More amazing weather – what a great place to live! No hurricanes bearing down upon us or forest fires threatening. Still plenty of time to enjoy our lakes and streams before winter sets in. I took our grandsons on a bike ride to Buttermilk Falls before school began and we walked down to the water. I never learned to skip rocks and apparently it is not a skill that improves with age!
Registered voters, don’t forget to review the proposed Town Plan so you can vote knowledgeably on Tuesday, 9/10, at the Town Hall between 10:00 am and 7:00 pm. You can read it on the Plymouth website or pick up a copy at the Town Clerk’s Office.
Recently I attended a very informative session in Londonderry about fraud and scams given by the VT Dept of Financial Regulation, which deals with banking, insurance and securities issues. One important tip was never to put a payment with your check inside in your mailbox to go out. Anyone can come along and gain considerable information about you and your bank account.
We learned that a scam differs from fraud because basically you provide information, albeit often unintentionally, that allows the financial consequences. Three delightful folks from this agency are going around the state alerting folks to various scams. Go to https://dfr.vermont.gov/ or call 802-828-3301 to learn more.
Please note that Tyson Community Church will be having an ice cream social on Sunday, 9/15 from 2-3:30 as a way to celebrate and introduce their new pastor, Terry Bascom. All are invited!
This lush setting was overflowing with people listening to great music at The Plymouth Folk and Blues Festival this past weekend.
