You should have all
received the following letter in the mail: The Eaton Select and
School Boards have voted to hold our annual Town and School Election
on Tuesday, March 9, 2021 with in-person voting at the Eaton
Town Hall from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. Additionally, as we did for
the November 3, 2020 Election, we recommend voting by Absentee
Ballot. The New Hampshire Secretary of State has directed that
anyone with a concern for Covid 19 may vote Absentee by checking
the Disability Reason. We are including with this
letter the form to request an Absentee Ballot for our Town and
School Elections. If you wish to vote Absentee simply fill out
this form and return it to the Town Clerk for the Town of Eaton.
The Eaton Town and School
Boards have also voted to have our annual Town and School Meetings
on Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at the King Pine Ski Center Base Lodge
in Madison, NH. The cafeteria of the base lodge gives us a space
four times the size of our Town Hall, allowing for masked attendees
to participate while socially distanced for Covid 19 safety.
The School Meeting will be held at 5:00 p.m. and the Town Meeting
will be held at 6:00 p.m.
Copies of this letter
will be posted on the Town website, at the Eaton Post Office
and on the Town Bulletin Board outside the Town Hall.
Please note that masks
are required inside the Eaton Town Hall and inside King Pine
Base Lodge. We will assist meeting attendees to socially distance
by keeping household units together while using the 6-foot
rule between parties. Copies of the Annual Report including
the Town and School Warrant articles for 2021 will be available
at the Post Office, at the Town Hall and at both the Election
and the Town and School Meetings. Thank you all for your cooperation.
Rachel Fall of Ossipee
Chalmers Insurance Group is hosting an American Red Cross blood
drive on April 7 from 11 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. at the Center Ossipee
Town Hall gym. You can sign up right on the redcrossblood.org
website and pick a time, and note too, if you are a first time
donor. The need for blood is constant and only volunteer donors
can fulfill that need for patients in and around our communities.
Nationwide, someone needs blood every 203 seconds and most of
us will need blood in our lifetime. Contact Rachel at (603) 733-7151
to learn more and thank you for supporting the American Red Cross
This past weeks
special dish from the Eaton Village Store was Mac nCheese
with smoked corned beef. I will be having it tonight (Sunday).
Last weeks special was Cottage Pie. Just call EVS at 447-2403
and see what soups and sandwiches theyre offering this
week for breakfast and lunch. (Order by Wednesday for the specials
for pick-up on Saturday.) Everything has been delicious. Call
EVS to order groceries as well.
The Snowvillage Inn
keeps ramping up their more-than-tasty dinner specials for dining
inside the restaurant or ordering meals to-go. You will not be
disappointed, and we all really need a safe night out. You must
wear your mask walking around inside. May I suggest you come
sit by the warm, comforting fireplace and enjoy a glass of wine?
If you havent
tried Peter Dows famous brown bread or the many choices
of French croissants at the Little Field Farm stand, you are
just not treating yourselves. How about a cinnamon roll, crinkly
chocolate cookies, molasses cookies, filled pastries? Call 447-1824
to order and pick up on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Go for it.
It is March already;
I get my first shot on Tuesday. It is almost time for the wearing
of the green!
