This Wednesday night,
February 19, you have a few choices of where to go in Eaton.
At Snowvillage Inn there will be a Dine to Donate dinner where
15% of the profits goes to the Eaton Village Preservation Society.
EVPS has paid a lot for the refurbishing of our Eaton Village
Store and other projects around town. We will be having a 50/50
raffle as well as a few silent auction items. We want to encourage
everyone who loves EVS to show your support by coming to SVI
this Wednesday. Please call in your reservations at 447-2818.
See you there. (Just a quick reminder that your entrees will
be SVI Chop Suey with salad and garlic bread, Ground Venison
and Beef simmered with root vegetables, or Cape Cod Potato Chip
and Bacon Crusted Haddock) Delicious.
Coming soon at the Snowvillage
Inn will be the ever-popular Jimmy Buffett Caribbean Weekend
on Friday and Saturday, March 20 and 21. This is a super enjoyable
dinner where most guests dress up in Hawaiian shirts, shorts,
flip-flops or sandals, to really get in on all the fun. (Yes,
you wear boots and heavy coats and change). You can switch out
your scarves for a Hawaiian flowery lei. Dressing up is the most
fun, and the specialty drinks and food are wonderful, like fish
tacos anyone? You also get to groove to the music,
featuring the Mango Groove Steel Drum band. Lets welcome
thoughts of spring and get wild.
Watch it Wednesday Movie
Nights are now back at the Palmer House Pub at the Inn at Crystal
Lake. This Wednesday, February 19th, they will be showing Once
Upon a Time in Hollywood. See Brad Pitt in all his glory
from winning the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role.
Movies start at 6:30 p.m. and there is no admission or minimum
food order required. It really is a lot of fun to watch a good
movie in a cozy environment with good food and drink. On Wednesday,
February 26th, you can see the movie which won the Oscar for
Best Picture, Parasite. If you saw the Academy Awards,
I dont think Ive ever seen a more enthusiastic and
shocked group of Koreans, who never thought theyd win Best
Picture. Write that down on your calendars and call the Inn at
Crystal Lake at 447-2120 for either or both Wednesday nights.
Unfortunately, the February
27th Opera Dinner at the Inn at Crystal Lake featuring The
Bostonians has been cancelled. However, the Inn is excited
to announce that Thursday, March 19th the Opera Dinner will be
Verrilli & Ostendorf: Their Favorite Hits. Lifelong
friends, soprano Catherine Verrilli and baritone/innkeeper Tin
Ostendorf will present an evening of some of their favorites.
Selections will come from Mozarts Don Giovanni,
Handels Giulio Cesare, and from the musicals
Sweeney Todd, Carousel, Oklahoma!,
and Camelot. Joining Catherine and Tim will be Opera
Dinner favorite, pianist Cassandra Marsh. $65 per person includes
a four-course dinner and a super evening of entertainment. Guests
arrive between 6 and 6:30 and dinner starts at 7 p.m. Call the
Inn for reservations at 447-2120.
Since most Sundays have
been slow at the Palmer House Pub and ICL, they will be closed
for dinner on Sundays through the end of March.
The Supervisors of the
Checklist of the Town of Eaton will meet in public session, Saturday,
February 29, 2020 between 10:00 and 10:30 a.m. at the Eaton town
Hall for the purpose of making additions, updates and corrections
to the checklist of registered voters (from Jane Gray, Suzanne
Jones, and Kate Goslee).
Im sorry if you
wanted tickets for the Alana MacDonald Band at the Stone Mountain
Arts Center, it is completely sold out. I can hardly wait; Alana
is very excited as well.
Heres an article
from the UNH Cooperative Extension: Do you own a hobby or commercial
beekeeping business? Looking to scale your operation and improve
profitability? This hands-on workshop will help you identify
your cost of production, teach you how to create your own enterprise
budgets, and show how you can determine your product price. Plus,
a few successful beekeepers will answer questions on how they
have built their profitable businesses. This will be held at
the UNH School of Law, 2 White Street, Concord, NH 03301 on Saturday,
March 7 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Preregistration is required
by February 27.
On January 18th Eaton
lost another great, great man, Stanley John Dudrick, M.D. According
to his noteworthy obituary, Stan was widely recognized
and respected throughout the scientific, academic and clinical
world for his innovative and pioneering research in the development
of the specialized central venous feeding technique known as
intravenous total parenteral nutrition (TPN). He was a
renowned surgeon, as well as a professor, director, chairman,
and he garnered many other accolades. Stan and his lovely wife
Terri have owned a house in Eaton for many years, then had a
beautiful house built on Crystal Lake where they eventually moved
full time. The last time I saw him, we were at the Palmer House
Pub not long ago with members of his large family. Every time
he greeted you, it was with a huge smile, a welcoming handshake
or kiss, and something happy and funny to say to you. Despite
his 800 publications, membership in over 100 academic, professional,
and honorary medical and scientific societies, Stan was first
and foremost, a special man: husband, father, grandfather, great
grandfather, and wonderful friend to so many of us. It was my
honor to have known him. RIP Stan. Special love to Terri and
to Stan, Jr.
