By the time this comes out, Town Meeting will have already taken place. I remember when I used to write them up for the Standard. It was fun, but a bit anxiety provoking trying to participate and keep track of everyone else’s comments at the same time. I recall that Gareth used to give me a hand!
The Reach Out Luncheon on Thursday will have music by Adam Boyce and a friend. Come to the Community Room of Tyson Church at 11:15 and stay for lunch~
I know that many folks in town have adopted pets from Lucy MacKenzie. Consider attending their annual Cabin Fever Italian Supper on Saturday, 3/11. Jeanne Matos and her assistants prepare a lovely meal of meat or vegetable lasagna, served with salad, fresh bread, and dessert. There are two seatings at 5:30 PM and 7:00 PM. It goes to a good cause and you can spend a little time with the animals, too! Call 802-484-LUCY or go to the website to make a reservation.
Lauren Skaskiw, 802-855 -7566 or firstname.lastname@example.org, is looking for items for The Plymouth Schoolhouse Licensed Childcare where she plans to set up a Reggio Emilia inspired Childcare. Per the Internet, the Reggio Emilia Approach is an educational philosophy focused on preschool and primary education that was developed after World War II by teacher, Loris Malaguzzi, and parents in the villages around Reggio Emilia in Italy. For more information on the program, check out http://www.literacyfundamentals.org/ In the meantime, Lauren is looking for a baby mobile, foam floor interlocking pieces, baby toys, large baskets, and a Pac and Play Crib.
What fun we had at Reading Group on 2/23 discussing Mink River. Brian Doyle’s style of writing is rather different, but his development of his characters and the plot were enchanting – a captivating read! For our next gathering on 4/20, we will be reading Margot Lee Shetterly’s Hidden Figures, then viewing the movie.
Congratulations to Sahara Bebo, who was the recipient of the 2015 Tyson’s Ladies Aid scholarship for making the Dean’s List at Ithaca College for the second semester in a row!
Thanks to Terry Bascom for trying to assist me a couple of weeks in obtaining a commode for someone following foot surgery. Please be aware that such items are available on loan at the Community Center in town. We did not succeed, however, because of the ice build up by the shed. Ordinarily this is a great resource and I do appreciate Terry’s desire to help and his quick response!
That’s all for this week – send me some news!
