This week marks the second of the Inn at Crystal Lake’s Musical Dinner Series a.k.a. Opera Dinners. On Thursday, October 18, owner/innkeeper Tim Ostendorf will be the featured singer to celebrate his 50th birthday. He will give a recital of music that he has always wanted to do, both classical and musical theater, including some songs he hasn’t sung in years. This is a night to celebrate Tim, Tim, and Tim. Special guests, soprano Melissa Williams and pianist Logan Brown, will be joining Tim for this special event. The cost is $65 per person which includes a four-course dinner prepared by chef/owner Bobby Barker. Call 447-2120 to make your reservations right away. It will be a great birthday party. Happy Birthday, Tim.

The 3rd Opera Dinner at the Inn at Crystal Lake will be held on Sunday, November 4, a Sunday matinee at 4:00 p.m.) and will feature the History of Great Singers on Film with a special price of $45 per person. Voice professor William Cotten from The Boston Conservatory returns with a lecture/presentation on the art of singers as captured in the movies.

The breakfast and lunch counter at the Eaton Village Store will be closed from Sunday, October 21 through October 29. They will reopen on Tuesday, October 30th. Your favorite Post Office will be open, of course, but the hours may vary. I hope Kate, Justin, Poppy and Ruby will enjoy relaxing and having someone else cook for them. Enjoy, Armenios.

The Annual Ciderfest will be held at the Jenkins Uplands Apple Farm on Saturday, October 27th from around ten a.m. until we are finished mid-afternoon. It is a pot luck lunch and donations for cider go to local food pantries. Contact for questions and/or directions. A cider order sheet is hanging at the Eaton Village Store. Cider keeps perfectly, if frozen, for over a year. This cider is a unique blend of hand picked heritage and modern apple varieties. If you haven’t had Eleanor’s cider, I’m promising you that it is the best cider anywhere. Sign up at EVS this week. Bring friends if you can, rain or shine, and we will gather once again at 381 Towle Hill Road in South Eaton.

The Snowvillage Inn is pleased to announce Max’s Art Over Harvest Dinner on Friday, November 2nd and Saturday, November 3rd. Each unique evening highlights the pairing of 7 artists with 7 farms in Maine and New Hampshire for a showcase of agriculturally-inspired art and food in a special family-style service. On Friday, November 2 the artist reception from 4 to 6 p.m. is followed by dinner at 6:15 (one seating). On Saturday, November 3, the artist reception is from 5 to 6 p.m. with dinner at 6:15 (one seating). The cost for this one-of-a-kind dinner is $75 per person. Ten percent of all the proceeds will be donated to End 68 Hours of Hunger in Conway. Call the Snowvillage Inn at 447-2818 for more information and to make reservations.

Make sure you come out to vote on Tuesday, November 6 for the County, State and Congressional elections: US House of Representatives, NH Governor, NH House of Representatives, NH Senate, and Executive Council along with 2 ballot questions. You may vote at the Eaton Town Hall from 11:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Make sure to bring your ID with you, and some money to buy baked goods made by wonderful Eaton bakers. We need people to bake for that day, of course, and you may drop your goods off after 11:00. It is probably easier if you price your goods yourselves, and then everyone will be able to buy up those delicious goodies on the spot. All proceeds go to the Eaton Community Circle’s Scholarship Fund. What can you make? Cookies, bread, pies, brownies, fudge, cake, ice cream (I just threw that in to see if you were paying attention). Half the fun of going over to vote is buying delectable sweets, right? Make sure to get out to vote; there are many who don’t have that privilege or that freedom.

My columns will be on the following Tuesdays: November 6, November 20, December 4, and December 18. Deadlines are the Sunday before. So many events occur in these last two months, so please send your information to me soon. Thank you in advance.
