I am writing on the 1st of October – the beginning of a new month! The weather has certainly shifted this week. It was only last Monday that Tom and I took Owen and Landon swimming at Camp Plymouth State Park after school, then on Friday some of my planted were frosted. Folks are asking about the fall colors and wondering if we have lost the brilliance of autumn for this year. I had been enjoying the orange and red beginning to show on the Tyson/Reading Road before the heat wave hit. Guess we will have to wait and see!
There seems to be a baby boom going on around here! Kat and Ed Robbins and older brother Jasper welcomed Oliver John Robbins, who was born on 9/16 (also Kat’s birthday!) at Alice Peck Day Hospital. Congratulations!
Speaking of youngsters, coming up Saturday 10/7 from 9:30-11:30 AM, there will be a free Family Fun Event at the Farm and Wilderness’s Barn Day Camp. it’s open to the public, which will provide a great opportunity to see the facility and meet some new folks. For more information, you can visit www.farmandwilderness.org/familyfun.
I hope that all of you have been frequenting our local restaurants because it is time for many of them to take a much needed break. I understand the last night the Echo Lake Inn will be serving dinner to the public is Sunday October 15th. They ask that you call (802-228-8602) ahead for reservations. The Inn at Water’s Edge will serve their last meal of the season on Saturday, 10/14. Their phone number is 802-228-8143. I am not sure about the Five Corners Pub, so you will need to stop in there to check it out!
Get ready for many fabulous happenings at the President Coolidge State Historic Site this coming weekend at the Plymouth Notch Antique Apple Fest on 10/7 from 10:00 – 4:00. For music lovers, plan to attend t he final Grace Coolidge Musicale of the season, taking place at 4:00 PM on Sunday 10/8.
I want to thank everyone for their generosity in participating in our church effort to help flood victims through the UCC Emergency USA fund. We are nearing the $2,000 mark and will be sending in the money shortly. If you would still like to participate in the flood relief effort, checks can be made out to Tyson Church, with the notation that it is for flood assistance. The mailing address is 39 Dublin Rd, Ludlow 05149, even though we are actually located in the town of Plymouth!
