It certainly appears that winter does not want to release its grip & make way for spring. Hail was bouncing off the deck a few times today, while there were periods when bright sunshine gave the false appearance of a nice spring day. But, it is time to be thinking about clearing the debris from our roadsides, so mark your calendar for Green-Up Day, Sat 5/4. Per Eric Johnson (672-3493), the crew will assemble at the Fire Station as 8:00 AM to receive assignments & pick up green bags. Some folks find another day more convenient, but please be in touch with Eric so that locations can be coordinated. Plan to participate in the potluck lunch at noontime!
According to Carol Goodwin, about 20-30 people attended the meeting at the Coolidge Center which was designed to give an update on the progress of efforts behind the Scenic Route 100 Byway. Plans are moving forward for the corridor to expand to include Plymouth, along with 6 other towns in our area that will add 46 more miles to the system. Eventually another northern segment will bring the total to 138 miles. This designation will include special signs to help promote tourism by noting the special resources in town.
I imagine that many folks have already received the news that our not-so-little grandson, Landon Thomas, made his appearance on Wed, 4/10. At 9 lbs,15 oz & 22 inches, he is a big boy! Everyone is doing well, including older brother, Owen, who so far seems thrilled with the new addition.
Dates to remember: 5/6 for the Selectmen’s Meeting at 6:00 PM to discuss the proposed Zoning Ordinance. Mon, 5/13 for the meeting re: Sheriff coverage for Plymouth, with voting on 5/14.
