Tyson Ladies Aid broke with tradition and gathered at the Inn at Water’s Edge for the Christmas party this year. Tina provided a wonderful lunch, served with flair by Bruce. Gifts for the Windsor Youth Services homes, special tissue boxes for the Gill Home and more hats, gloves, and mittens were brought by the members. A good time was had by all!
The Inn at Water’s Edge (228-8143) is back offering Thursday (Italian night) and Friday night dinner specials. Dinner is available other nights with advance reservations, too. The Echo Lake Inn (228-6802) is serving on weekends, but will be open during the week after the 19th.
Quite a crowd gathered at the President Coolidge Historic Site on Saturday for the various events. Of course, the sleigh ride became a wagon ride, but folks didn’t seem to mind the mild weather. When I was leaving, however, I noticed that the horses appeared to be tired of taking the same route repeatedly, but Fred was finally able to move them in the right direction!
The soup, chili, and pies were a big hit at the Wilder House. There were many of us from Tyson Ladies Aid serving and chatting with customers. It was a jovial crew to say the least and at the end, several husbands came over to assist with clean up. Funds raised go for a number of different projects, one of which is the scholarship program serving seniors from WUHS and Black River.
Don’t forget that the lighting of the Memory Tree will take place on Sunday, 12/13 at 4:00 PM at the former Town Office/Historical Society building. Weather permitting, luminaria will light the way to the new Historical Society site at the Schoolhouse Community Building, where the Plymouth Historical Society museum will be open and light refreshments will be served from 4:00 to 6:00. Visitors are welcome to explore the museum and Historical Society members will be available to answer questions.
Another community event will be taking place at Tyson Church on Sunday, 12/20 at 7:00 PM – the Community Candlelight Service. The chorus from Black River High School will be providing some special music, but we will also be singing a number of Christmas carols. As usual there will be a social time downstairs afterward with lots of goodies. If you have a special recipe and would like to bring some cookies, feel free to do so! All are welcome.
