Happy 4th! Local student and community member news, Community Luncheon planning ~ Margo’s Plymouth report

Reprinted with permission from The Vermont Standard


Writing this on the 4th of July – hope that you celebrated!  The weather has not been great for this Holiday weekend, but there was a lovely sunset this evening.  Lots of fireworks around Echo Lake and elsewhere tonight.  Unfortunately the ones at the Coolidge Homestead were cancelled on Saturday evening.  The Annual dinner was still held there and riding by, the many white tents were quite impressive.

I understand that a number of our local students have been excelling in school: 7th grade – Schuyler Hagge (Summa Cum Laude); 8th Grade – Colton Kowalski (Magna Cum Laude); 10th grade – Norah Harper (Summa Cum Laude); 11th grade – Meredith Reiger (Magna Cum Laude) and 12th grade – Calef Hepler (Magna Cum Laude).  Congratulations to one and all.  Calef also received the Tyson Ladies Scholarship.

There are also several birthdays this month.  I have already missed Susie Bergey (7/2), but coming up are Cindy Summer (7/5), Betty Stear (7/21), and Carolyn Scott (7/31).  Best wishes!  Condolences to the family of Mary Kay Bixby of Kingdom Rd, who passed away at their Smyrna Beach home on 6/19.

Several people have asked about the monthly Community Luncheons.  Katherine Pingree and I have recently been discussing having a potluck one at the Plymouth Community Center on Friday, 8/20.  Please let me know your thoughts, if you would like to attend and could possibly help with planning.  It has been a long time since we have all been together, but with vaccinations, it seems like it might be safe to meet again!

I received some exciting news when I recently had lunch with Kristen and Lauren Jarvi and Barbara Chick.  Lauren’s daughter, Hillary runs mountains and just placed first for women in the Marathon at Mont Blanc and 20th overall with more than 500 runners participating.  It took her 11 hours and 54 minutes to accomplish this feat!  As you can see, the view is spectacular, too.
