EATON column by Nancy E. Williams 6/19/18 447-5635


Some changes are in the works at the Conway Daily Sun because of high tariffs. Starting on July 1, the columnists have been asked to publish the first and third week of the month from now on. I, for one, certainly understand, because to have to lay off staff would be bad all the way around. So for this week and next I will continue with my Tuesday column, but after that it may be in on Thursday or Friday of the first and third weeks. Therefore, I’ll need your cooperation in getting me your news on Sunday for this next week, and on Tuesdays or Wednesdays for the rest of the time. Thanks for your help!

The Inn at Crystal Lake will take a break from their Watch It Wednesday Movie Nights for the rest of the month of June. Instead they will move them to Monday nights for the months of July and August when they go from serving dinner five nights a week, to six nights for those two busy summer months. Movie schedule TBA. (The Inn will only be closed on Tuesday)

Looking forward, The Inn at Crystal Lake’s Opera Nights will return in September with an annual visit from The New England Tenors. The season kicks off on Friday, September 28. This show always sells out and is one of the Inn’s busiest events of the year, so it’s never too early to make your reservations. $65/per person includes a four-course dinner and lots of wonderful music, both operatic and popular. Don’t miss it. (I’ve already signed up)

Max’s Restaurant and Pub at the Snowvillage Inn invites all to the Art Opening Reception for local artist Linda Gray on Wednesday, June 20, from 4 to 6 p.m. An Artisan Cheese and Cracker plate will be offered by Linda and beverages will be available for purchase. Linda paints the landscapes she loves - from the White Mountains of New Hampshire to the coastal islands of Maine. Be sure to stop by and say hi to Linda and enjoy her beautiful work. Her art will be at the Snowvillage Inn for the months of June and July.

Eaton townspeople, remember that you must have either a beach pass or a car sticker to get onto the Eaton Town Beach. You can easily get these at the Eaton Town Hall most days. Even if you know the Beach Guard, you still must have a pass or sticker. We are so lucky to have this beautiful beach for the Eaton townspeople and their guests, so please follow the rules. Some people are saying the water is “warm,” but I sincerely doubt that. Anyone else agree?

The Fourth of July BBQ is ON, so we’ll be needing some help before, during, and after. The 4th is on Wednesday this year, so Tuesday night, the 3rd we will need some strong men or women to put up our big tent at around 5 p.m., and to move over the other picnic tables. It would be helpful for me to have the Eaton Circle or whoever wants to help, to come down around 10:30 a.m. on the 4th to set up all the tables. Chris Kennedy will once again be serving up the hamburgers and hot dogs (and some veggie burgers), with the help of Tom Head. I take care of the condiments, plates, and napkins, silverware, and cups. Everyone usually brings an hors d’oeuvre, a summer salad, or a delectable dessert so we can all join in the camaraderie and the delicious food together. You may bring whatever you want to drink. Bring some money to participate in the 50/50 raffle, and I will need another person to sell raffle tickets. Lastly, we will need some strong people to take the tent down on Thursday, July 5, at 10:30 a.m. More next week.

Congratulations to 4 Eatonites who ran up Mt. Washington yesterday - Frank Holmes, Heather McKendry. Kevin Flynn, and Alex Norden. Way to go all of you. You’re way stronger than I am.

I went to see Peter Blue’s exhibit at the Conway Public Library and it is as whimsical and unique as he is. You must go see this huge collection of cards of all sorts - you have to look at each one individually to get the whole picture. Speckled throughout the cards are beautiful jewels, shapes and designs of all types, people, shoes, ships, birds, baths, fish, lips, hands, cats, wine bottles, and postage stamps just for starters. The Cards and Letters Clothesline Show can be viewed from Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. On Friday and Saturday, the hours are 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. The exhibit will be there through July 30th.

Don’t forget to e-mail to Jeanne Hartman ( if you want your businesses that reside in Eaton and owned by Eatonites in the new Welcome to Eaton booklet that they are in the process of updating. This includes crafters, artisans, building and design, garden delights, lodging, food and clothing, and other services. They will need the business name, phone number, e-mail, website if you have one, address, and a short description.

Well, the Friends of Conway Rec squeaked out a close win (9 to 8) last week against their rivals from Fryeburg. The girls played well and they really knew their positions, and where to run if there was a special play. Poppy, I hope you heard us cheering for you and the team. Congratulations, girls!

Make sure to come on Friday, June 22nd to the Grand Opening of Little Field Farm on Rte. 153, just north of King Pine Ski area. There will be lots of great produce like many home grown vegetables, homemade bread, and many more items to tempt your palate. There will be many people involved with the Farm this summer: Sarah and Jake Davis, Marylou and Peter Dow, Colton Dow and Samantha Shannon, and Celia and Rick Wilcox. Let’s eat healthy this summer.
