We were sitting on a friend’s deck overlooking Echo Lake late afternoon on Saturday and watched the clouds overtake the sky, obliterating the blue. Rumbles of thunder could be heard in the distance and the beach at Camp Plymouth State Park suddenly became quiet and empty. At least most the day was lovely! Hope you can get in some days at the park because it will be closing on 9/13.
Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances, the Reach Out Luncheon BBQ on Thursday, 8/20 willnot be held at Happy Acres, but will take place in the Community Room at Tyson Church. Thanks to Tom at the Echo Lake Inn for loaning us the grill again this year and to Terry Bascom, our BBQ chef extraordinaire!
The graveside service for Jean Hoskinson will be held at the Notch Cemetery on Friday, 8/21 at 11:30. Folks will be gathering at Wilder House following the service.
Don’t forget the Plymouth Historical Society event on Sun 8/23 at 1:00 PM at the Town Hall. This will be a presentation by State geologist, Marjorie Gale, who will be tying together events in history with the geology of our area. It is free and refreshments will be served.
Keep in the mind the various activities that will be taking place in the Notch in the beginning of September. The Plymouth Folk and Blues Festival will be from 2:00-5:00 PM on both Sat 9/5 and Sun 9/6. Organized by Jay Ottaway, it is usually a wonderful mix of music. At noon on Sat, 9/5 don’t miss the amazingly talented group of actors who will perform “Shakespeare Alive!” at the Union Christian Church.
