EATON column by Nancy E. Williams 4/6/21 447-5635
Im writing this
on Easter Sunday, so I want to wish everyone a Happy Easter.
I hope you all received Easter baskets of some kind, colored
eggs, chocolates, peeps, jelly beans, fresh flowers, and bunnies,
because we had such a beautiful day for a celebration. Spring
has sprung and we are all waiting for what is in store. Hopefully,
we can resume hugging, go out to eat more, enjoy each others
company, and take walks in our beautiful town. Think positive
and enjoy the sunshine.

two weeks ago, and I hope it gets in this Tuesday, because it
involves a Blood Drive on 4/7/21. The Ossipee Chalmers Group
Blood Drive on Wednesday this week is hosting an American Red
Cross blood drive on April 7 from 11 to 4:30 at the Center Ossipee
Town Hall gym. You can sign up right on the redcrossblood.org
website to pick a time and note if you are a first time donor.
The need for blood is constant and only volunteers can fulfill
that need for patients in and around our communities.

for purchase. The artist reception is free and the public is
invited to attend. Sandis passion for drawing and painting
began at an early age and the Arts have been an important part
of her life. Now, as a semi-retired healthcare consultant, she
has finally found the time to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming
Though mostly self-taught,
Sandi has attended many local and nationally acclaimed workshops.
She was a participating member of the Ellis River Art Gallery
and is currently on the board of the Mount Washington Valley
Arts Association and the Friday Painters Group. She

Field Inn, and Sandi had a solo exhibit at M&D Productions.

ongoing workshops and fellowship with other artists. Come see
