What strange weather, but it has been wonderful for so many outdoor activities as well as the usual autumn cleanup and winter prep. It was also perfect for those of us who participated in the CHaD Hero Fundraiser on Sunday. Melissa ran and I walked the 5K on Team Nolan, a child who overcame his cancer and is now a delightful 6½ year old.
Speaking of youngsters, it is exciting to note the PlayGroup, taking place every second Saturday of the month at The Plymouth Schoolhouse Childcare and Community Playground. The hours are 9 AM to 1 PM, but Lauren says to come at whatever time works for you and enjoy socializing as your child explores the classroom, various play materials and the large playground. There is a basketball court and ample lawn space for running and games. You are asked to bring your own snacks. The cost is $3.00 per child.
We were pleased that EMTs, Dan Stoughton and his son, Greg from the Ludlow Community Ambulance Service were able to join us at the Reach Out Luncheon last week. Many questions were answered and information was given about the ambulance service membership program starting November 1st that costs $45 per year per household and will cover any applicable deductible or co-payments associated with ambulance transports. Plymouth residents who live south of Rte 100A are served by Ludlow. You may obtain an application online.
Just a reminder that hunting season has started for various animals. Archery season for deer and turkey, plus early black bear hunters may be out, so be aware when walking in the woods. VT Fish and Wildlife can provide the particulars.
Although the [President Calvin Coolidge] Historic Site in now closed, keep in mind that the Holiday Open House will take place on 12/2.
