Okay everyone, it is
time to clean out your attics, garages and houses, and save your
spring cleaning goodies for the Little White Churchs July
Yard Sale on Saturday and Sunday, July 13 and 14 from 10 a.m.
to 4 p.m. both days. What you dont use every day might
be the perfect item for someone else. The drop-off for items
for sale is July 11 and 12 from 1 to 6 p.m. All of the sales
proceeds will go toward the considerable costs of rebuilding
the outside of the church steeple, which has always required
periodic maintenance, but this last winter sustained considerable
water damage on the north side. Fortunately, the water damage
did not affect the sanctuary ceiling like it did 12 years ago.
A local contractor, Thomas Costello, and his crew will begin
work on the steeple very shortly.
This yard sale is part
of a larger fund-raising project that will include a public appeal
which has already begun, but if people want to donate now, please
visit our website www.littlewhitechurch.com and donate online
or mail donations to the Little White Church, P.O. Box 31, Eaton,
NH 03832. Donations are tax deductible. The LWC is non-denominational,
non-profit, and non-political where numerous services, weddings,
memorials, concerts and fun community activities occur throughout
the year. Please support this beautiful edifice in our valley.
A Mass of Christian
Burial for Elaine A. Hennigan (nee Corcoran), will be celebrated
at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, June 21, 2019 at Our Lady of the Mountains
Roman Catholic Church on Rte. 16 in North Conway, NH. Immediately
following the Mass, all are invited to a reception at the Shannon
Door Restaurant in Jackson, NH, located at the junction of Rte.
16 and 16A, north of the village loop. Almost everyone in this
town knew Elaine, her husband Paul, and their son Paul, Jr.,
his wife Susie, and daughter Grace. Elaine had a big influence
in our town, working on so many town projects, walking along
cleaning up our roads, selling eggs, contributing much of her
time (while teaching school for 43 years), to help our village
grow, prosper and become a lovely and friendly place to live.
Her positive attitude and happy disposition will never be forgotten
by her family and many friends. We will really miss you, Elaine.
Love to her family.
Please stop in to the
Conway Public Library during the months of June and July to see
Peter Blues Clothesline Show, with intricate drawings and
artwork strung up together, in his words piggly, wiggly,
bird, bath, pie, cat, hips, fish, lips, poke you in the eye.
Now if that doesnt make you curious, you must go see this
unique exhibit as soon as possible. I cant wait to see
it again this year, Peter.

I would like to commend
Snowvillage Inn which was recently featured in the June issue
of New York Lifestyles Magazine Travel section featuring Summer
in the Granite State. Writer Laurie Baine Wilson describes
the Snowvillage Inn: This sought-out off-the-beaten-path
inn in Eaton Center, NH, with mountain range views, is offering
guided Outdoor Adventures for Beginners packages
this summer, perfect for city slickers. Cocktails on the porch
and dinners in Maxs Restaurant and Pub, too. This
publication with a circulation of 408,622 copies, won the 2013
award for Magazine of the Year.
Summer is finally upon
us (except for the rainy days and cool temps?), and that means
the Eaton Town Beach is officially open. If you havent
gotten your beach passes yet, stop by the Town Hall and see Lianne
this week. Permanent residents will get one pass and one sticker.
You may also send a sase envelope to the Town Hall, P. O. Box
88, Eaton, NH 03832 and do it by mail. The Town Hall is open
almost every day, so please dont use that as an excuse
as to why you dont have your pass. The Beach Guards work
hard to make sure Eaton residents and their guests can use the
beach. Lets all enjoy our beautiful Crystal Lake.
Speaking of summer,
the July 4th Barbecue/Picnic will be taking place on the Fourth
(Thursday) as always, starting at noon. We will need some strong
people at the Beach on Wednesday, July 3 at 5:00 p.m. to put
up the tent; people to help set up tables on July 4, at 10:30
a.m.; and again on Friday, July 5 at 10:30 a.m. to take down
the tent. It will then be taken to the Little White Church for
the Yard Sale on July 13th and 14th. Were always on the
look-out for younger guys or gals to help with the tent. Please
offer to help. While I have guys cooking hamburgers and hot dogs,
I will need families/townspeople to bring a dish to share with
everyone: an hors doeuvre, a salad, a dessert, or a side
dish. I will need 2 people to sell raffle tickets on the 4th.
If you want to sample everything, my advice would be to come
between noon and 1:00. My next column will be Tuesday, July 2nd.
Have a great summer.
