Two Eaton events coming
to our Little White Church in September:
Ellen Schwindt is planning
an open piano evening on September 15, from 7-8:30 p.m. at the
Little White Church. Ellen is planning a diverse program including
performances by her students and other community members. Anchoring
it are two canonical pieces. Charlotte Gill and Ellen will perform
Mozarts piano and violin sonata, K. 304, composed in Paris
in the early summer of 1778. Its one of her favorite pieces
of music, perfectly proportioned and full of pathos. Maisie Brown,
a teen pianist in Ellens studio, will perform Debussys
Arabesque number 1, a piece sure to evoke memories of all the
bubbling brooks youve had a chance to sit beside this summer.
Donations are appreciated and will help support the LWC.
After a hiatus due to
COVID, Kayaks and Casseroles is back at our Little White Church!
Bring your decorated kayak or other water transportation to the
Eaton beach at 4:30 on Sunday, September 18. Boats will shove
off at 5:00, parade around the lake and end up near the church.
A short walk to the LWC will be rewarded with a delicious dinner
consisting of a variety of casseroles. Side dishes and salads
may be donated to fill out the meal.
Dont forget to
vote in the NH State Primary on Tuesday, September 13, at the
Eaton Town Hall between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
Jeanne Hartman is asking bakers to bring in baked goods by 11:00
that morning, to raise money for the Eaton Community Circle.
Make sure to vote and bring your wallet to buy delicious baked
It was indeed a 50
center day at Waukeela Camp for Girls on Saturday, September
10, 2022, for the Celebration of the Incredible Life of Nancy
Evans Burns, or familiarly Nan EB. Six stellar musicians spread
beauty and joy as they performed throughout the day: Dana Cunningham
- piano; Julia Hendrickson - flute, voice; Carolyn Cantin Desmarais
- flute; Amy Bridgham Kelley - viola, voice; Kate Vachon - flute;
Jen Crouser - voice. All of these performers were very close
to Nan EB.
Many members of the
Burns family had the large audience laughing hysterically, or
tearing up occasionally as they spoke lovingly of life with this
amazing woman: son Jack Burns, daughter Alice Chavarria Burns,
grandson Guillermo Chavarria Burns, daughter Cathy Paris and
her friend Stu Wilson, grandson Evan Paris, son Michael Burns,
daughter in law Lindsey Burns, and granddaughter Taryn Burns.
All of their reflections and the beautiful songs and poems they
read, gave us a perfect picture of who Nan EB really was and
how beloved she is to all of us.
I will end with Nan
EBs own words: Continue to learn, to laugh and to listen
- be inclusive and be positive. Be safe, be kind, be you. Love
wraps it all up. And dont forget to write thank you notes!
