Well, the weather put an abrupt yet hopefully temporary halt to the sugaring season, but I understand from friends that skiing is still quite good. Looks like Okemo will likely be open until mid-April. With that storm predicted for this week, it is possible that winter sports will be continuing for some time. Looks like Punxsutawney Phil has been foiled!
Easter is early this year, 3/31, so it is doubtful that spring clothes will be on display that day. Tyson Church will be having a Maundy Thursday meal (6:00 PM) & service (7:00 PM) on 3/28. It is a meaningful time to help prepare our hearts for the joy of Resurrection. We will again decorate our large wooden cross for Easter morning & folks will be able to take flowers from it when they leave. Consider joining us!
Just so you know – the restaurant at the Echo Lake Inn closed for the season this past weekend, but rooms are still available.
I understand that Kevin Laski was the winner of last week’s VT Standard photo contest with a lovable furry dog enjoying the warmth of a fire – congratulations.
So, that’s it for this week. Honestly, I need a little help with the column these days, since I am not out & about that much. Please take pity on me & send me some info!
