I feel remiss that I have not expressed gratitude for the response to our emergency at Echo Lake on 7/27. The park’s exceptionally kind personnel cleared the beach, but before some of the folks left, they offered help, water, and heartfelt concern. I can’t begin to thank all of the emergency professionals who responded. Trucks and folks from both Plymouth and Ludlow Fire Depts were there. I am deeply thankful for the care taken by Stephanie Grover and Dan Stoughton of Ludlow Ambulance Service in regard to locating Tom. State Trooper Steven Schutt was very kind and accommodating. This is truly a caring community that responds with kindness and compassion.
So nice that fun things are happening at the Community Center (former Plymouth Elementary School). Upgrades to the playground will not only make it more attractive, but safer for the youngsters.
More improvements in the works include a pickle ball court the beginnings of which can be seen in the picture. It will be made with special lines added to the basketball court. More to come soon! Several volunteers have been working to beautify the gardens and to make this space welcoming. Thanks to one and all!
In checking with Tom at the Echo Lake Inn, dinner is being served Wed – Sun, from 5:30 until 9:00 PM. Please take note that both indoor and outdoor seating is available. I believe that the Inn at Waters Edge is still offering dinners on Tuesdays. Check their website for details.
