We were away this weekend visiting family on Oneida Lake in NY. We are so fortunate to have our lovely little lakes in our area but I realized that they are pretty small by comparison! In any case, it is still wonderful to pull right up and take a dip on these hot days.
This coming weekend will be Old Home Day at the Notch. Festivities on Saturday, 8/3 take place from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. You can enjoy craft and farm demonstrations, wagon rides, music, chicken barbecue by Plymouth Emergency Services and much more.
Stop at the church at 11 to learn more about Moxie (President Coolidge’s favorite soft drink) from Merrill Lewis, president of the New England Moxie Congress, who has co-authored a book that can be purchased and signed. After enjoying the noontime delicious chicken BBQ, at 2:47 p.m. you can attend the reenactment of Calvin Coolidge’s 1923 Homestead Inaugural with Coolidge family members on the Homestead porch.
There will be so many activities for all ages and lively music by local favorite, Adam Boyce. I am not going to mention everything that will be happening, but come enjoy this delightful experience for your eyes, ears, & taste buds (food samples, too).
Speaking of food, I already have a dessert for the 8/15 Community Luncheon, but volunteers are needed to make the entree and sides. Although not a church function, Tyson Church very graciously reimburses for the main course ingredients. Anyone want to lend a hand? This monthly event provides a nice lunch break and an opportunity to get to know folks in the area! Still working on a speaker, too.
