More crazy weather, but at least most of it has been in the evening or overnight. I was really wondering how the fierce Sunday morning thunderstorm would effect church, but most folks seemed to get there just fine. Fortunately the intensity of the storm abated by the time our Worship service began. Not sure the effect on the Blessing of the Animals, but we had a number of dogs in attendance & pictures of dogs & cats to be blessed. The rain had ceased entirely, so we gathered on the lawn with dogs of all sizes announcing their presence & greeting each other! An opening prayer & a story about a therapy dog was shared, then each pet & owner was prayed for separately.
The Book Group will be discussing the Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd on Thurs, 7/31 at 6:30 at the Community Center. Even if you haven’t read it, consider joining us!
Don’t forget that Plymouth Old Home Day is coming up on 8/2 from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm at the Notch. There will be a re-enactment of Calvin Coolidge’s “Homestead Inaugural” & a special presentation by Reeve Lindbergh, author & daughter of the famous aviator. As usual you can enjoy wagon rides, old-time music, sheep shearing, traditional craft demonstrations, & historic children’s games. Bring your appetite for the Emergency Services BBQ at noon!
The following weekend, 8/9 will be the Tyson Ladies Aid Bazaar that is being held at Memorial Park in Ludlow (across from the Baptist Church) from 10:00 – 2:00. As in the past, there will a bake table with lots of yummy goodies; a large array of baskets & gift certificates with individual buckets so you can choose where to place your raffle tickets; & the luscious chicken BBQ with homemade baked beans. Books will be on sale as well. Serving the community through scholarships, sponsoring the Tyson Library, & meeting other local needs is the mission of this group of dedicated ladies. Come out & support their efforts.
