PLYMOUTH — Plymouth's Semiquincentennial Birthday continues to benefit the Greater Plymouth area today, long after the summer celebration and parade has passed by and become part of our recent history.
The sale of Plymouth 250th merchandise by the Plymouth Rotary, lead sponsor of this special event, helped the organization make substantial awards to two Plymouth area non-profits. Both the Plymouth Bridge House Shelter and the Plymouth Historical Society each received a check for $5,000 from the Plymouth Rotary to assist with their efforts in the community.
The Plymouth Bridge House is the only homeless shelter in Grafton County. Its mission is to help participants attain healthy, affordable and independent housing. More recently, its Director, Cathy Bentwood, has been dedicating her energies toward raising funds for Soldier On in order to build supportive, permanent housing for homeless veterans in the area. Statistics show that one out of three homeless people are veterans, and that on any given night, there are 100,000 homeless veterans on our streets.
The Plymouth Historical Society was organized in 1973, and its goal is to preserve and make available historical records and other memorabilia relevant to Plymouth and its environs. The Plymouth Historical Society oversees the Plymouth Historical Museum located in the former Plymouth Public Library Building on Court Street. The building is listed on the National Register and houses photographs, personal memorabilia, various collections, vintage clothing and other items of historical interest.
Plymouth Historical Society President, Lisa Lundari, was enthusiastically involved in the 250th celebration as part of the town's Steering Committee and she personally created most of the artwork and the graphic designs for the banners, parade program and 250th merchandise.
The Plymouth Rotary Club is a group of 38 local individuals who collectively work to support the community by putting "Service Above Self." Plymouth 250th merchandise is still available for purchase and may be obtained by contacting President-Elect Sharon Thorne at her Main Street Allstate business, President Kathy Kearns at her office at the Circle Program, or Steve Rand at Rand's Hardware Store.
