As I write this article on Sunday evening, the gardens are being watered! Such variable weather. Tom and I went sailing on Echo Lake on Friday and dark clouds filled the sky at times. They were so dark and pervasive that we couldn’t believe it wasn’t raining. There was a brisk breeze that helped us move along nicely!
Not sure the reason, but attendance was down a bit at the Reach Out Luncheon last Thursday. There was an amazing amount of food – chicken and corn from the Tyson Ladies Aid Bazaar, pasta salad, green salad, and potato salad. Thanks to Jean Fanciullo, Narda DiGioia, and Michelle Pingree for the salads.
Terry Bascom very kindly borrowed the grill from the Echo Lake Inn and grilled hot dogs for us. Joan Day made two jello cakes that were a big hit. Our speaker was June Capron who discussed volunteering she has done since retiring. The teens were particularly interested in learning about service opportunities in the US and other countries.
I understand that refreshments are being served at the Saturday evening (7:00 PM) and Sunday afternoon (3:00 PM) showing of “Irene: Ruin to Renewal” video. Saturday is full, but you can still make a reservation for Sunday by contacting Midge at firstname.lastname@example.org or 672-3086. If you have a favorite cookie recipe and want to make some to share, please let Midge know, too!
By the way, belated anniversary congratulations to Cindy Summer and Steve Heilner! Also, I hope that Sandie Small had a Happy Birthday on 8/11 and Elaine Pauley on 8/24
We are planning to make our organ dedication service at Tyson Church on 8/28 at 10:30 AM, one filled with music, using favorite hymns and noting a little history about them. We hope folks will join us and also stay to enjoy refreshments after the service.
I try very hard not to be political in the column, but it has been brought to my attention that we do have a VT House candidate who is from Plymouth and Keith Cappellini has indicated his desire to give our town some representation in Montpelier, which certainly would be nice for a change.
