Compared to the crowds of the holiday weekend, this one seemed pretty quiet. It was wonderful, however, to attend the gathering for Sam Moyer and his bride, Renee. Although they were married in January, this celebration allowed those of us who have known Sam over the years to meet Renee and offer our best wishes! The occasion was enhanced by lovely music from the Bethany Mennonite church congregation.
The school year is drawing to a close, so be mindful that youngsters may be out and about from now on. I hope to have information about our local graduates for next week’s report.
Although I have only been out on my bike once so far, there have been more bikers on our roads with the nice weather. Some do not seem aware that riding side by side is not a good idea. Many of us, however, try to be mindful of staying to the side and not impeding traffic. Hope we can all be courteous!
It was wonderful to have Erik Johansson at Tyson Church this Sunday. We sang some traditional hymns, but he also played and sang some of his own compositions which were very uplifting. One he even wrote on Sunday morning! We hope to have him back again. In honor of Trinity Sunday, we had Neapolitan ice cream (3 in 1) with toppings!
The prizes for the Strawberry Festival raffle are piling up thanks to the generosity of local individuals and businesses. To date there are over 30, including gift certificates for food, services, and activities. You don’t need to wait until the Festival on 6/17, several of us are keeping a supply of tickets on hand, so feel free to get in touch! All of the proceeds go directly to meet community needs.
I understand that Lauren Skaskiw’s plan to have childcare available at the Schoolhouse Community Center this summer is coming along nicely. She is a licensed Early Childhood Educator, who is currently teaching Preschool. Starting in mid-June, she will be providing care for up to 6 children, ages 3 and above, each day Monday through Friday and she already has a number of youngsters signed up. Check out www.literacyfundamentals.org or call her at 802 855 7566. She is excited about bringing the garden back to life with the children. The resurfacing of the playground space will be undertaken by those at Farm and Wilderness Camp
Please note that good food is again available here in Town. Wilder House (672-4313) at the Historic Site is open for the season, 7 days per week, from 9:00 – 4:00. Tina and Bruce at the Inn at Water Edge (228-8143) are back from vacation and are again offering their Thursday and Friday evening dinner specials. The Echo Lake Inn (228-8602) had their 1st wedding this past weekend. The restaurant will be open from 5:30 – 8:30 PM Monday through Thursday starting 6/8. I guess I should mention that the concession at Camp Plymouth State Park is also open for business!
