Nice weekend weather-wise here I understand & it was lovely where we were in RI as well! Glad to be heading north on Sunday, since the flow of out-of-state vehicles was quite heavy coming toward us. We stopped at the Cathedral of the Pines in Rindge, NH on the way home. If you haven’t been there, it is a lovely spot welcoming all faiths with beautiful gardens & “a memorial honoring all Americans who served our nation”.
Well, we had a well-attended Reach Out Luncheon (sponsored jointly by Tyson Church & Tyson Ladies Aid) on 8/21 in the downstairs Community Room at the church. Our speakers were Matt Denhart, Executive Director & Rushad Thomas, Program coordinator for the Calvin Coolidge Foundation.
Recent events were discussed & also an optimistic message about spreading the legacy of Calvin Coolidge across the country with presentations in NYC, MA, CA, & even Coolidge AZ! Thanks to Kathy Lynds for arranging our guest speakers, who are welcome anytime The teens were not able to help this time, but Matt & Rushad jumped right to help clear tables!
Looking forward to the Book Group discussion of Defending Jacob on Thurs at 6:30 at the former PES building, the home of our Community Center. It was quite an interesting story with a number of twists & turns. Feel free to attend even if you have not read the book & listen to the conversation about it!
Hoping for good weather for the Plymouth Folk & Blues Festival at the Historic Site over Labor Day Weekend – both Saturday & Sunday from 2:00 – 5:00 PM . Remember that It will take place rain or shine!
Hawk Inn & Mtn Resort extends an invitation to the community to attend the dedication of a special garden in memory of Mike Bivins on Sat, 8/30 at 2:30 PM. A plaque will be place at this area near the reception center, where Mike had cultivated a lovely grouping of plants.
