Wasn’t that 60+ degree day a wonderfully hopeful sign that winter may be abating! At least the inch of snow we had Saturday night whitened things up a bit. However, I admit that I am ready for spring, although it appears that will not be happening in the immediate future.
My grandson, Owen, had his 10th Birthday party on Friday at the Viking Nordic Center in Londonderry. I had never been there before, but they have lighted cross-country ski & snowshoe trails that are delightful. A fire pit allows social distancing in a beautiful outdoor setting.
There are several other March birthdays. Congratulations to Taylor Lynds (17th), Bob Lynds (21st), Betty Putnam (22nd) and Maxwell Putnam (31st).
You can still avail yourself of the $35 prix fixe menu at the Echo Lake Inn. This week it is available Tuesday and Thursday, but next week Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. As with most places, the staff will soon be taking a short break after the winter season.
I understand from Sandie Small that new ballots will be issued for the town voting that will take place on 4/13. Although the Town Meeting will be held 4/12, no voting will take place at that time. Due to Covid precautions, there will be limited in-person space, but you may attend via Zoom. Call the Town Office (802-672-3655) for additional information.
Marched into March with hope in my heart
Only flurries on the horizon by the weather report
The wind, it’s a blowing, cold and fierce
Right through my jacket, my heart to pierce
In like a lion, out like a lamb
Waiting for spring – I am, I am
