A bit late this week and I missed the early deadline for the VT Standard, but I did want to share some news with all of you. As you know, we are receiving much needed rain, although the past 2 days have been rather gloomy. Good for attending to indoor projects!
There was much happening in town this past weekend. The Shakespeare Alive performance was outstanding as usual and was viewed with great enthusiasm. The church was full and reverberated with laughter as the Bard’s words tumbled out in various new circumstances. Well done!
I was able to attend the Saturday part of the Folk and Blues Festival. Those in attendance filled the lawn and included all ages and many dogs, who seemed to get along famously. I understand that a similar crowd enjoyed the music on Sunday, as well.
On a more somber note, Sandie Small passed away unexpectedly on 8/27. She was an important part of our community serving as Town Clerk from 2015 until earlier this year. Hailing from NJ, she and her husband purchased their parcel of land at Hawk in1987. She was well-known within our community and I will always remember Sandie’s warm smile. No services are planned at this time.
In speaking with Tiffany at Camp Plymouth State Park, I have learned that although it will remain open until 9/25, you might be disappointed to hear that the food truck is gone for the season. You can still enjoy the park, however, and possibly even more now that the geese have departed. Apparently there was a three week period when 30 geese, including babies decided to take up residence on the lake. The park opens at 10 AM each day and boats may be rented from 11 until 4. Also, there is some mid-week availability at the cottages, the week of 9/12 and 9/19 if anyone is interested.
