Dorothy and Roger Pingree on the 64th anniversary of their wedding day!

Dorothy and Roger Pingree on the 64th anniversary of their wedding day!


A dreary Sunday as I write this column, yet in some ways it seems relaxing to have a cup of tea and curl up to peruse the piles of paper that need my attention.  Today seems a perfect day to do just that!

I was visiting in Ludlow last Tuesday when I heard that noise – tiny hail pellets hitting the windows.  It was actually a bit slippery underfoot as I made my way to my car, so I was glad I was wearing my boots.  Shortly it turned to a heavy, wet snow making the seasonally challenged woman behind me in the Shaws’ checkout line both unsafe and uncomfortable in her flip flops!

Several folks gathered at Mountain View to help Dorothy and Roger Pingree celebrate their 64th wedding anniversary.  Here is a picture of them taken by their daughter, Justina!  On the other end of the spectrum, I see that Grace Vosburgh is busy with Lacrosse this season.

Please know that Green Up will be going forward on Saturday, 5/7. You can stop at the fire hall to pick up bags and an assigned route starting at 8:00 AM.  Safely vests and beverages will be on hand, but make sure to get back there for the noontime potluck lunch! Also, please note that Plymouth will have a hazardous waste day on Saturday 5/14 from 9:00 – 11:00 AM.

Hope you are thinking in terms of the 2-Day Memorial Day Weekend Antiques and Treasures Sale to be held at the Plymouth Schoolhouse Activity Center on May 28 and 29 from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM when you are doing your spring cleaning.  For a small fee and a 3 hour work shift, you can weed out the things you no longer need and perhaps even earn a little extra cash.  Plus, you will be able to connect with folks that you might not know or haven’t seen lately.

So, mark each item with a secure tag, noting your 3 initials and the price, then deliver them to the Activity Center on the following days.  Saturday, 5/21, 9 am – noon; Sunday, 5/22, 1 – 4 pm; Tuesday, 5/24, 5 – 8 pm or Thursday, 5/26, 9 am – noon.  Don’t forget to sign up for a work shift, too.  Please note that anything unclaimed will be offered to the  Bridgewater Sustainable Earth Foundation the week of 6/6. Unwanted items will then go to the Plymouth Transfer Station on 6/11.  Contact Terry Bascom, Activity Coordinator with questions at 672-5390 or

At Tyson Church these days we are trying to enhance our Sunday 10:30 AM Worship with more music.  If you are interested in sharing your talent with us, please give me a call!
