Some news on our young people! Congratulations to Sage Allen who made the 8th grade honor roll at Black River. Also, Holli Olsen placed 6th in the Slalom & 16 in the GS, as Woodstock competed at Burr & Burton recently as District Runners up. She is looking forward to competing in the States on 3/4 at Stowe. Stewart Olsen is half way through a 3 month program at Killington Mountain School, where he competes on the Freestyle A Team. Christy Harris is part of the Nordic ski team. We certainly do have some academically talented students & good athletes in our area. There are probably others that could be included if you let me know
For those who pursue a different kind of sport, State law requires that shanties be removed from the ice before it becomes unstable or no later than March 31. Guess folks don’t want to take a chance – the fine for leaving an ice-fishing shanty on the ice can be as high as $1,000.
Work continued at the recent Historical Society meeting on programming for the upcoming year, with a lecture scheduled by Bill Hoyt on Gold Mining in Plymouth, which will take place on April 7th at the town hall. Painting will soon begin at the school to refurbish their new space. In addition they are attempting to correct some errors in the Plymouth Album in anticipation of a reprint or at least an addendum. Anyone that has read the book and knows of errors should contact Barb Lurie. Work is continuing to compile stories, photos and videos of TS Irene as they related to Plymouth. Anyone who has not already given copies are encouraged to do so.
Ready for some family fun in our wonderful outdoors? Church of our Saviour is having a free family snowshoe for all ages on trails surrounding the church on Sunday 3/3 from 1-3 PM (alternate date, March 4th if there is inclement weather). Equipment will be provided if needed. Gentle sledding will also be available with refreshments by the fire in the guest house afterwards. Contact Betsy Tonkin for more information (672-3179).
