Cool nights, marvelous sunshine and blue skies as I write on Monday – yay! The ground is still rather dry, but the rain of last week brought out the vibrant greens and many lovely flowers. The weather led more folks to Camp Plymouth State Park this past weekend. I understand from a neighbor that the food truck there has amazing offerings, so you might want to go check it out – Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays for the moment.
I attended the Plymouth Farmers Market on Sunday. Only Rebecca was on hand for this first week, with a large selection of items – skin care products, CBD items, eggs, and some veggies. Nice to find spaghetti squash so early in the season. This event will be ongoing on Sundays from 3 to 6 pm. There is no fee for vendors and the Community Center will be available in case of rain or for bathrooms..
Thanks to the Pingrees for resurfacing the pickleball court at the Community Center. It looks great and for the moment games are being played M, W, and F at 9 a.m. The Wednesday time will probably change to late afternoon when Lauren’s Plymouth Schoolhouse day program opens for the season.
Just to let know that our own Emily Dupont will be the woodland fairy in the Little Red Riding Hood ballet to be held at the Paramount on Sunday 6/12. The shows are at 1 and 6 pm. More info and tickets can be obtained at https://www.paramountvt.org/event/little-red-riding-hood
The Plymouth Strawberry Festival is rapidly approaching after a two year Covid hiatus. Come join the fun at Camp Plymouth State Park on Wednesday, 6/22 from 5-8 pm This wonderful community fundraising event is held rain or shine and the park entrance fee is graciously waived for this time period. Enjoy music provided by Adam Boyce and Sue Hunt, the BBQ by Plymouth Emergency Services, and as usual luscious strawberry shortcake by Tyson Ladies Aid.
Maybe at the Strawberry Festival we will even get to meet our new Tyson resident, Vaughn Rose, born a couple of months ago to Josh and Jamie Rose and welcomed by big brother Smith. Although we are a bit older, Happy Birthday to Sue Poirier (6/4), Matt Harootunian & me (6/14) and Gwen Groff (6/25).
By the way, just in, former Plymouth business owner Tesha Buss has extended an invitation for an afternoon BBQ on 6/12 at Good Commons from 3-6 pm “to celebrate summer, catch up with old friends, and show support for (her) VT House of Representatives campaign! Food provided by Good Commons with music by Cows Like Shrimp. This gathering is BYOB and due to parking limitations, carpooling is appreciated!”
