Those hot, sticky days faded away the last several days and it was 49 degrees Saturday morning at my house. We could still use a bit more rain, but the blistering heat seems to have subsided for the moment – a welcome relief.
It turned out to be a perfect day on Saturday for the Tyson Ladies Aid Bazaar that was held at Fletcher Farm and was quite successful this year. Thanks to the many people who worked so hard and to our faithful customers!

If you are interested in the agenda for the 8/15 Select Board meeting, please note that is posted on the Town website. I understand that they are still of need of someone to record minutes at these meetings.
I have a pleasant update on my recent car wash adventure. In the mail this week I received a check to cover 2 car washes, along with a very nice apology letter. It was much appreciated and great PR.
