Well, I will try again to send out the Plymouth Report – with our new computer I was not successful last week, although I was not aware that it didn’t go through! So, yes indeed, Bill Jarvi did arrive at the Cafe at Delight on 8/4 and held court as he does each month when he comes to town! Hard of hearing, but delightful as ever and wanting to be remembered to folks.

Please be aware that 100A is open on the weekends and before 8:00 AM and after 4:00 PM during the week. I was disappointed to see that the sign coming from Ludlow did not make this clear and the sign at the bottom of the Notch Hill says closed, even on weekends, which is not the case! You can easily get to the Historic Site and the Cheese Factory during the designated open times, so spread the word!

All of the wonderful events did take place at Plymouth Old Home Day despite the dire weather forecast. Bill Jenney praised the “delicious” chicken BBQ by the Fire Dept and expressed appreciation to the Coolidge Foundation (Homestead Inaugural reenactment), Coolidge State Park (state parks display), and Farm and Wilderness Camps (musical entertainment) for their participation. The few sudden downpours did not dampen spirits and by mid-afternoon, there was a nice crowd enjoying all of the exhibits and programs.

Although it was going to be an advance notice, the Tyson Ladies Aid Bazaar is now upon us – Saturday, 8/12 from 10 AM – 2 PM at Veterans Park (across from the Baptist Church) in Ludlow. Should rain threaten that day, it will be shifted to the Ludlow Community Center. Come purchase tickets for the imaginative baskets and numerous gift certificates; peruse the Book Table; stock up on yummy treats at the Bake Table, then enjoy the luscious chicken BBQ. All proceeds assist TLA in providing scholarships for local high school graduates (BRHS & Woodstock HS), supporting Tyson Library, and meeting other community needs.

Join us at Tyson Church this Sunday, 8/13 at 10:30 AM when we will be joined by Melissa Maravell, who will be sharing her wonderful music with us. Please also note that we are currently looking for someone to job-share to help play the organ for us on Sunday mornings. Although we are a tiny congregation, we love to sing 3 or 4 hymns each week, so please get in touch with Ann Rose (802-228-7151) if you would be interested in joining our music team.
