Even with temperature all over the place and heavy rain, the fall colors are still pretty.  I didn’t dare bike along Rte 100 over the holiday weekend, but I was out last Thursday and enjoyed a brisk ride!  Please remember that folks are wandering our roads sightseeing – sometimes looking at the leaves and not concentrating on their driving, so be careful…..

Well, I missed Bill Jarvi’s 91st birthday which was 10/11.  Also, my previous notation of a new family member, Greer Ryan McQuillen was incorrect.  She is his great-granddaughter!

There are a couple more openings with the dental hygienist who will be at Tyson Church in the morning before the Reach Out Luncheon on 10/15.  This is a wonderful opportunity to have your teeth examined and evaluated for free.  See the notice below!

It was a pleasure this Sunday to welcome two new members into our Tyson Church congregation.  Both Cindy Summer & Rose Frye have been attending for some time and are now officially members of our church family.  This coming week, 10/18 is our Children’s Sunday when we have a special story and activity planned.  All are welcome!

Plan to attend the 2:00 PM meeting on Saturday, 10/24 at the Municipal Building to learn more about the new recycling regulations.   Life is full of changes, but hopefully this new way will be better for the environment and eventually easier for us!
