We are into August – where does the time go! It already seems to be getting dark earlier, but here is hoping we have many more delightful days before the weather turns. These cooler nights are great for sleeping!
Although the crowd seemed a bit smaller, there were still plenty of people on hand for Old Home Day at the Notch. I was mainly helping at the Emergency Services BBQ, so I didn’t get to see all of the other activities, but this adorable little girl, Avery, with the American Flag was just too cute not to get a picture. Her dad, Matthew Denhart is the Executive Director of the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Foundation.
Coming up this next weekend is the Tyson Ladies Aid Bazaar that will be held at the Veterans Park in Ludlow from 10 – 2 on Saturday, 8/10 or the Ludlow Community Center in case of rain. Members have been busy creating marvelous baskets for the raffle – something for everyone, even ones that will interest men shoppers. Worth checking out!
The luscious chicken BBQ will take place at noon, but the Bake Table will be loaded with wonderful goodies as well. The Book Sale may need to be expanded to two tables his year, so come peruse, then simply fill a bag and make a donation.
This fundraising event helps to ensure the continued good works of TLA – scholarships for graduating seniors from both BRHS and WUHS, upkeep of Tyson Library, and meeting many other community needs.
Thanks to the several local folks who will be preparing food for the 8/15 Community Luncheon downstairs at Tyson Church. Come around 11:15 to chat and hear some travel stories before we dive into lasagna, salad and dessert. There is no charge, but donations are always accepted. We really appreciate the help provided by teens from Windsor County Youth Services with serving and cleanup.
After so many years in the community and I might add for us a number of delicious dinners at the Inn at Waters Edge, there is a tinge of sadness bidding farewell to Bruce and Tina. It will be a well-deserved rest, however, and we wish them well.
