Wow, these temps have been jumping all over the place! It was nice to have a bit of rain Sunday afternoon although it probably wasn’t enough. I am hoping that these cooler temps will help to diminish the black flies and mosquitos. It is so annoying the way they love to get into my hair and around my face, seeming to take big chunks of flesh. I am glad I have my hand-held bug zapper racket, so I can still go for a walk without being completely devoured.
Tyson Library will open on 5/29, with the usual schedule of Tuesday-Saturday, from 10 AM – noon. It is planned to be open every other Monday evening from 6-7 PM, too. Masks are needed inside the building. Book donations are being accepted, but please only bring those that are in good condition, to be used in the library or sold at the book sale.
There are passes available for State Parks and the State Historic sites – one each for free admission for up to 8 people in one vehicle. Please note the Camp Plymouth State Park opens Thursday, 5/28 and the Historic Site opens on 5/29.
Canasta anyone? Join the group on Mondays at 1 PM at the Community Center. Call Katherine Pingree at 802-353-7969 for more details.
Check out the Okemo Valley TV website for the documentary “Keep Cool with Coolidge”, a presentation about the 1924 campaign. Also the 6th graders at LES reciting Coolidge’s “Vt is the State I Love” speech is there, as well.
