That recent rain didn’t actually reduce the huge mounds of snow that have been accumulating, but it did make them slick and shiny! Even with grippers folks have been falling, so please be careful. I am having knee replacement in a little over a week, so I have been extra cautious about staying upright.
The Reading Group is meeting at the Community Center this Thursday at 6:30. I will be interested to hear what others thought of Mozart’s Starling. I am nearly to the end and can’t quite make up my mind about it. Join us even if you haven’t read the book, then you can help choose the next one!
I understand that there are still some openings for Snow Camp at Bethany Birches. Get in touch if you are interested in attending (802-672-5220) Guys and gals in Lynx B grades 3-6, happening 2/24 – 27 and gals in Polar Bear grades 7-9 on 3/9 -11.
Consider hearing President Coolidge (the 1st president to speak directly to the American people via radio), as portrayed by Tracy Messer, at the President Coolidge Historic Site at 2:00 PM n 2/19. He will be sharing portions of the February 22, 1926 speech to the National Education Association.
The Site will be open from noon to 4:00 that day and you can also learn more from Site Administrator, William Jenney about the exciting things that will be happening at the Notch this summer. At 1:00 PM Education Director, Diane Kemble, will make a short presentation on this year’s Calvin Writing Prize topic, What speech would you give as President to advance Civil Rights? Plan to visit the Cheese Factory as well.
We will be having our Ash Wed service at church on 4:00 PM on 2/14. I would also like to take this opportunity to announce that I will be retiring as the pastor of Tyson Congregational Church following the Easter service. Although being part of the church since 1979, I was officially installed there as the minister almost 13 years ago. My new knee and I will be on to the next chapter of my life!
