This Wednesday night, February 19, you have a few choices of where to go in Eaton. At Snowvillage Inn there will be a Dine to Donate dinner where 15% of the profits goes to the Eaton Village Preservation Society. EVPS has paid a lot for the refurbishing of our Eaton Village Store and other projects around town. We will be having a 50/50 raffle as well as a few silent auction items. We want to encourage everyone who loves EVS to show your support by coming to SVI this Wednesday. Please call in your reservations at 447-2818. See you there. (Just a quick reminder that your entrees will be SVI Chop Suey with salad and garlic bread, Ground Venison and Beef simmered with root vegetables, or Cape Cod Potato Chip and Bacon Crusted Haddock) Delicious.

Coming soon at the Snowvillage Inn will be the ever-popular Jimmy Buffett Caribbean Weekend on Friday and Saturday, March 20 and 21. This is a super enjoyable dinner where most guests dress up in Hawaiian shirts, shorts, flip-flops or sandals, to really get in on all the fun. (Yes, you wear boots and heavy coats and change). You can switch out your scarves for a Hawaiian flowery lei. Dressing up is the most fun, and the specialty drinks and food are wonderful, like fish tacos anyone? You also get to “groove” to the music, featuring the Mango Groove Steel Drum band. Let’s welcome thoughts of spring and get wild.

Watch it Wednesday Movie Nights are now back at the Palmer House Pub at the Inn at Crystal Lake. This Wednesday, February 19th, they will be showing “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” See Brad Pitt in all his glory from winning the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role. Movies start at 6:30 p.m. and there is no admission or minimum food order required. It really is a lot of fun to watch a good movie in a cozy environment with good food and drink. On Wednesday, February 26th, you can see the movie which won the Oscar for Best Picture, “Parasite.” If you saw the Academy Awards, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more enthusiastic and shocked group of Koreans, who never thought they’d win Best Picture. Write that down on your calendars and call the Inn at Crystal Lake at 447-2120 for either or both Wednesday nights.

Unfortunately, the February 27th Opera Dinner at the Inn at Crystal Lake featuring “The Bostonians” has been cancelled. However, the Inn is excited to announce that Thursday, March 19th the Opera Dinner will be “Verrilli & Ostendorf: Their Favorite Hits.” Lifelong friends, soprano Catherine Verrilli and baritone/innkeeper Tin Ostendorf will present an evening of some of their favorites. Selections will come from Mozart’s “Don Giovanni,” Handel’s “Giulio Cesare,” and from the musicals “Sweeney Todd,” “Carousel,” “Oklahoma!,” and “Camelot.” Joining Catherine and Tim will be Opera Dinner favorite, pianist Cassandra Marsh. $65 per person includes a four-course dinner and a super evening of entertainment. Guests arrive between 6 and 6:30 and dinner starts at 7 p.m. Call the Inn for reservations at 447-2120.

Since most Sundays have been slow at the Palmer House Pub and ICL, they will be closed for dinner on Sundays through the end of March.

The Supervisors of the Checklist of the Town of Eaton will meet in public session, Saturday, February 29, 2020 between 10:00 and 10:30 a.m. at the Eaton town Hall for the purpose of making additions, updates and corrections to the checklist of registered voters (from Jane Gray, Suzanne Jones, and Kate Goslee).

I’m sorry if you wanted tickets for the Alana MacDonald Band at the Stone Mountain Arts Center, it is completely sold out. I can hardly wait; Alana is very excited as well.

Here’s an article from the UNH Cooperative Extension: Do you own a hobby or commercial beekeeping business? Looking to scale your operation and improve profitability? This hands-on workshop will help you identify your cost of production, teach you how to create your own enterprise budgets, and show how you can determine your product price. Plus, a few successful beekeepers will answer questions on how they have built their profitable businesses. This will be held at the UNH School of Law, 2 White Street, Concord, NH 03301 on Saturday, March 7 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Preregistration is required by February 27.

On January 18th Eaton lost another great, great man, Stanley John Dudrick, M.D. According to his noteworthy obituary, Stan “was widely recognized and respected throughout the scientific, academic and clinical world for his innovative and pioneering research in the development of the specialized central venous feeding technique known as intravenous total parenteral nutrition (TPN).” He was a renowned surgeon, as well as a professor, director, chairman, and he garnered many other accolades. Stan and his lovely wife Terri have owned a house in Eaton for many years, then had a beautiful house built on Crystal Lake where they eventually moved full time. The last time I saw him, we were at the Palmer House Pub not long ago with members of his large family. Every time he greeted you, it was with a huge smile, a welcoming handshake or kiss, and something happy and funny to say to you. Despite his 800 publications, membership in over 100 academic, professional, and honorary medical and scientific societies, Stan was first and foremost, a special man: husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and wonderful friend to so many of us. It was my honor to have known him. RIP Stan. Special love to Terri and to Stan, Jr.
