What a great turnout for the Reach Out Luncheon last Thursday. Norm Aubin & Rudy Gross were cooks extradinaire at the grill, which Laurence very kindly loaned us from the Echo Lake Inn. Since we did not have a speaker, I read a short story about a lost cockatiel named Rocky, then we talked about angels in our lives. During my illness, there have been many & some of them were sitting right there!
A reminder about the festivities at the Notch on Saturday, 8/4. Come enjoy craft demonstrations, wagon rides, sheep shearing, & live music. Bring your appetite for the Emergency Services chicken BBQ!
Condolences go out to Steve & Cindy on the sudden passing of their beloved horse, Rocky. Hopefully a suitable companion for Moses will be found soon. Thanks to Shawn Bemis for helping with the burial.
Another upcoming event is the Tyson Ladies Aid Bazaar, taking place on Sat 8/10 at Veterans Memorial Park in Ludlow from 10:00 AM- 2:00 PM. Folks may remember that it used to be held at Tyson Church on the 3rd Thursday of August, but times have changed & there is more exposure in Ludlow & better attendance on the weekend.
There is still an amazing food table with lots of luscious baked goods. Gift certificates & various theme baskets are offered in the raffle – something for everyone & you get to place your tickets individually for whatever suits your fancy. A yummy chicken BBQ with tables under the trees provides a great lunch. There will be a book sale, too!
Tyson Ladies Aid is a group of ambitious & lively ladies (the husbands often lend a hand) who fund-raise to support the Tyson Library, help with the monthly Reach Out Luncheon (along with Tyson Church), & contribute funds for many community needs in the surrounding area. Scholarships this year went to graduating seniors Marina Turco at BRHS & Kiersten Weiss at WUHS
Some of you may have experienced delays as a portion of the Kingdom (Tyson/Reading) Rd was being paved. A minor inconvenience & what an improvement! That reminds me, a warm welcome to Tyson for Morgan, JP, & Harper.
Lastly, please contact Terry Bascom at 802-672-5390 or at firstname.lastname@example.org with ideas for the use of the former Plymouth Schoolhouse. Terry has been hired by the town to help facilitate the utilization of this space. Possible ideas are a retail or business space, but it is hoped that other community events/programs can be provided there as well, such as classes, demonstrations, or service & informational programs.
