This must be animal week. Susan Mordecai & I saw a fox hanging around Hawk’s pool area the other day. He didn’t seem at all afraid. Then today I saw a bear cub scoot into the woods up the road from our house on Dublin Rd. When I returned home a bit later & started up our driveway, I saw first one cub cross at the top, then a second bounded over from the house side into the woods. They actually were adorable, but I kept wondering where “mama” was!
Interesting Select Board meeting on 9/15 with a presentation by geologist, Kristen Underwood reporting for the Lake Rescue Association about the erosion causing murky water in our lakes. I think it is common knowledge that Money Brook is responsible for much of the problem, but she also pointed out that Patch Brook contributes its share of silt. Although closing Patch Brook Road might ease the issue, there was no support for such a move by those present!
9/27 means 2 big events in Plymouth that should be lots of fun!. Plymouth Bounty Day from 10:00 – 2:00 at the Community Center & the BBC Auction at the camp on Lynds Hill with a preview at 9:00 AM.
Two of our families have been hosting Spanish students from Val D”Aran in the Pyrenees. The Dupont family has Ares, a 15 year old girl with them. Aran, also age 15, is with the Kowalski family. The group of 15 students & 2 teachers is visiting 9/4-9/21 & the teens have visited Burlington & Boston, plus other places of interest while in the USA. Since clothing is apparently less expensive here, they are stocking up!
