Plymouth Area News for the week of October 23rd, 2017 by Joyce Steiner

Glenna Maye Toland of Augusta passed away on October 15th.  Our sympathy to her family and friends.
Jack Weaver, formerly of Plymouth who then moved to Florida passed away on Saturday.  He has many family members in our community.  Please pray for his family and friends.
Monday was national feral cat day.  I celebrated by feeding several feral cats as I do every day.  Jerry Booth stopped by my store and his dog chose not to get back in the truck.  He finally caught the dog near my home.  If you saw a dog that you did not recognize near the west side of the Square, that was probably the “run away”.
Worked on unloading from Spoon River on both Monday and Tuesday.  Had to get it done so I could reload for the Collectors of Illinois Pottery and Stoneware Convention which was Friday and Saturday.  I went to East Peoria on Thursday and returned on Sunday as I am a Board member and we have things to get done both before and after the convention.  Good convention!
We had seven ladies for Bible study on Thursday morning.  Carolyn Ussery was hostess.  We missed Mary Hohe who had fallen in her home.
Got a note from Ruthanne Danielson that there will be a meeting of The Church Women United of the Colchester area on Friday, November 3rd at 1:30 pm at the Hills Grove United Methodist Church which is located at 425 Tepee Road, Tennessee, IL.  All are invited to attend.
Got back to Macomb a little after noon on Sunday.  Sunday was the day the leaf color was to be the best.  There were lovely tree colors between Peoria and Plymouth but as it was raining all the way they were not in their full glory.  Perhaps tomorrow will be better.
Still have things to get home from Smithfield and Spoon River but another busy week is promised so do not know if that will happen this week or not.  This was the last show for me of the year and I am ready to get everything back in its place and have some down time. 
We have had a lovely fall and have been so fortunate to not have had a frost a yet.  I know that is coming and that I have to get my plants into the garage.  Usually have to do that during Spoon River so I am thankful.
Hope everyone has had a good week.  Please pray for your neighbors and for our country.  Scatter Kindness.
