Wow, this weather has been amazing – I guess I removed my window screens too soon! I hope that everyone was able to get outside and enjoy it since temps will be dipping again. I spent several days in ME recently and really enjoyed the sunsets because I can’t see any from my house.

Some of you may remember Dick and Marilyn Geise who lived on Dublin Rd over 30 years ago, then moved back to Ohio. They were delightful neighbors with three children who came back to visit a number of times. It has been learned that Marilyn recently passed away. If anyone would like to send condolences to Dick, his address is: 4115 Woodsly Drive, Batavia, OH 45103; phone: 513-256-8949.

A reminder that the wonderful turkey dinner is on for Saturday, 11/12 at the Grange in Bridgewater at a cost of $15. Dinners may be ordered to go by calling 802-672-6223 by Friday and pick-up will be at 4:30. The other option is to eat-in from 5:30 – 8 PM. Either way, it will be delicious!

In addition to the Board, there were a dozen or so people at the 11/1 Planning & Zoning meeting, many of whom had questions regarding the proposed cannabis retail store at the Salt Ash Inn barn. Several of the issues brought up were not within the purview of these boards, but the concerns expressed by several people regarding parking and traffic backing out into Rte 100A could be deemed “undue adverse impact”. Of course, ballots (pink) were mailed out to voters and that will be the determining factor in whether the town as a whole is in favor of a local dispensary.

There are many important items to be discussed at the Special Town Meeting at 6 PM on Monday 11/7: the proposed building renovation and Bond issue; the adoption of the Declaration of Inclusion; the declaration of becoming a Second Amendment Sanctuary town; plus addressing questions regarding the proposed cannabis retail sale within Plymouth.
