Well, our wonderful community event, the Plymouth Strawberry Festival, is coming up on Wed, 6/18 at Camp Plymouth State Park, starting at 5:00 PM. Three of our local organizations are taking part, Emergency Services is handling the burgers, salads, & such; Tyson Ladies Aid will be doing the strawberry shortcake piece; & Tyson Church will be running the raffle, with some terrific prizes. Funds that are raised are used for community needs, plus it is a great way to get out & see folks you might not ordinarily see. Free admission to the park & it will take place rain or shine, so there is no excuse not to be there!
Tyson Library is now open for the season with regular hours from 10:00 to noon on Tues through Saturday. There are evening hours, 6:00 – 7:00 PM on the 1st & 3rd Mondays. Don’t forget the Plaque dedication at 2:00 PM on Sunday, 6/8!
Now you don’t have to leave town to participate in the AARP “SMART DRIVER,” course, because it will be held at the Plymouth School Activity Center on 6/6. Bill Cherico is facilitating this new edition. He can be reached at 228-1823 or wbcherico. The cost is $15 for AARP members & $20 for non-members Registration begins at 9:30 AM & this 4 hour class will start at 10:00 AM, so bring a lunch!
Another beautiful banner has been made for Tyson Church by several of our creative ladies. This one is to commemorate Pentecost – the giving of the Holy Spirit, which is this Sunday, 6/8. It is considered the birthday of the church. Our morning Worship service is at 10:30. Come see if the balloon we released last week in honor of Ascension Sunday is still on the ceiling!
Recently there was another accident on the Tyson/Reading Rd, this time involving 2 people on a motorcycle. You may recall that another rider was actually killed on this road a few years ago. I just want to alert folks to the numerous curves that can pose a real danger in that area. Perhaps it would be helpful to have signs posted there to warn folks, especially those unfamiliar with the road. Please be careful!
