We Are Community for the week of March 11th, 2024, by Joyce Steiner

We Are Community 193

Daylight savings time-love it or hate it!  We set our clocks ahead last night so got an hour less sleep before we got up for church.  However, it was nice to have an extra hour of light tonight.  Had time to ride my bicycle, pull some weeds and take photos of the sunset- all three.

Our sympathy to the family and friends of Gladys Lambert who passed on March 6th.  She was only 59 years old.

Living Faith UMC has “singing and mingling” at the Golden Good Shepherd Home on the first Tuesday of each month.  I can’t sing but my mother was in the Golden home for six years so I have some understanding of how important it is to have visitors.  I have not been good about attending these evenings.  Our pastor is part of a group that sings for various events but  this week, she was the only singer and I was the only other one from the church.  If any of you reading this would like to visit with the residents of the home, please feel free to attend next month at 6 pm.  I know the residents appreciate the music and the visits.

I am always telling you about scams.  Had two before I even got up on Wednesday.  American Express had a problem that I needed to give information to solve but I do not carry an American Express card.  Then I had the usual “we need 3 rooms for two weeks, please give us the total cost” one which I get often.  The goal is to get me to give the cost, they over pay, I send them the amount of the overpayment and then their payment is not good so one is out both the amount of the payment and also the amount of over payment.  They really should come up with a new scam as this one is well known.  Plus, if one looks at the email address, one will find that it was sent to multiple places.

The Plymouth Village Board met on Wednesday evening.  Two members were absent.  The main topic of discussion was the need to clean up many properties in Plymouth.  One long standing eye sore did come down recently.  I believe the Village actually had to go to court to make this happen.  It would be so much easier if people just took some pride in their homes and yards.

The Memorial Clinic at Colchester has been totally remodeled and expanded.  There was an open house on Thursday evening.  The facility is wonderful.  I was impressed by the many services offered there.  One was able to tour the clinic, meet many of the doctors and service providers, enjoy refreshments and register for prizes.  I got a call saying that I had won a grill so will pick it up tomorrow.  That is nice!

Tried to pick up my grill on Friday evening but found the clinic was closed so had dinner at the Grill on Market Street in Colchester.  Had not been there before and found it was very busy.  Seemed like a nice place.

The PCCC is getting a new furnace for the chapel.  The other one was quite old and not working well.  Going to need to have a good rummage sale and donations to help pay for it!

Had a good day at the antique store on Saturday.  There was a huge crowd at Pop A Top Again.  I heard that the Beck Brothers were playing there.   Nice to have so many people in Plymouth on a Saturday afternoon.

Attended the concert at the Legacy Theater in Carthage on Saturday.  The program was “Bee Gees Gold”.  Good group and full house of people who really enjoyed the music.

Have a great week.  Enjoy the longer daylight evenings.  Scatter Kindness and Love.
