POISON IVY ERADICATION. Fearing for unsuspecting racers who will be lining up to start June 27, Phyllis Hughes of Village Court asked the Old Home Day Committee for funds to remove the rampant poison ivy lining both sides of Church Street at the starting point. Turned down by both OHD and the town, Hughes (pictured above in the “haz-mat” suit she bought for the task) took on the project herself, using her own funds for supplies and for help from her daughter Helene and a friend.
