By Lois Lumbra — What a beautiful sunny Sunday. It has been a perfect week of fantastic weather, NO complaints.
Today, I prepared a birthday dinner for Penny, we had a nice visit; her friends at school took her out for a birthday dinner at the Crossing Friday night, and had a blast. She will turn 50 Monday, 10/25. She wanted to go out this afternoon for a ride on her side/side while the weather remained nice to be out and the foliage is getting so pretty.
9/16..Leah Brown daughter of David and Tracey Brown was united in marriage to Wyatt Zupan. The marriage took place in Daniel, Wyoming. Dad proudly walked his beautiful daughter down the aisle, the couple was married at the horse ranch where they both work. There were many close friends from Montgomery that flew out to attend this special occasion. It was such a beautiful wedding and everyone had a wonderful-wonderful time. Congratulations Leah and Wyatt!!!
Lorraine St.Onge enjoyed visiting with her long time friends this past week, Jackie Henry from Essex Jct., and Louise Brassard from Sarasota, Florida. The ladies took a ride up Route 242, visited Jay Peak and enjoyed looking a the Fall foliage, went to Lowell and had a delicious lunch at the Cajun, before heading back home.
9/21..Sisters Maggie Elkins, Susie Ewins and Grace Jones enjoyed a day of golf at the West Bolton Country Club where Grace is a member. This has been a yearly tradition for sometime now for these ladies. Truly a very special day. Both the Fall colors and weather were beautiful.
9/22..Sandy Bowman headed to Wilkinson, Massachusetts to attend her High School Reunion.
9/22..Connie McFarland, Nancy Bessett, Betty Moquin, Rachel Wright, Fredda Ploof, Kelly Sullivan and Ann Lavery, all members of the Green Mountain Ruby Reds went to Waterbury Center to tour the Cider Mill and also ate lunch there, then off to Waterbury to check out the glass blowing and to Ben and Jerry’s and had ice cream and some did the tour, and stopped at the Chocolate store on their way home. It was a nice outing and most enjoyable.
9/23..Mike and Linda Carpenter invited family, friends and neighbors to their annual BBQ held at their home/farm here in the Village. What a gorgeous view they have from their place, and the peacefulness of the horses grazing, and the hens all out in the field picking whatever they want and running about. When it gets dark the chickens all came in to roost for the night. Mike and Linda were busy at the grills doing the meats, the people that came brought pot-luck dishes to share. The Children enjoyed swimming, riding their 4-wheelers, bikes and played games. We came home about the time the crescent moon started to shine. It was such a lovely evening and many enjoyed sitting around the bonfire. Thanks so much Mike and Linda.!!!
