Plymouth residents running for School Board

As you might know, Morgan Sailer and Jen Flaster are running to represent Plymouth on the Windsor Central School District board. They told me, “We are excited to be voices for Plymouth residents and to serve the interests of our community. We are both parents of first graders at Woodstock Elementary so we have a strong interest in the educational opportunities for Plymouth kids. If elected, we look forward to hearing from folks here in Plymouth and keeping you posted on what’s happening in the school district.”

Mamma Mia! Coming to Woodstock ~ Margo’s Plymouth Report

2/22/19

Thanks to Dana Dolloff for providing some interesting Ground Hog Day facts at the Community Luncheon on 2/21. Did you know that way back, a feast of ground hog dishes was part of the celebration? Guess that tradition didn’t last!

The Reading Group discussion provided many insights into family dynamics as we reviewed Go Ask Fannie by Elisabeth Hyde. We all agreed that the various twists and turns in the story brought several surprises. The next book is New York Times Bestseller, Little Fires Everywhere by Celest Ng. One of our members devoured it in one reading! Thanks to Shelburne Library, copies are available to be signed out at our Town Office if you would like to read it and be part of the dialogue.  The discussion will take place on 3/21 at 6:30 at the Community Center.

How nice that Anna Hepler & Julia Kowalski are both part of the Forensics team at WUHS that won the State Championship. Congrats! Please know that Bea Wheeler is in the Gill Home now, so consider visiting her.

Make note that some of our youth will be part of the musical Mamma Mia! in March. Tickets are on sale at showtix4u.com under Yoh Theatre at WUHSMS, $12/adults, $7/students and seniors and now you can actually choose your seats! The dates are: Friday, March 15, 7pm; Saturday, March 16, 7pm; and Sunday, March 17, 3pm

Lots of Plymouth news! ~ Margo’s Report

Reprinted with permission by The Vermont Standard.

2/15/19

It seems like February is flying by! It is definitely still winter, however. Even this morning (Friday) as I write, snow is falling. Beware of the ice under the snow!

Our annual Town Meeting will be Monday, 3/4 at the Town Building, which will provide an opportunity to review the Town budget and discuss other important town issues. The Town Report will be available by the end of next week. Copies will be mailed, you can pick up one at the Town office or it should be available at the Town website, too. Voting by Australian ballot will take place the following day, 3/5. Absentee ballots may be obtained, but make sure to follow the directions carefully, since I understand that some could not be counted last year because of errors.

Join other local folks at the Community Luncheon in the basement meeting room at Tyson church on Thursday, 2/21 at 11:30 for fun, food, and interesting facts! Also, that evening at 6:30 the Book Group will meet at the Community Center to discuss Go Ask Fannie by Elisabeth Hyde. Feel free to attend even if you have not read the book and help us to choose the next selection. 

At the Tyson Ladies Aid meeting on Thursday, plans were set for upcoming events, such as the Good Friday bake sale in the Shaws shopping center and a planned spaghetti dinner in May – details to follow.  You can see from these pictures that meetings are very solemn and serious!

It is so nice to hear about the interesting things happening with our young people. I imagine the some of you read in last week’s VT Standard that WUHS Senior, Anna Hepler was recently honored with a Presidential Scholar nomination at the VT statehouse for her academic and personal achievement. She also gave a wonderful presentation last Sunday at Bethany Mennonite Church about her recent trip to South Africa as part of Village Harmony. Along with 30 others from the US, Canada, and the UK, they visited with families, learned about the culture, performed and learned many local songs. Along with others in the congregation, she shared some of the music, which is a very special part of the culture over there.

I would love to include information about other youth in our town, so feel free to send me some!
