More nice weather this weekend & judging by the crowds, lots of folks came to VT to enjoy it! We were at the Echo lake Inn for dinner on Sat evening & had a wonderful meal. The dining room will be closing after this weekend & reopening for Thanksgiving.
Tina & Bruce at the Inn at Water’s Edge are still having their $25 dinner special on Thursday evenings. The choices for this week are: grilled hanger steak with green herb sauce, chicken breast with Marsala, spinach, & fontina cheese, plus oil, garlic & lemon salmon with arugula. Be sure to make a reservation at 228-8143 to enjoy one of these wonderful meals & a glass of wine.
Don’t forget that we are into hunting season now. Tyler Pollender-Savery shot a 5 point buck this past week. Bow & arrow for deer continues through 10/27, with Youth Deer Weekend being 11/9-11/10. Regular deer season is 11/16- 12/1. Black bear season goes through 11/15 & the early turkey season goes from 11/16 – 11/24. For a complete list go to
How exciting that Emily DuPont (an 8th grader at WUMS) & four of her friends from the Vermont Center for Dance Education auditioned & have been selected to be part of the Albany Berkshire Ballet’s performance of the Nutcracker at The Paramount in Rutland on December 22nd. They are cast as soldiers, but they are also auditioning for the pointe shoe part of angels. Good luck!
Ian Dupont is participating in the Farm to School program, an extension of his working in the school garden this past summer. I see that Holli Olsen is adding her talent to the Girls Field Hockey team. I am sure that are many more interesting things happening in the lives of the other young people in town. Please let me know, so they can be included & cheered on!
Wonderful news that Kathy & Bob Lynds’ daughter, Elizabeth Howes & her husband David of Bally PA. completed the adoption of 6 year old Matthew on 10/2. He has been with them for some time & his official name is now Matthew Wynn Howes.
A last reminder about the Melissa Maravell concert at 7:00 PM at Tyson church on Friday, 10/18. The church is located at 39 Dublin Rd, right off Rte 100, across from the Echo Lake Inn. The concert is free, but donations are welcome & will be applied to community outreach. Refreshments will be served & we are handicapped accessible.
One of the projects that the church is sponsoring is the We Can Make a Difference program to gather School & Baby Kits for Church World Service. We appreciate the community support & will have at least 15 school & 5 baby kits, to be assembled on Sat, 10/26 at 10:00 AM downstairs at the church. We would especially like to have the young people in our area join us as we put them together & ready them for mailing.
