Do you believe that it is the last week of June? Where has the time gone? The weather has been quite good; I wish it was like this all summer. Goodbye to the black flies and good riddance. Now if the mosquitoes would go away??

Many thanks to John Hartman for getting and putting up the banner announcing our famous July 4th BBQ/picnic on Tuesday, July 4th. We will have the plates, napkins (both sizes of each), forks, spoons and knives, the hamburgers, veggie burgers, and hot dogs, the rolls, the onions, ketchup, relish and mustard all there for you and your family and friends. Please bring along a favorite recipe for beans, summer salads, hors d’oeuvres, and of course, last but definitely not least, fabulous desserts. Bring your own beverage, but remember no glass is allowed on the beach. We will have bins for trash and other bins for plastic and aluminum (together), so the clean-up will be easy. The renowned 50/50 raffle will naturally be taking place. I already have Southern Quint to pull one of the winning tickets. I need one more person to sell raffle tickets.

This is the day to celebrate this grand country of ours with all your neighbors and friends. It is the Big 4th! The picnic will begin around noontime. The Eaton Community Circle will be helping me set the picnic tables and put out the plates and silverware (well, you know what I mean). Bring your bathing suits and frolic in our beautiful Crystal Lake. How about some frisbees or some fun games? Bring your kids, of course, but no animals allowed. On Monday, July 3, I will need people to set up the tent and set out the picnic tables. At 5:00 we can do that and it is over by 6:00. The more people, the quicker it goes. How about some young blood? Then on Wednesday, the tent must come down. Say around noon? I hope to see everyone in town joining together to have a great meal and reminisce. See YOU there.

The Eaton Town Hall will be open on Monday morning, July 3rd and 10th, from 9 to 11, but will be completely closed all day on July 4th. The selectmen will reopen on Tuesday night, July 11.

Max’s Restaurant and Pub at the Snowvillage Inn celebrates customer appreciation night again this Tuesday, June 27, with its last coupon special from Kevin and Jen on Locals’ Night. Be sure to bring it with you or have it on your phone to get a half-price blueberry mojito. Entrees for the evening include: Wahoo Kabob with onion, red pepper, tomato, and teriyaki; Max’s Meatloaf with barbecue sauce and potato salad; and Pedro’s Chicken Taco with avocado, salsa, greens and smoked paprika aioli. Thursdays are Max’s in the Raw and Oyster Orgy with Little Neck Clams, Crudo, Peel and Eat Shrimp, Soft Shell Crab, and Sashimi. Give the Inn a call at 447-2818 to reserve your table.

This week’s Watch It Wednesday at the Inn at Crystal Lake is the 1971 cult classic, “Harold and Maude” with Ruth Gordon and a soundtrack by Cat Stevens. The movie has a great message to live life to its fullest. If you haven’t seen the movie in a while, come on into the Palmer House Pub on Wednesday. Movie starts at 7 p.m. Reservations are recommended. Call 447-2120. After this week, Movie Nights will move to Mondays for July and August (the Inn will serve dinner Wednesday - Monday for those two months, only closed on Tuesday). This summer’s theme is Movie Musical Mondays, and the first few films are 7/3 “Chicago,” 7/10 “Burlesque” and 7/17 “Moulin Rouge!” The full lineup can be found on the Inn’s website: After two months the Inn at Crystal Lake’s new Chef, Louis Belvedere, has settled in nicely. He grew up in Florence, Italy, and trained in Paris, so definitely give his menu a try. The risotto (with or without lobster) is delicious.

Betsy and Don Gemmecke completed their walk on the Cost to Coast Trail and walked across Northern England. They clocked in 245 miles of walking (yes, you did read that right, 245 miles) and wanted to say they so appreciated all the support people gave to their effort. They also wanted to give a big thank you to those who donated to the Open Medicine Foundation in tribute to their daughter, who has myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). for further information or donations go to: Way to go, Betsy and Don - we are in awe.
