This was a dreary weekend, but the many events taking place helped to make it fun. The Harvest Fair at Ludlow Elementary School on Saturday was busy and festive. Then I scurried up to the Notch to catch the performance by Linda Radtke, accompanied by Arthur Zone called “History Through Song”, that was sponsored by the VT Humanities Council and arranged by Bill Jenney. It was simply marvelous, with a diverse selection of music that included songs from Civil War days, such as ‘Neath the Pines of VT. Also presented was Keep Cool and Keep Coolidge and the closing song was the VT State Song. I believe they had a good crowd at the Site for the Apple Fest, which had many other attractions, including the PFD BBQ and the “Anything Apple Recipe Contest”, which was won by Sheree Vaughn-Tucker with her apple muffins.
We had an animated discussion about America’s First Daughter at the Book Club on 9/29 and we have actually set up the next two books: We are reading We Are Unprepared by Meg Little Reilly for 10/27 and The Shepherd’s Life by James Rebanks for 12/1. We really do have a great time, so think about joining us. Please be aware that Tyson Library will closing after the holiday weekend, so the last day to stock up on books is 10/8!
I am so excited about the Mindfulness Classes on Tuesdays from 6:00 – 7:00 PM with Susan Mordecai at the Community Center. The initial 4 class are 10/18, 10/25, 11/1, 11/8. It is so nice to have activities happening right here in town!
Restaurants in town will be taking a break. The Inn at Water’s Edge will be closing 10/17, but be aware that they will be having a 4 course Thanksgiving Dinner for $25.00.
