Saturday and Sunday have been delightful weather days and many people have been taking advantage and enjoying outdoor events. Swimming, biking, walking have all exploded the weekend. It is a good thing because the forecast for the next couple of days is for rain. Time for indoor projects!
I understand that there were a few sprinkles at the WUHS graduation, but the celebration was not interrupted. Congratulations to Kailyn Gomes, Calef Hepler, and Brooke Rebideau on their achievement. Tyson Ladies Aid scholarship was awarded to Calef, who will be attending CT College in the fall.
I noticed that a part-time bookkeeper position was listed in the VT Journal to provide assistance to the Plymouth Town Clerk/Treasurer. Additional information can be obtained at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 802-672-3655.
It was so exciting to have the Book Group meeting in person on 6/9. There were nine of us in attendance to discuss The Girls in the Stilt House by Kelly Mustian. It was an interesting narrative about 2 young women, one black and the other white, who lived in Mississippi’s Natchez Trace during the early 1020s. Discussion centered around the way each was trapped in a hard and cruel life – an eyeopener to the harsh conditions of that time and place. Yet their resiliency and resourcefulness helped them to overcome their hardships and improve their situations. The next meeting will take place on 7/14 to discuss Surviving the White Gaze by Rebecca Carroll.
Please note that there will be a road closure on Rte 100 north of Woodward Reservoir in order to replace bridges 114 and 115. Working on them simultaneously VTRANS says will shorten the time of closure that will take several weeks and occur between Aug and Oct, from what I can glean. Going around on Rte 100A will mean additional travel time.
