth’s website until their own website is established. A move to the former school building is anticipated in the spring of 2013. The new membership drive will begin in January 2013 – memberships & contributions are always needed & appreciated!
Some of our local restaurants will also be taking a break. The Echo Lake Inn will stop serving on Saturday, 10/20 & reopen for Thanksgiving. Lodging is still available. The River Tavern at Hawk will also be closing 10/20 & it will reopen some time in Dec.
