EATON column by Nancy
E. Williams 6/19/18 447-5635
Some changes are in
the works at the Conway Daily Sun because of high tariffs. Starting
on July 1, the columnists have been asked to publish the first
and third week of the month from now on. I, for one, certainly
understand, because to have to lay off staff would be bad all
the way around. So for this week and next I will continue with
my Tuesday column, but after that it may be in on Thursday or
Friday of the first and third weeks. Therefore, Ill need
your cooperation in getting me your news on Sunday for this next
week, and on Tuesdays or Wednesdays for the rest of the time.
Thanks for your help!
The Inn at Crystal Lake
will take a break from their Watch It Wednesday Movie Nights
for the rest of the month of June. Instead they will move them
to Monday nights for the months of July and August when they
go from serving dinner five nights a week, to six nights for
those two busy summer months. Movie schedule TBA. (The Inn will
only be closed on Tuesday)
Looking forward, The
Inn at Crystal Lakes Opera Nights will return in September
with an annual visit from The New England Tenors. The season
kicks off on Friday, September 28. This show always sells out
and is one of the Inns busiest events of the year, so its
never too early to make your reservations. $65/per person includes
a four-course dinner and lots of wonderful music, both operatic
and popular. Dont miss it. (Ive already signed up)
and Pub at the Snowvillage Inn invites all to the Art Opening
Reception for local artist Linda Gray on Wednesday, June 20,
from 4 to 6 p.m. An Artisan Cheese and Cracker plate will be
offered by Linda and beverages will be available for purchase.
Linda paints the landscapes she loves - from the White Mountains
of New Hampshire to the coastal islands of Maine. Be sure to
stop by and say hi to Linda and enjoy her beautiful work. Her
art will be at the Snowvillage Inn for the months of June and
Eaton townspeople, remember
that you must have either a beach pass or a car sticker to get
onto the Eaton Town Beach. You can easily get these at the Eaton
Town Hall most days. Even if you know the Beach Guard, you still
must have a pass or sticker. We are so lucky to have this beautiful
beach for the Eaton townspeople and their guests, so please follow
the rules. Some people are saying the water is warm,
but I sincerely doubt that. Anyone else agree?
The Fourth of July BBQ
is ON, so well be needing some help before, during, and
after. The 4th is on Wednesday this year, so Tuesday night, the
3rd we will need some strong men or women to put up our big tent
at around 5 p.m., and to move over the other picnic tables. It
would be helpful for me to have the Eaton Circle or whoever wants
to help, to come down around 10:30 a.m. on the 4th to set up
all the tables. Chris Kennedy will once again be serving up the
hamburgers and hot dogs (and some veggie burgers), with the help
of Tom Head. I take care of the condiments, plates, and napkins,
silverware, and cups. Everyone usually brings an hors doeuvre,
a summer salad, or a delectable dessert so we can all join in
the camaraderie and the delicious food together. You may bring
whatever you want to drink. Bring some money to participate in
the 50/50 raffle, and I will need another person to sell raffle
tickets. Lastly, we will need some strong people to take the
tent down on Thursday, July 5, at 10:30 a.m. More next week.
Congratulations to 4
Eatonites who ran up Mt. Washington yesterday - Frank Holmes,
Heather McKendry. Kevin Flynn, and Alex Norden. Way to go all
of you. Youre way stronger than I am.
I went to see Peter
Blues exhibit at the Conway Public Library and it is as
whimsical and unique as he is. You must go see this huge collection
of cards of all sorts - you have to look at each one individually
to get the whole picture. Speckled throughout the cards are beautiful
jewels, shapes and designs of all types, people, shoes, ships,
birds, baths, fish, lips, hands, cats, wine bottles, and postage
stamps just for starters. The Cards and Letters Clothesline Show
can be viewed from Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
On Friday and Saturday, the hours are 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. The
exhibit will be there through July 30th.
Dont forget to
e-mail to Jeanne Hartman (email@example.com) if you want
your businesses that reside in Eaton and owned by Eatonites in
the new Welcome to Eaton booklet that they are in the process
of updating. This includes crafters, artisans, building and design,
garden delights, lodging, food and clothing, and other services.
They will need the business name, phone number, e-mail, website
if you have one, address, and a short description.
Well, the Friends of
Conway Rec squeaked out a close win (9 to 8) last week against
their rivals from Fryeburg. The girls played well and they really
knew their positions, and where to run if there was a special
play. Poppy, I hope you heard us cheering for you and the team.
Make sure to come on
Friday, June 22nd to the Grand Opening of Little Field Farm on
Rte. 153, just north of King Pine Ski area. There will be lots
of great produce like many home grown vegetables, homemade bread,
and many more items to tempt your palate. There will be many
people involved with the Farm this summer: Sarah and Jake Davis,
Marylou and Peter Dow, Colton Dow and Samantha Shannon, and Celia
and Rick Wilcox. Lets eat healthy this summer.
