Can’t quite get used to writing 2018 yet. We are already a week into the new year and I don’t know where those 7 days went. I suppose hibernating in the house trying to keep warm accounts for some of it! I believe that by the time the paper comes out, temps will have warmed up.
I have noticed that many roads around town still have some snow on them. I am not sure if that contributed to the 2 or 3 accidents on the Kingdom Rd on Sunday morning. One was a FL car that slid off near the S curves. Having driven that road to work in Windsor for years, I know that you really have to be careful and go slowly coming down the hill. Fortunately, I don’t believe anyone was seriously hurt.
The Reading Group will meet this Thursday, 1/11 at 6:30 at the Community Center. We will be discussing Sisters First by Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush. Anyone can join us, even if you haven’t read it. We have lots of laughs!
I understand that there will be a gathering at 10:00 AM this Saturday, 1/13 at the Community Center for youngsters and their families. This has taken place periodically for some time and they do invite others to join them.
There will be a Community Luncheon downstairs at Tyson Church on 1/18 at 11:30. Thanks to Michelle Pingree for offering to make 2 kinds of lasagna – one with meat and the other without. There will be salad, Italian bread, and cookies with ice cream. We are pleased to have Cassie Horner for our speaker, who will tell us more about the Rutland Magazine. This should be a nice way to meet neighbors, share a meal, and enjoy some lively conversation!
