Today is Sunday, a crisp sunny day after some heavy downpours & brisk wind during the week. The sun is shining brightly & it feels good to sit outside & reflect. This is especially true as we see the plight of those folks awash in floods in CO. After our experience with “Irene“, the horror of it seems more real. Oh, may the rains stop…..
Speaking of tough situations, Willow Bascom will be leading “Living Well with Chronic Illness” at the former Plymouth Elementary School on Thursdays from 9/26 – 11/21. The group will pursue effective coping skills to deal with ongoing health issues & the limitations that often accompany them. Feel free to call Willow (672-5390) to discuss the program & help determine the best time to meet. The cost is $20 for the book & $5 per class.
Mark your calendar for the Plymouth Cheese & Harvest Festival at the Historic Site on Sat 9/21, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Come enjoy sampling various VT cheeses & tour the Plymouth Cheese Factory. There will also be craft demonstrations, wagon rides, live music, & more. Vintage automobiles will be on display from 1:30 – 3:30. I understand there will also be some yummy pumpkin goodies at the Wilder House! For my info, call 672-3773.
On-line bidding is open for the Bethany Birches auction, which will take place Saturday, 9/28 at the Camp on Lynds Hill. It is such a lovely place, plan to actually attend this fundraising event. Coffee & donuts will be served between 9:00 & 10:00 AM while you preview the items.
A reminder about the collection for Church World Service kits that Tyson Church is undertaking. For the Baby Care Kits: cloth diapers, baby wash clothes, or receiving blankets are needed.

The drop-off places are: the Plymouth Town Office, Green Mountain Sugar House, or the church on Sunday mornings from 9/23-10/7. If you would prefer a monetary gift, so we can purchase items, checks may be made out to Tyson Church, but earmarked CWS & sent to 39 Dublin Rd, Ludlow, 05149.
