Wow, I can’t believe I am writing this on March 1st. It certainly doesn’t look like spring is around the corner! Yesterday I was able to remove a bit of ice from last weekend’s mixed bag of precipitation. I was so glad that the recent four inches was simply light and fluffy snow. But, who knows what is coming next – at least the lovely sunshine, glistening snow and beautiful blue sky help to brighten our spirits. Anyway, the path to our sugar house is shoveled and tapping out is progressing. Looking forward to the sweet result!
Town meeting is approaching and will be over by the time this appears in the VT Standard. Please note that there are positions with write-in candidates, so if you receive this via the Plymouth Press, please become informed in order to make good choices. Some items are voted on Monday evening at the meeting, while others are by Australian ballot on Tuesday.
How exciting that Lauren Skaskiw- Harootunian has obtained several grants to enhance the Community Center (former elementary school). Her latest one will allow her to expand and provide childcare year round, once she hires additional staff. Knowing Brenda Metzler of the non-profit Let’s Grow Kids, I am sure her mentorship will be very helpful. Certainly there were many of us in town who bemoaned the closing of PES, so it is wonderful to see that the facility is being utilized in ways that benefit all segments of our population.
Starting to plan the next Community Luncheon which will be 3/21. If you are interested in helping, please let me know. We are hoping to have music, too!
