Well, the top of Okemo is white, so I assume it is the same at Killington. We certainly can’t complain about our Oct weather, but it appears that winter is announcing itself boldly now that we are into November! Don’t forget the Bridge Celebration on Sat, 11/8 at 2:00 PM, when the Library Trail Bridge will be dedicated. Tyson Ladies Aid will open the Library & will bake cookies. Tyson Church will provide cider. Come join the fun!
I stopped at the town-wide tag sale on Saturday & the selection of items from the 25 “vendors” was quite good. I couldn’t resist a couple of things! It sounds like sales have been excellent, but there are still many wonderful buys, so be sure to visit the Schoolhouse Community Center – Thursday 10-1:00, Friday 1:00-4:00, Saturday 10-4:00, & next Sunday noon-6:00. Many of us regret that we did not bring our items to sell, but Terry said another such sale will likely take place in the spring, so I guess we should start sorting out now!
A joint effort is underway with Tyson Ladies Aid & Tyson Church attempting to decorate a Christmas tree with mittens, hats, scarves, & socks. Some folks are knitting them, but store bought ones are fine, too. Those received by 12/14 will go to the Haven. Items received after that time will be distributed for local needs. You may bring your donations to the church on Sunday mornings between 10:00 & noon or to the Reach Out Luncheon on Thurs 11/20.
Tyson Church will be hosting the Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service at 4:00 PM on Sunday, 11/23 & items can be delivered at that point, too. We usually collect non-perishable food at that service to go to the Food Shelf in Reading or Ludlow, although we also collect such items on a continuous basis & contribute alternately to these two places.
By the way, I heard via the grapevine that congratulations are in order for Janis & Tom Brown, who are celebrating their 50th! Missed Willow Bascom’s birthday on 11/2. Others coming up are Mary Jane Crockett & Ellen Steward on 11/8 & Betty Aubin on 11/17. Best wishes to one & all!
