Plymouth Area News for the week of November 5th, 2018 by Joyce Steiner


I noted in the paper that Marjorie Knowles had passed away on October 27th.  Our sympathy to her family and friends.  She had several siblings and I knew one of them, Charlie Smith.

Talk about money laundering.  I found $111 in the washer on Monday.  Fortunately one of my B&B guests was doing a load of laundry so I knew where it came from.  Knocked on their door and gave it back to them.  She did not seem surprised so think her husband must leave money in his pocket frequently.

The Plymouth Women’s Circle will be holding their Annual Bazaar on Saturday,  November 17th starting at 9 am.  It will be held at the Plymouth Circle Community Center just west of the Plymouth Square.  There will be soup by the quart, home made candy by the pound, baked goods and sandwiches.  We have some really good cooks in our group, so please come out and support the Plymouth Women’s Circle.  One of our main projects is keeping up the former Methodist Church for use by everyone in the community.

Got a note that Wesley Village will have the official lighting of their “Lights of Love” on Thursday, November 15th beginning at 5:30 pm.  There will also be a center piece and wreath auction and a soup and sandwich supper.  Sounds like fun.  I always light one tree in honor of my husband, Ben Gentry.

Wednesday was Halloween-I’m sure you noticed.  I stayed home and sat on my front porch to pass out a bowl of candy.  It is always fun to see the costumes.  It is also interesting to interact with the children.  I had the porch light on so they would approach the front door but I was sitting off to the side so I would say “ hi” and that I was “over here”.  Even with out a costume, I scared a few children.

Thursday was the Lowderman auction in Macomb.  Filled the van for the store.  After the auction, I went to eat while in Macomb.  A young man paid for my supper at the restaurant even though I did not know him.  I am sure he will not be reading this blog but I would like him to know that I appreciated his kind gesture.

On Friday, I returned to a home where I had purchased some items for the store and picked up an 1840’s chest of drawers.  It is Empire style which is not too popular but if one thinks just how old it is and if you have an early home, it would be a great addition to it.  I have a couple of Empire chests in my home.

Halloween is the prelude to All Saint’s Day.  Our Church celebrated All Saints Day today.  Each person attending had the opportunity to light a candle in memory of persons who has already passed over.  We also had a baptism and communion.  It was a lovely service.  Thank you Pastor Sheri Renner.

Today was also the Annual Thanksgiving Dinner in Golden.  It is a long standing tradition and several people from Living Faith attended the dinner.  They serve turkey, dressing, potatoes, gravy, green beans, corn, salad and dessert.  The food is always great.

Two hunters left on Tuesday, two more arrived on Thursday and two more are on their way right now.  The first couple was from Louisiana, the second two are from Miami and the ones on their way are from Michigan.  Always interesting to meet people from different areas although all of these hunters have stayed here before.

So sorry to see all the lovely leaves on the ground and now the bare trees.  Can spring be far behind-yes!

Have a great week.  Be kind to those around you.
