Well, more strange weather this weekend – rained when not predicted, then nothing when it was supposed to be wet! Looking around the country, however, we are fortunate not to have had heavy rain and flooding, tornados, hail, or spewing volcanoes! Plus the tag sale at the Community Center was mostly undercover, so a few sprinkles was not a hindrance.
Please note the passing of Ed Farmer on May 3rd after an extended illness. Condolences to his wife, Sharon. She was able to gather some of his tools and have a tag sale this past weekend with the help of her daughter and son-in-law.
They Tyson Library, under the auspices of Tyson Ladies Aid is open, basically from 10 AM to noon, Tuesday through Saturday. This tiny building houses an amazing number of books – come check it out!
Our State Parks are open for the season. According to staff at Camp Plymouth, the black flies are waning and the water is chilly, but still nice. Don’t forget that the annual Plymouth Strawberry Festival will take place there on Wednesday, 6/20 with food by Emergency Services, strawberry shortcake and all the fixings by Tyson Ladies Aid, and a wonderful raffle by Tyson Church. This is a terrific way to gather with family and friends, plus meet new folks, as you support these community organizations that do so much for our town. Admission to the park is free for this 5:00 PM event.
The Coolidge Homestead is in full swing in the Notch. Don’t forget the “Grace Coolidge Musicale” on Sunday, June 3.
