Plymouth Area News for the week of November 2nd, 2015 by Joyce Steiner

First a couple of upcoming events-remember that Plymouth Pride will be sponsoring their Second Saturday breakfast at the Community Center on the east side of the Square on Saturday, November 14th from 7-10 am.  Not sure what we will be serving as yet but we plan to add to the menu.  Please come join us for breakfast and then stay to help paint and fix up the center.
On Saturday, November 21st, the Plymouth Women’s Circle will have their annual Bazaar at the PCCC from 9-11 am.  There will be soup by the quart, sandwiches to go, home made candy, baked goods, crafts and more.  All the money raised goes to keep the PCCC repaired and open.
Mrs. Chester Bailey, Rolene, passed away this week.  They lived on a farm east of Plymouth.  She had many interests including raising horses.  She was Dot Burdett’s room mate for a while at Heartland.  Our sympathy to the family
The store has been pretty calm lately but that changed on Wednesday of this week.  Had Rev. Ron Graham, Jerry Booth, Jane Rigsbee and her sister and brother in law all at the store at the same time.  Also had hunters arrive from Alabama on Wednesday.  They stayed through Sunday morning.  Though I seldom comment on guests, their mothers never taught them to turn off a light or a fan.  Sorry that they did not get a deer  as it had to be a lot of traveling and expense to make the trip.
Thursday was our last Bible study of the session lead by Pat Phelps.  Dixie Anderson was hostess-she makes great cookies!  We have a lot of good cooks in Plymouth.  Sam Meek and Chris Sanson invited me over for supper.  Thanks!  Love to eat and enjoy spending time with friends.  One problem with being a widow at 58 is that one has a lot of time to be “lonely” which I know can happen even if one is married.  When I was young, my parents and others in the community went to each other’s homes for card games, 4H, to watch TV and just to visit.  We need to bring back actually talking and visiting with others today instead of just staying home and watching TV alone.
Saturday I will be set up at a show in Macomb at the VFW which is located just west of K  Mart.  It is “Ladies Day Out” and runs form 9 am to 4 pm.  There will be antiques and crafts for sale and I imagine there will be candles and food too.  This is only the second year for this small show but we had a full house of vendors and a good turn out last year.  Please come and shop the show.
As you know Plymouth Pride is working on the Community Center on the east side of the Plymouth Square.  My husband, Ben Gentry, and I raised money to have the roof repaired two times and now it needs repair again.  New roofs are very expensive so we need your help to raise money for that again.  If you have been in the Center lately you will have noticed that the back wall is missing.  Dylan McCurdy and crew have demolished the wall to put in two bath rooms instead of one.  That is necessary to have any businesses in the building.  Hopefully the wall and the new bathrooms will be finished soon.
Kevin and Carolyn Bullard spearheaded a Halloween open house at the Community Center on Saturday evening.  There were over 140 young people who came out for treats which were given by many people.  The library was  represented at the event.  Hopefully next year we can get representatives from the Village Board, the fire department and the police department to join us as well as anyone else who is interested.  We had one “hay rack” load of kids which I thought was a great idea.  Thanks to Kevin and Carolyn for coming up with the idea to help keep the children safer by coming to a central location for treats.
Today was lovely.  Hope you were able to enjoy it.  Have a great week.  Scatter Kindness.
KC just won the world series!
