It is quite amazing to me that we are already a week into November. Is it my imagination or does time begin to move faster toward the end of the year? Our grandsons were giggling the other day over the many “naked” trees! It always amazes me, however, to see some trees, usually protected from the wind, that hold on to their leaves well after the others become bare.
If you have traveled through town over the past couple of days, you may have noticed the road work signs on Rte 100 and the Notch hill. Work is slated to begin this week from what I understand. Sorry that I don’t have more specifics, but I imagine you should be prepared for delays if you go that way.
There was a lively discussion about Unprepared when the Book Club met this past week. Although some negative reactions, most felt that it was intriguing, making it difficult to put down. Next month’s selection is The Shepherd’s Life by James Rebanks for discussion on 12/1.
If you just can’t wait for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, consider attending the Reach Out luncheon on 11/17 sponsored jointly by Tyson Ladies Aid and Tyson Church at 11:30 AM downstairs in the Community Room of the church. All are welcome to join the celebration!
We attended the lovely 60th birthday gathering for Willow Bascom on Sunday with her family and many other Plymouth residents. Good food and good company! Also, birthday congratulations go out to Mary Jane Crockett (11/8).
Remember to mark your calendar for the Coolidge Holiday program on 12/10 that will include a concession by the Tyson Ladies Aid – soups, chili and a number of different pies!
