Margo Marrone’s Plymouth Report

Republished with permission from The Vermont Standard

4/27/14

Even though we have had some lovely, warm days, there is still a rather cold breeze at times. I suppose that is why we still have some piles of snow at our house – one of which I backed into this morning in our turn around! Clean-up is underway for those of us who make maple syrup after a rather strange sugaring season. By the way, did anyone see the snow owl that was perched on the roof of Tiki’s business on Rte 100, across from the Tyson Store. It was after church when it was spotted, which seems a strange time & place……

Don’t forget the Historical Society Tour on 5/4. Meet at the Community Building at 2:00 & finish up with a tea at the Echo Lake Inn around 4:00. There will be commentary on the bus, so most often walking will not be necessary for the 6 or so points of interest. Come, even if you haven’t pre-registered, join the fun & learn some new facts about our town!

I feel remiss that I do not always recognize the names of the youngsters living in town & therefore do not include their achievements in this column. I did see that congratulations are in order for Kyleigh Savery, since she made the honor roll at Black River! Please let me know what our students are doing, so they can receive the recognition they deserve!

I understand that Bobbi Lynds put the GREEN UP DAY notice on Plymouth Facebook, but of course I am not a Facebook person & did not see it! In any case, she has agreed to take on this project so with the help of Julie Dupont, our annual roadside clean-up effort will take place on Saturday, 5/3. Folks can pick up green bags at the back of the town building at 8:00 AM & receive an assignment of an area to clear. As in the past, there will be a potluck lunch at noon. Traditionally it has been a tasty feast with all ages enjoying it!

It is suggested that you wear sensible shoes for walking along the roads, gloves & bright colors or a safety vest. Thanks to ABLE Waste for accepting these green bags over the next three weeks for those who can‘t participate on Saturday, but see an area in need of picking up & go to it! In addition to volunteers to clear along the roadways, pick-up trucks are needed to haul trash back to the town building. as the volunteers leave the filled bags along the road. Contact Bobbi Lynds with any questions – 603 443 2198 or Blynds603@gmail.com.

A youth time is planned for after-school on 5/7 from 3:30 to 5:30 at Tyson Church. Cheryl Bishop (802-345-9525) & Denise Dean will be offering crafts & discussing the blessings of mothers & how we can recognize them on their special day. All are welcome.

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned the passing of Kathy Tuttle. We will remember her at Tyson Church during the time of our regular service at 10:30 AM, Sunday 5/11 with her favorite hymns. Her son Charlie will share some of his memories with us. Cookies will be served & we welcome all who would like to attend. In addition, there will be a time to meet Kathy’s family, including her 5 children, spouses, & other family members on Saturday, 5/10 at Kathy’s house on Scout Camp Road between 11:00 AM & 2:00 PM. It will not be a formal service, but refreshments will be served.
