I’m sure by now most of you have received the Eaton Village Preservation Society’s annual President’s letter, a very colorful run-down of the last year’s events, and the Membership Form for 2024. This organization, EVPS, has accomplished so much since 2004 when it was formed in order to save our store. EVPS purchased our Eaton Village Store in August of 2004, and we should all be proud and thankful to all the members and proprietors who have dedicatedly contributed in so many ways over these years. We now have our Store back this time in Maggie Flynn’s capable hands, who, along with cooking some fantastic food, has Rachel Manning and Mary Ann Abrams as the best helpers with the most spirit and laughter they can bring. Voila. Treat yourselves to a delicious breakfast or lunch from Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday even including Sunday breakfast until noon. The Store is vibrant, fun, has an incredible vibe, and the food is top notch every day. What are you waiting for? C’mon down, Eatonites and everyone else who enjoys food and fun.

The EVPS Board is planning to paint our favorite store soon and a lot of prep work will be necessary. Please help us reach our goals by becoming a member for 2024/25 (tax deductible). We are all in this together. Thanks to our current Board for everything.

There is a great free event for those who are considering camping with an RV starting this summer. Eaton residents Don and Betsy Gemmecke are teaching a free program with Jackson residents Greg and Melinda Foley-Marsello called “Is RVing for you”? It will be held at the Whitney Community Center in Jackson on Wednesday, June 19, from 7-8:30 p.m.

If you have a sense of wanderlust and a thirst for adventure, RVing might be an option for you. Garner tips on renting or buying, getting to know your RV, planning an RV trip, enjoying and getting the most out of your trip, how to find places to stay, and tips on North American locations, especially National and Provincial Parks to visit. Come join us and pass the word to anyone in the Valley. (In my mind, it sure beats putting up a tent and walking to the bathroom, right?) Everyone should come see for yourself if this is for you.

Please join us on June 27th at 6:00 p.m. at the Eaton Town Hall: The Eaton School Board would like to invite you to a public discussion regarding the upcoming school contracts and the future direction of our education program. Current contacts can be viewed on the SAU9 website - scan QR on postcard or visit Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you on June 27th! Monique Hebert, Nella Thompson, and Sue Wiley

Have you sent your 90th birthday cards to Ginger Blymyer yet? No? You better get them in the mail pronto because her real 90th birthday is June 17, but the Big Celebration is on June 22nd from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Xochi’s house at 6648 Bellingham Avenue, North Hollywood, CA 91606. (If you are attending this special milestone birthday, you should already have told Xochi.) Our Ginger is 90 years young and the theme of the day is a garden library, of course. Bring a book and dress accordingly. Woo Hoo, Ginger!

What a wonderful afternoon we had at the South Eaton Meeting House on June 9th. To all who thought that combining a big celebration and awards, with listening to their antique reed organ music played by George Wiese, and topping all that off with eating a full smorgasbord for ice cream sundaes, indeed had the winning idea of the summer. What a gorgeous day for all to enjoy George and the beautiful organ music, celebrating all the accomplishments of the incredibly hard-working and dedicated people who take such good care of our beloved SEMH, and reminiscing with friends as we thoroughly enjoyed our fantastic ice cream sundaes. (I think most people had seconds - I know I did.) Yes, a totally WIN-WIN day. Thanks to you all at the South Eaton Meeting House.
