Brrr… an autumn chill in the air on Sunday.  A foretaste of what is to come.  But the weather has been lovely, so we really can’t complain.   I walked up into our woods a bit and took some pictures of the shadows emerging through the falling leaves now that the sun is a bit lower in the sky.  Just like life, changes are inevitable, but each produces its own beauty.

There were numerous events going on this weekend, but we were busy doing things at home.  I understand that Rick Russell was at the Notch taking pictures, so hopefully some of the Antique Apple Festival activities will be in the paper.

We did manage to get to the roast pork supper at the Bridgewater Congregational Church on Saturday evening and it was delicious!  Saw many Plymouth folks – the

Duponts, both older and younger Sailers, Shirley Billings picking up dinners to go and I heard that Dale Lynds had already been there to obtain meals for Bea and John Wheeler.  We brought Karen Evans and John Hennelly with us because we know where to find good food and we love to have others accompany us!

A cacophony of sound accompanied our opening hymn this past Children’s Sunday at Tyson Church with a number of different “instruments” being played by the five 2 – 4 year olds in attendance.  Mrs B (Cheryl Bishop) led the discussion on kindness and assisted the children with a special craft while we adults considered the meaning of random acts of kindness.

The Bethany Birches 50th anniversary weekend and the benefit auction (9/26) are fast approaching.  You can bid on-line, but being there is much more exciting!  For more information, call the office at 802-672-5220 or go to camp@bethanybirches.org

It is with sadness that I report the passing this part week of Michael Alexander (husband of Tammy Hayes Alexander).  It was back in the late 1990’s that he worked at the Echo Lake Inn.  Calling hours will be 5:00 – 7:00 PM on Saturday, 10/3 at Aldous Funeral Home in Rutland. Our condolences to the family.

On a completely different note, just a reminder that open enrollment for Medicare, Part D pharmacy coverage and supplemental plans begins 10/15 – 12/7/15.  This is the time to consider the various plans that are available in VT and evaluate your needs for 2016, so you can make appropriate changes.
