WE HAVE TWO WINNERS IN THE 2021 SPRING PEEPER STAMPEDE!!
Marie Blauvelt and her husband Tom were out for a late afternoon walk, standing at the boat ramp on Lake Mansfield at 5:55 PM on Tuesday the 23rd when they heard their first Spring Peepers. Very early in the Stampede,
Carla Turner of Turner Farms Maple Syrup fame predicted with great specificity that the first hearing would be on March 23rd at 5:55 PM.
I cannot recall in 20 years of Spring Peeper Stampedes two people’s prediction and hearing coinciding at precisely the same date and time. Close, yes, but never exactly the same.
So… I will soon be hosting Marie and Carla, and maybe a friend or two, at a very special Spring Peeper Luncheon in the Main Dining Room of the RED LION INN. A grand occasion and, I hope, the beginning of a great Spring and a busy Summer.
