Writing this on Sunday, it looks like a winter wonderland! Although I was away this weekend, I understand that all of the activities up at the Notch on Saturday were well attended. Tyson Ladies Aid served up a wonderful lunch and other delicious goodies. They appreciated the attentive help of Andy Crossman in getting the Wilder House all ready for them. Many patrons were return customers and the group is already talking about doing it again next year!
The Coolidge Holiday Open House is a well-known and highly anticipated event for which the weather cooperated nicely. I was late to the cookie exchange at the Historical Society on Sunday, but it looked like a nice array of good treats. It was so nice to meet Liam Harootunian! I did make it back for the Memory Tree lighting, as noted in the picture. Names were read for those submitted in loving memory, plus donations were received in honor of folks, too.
“They” are calling for a warming trend, but I hope it won’t impact attendance at Teresa Ennis’ cupcake decorating workshop on Tues, 12/10 at 4 PM at the Community Center. I know that several of us are counting on her expertise! If you have not signed up & would like to attend, please make sure to contact me ASAP, so she can prepare.
This week is also the Reading Club meeting on Thursday, 12/12 at 6:30 to discuss Marley by local author Jon Clinch. This book is definitely a different kind of Christmas story!
Just to let you know, that the free Winter Family Fun Day will take place at Bethany Birches Camp on Saturday, 12/14 from 10 AM- 4 PM. Plan to attend and see what will be happening at BBC this winter. Respond via Facebook Event, call (802-672-5220) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Dress warmly and come last minute, if necessary.
Please note that there will not be a Community Luncheon in December since the Holiday season is so busy. Please let me know if you would like to help plan the January one!
