EATON column by Nancy

Thankfully, Town Meeting
was held on Thursday, not Tuesday during the big blizzard. I
hope all the Selectmen, Town Clerks, Town Secretary, Supervisors
of the Check List, Town Moderator, and everyone working the polls,
and all the people at the School Meeting were able to get home
safely on Tuesday. I heard it was very rough out there. Thanks
for your dedication to Eaton and all the work you do all year
long. We couldnt do it without you. At Town Meeting there
was great discussion about several issues, and Thaire Bryant
did a good job keeping the conversations going as Moderator.
Personally, I think September Quint did an outstanding job making
a case for the Rec. Center. Im sorry it didnt pass
but it was so close. Thanks to everyone participating in the
discussions. Our Town Meetings are a great example of democracy
at work. Thanks to the Eaton bakers for delicious goodies.

of the Caribbean this year as I will be flying home from Florida,
but you all must go in my stead because the whole evening is
a super fun event.
Last week I spoke about
the passing of our good friend, Mardie Smith, but I forgot to
mention the Memorial Service Celebration of her life. This will
be on May 20 at 1 p.m. at the First Congregational Church in
North Conway. Mardie was so well loved; there will be many family
members and friends in attendance. Mark this date down now on
The next Watch It Wednesday
movie at the Inn at Crystal Lakes Palmer House Pub will
be on March 22. Tim and Bobby will be screening the six-time
Oscar nominated Manchester by the Sea (it was nominated
for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and three other categories).
If you missed it in the theaters, heres your chance. The
movie starts at 7 p.m. and there is no admission or minimum food
order required. Reservations are recommended.
