Next Community Luncheon, Bethany Birches Camp Auction ~ Margo’s Plymouth Report

Reprinted with Permission from The Vermont Standard

9/7/19

I would like to back up for a minute to comment on the overflow attendance and wonderfully celebratory mood that engulfed the activities at the Coolidge Homestead over the Labor Day weekend. The Union Christian Church filled to capacity for “Shakespeare Alive” and the audience was not disappointed with this very witty performance.

The crowd continued to grow over the two days of the Folk and Blues Festival. The music was lively and those in attendance were totally engaged. Of course, the weather was ideal – sunny, but relatively cool and enjoyable. The preparation for all of the various activities made for smooth sailing, as they say – congrats to all!

The Book Club meeting on 8/29 included some new members and provided varied insights and ideas about Where the Crawdads Sing by Della Owens. Many laughs punctuated the evening! The next selection is Educated by Tara Westover with discussion slated for 10/3.

Tom and I attended some of the amazing sessions at VINS special Holiday weekend program on mammals. Of course there were raptor talks and demonstrations, but there were a number of animals not indigenous to our area. Fascinating, to say the least!

Another monthly Community Luncheon is being planned for Thursday, 9/19 at 11:30 AM in the downstairs room at Tyson Church. It looks like Nancy Hagge’s outstanding meatloaf may be the main course. Anyone want to volunteer to bring side dishes or dessert? Please let me know. We usually have 25 – 30 participants, including teens from Windsor County Youth Services who kindly help to serve and clean up. Come meet your neighbors and enjoy lively conversation and a luscious lunch.

Plan to attend the annual Bethany Birches Camp Auction on 9/28. Start the morning with free treats of fresh donuts, coffee and breakfast at 9:00 AM. You can also stroll the tables and view items. Cider, apples and popcorn are available throughout the morning and the bidding begins at 10:00 AM. As the auction winds down around noon, plan to remain for lunch! This fundraiser makes possible the wonderful tier system that allows children of all economic levels to attend camp sessions at BBC, so come enjoy the day, acquire some great items and take part in helping kids!

    I know folks from Mt Holly to manchester that look forward to this one of kind theatrical extravaganza. The music of the blues festival gets better and better every year and the view of the mountains behind the stage this year made it even more special
