Those Guys, a Lyme service organization, is available to assist local residents who need a hand with things like transportation to medical appointments, minor household repairs, yard work, etc. The contact person for Those Guys is Kevin Rhoads (contact info below); call or e-mail him if you need assistance. When a call for assistance is received, an email describing the request is forwarded on Those Guys listserv. The listserv also includes women of Lyme who have made themselves available to provide transportation to appointments when needed. For rides needed, listserv members call or e-mail Kevin to say they are available and then contact the person making the request to arrange pick up times and other pertinent details. The members are then notified that the slot has been filled. For other types of assistance, a descriptive message is sent out to see if a member is available to fulfill the request. Membership in Those Guys is open to all men of Lyme. It is informal with no dues. Meetings are the first Wednesday each month for a 6:30 am breakfast at the Lyme Congregational Church. Two man teams prepare the breakfast on a rotating basis. Frequently, there will be a speaker at the breakfast presenting on a variety of interesting topics. Funds generated through the rental of two large ‘Those Guys’-owned tents are returned to such community services as the fire department, nursery school and parish nurse.
