5/11/15

April Showers (frogs)Well, I guess spring is really here!  Not just the temps, but the black flies have hatched and the hummingbirds are back, plus some thunder storms have passed through our area.  Yet these are minor inconveniences and take nothing away from heading outdoors without bundling up.

Mothers Day turned out to be less stormy than predicted, which was very nice.  I was taken out for brunch and I hope all mothers were treated well on this special day.  At church youngsters heard a cute story and made handprints on prepared cards with a lovely poem honoring moms.

A belated Happy Birthday to Justus Pingree, whose birthday was 5/5!

reading-clubWe had a nice book discussion of Still Alice last Thursday and thanks to Betsy Tonkin (with some help from Russ!) the movie was streamed and we were able to watch it at the Community Center.

The Reach Out Luncheon will be Thurs 5/21, offering steak and cheese sandwiches, salad and yummy dessert.  The guest speaker with be Patti Potter, the supervisor of the Ludlow Transfer station, who will discuss some of the new state regs, so plan to join us.

Antiques and Treasures post imageGearing up for the Memorial Day weekend Antique and Treasure sale.  I guess with the onset of bugs, I won’t mind staying inside to start marking our offerings!  Consider participating by getting in touch with Terry at 672-5390 or terry.bascom@yahoo.com for details and to sign up for a 3 hour shift.

Tyson Ladies Aid is moving ahead with its part (the strawberries) of the Strawberry Festival, which will be Wed, 6/17 at Camp Plymouth State Park, from 5:00 to 8:00 PM.  The church will be starting its part (the raffle that goes solely for community projects like the RO luncheon and needed funds to community members) by looking for raffle items.  Emergency Services will be canvassing town for volunteers to make salads and such for the BBQ.   I will note more details soon.
