2015 Annual Report

Statement of Intention:  “The Hyde Park Community Circle is called for Hyde Park residents and friends who are interested in building community together.  The Circle is called so that people can think and act creatively together, providing on-going support in a cooperative spirit.”

During 2015, the Hyde Park Community Circle sponsored four events in the interest of building community.  On March 21, we hosted “Think Spring – Puppets and Plants” with the No Strings Marionette Co. performing “Nick of Time” an exciting space adventure and activities for children including potting seedlings and craft-making activities held in the Hyde Park Elementary Gymnasium.  175 people were in attendance.  On July 20, the Jedediah Hyde Ice Cream Social was held in front of the Governor’s House. The Lamoille County Players’ cast of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s CATS performed songs from the show while volunteers served cookies and ice cream to around 300 people. The third event was Hyde Park Home Day, which was held on Main Street in Hyde Park on Saturday, September 19th.  The activities started off with a grand parade down Main Street.  During the day, we were entertained by Patti Casey and Tom MacKenzie of Shady Rill and our own Abby Sherman.  The final event of the year was the Hyde Park Lighting Ceremony, which was held on December 4th at St. Teresa’s Parish Hall with Frosty the Snowman entertaining families along with craft making at the Lanpher Memorial Library.  223 lights were purchased in honor, celebration or memory of loved ones.  A beautiful wreath made by Paine’s Christmas Trees adorned with lights hung on the Village Garage during the holiday season.  A second wreath was placed on the Grange Hall in North Hyde Park.

These events are always held on the same day of the week each year.  Think Spring is held the third Saturday in March; Jedediah Hyde Ice Cream Social is held the third Monday evening in July; Hyde Park Home Day is held the third Saturday in September; and the Hyde Park Lighting Ceremony is held the first Friday of December.  These events have proven quite successful in bringing people together and building community.  The Circle always has an open invitation for Hyde Park residents to participate in these events and to help with the planning.  For any questions or to join the Circle, people can contact Teresa Farquharson at 888-1289.
