Plymouth Area News for the week of August 24th, 2015 by Joyce Steiner

Drew Slater and Shelly Conover and her children Hunter, Gaven and Billee were united in marriage at the Ralph and Carolyn Frakes farm on August 1st.  The ceremony was attended by family and friends.  The new family reside in Plymouth at 403 E. Main.  Drew works at Ralph’s Service in Plymouth and Shelly works at the Office in Basco.  Congratulations.
Monday the Adams Advisory group met in Golden.  We heard a presentation about big changes which are coming to replace Adams Cable.  You will want to attend the Adams Cooperative annual meeting which will be held in the office building at Golden on Wednesday, September 2nd beginning at 6 pm.  There is a free pork chop meal before the business meeting.  See you there. 
 Also visited with AJ Johnson while I was in Golden.
Thursday Kay and Graham Curtis came to Plymouth Rock Antiques to look at some very tiny dolls which I had purchased.  The little people now have a new home.  Thank You.  Went to visit with Dot Burdett at Heartland and found her to be fast asleep at 7:30 pm so I did not wake here.  Took back one of her plants which I had nursed back to health and brought another home for the plant “hospital”.
Friday I was feeding the kitties after dark and saw a smallish pointed light colored animal running in my yard near me.  Finally located it and found that it was a possum.  Do not think I have ever seen a possum actually run before.  They are so ugly that they are  cute.  Dylan McCurdy told me he had reached down to pet a kitty and when he looked at the animal, it was a possum.  I suspect we have befriended the same animal.
Plymouth Pride had their first official event on Saturday, August 22nd at the Community Center on the east side of the Plymouth Square.  We served corn dogs, soft serve ice cream, drinks and pop corn.  A movie was held in the park at 8:30 pm.  I felt that were had a good turn out for our first event.  We would like to thank every one who donated food and to especially thank Jamie and Brennan Lamb who helped served food all evening.  Our biggest thanks is to all the people who came out and supported the event. Our next events will be on the Second Saturday of each month.  On Saturday September 12th, Dennis Hilliard will be serving biscuits and gray at the Community Center from 6 to 10 am.  Currently we plan to do this every Second Saturday morning.
This week is a big week for Plymouth.  Plymouth Old Settler’s 130th celebration is Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  There is a full schedule in the paper or you will find them being given away at local businesses.
Saturday will be a very good day to eat in Plymouth.  Start the day with breakfast at the Plymouth American Legion.  They always have a wonderful breakfast buffet served at the Legion Hall on the west side of the Plymouth Square.  Breakfast will be served from 7-10 am.  The cost is 7 dollars for adults and 3 dollars for children.  See you there.
After breakfast be sure to stop by the Plymouth Women’s Circle stand on the east side of the Plymouth Square for home made pie, cake and ice cream.  We plan to start serving about 11 am.
Saturday evening you can eat again at the Old Settler’s fish and chicken dinner in the Plymouth Park beginning at 5 pm.
That should be a full day of eating!
Attended the Kyle Kelso Auction near Bushnell on Saturday and got some new things for Plymouth Rock Antiques.  One thing I got is a rocker with a pressed back with a face in it.  Is a cute smiling face the likes of which I have not seen before.  Be sure to stop by the store while attending Old Settler’s.
Beautiful day today, Sunday.  After church had lunch in Bowen with four others from church then went to Macomb to visit with Dot Burdett again.
Hope you have a great week.  Please attend Plymouth Old Settler’s.  Scatter Kindness.
