More crazy weather – here and elsewhere. I started washing and putting away warm weather clothes. Silly me, I had to dig some of then out again! I officiated an outdoor wedding at the Echo Lake Inn on Saturday and it rained up until 30 minutes before the ceremony, but we did proceed as planned. The church was cold and damp Sunday morning, so we turned on the heat briefly. Then when we opened the door to leave, that hot, humid weather hit us full force. I do hope that all of you have been enjoying the amazing foliage colors and that spectacular sunset on Saturday!
Some exciting news – “Irene- Ruin to Renewal” has received 2nd place in the Northeast regional Alliance for Community Media awards, in the documentary category. This is quite an honor and testimony to the hard work that went into making it! (Copies are available from the Plymouth Historical Society.)
I understand that the 15th Annual Bethany Birches Benefit Auction went very well. I love what was on the BBC website and I quote “This particular Saturday was abnormally warm. A perfect match for the abnormal generosity at the auction. We started out with Larry’s (Derstine) syrup. Each quart sold for $400! That’s abnormal”.
Have you been waiting for Yoga to come to the Community Center? Well, it already started on 10/8! Morning Yoga With Dawn takes place from 10:30am-11:30am Sunday mornings. The cost is $12 per class or 10 classes for $90. All levels welcome, but you need to bring your own mat.
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot was an interesting read and should provide for lively discussion at the book club meeting on Thursday, October 12 at 6:30 pm at the community center. Come join the group!
One last reminder, the Historic Site is still open and getting there is much easier these days with Rte 100A open. So, you still have time to visit through 10/22, grab a bite to eat at Wilder House, and check out the Cheese Factory!
