My goodness, the storm on Sunday evening was fierce! We were on Lake George today and storms threatened, but didn’t materialize. I do not know who left the lovely flowers that I found on the deck upon my return – beautiful glads and cheerful black-eyed Susans. Such a thoughtful and lovely gift, many thanks.
I went for an abbreviated walk with a friend around 7:15 that evening. The sky was rose-colored, but thunder began to rumble, so we turned back and headed for shelter. Even with the recent storms things are dry. I just wish this rain could be a little less intense!
I hope that the weather cooperates for the spreading of the newly delivered wood chips at the community playground that were purchased jointly by the Town and the Plymouth Schoolhouse Childcare. Rick Kaminski will be bringing his tractor on the Saturday, 8/29 but help will be needed. Please mark your calendar and venture over to lend a hand!
The discussion of the Priest’s Grotto provided a better understanding and a greater appreciation for the hardship and determination of this extended Jewish family as they hid for their lives deep within caves in the Ukraine for months on end. Most of us found it difficult to comprehend spending so much time tucked away from sunlight.
Our book for next time will be the fiction bestseller, The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett. “It’s a poignant family story that doesn’t shy away from the intersections of race, class, and gender—all while capturing the reader’s heart and mind in a way only Bennett can.”
The meeting will be Thursday, 9/17 at 6:30 pm via Zoom.
