Cold, cold, cold – what else can be said for the beginning of spring this year! That light dusting of snow on Sat night did whiten things up a bit. My brother-in-law in Mohegan Lake, NY sent a picture of their 4 inches of snow and I understand that further south in VT a few inches fell. Well, good for them – I am ready to be done with winter, although it doesn’t appear that winter is done with us yet! Ice abounds!.
Condolences to the Brisson family on the passing of Aunt Millie, a most delightful and devout woman who recently moved to our area and attended our church until her health issues prevented her from doing so. Also please note the passing of Kevin McDermott, whose children Crystal and Brian live in town. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
Congratulations to Holli Olsen on being selected for the US Presidential Scholars Program. Nice picture with Gov Shumlin, too. I would love more news about our wonderful young people, so please send some my way.
Don’t forget the Reading Group on Thurs at 6:30 PM at the Schoolhouse Community Center, where we will be joined by local author Jon Clinch to discuss his book. What Came After. Aren’t we fortunate to have such a talented bunch of people living in our town!
Looking forward to the annual Cabin Fever Dinner at Lucy MacKenzie Humane Society on Saturday, 3/28. There may still be time to make a reservation by calling 484-LUCY. The 9 year old cat we adopted from there last year is still tearing around our house like a kitten!
March is moving along quickly and this Sunday is Palm Sunday. Consider joining us at 10:30 AM to wave palms and sing praise. On a more sombre note, plan to attend our Maundy Thursday supper at 5:30 PM and service at 6:30 PM on 4/2. All are welcome!
