  • Lotus & Lilly

    Posted by Posted on Friday, 11 Jul 2014 01:01 AM

    By Jean Isham, HBPA

    Lotus & Lilly, one of Hinesburg’s newest businesses, was established by Marcie Lynn Taff and her husband, Matthew (Matt) Taff. The Lotus symbolizes creation and the birth of something new, and Lilly is their daughter’s name. Marcie said she wanted to create a business that could, in the future, be passed on to her children if they so desired.

    Marcie started making body care products several years ago. Her son, Finnigan, now four years old, has problems with food allergies and sensitivity to anything containing chemicals, additives, preservatives, artificial colors or flavors. Finnigan’s allergies have resulted in not only having to watch what they put into their bodies but what they put on their bodies, everything from lotions, bug spray, lip balm to bath products. Marcie also discovered that there is not a lot out there for children.

There are several sessions of Personal-Fitness classes, during which the morning community access hours will be 7:00 a.m. - 8:00 a.m. or 7:00 a.m. - 8:30 a.m., depending on our teacher’s needs.

    The Lake Iroquois Beach

    Summer is upon us at last. The Lake Iroquois Beach is open and hopefully full of kids both large and small enjoying some summertime fun. We have beach passes for sale here at town hall. The cost is $25 for residents and if you would like a second car sticker, there is an additional cost of $14. Seniors over age 62 may purchase a pass for $12. The passes are also available for purchase at the beach. Non-resident passes are available for $50.

    Green Mountain Passport

    We also have the Green Mountain Passport available in the clerk’s office. Seniors age 62 and over may purchase a Green Mountain Passport for $2. The Passport gives seniors free access to State Parks for day use (think Mount Philo and Kingsland Bay) as well as other benefits at State of Vermont sponsored events such as Addison County Field Days. The passport is good for life and only $2. How can you go wrong?
