You really missed a delicious
meal if you didnt attend the South Eaton Meeting House
Fair and Luncheon last Saturday. For meat items, you had at least
7 choices of delicious meals, followed by at least 12 varieties
of salads to choose from. If you were still hungry, you could
check out the fabulous desserts at the dessert table, truly delectable.
You could buy raffle tickets for some great items, pour through
items at the white elephant table, peruse the interesting books
inside the Meeting House, and get some wonderful bargains on
dishes and glasses. This is my favorite little Fair and I hardly
ever miss it. Please plan on going next year, on Saturday, right
after the Freedom Old Home Week Parade. You will not be disappointed.
The BerryKnoll blueberries
are now ready, due to last weekends heat hastening the
ripening process. Blueberries are still $4.25/quart. All of the
currants, black, red, champagne and white are ready as well as
the gooseberries. New gorgeous daylilies bloom every day. As
long as there is enough daylight to see the berries, you are
welcome to be here, morning and evening, but do bring something
to discourage the deer flies if you can. Linda and Dave Sorensen
invite you down to BerryKnoll, 67 Old Portland Road, off the
Brownfield Road in Eaton.
If you are interested
in fresh produce, baked goods, and meat items, drive down to
Little Field Farm Stand on Rte. 153, 2 miles south of Eaton Center
on your right. This wonderful farm stand has a little bit of
everything: fresh bread and croissants; tons of fresh vegetables
such as cherry tomatoes, eggplant, beans, corn; spaghetti sauce,
jams; ground beef, pork sausage and cuts. They are open on Friday
from 12 to 6, on Saturday from 10 to 6, and on Sunday, from 10
to 5. Almost one-stop shopping.
The Little White Church
has just launched a GoFundMe page to raise money for the rebuilding
of our steeple. Please check it out and share with everybody.
Go to https://www.gofundme.com/help-us-rebuild-our-steeple This
project needs everyones help. If you got married in the
LWC, or attended a concert, or came to the Christmas Eve service,
or had a fund-raiser, or a Memorial Service in our beautiful
church, please help us raise this money to restore our lovely
steeple. The LWC has been called the very soul of our special
town. You can also donate directly from our website: www.littlewhitechurch.com
or mail in a donation to LWC, P.O. Box 31, Eaton, NH 03832.
Make sure to enjoy our
lovely Crystal Lake in town, very refreshing during some of these
hot summer days. We are lucky to live in such a beautiful place,
surrounded by forests and fields.
Many of us are headed
down tonight, Sunday, August 4th to hear Alana MacDonald and
her new band perform at the Tamworth Farmstand. After Devonsquare
amicably parted ways after 40 years of music, Alana wasnt
finished with music. Im so looking forward to the concert,
and I will keep you informed of other concerts so you can follow
her, too. Love you, dear friend.
Congratulations to Carol
Noonan and Jeff Flagg on celebrating the 13th anniversary of
their very successful music venture, The Stone Mountain Arts
Center in Brownfield, ME. The audience thrived on the music from
Carol and her Stone Mountain Boys, with a special guest appearance
of Chris Smither to add to the spectacular event. We love you,
SMAC, and all of the fantastic staff there. BEAUTIFUL, as Fred
would have said.
