I have just come back from a few days in Chicago, I looked at art, shopped, hung out with my kids, ate yummy food and drank cocktails by the river – all splendid fun but it is sooooooooo good to home in Old Village. Today is Labor Day and I hope you are all enjoying the last holiday of summer.
Tomorrow however I am going to be looking forward to all things Fall – as some of you know I moved to the US 10 years ago and one of the many things I fell in love with is Fall. I am looking forward to pumpkins on porches, a glass of apple cider, wearing sweaters and the spooky season!
This past August we have seen some ongoing projects come to fruition, we have new street banners dotted around Starkweather and Mill, thank you to everyone who worked to make that happen.
We have also been very lucky to have had the efforts of the Plymouth Pollinators directed at our Old Village signs and their flower beds. Dave and Carly of the Pollinators have been coming to recent Old Village Association meetings and we were blown away by their plans. Some of our local businesses very kindly sponsored the plants for these beds. I can’t wait to see what it will look like next summer. To get an idea you can see the Pollinators garden in the Knights of Columbus park on Holbrook. If you are interested in getting involved with the Pollinators the best way to start is by joining their Facebook group – search Plymouth Pollinators! Thank you Dave and Carly for all the love bestowed on Old Village!
We have plans for making this a beautiful Fall in Old Village.
Our local businesses are planning a fun Pumpkin Path that we can all participate in and highlight the array of businesses we have here in Old Village and the OVA is planning to celebrate Halloween on October 24th with a fun family block party.
Just a reminder that the OVA meet the second Wednesday of every month at 6.30pm at the Masons Lodge at Farmer and Amelia – we love to see our neighbors and your thoughts and help, help us grow. Our September meeting is Wednesday September 8th.
Hope you have a great September – best wishes to all the Old Village children who will be returning to school this week, we are all hoping for a happy and safe year for you.
