Well, the nearly bare ground is covered in white again – lovely light and fluffy snow that was easy to push off the deck. To my way of thinking, that is the best kind! A few of us enjoyed the new powder over at Camp Plymouth State Park today. Our group used snowshoes, several others had cross-country skis and a few just boots. The dogs were certainly enjoying romping in it, but a startled grouse did not appreciate their presence.
I learned from Jay that the Select Board meeting last Monday was not available because Okemo Valley TV could not be there. This will be a busy week with the information-only Town Meeting at 7 PM on Monday, 2/28. It will be in person, but also available on Zoom at: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88347138689?pwd=dnRjQUlYT0lXR0k3SlYrVW9aNHNlUT09Meeting ID: 883 4713 8689.

Voting by Australia ballot will take place at the Town Building on Tuesday, 3/1 from 10 AM to 7 PM and will include all of the Articles, plus the School Budget. In completing my absentee ballot I noticed that Lister candidate Naomi Moyer’s name was spelled Meyer, but most of us know her well! There was nobody on the ballot for School Director, so I am attaching a letter of recommendation by Pete Fellows for a write-in person, who is eager to serve in that capacity. Don’t forget to vote!
Per Pete: A fellow Hale Hollow-er (not holler-er) Elliot Rubin is running to fill Josh Linton’s vacant seat. See below for some background. You will need to write him in though. We have known him and his wife for many years now and just wanted to let you all know what an asset they are to our little community. Elliot is a retired pediatrician and is excited to serve his community in a new way. He is thoughtful and is also willing to speak up and advocate for children.
Hello, my name is Dr. Elliot Rubin, and I would like for you to consider me as a write-in
candidate for the Windsor Central Supervisory Union School Board, representing Plymouth. My wife and I moved to Plymouth full time in 2020 to start our retirement. I have, for the last 36 years, been in practice as a primary care community Pediatrician in central NJ. I am thrilled to be back in Vermont having graduated from UVM Medical School in 1981. I feel that my experience as a primary care Pediatrician, caring for children from birth to young adulthood and their families, would positively inform my decision making as a school board member. I am excited for the opportunity to make this transformation from clinical Pediatrics to serving our local community in another way, as a Plymouth WCSU School Board representative.
Please consider writing-in my name in the Australian Ballot on Tuesday, March 1st, 2022 at Plymouth Town Hall where in person voting is from 10am-7pm. Please also consider passing my name and this notice along to your Plymouth friends and neighbors.
Elliot Rubin, MD, FAAP
