This relentless steamy weather has apparently been driving people to visit camp Plymouth State Park in droves. I understand that the weekend before 1400 people were counted and this past weekend over 1000. Sprinkles of rain here and there have not caused people to relinquish activities at the park, but also they have not provided relief for the dry conditions that are turning grass brown and causing plants to wither.
Route 100 has now been paved all the way to 103, although the lines have not been done yet. The workmen seemed to be diligent and delay times were usually not too long. It now seems to be smooth sailing!
I understand that the crowd at the historic site for Old Home Day was not as large as some of years, but there were many competing events this past weekend. Plymouth Fire Dept enjoyed a good turn out for the BBQ and I am told that being there and visiting with folks was a highlight for many.
The reading group will be meeting at 6:30 PM via Zoom on 8/10 to discuss The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles. It should be an interesting discussion. This time we will be choosing books for the next three months, too.
I have heard that there are still folks interested in and working on preserving the dam between Amherst and Echo Lakes. I look forward to receiving more information, so that the latest can be included in the Plymouth Press.
Don’t forget that the Tyson Ladies Aid 8/13 Bazaar will be held at Fletcher Farm this year, including their wonderful and varied basket raffle, book sale, fabulous bake sale, and of course delicious barbecue. There will be other vendors there also, so plan on attending!
