The Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield was sure rocking a week ago Saturday night with the Alana MacDonald Band’s stellar performance. Alana MacDonald, Teg Glendon, Robbie Coffin, and Mike McGinnis were so dynamite that the rafters shook. I think half of Eaton was there, as well, including most of “my” table of 16 people. The fabulous music and singing, the very funny jokes and banter, and the seamless bond between band members and the audience, made this one of the absolute best concerts ever. I just talked to Alana, and she wants to thank everyone for coming out and supporting her band. Make sure you follow her; I will let you know when you can catch this dynamic group of musicians next. Hey, Simon Crawford, it was super fun to have you join them on stage. GREAT JOB EVERYONE. (I am still dancing to the songs.)

Because of some travel bans due to the Coronavirus, Eaton’s Inn at Crystal Lake’s Opera Dinner on Thursday March 19 has been postponed. Tim’s great friend, Catherine Verrilli cannot fly out here. They hope to reschedule for early June. Stay tuned.

Movie Night Wednesdays at the Palmer House Pub (Inn at Crystal Lake) will continue with “JoJo Rabbit” on 3/25, “1917” on 4/1, “Harriet” on 4/8, “Little Women” on 4/22, and “Judy” on 4/29.

You cannot miss the Jimmy Buffet Caribbean Weekend at the Snowvillage Inn in Eaton coming up on Friday and Saturday, March 20 and 21. You’re encouraged to dress in special sunny island attire, listen to Mango Groove, a Steel Drum Band, order a fancy fruity drink and sample the Caribbean menu. Shed your coat, boots, scarves, and gloves at the door and relax in a fun, sunny atmosphere with neighbors and friends.

Again this year, the Eaton Conservation Commission has funds available to pay part of the cost for Eaton children between the ages of 4 and 16 to attend Tin Mountain Conservation Center summer camps. If you are interested in taking advantage of this offer, please contact Judy Fowler at 447-5635 before May 10th. The Tin Mountain camp brochures are available on the bookcase by the door near the post office.

Suzanne Raiche, Town Clerk and Tax Collector for Eaton, NH, wants townspeople to try to do any town business on line instead of coming into the Town Hall, for everyone’s safety. If you have motor vehicle renewals, questions about tax issues, or any registrations, just mail your requests to Suzanne, P.O. Box 118, Eaton NH 03832. If you absolutely must go to the Town Hall, do so, but if it can be done by mail, please use this avenue. She suggested going to kiosk and choosing your town and state and have your tax map and lot numbers available, or going to the Town of Eaton website. This will keep all of us safer. Thanks in advance.

I will end with a funny poem with Author Unknown about weather in March and April: “Whether the weather be fine, Whether the weather be not, Whether the weather be cold, Whether the weather be hot, We’ll weather the weather, Whatever the weather, Whether we like it or not.”
