Please note these services at Tyson Church. Palm Sunday is 4/13 & we will be distributing & waving palms at our 10:30 Worship Service.

Our Easter celebration, 4/20 will include our flower-laden cross, from which folks may take these lovely symbols of new life home at the end of the service. All are welcome.

At our Tyson Ladies Aid meeting last week, Easter plants were distributed to be taken to various people in the community. Don’t forget the Bake Sale at the Shaws shopping Center in Ludlow on 4/18. It begins at 9:00 AM & even though there are lots of yummy home-baked goodies, folks lineup early to purchase them! All of the fundraisers go to provide financial or other help within our area. Decisions are currently being made about our $1000 scholarships to both Black River High School & Woodstock Union High School for graduating senior continuing with their education.
Terry Bascom is still seeking participants for the Summer Garden program at the Plymouth Schoolhouse. It is open to all ages & can be especially fun for youngsters, whose parents want a space to teach gardening skills. Non-genetically modified seeds will be provided & organic methods will be utilized for the 2’x 25‘ plots. What a great opportunity!
Condolences to the family of Robert Earle who passed away 3/29. There was a very nice obituary in the Standard last week. Also, to the family of Henry Tanzer, who formerly live on the Kingdom Rd, but who had more recently lived in Cavendish.
Last, but certainly not least – Happy Birthday to Liza Ward on 4/12!
