Annual Town Meeting Rescheduled and hope for Spring ~ Margo’s Plymouth Report

Reprinted with permission from The Vermont Standard


I am writing on Sunday afternoon and what a joy to see this bright sunshine and brilliant blue sky.  I will admit that it is a bit nippy with the wind, but I am looking forward to getting out there shortly.  My wind chimes are playing wonderful music.

I toss peelings across the road and did so wearing my snowshoes yesterday.  The conditions surprised me, so I meandered through the woods and out into Jarvi field.  Amazingly, the crust was not icy, with just enough snow cover to allow for a slight indentation.  From the looks of it, several animals had proceeded me there.  I imagine they are looking forward to spring as much as I am!

Well, I know that the Annual Meeting and voting situation has been a bit confusing.  Hopefully by now everyone has received a copy of the Annual Report.  I believe the delay in obtaining them from the printer is the cause of rescheduling the meeting, allowing for a 30 day mandated warning period.  The Town Meeting will now be 4/12 and the voting will take place on 4/13.  I understand that some folks missed the voting on the school budget since that took place 3/2.  It did pass in Plymouth by a vote of 29 to 11.

Congratulations to Sage Allen for achieving Dean’s list honors at the University of Maine. I would love to hear more news about our students of all ages because I think they are probably doing some incredible things.  Feel free to let me know!

I thought I would share these lovely tulips that a college friend of Tom brought me the other day – such a nice gesture and a symbol of hope for the coming of spring. I learned that tulips are named after the Persian word for turban and they originated in Central Asia.  Tom and I were fortunate to have visited friends in Amsterdam during tulip season one year, so this gift was even more special and much appreciated.
