Margo Marrone’s Plymouth Report

Republished with permission from The Vermont Standard


What a great turnout for the Reach Out Luncheon last Thursday. Norm Aubin & Rudy Gross were cooks extradinaire at the grill, which Laurence very kindly loaned us from the Echo Lake Inn. Since we did not have a speaker, I read a short story about a lost cockatiel named Rocky, then we talked about angels in our lives. During my illness, there have been many & some of them were sitting right there!

A reminder about the festivities at the Notch on Saturday, 8/4. Come enjoy craft demonstrations, wagon rides, sheep shearing, & live music. Bring your appetite for the Emergency Services chicken BBQ!

Condolences go out to Steve & Cindy on the sudden passing of their beloved horse, Rocky. Hopefully a suitable companion for Moses will be found soon. Thanks to Shawn Bemis for helping with the burial.

Another upcoming event is the Tyson Ladies Aid Bazaar, taking place on Sat 8/10 at Veterans Memorial Park in Ludlow from 10:00 AM- 2:00 PM. Folks may remember that it used to be held at Tyson Church on the 3rd Thursday of August, but times have changed & there is more exposure in Ludlow & better attendance on the weekend.

There is still an amazing food table with lots of luscious baked goods. Gift certificates & various theme baskets are offered in the raffle – something for everyone & you get to place your tickets individually for whatever suits your fancy. A yummy chicken BBQ with tables under the trees provides a great lunch. There will be a book sale, too!

Tyson Ladies Aid is a group of ambitious & lively ladies (the husbands often lend a hand) who fund-raise to support the Tyson Library, help with the monthly Reach Out Luncheon (along with Tyson Church), & contribute funds for many community needs in the surrounding area. Scholarships this year went to graduating seniors Marina Turco at BRHS & Kiersten Weiss at WUHS

Some of you may have experienced delays as a portion of the Kingdom (Tyson/Reading) Rd was being paved. A minor inconvenience & what an improvement! That reminds me, a warm welcome to Tyson for Morgan, JP, & Harper.

Lastly, please contact Terry Bascom at 802-672-5390 or at with ideas for the use of the former Plymouth Schoolhouse. Terry has been hired by the town to help facilitate the utilization of this space. Possible ideas are a retail or business space, but it is hoped that other community events/programs can be provided there as well, such as classes, demonstrations, or service & informational programs.
