New Book Discussion Starts Soon: Margo’s Plymouth Report

Republished with permission from The Vermont Standard

We had an interesting discussion on the Orphan Train at the Book Club meeting last week.  Although it was fiction, it was based upon a difficult period in our country’s history when children were shipped out west in an attempt to find suitable homes for them.  However, we learned that for many, they were used as forced labor instead of receiving any kind of loving nurture.  Our next book for reading is Sparta by Roxana Robinson.  This should provide insightful discussion about the plight of soldiers upon their return when we meet on 1/14 between 11- 1:00.

Well, it sounds like the Town-wide tag sale went well with $1,000 being realized by those who were vendors.  It was also a great opportunity for folks to connect with others in town. According to Terry, most folks want to have another one in the late spring with some changes in the schedule & more publicity.  Stay tuned….

MiaA tardy welcome to Mia Lillian Murray, daughter of Olivia Burroughs & Dillon Murray, who was born 7/31/14.  The family is residing with Nisa & Aaron Adams & daughter Ayla in Tyson.  Enjoy this picture of this little cutie!

Don’t forget the multi-church Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service being held at Tyson Church on Sunday 11/23 at 4:00 PM.  Come enjoy a service of praise & fellowship time afterwards.  Food Shelf donations & items for our Mitten Tree will be accepted.  Everyone is invited!
