Heading toward the middle of Sept and some trees seem to be jumping the gun! Oh well, we know that autumn is upon us with these chilly nights. Somehow adding a blanket seems to make sleeping better.
An update on that marauding bear. No, I haven’t seen it again, although several have been sighted in the neighborhood. I just wanted to commend the kind person who used plywood to seal the shed up again.
Camp Plymouth State Park is closed for the season, but their message indicates it may still be utilized. Parking should be limited to the designated all year parking lot, however. The Vista trail should be beautiful when the foliage pops!
I need to step up my reading because the Book Group will be meeting this Thursday at 6:30 pm via Zoom to discuss The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett. It seems like a very opportune time to read this selection in light of racial tensions.
We are so fortunate that VT has low COVID numbers, but there have been a number of recent deaths that are not related to the pandemic. In addition to Tom passing on 7/27, Hazel Tatro passed around that same time. Len Stillings, formerly of Plymouth died recently in FL and his service will take place at the Notch cemetery on 10/10..
Last Wednesday, Mike Gianola, son of Echo Lake Inn owner, Tom Gianola passed away as well. There is an open invitation to attend any of these events on Saturday, 9/26. The Catholic Mass at St Raphael in Poultney at 10 AM. Internment at 11 AM at the St Raphael Cemetery. Celebration of Life at 2:30 PM at Tyson Community Church, and light hors d’oeuvres will be served at the Echo Lake Inn at 3:30.
Condolences to all of these families.
