I was glad to see that the snow didn’t really stick last week. I know that some folks have flowers blooming, but my daffodils are just now pushing through. Sure signs of spring seem to be appearing. I heard geese going over the other day and have seen robins, as well. I understand there was a bear on the prowl in the Union and that may be what set my driveway alarm off the last couple of nights. Sunday on Rte 100 heading toward Ludlow, the quintessential sign of spring, the aroma of skunk, filled my nostrils!
School vacations are happening this week and next, so be on the lookout for young people. Don’t forget that the Plymouth Town Meeting (4/12) and voting (4/13) will be next week. Advance warning about The annual Tag Sale at Plymouth Community Center scheduled for Sunday, 10/10/21. You will have all summer to collect items for it!
I hope that everyone had a wonderful Holiday weekend. Several people have shared their joy at spending time with family again. Spring, Easter, New Life – a hopeful time. I know that we still need to be prudent regarding Covid. The numbers have spiked here in VT, as is the case in many places. We have been constrained and restrained for so long, yet caution is still needed. Be safe and well.
