Today is Voting Day and everyone must get out to VOTE. It is our privilege and right to be able to vote the way we want in this country, and you all need to exercise that right today at the Eaton Town Hall from 11:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. You must bring your license or an ID to vote. Please bring along some money to buy the excellent baked goods provided by our wonderful Eaton bakers. Thank you to all of them and to everyone who has to be at our Town Hall all day long.

The Snowvillage Inn’s Art Over Harvest Dinners last weekend at Max’s Restaurant were beyond belief. The ambience was lovely, the dining room was filled with laughter, and we enjoyed the most delicious food ever. Thanks to Kevin and Jen, to the waitstaff (especially my girl Jenny), and to Chef Charlie and his friend for providing five fabulous courses. (I will never eat again, I think.) The Snowvillage Inn will be serving a dynamite Thanksgiving dinner on November 22. Please go to their website, look everything over, and make your reservations at 447-2818.

Tim Ostendorf’s 50th Birthday Bash on October 18th at the Inn at Crystal Lake’s second Opera Dinner was a huge success. Tim, you were incredibly good, and it was such a delight to hear you singing with your friend Melissa Williams to the tunes perfectly played by Logan Brown. Thanks to Bobby and the kitchen staff for an outstanding meal and to the wait staff Robin, Aimee, Jade and Lily, who did a super job providing our meals.

Do any of you get the Northern New England Journey magazine? In the November/December issue, on page 44, check out the article “Sage Surprise.” You will find Innkeepers Tim Ostendorf and Bobby Barker’s special recipe for a sage cookie that includes apricot and cornmeal. Join the Inn to Inn Cookie and Candy Tour in December and taste this delicious cookie at the Inn at Crystal Lake.

Everyone knows and loves Rev. Mary Edes, who has been such an inspiration to this valley with her singing, her gentleness, her empathy, and her humor. Mary will lead the South Eaton Meeting House’s annual Thanksgiving service to be held the Sunday, November 18th at 3:00 p.m. We will all meet at this historic building to sing familiar hymns and listen to the words of Rev. Mary. Her sermon is titled “At This Table: In the midst of life with all its complexities and beauty, we will gather together and remember what holds us in community.” Ray Stineford, organist, will accompany our singing on the beautiful reed organ.

The Reverend Mary Edes moved to Silver Lake in 2003, when she accepted a call to serve the UUFES as their minister - a role she enjoyed for nearly twelve years. Prior to entering the Unitarian Universalist ministry, she spent many years in the NH Seacoast, where she was active in the theater and music community, and served as Director of Music at South Church UU, in Portsmouth. Currently, she leads the Silver Lake Singers for Hospice and Healing and serves as a community minister and hospice chaplain, conducting weddings, child dedications, celebrations of life, and reading in various congregations throughout New England.

The South Eaton Meeting House is located at 402 Burnham Road, at the corner of Towle Hill Road, South Eaton. Take Horseleg Hill road off Rt. 153 just south of Purity Spring Resort, East Madison, near the blinking yellow light. For more information, go to or e-mail to

The Eaton Community Circle would like you to save the following dates: ECC Christmas Party to be held at the Snowvillage Inn on Monday, December 3rd at 6:30 p.m. It is potluck, so bring your favorite dish, a Yankee Swap gift and something to drink if you want something more than coffee or water. Come and have fun, bring your partner, neighbor or guest. The ECC Craft Fair/Cafe Luncheon will be held on Saturday, December 8th. The Fair is at the Inn at Crystal Lake from 11 to 4 p.m. and the Cafe, which is held at the Little White Church, runs from 11 to 2 p.m. Come see some wonderful crafts and have a great lunch at the Church. This is always a fun-filled time, so bring all your friends and family.

How about a great time walking into a spooky house on Halloween, full of costumed friends, and finding a huge array of delicious hors d’oeuvres, turkey chili, spicy meatballs and the most amazing cake! Many thanks, Jeanne and John, for such a fun time. Congratulations to Roy and Kathy on their winning costumes, and Jeanne, I ate my cake for breakfast -unbelievable.
