It is that time of year
again. The Little White Church in Eaton will be hosting Kayaks
and Casseroles, one of our favorite events. We will meet
at the Eaton beach at 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 28th with our decorated
recreational boat of choice to paddle leisurely across the lake,
where we will leave our boats and walk to the Little White Church
for a Community Dinner. Participants are encouraged to bring
side salads, side dishes or desserts; main dishes and drinks
will be provided. Come and boat or just come to the dinner around

Most of you know that
Don and Betsy Gemmecke will be going on a long trek across England
on the 192 mile Wainwright Coast to Coast Trail. They are dedicating
this walk to their daughter Becky, who has been suffering from
a complex and debilitating chronic disease for over 6 years.
For the last 1 1/2 years she has been in a clinical trial at
the Stanford ME/CFS Initiative, which collaborates with the Open
Medicine Foundation that has brought in top experts from a variety
of fields for a new research project to understand and find a
cure for this terrible disease. If people would like to donate,
they should go to https://www.omf.ngo and click donate and for
the tribute, use in honor of Rebecca Divita. We so
hope they will find a way to relieve your pain, Becky.
I thought you might
be interested in the 2017 Sheriff Patrol summary sheet for the
month of April. The total number of stops was 63, including 10
summons, 45 warnings, 4 medical aid, 1 arrest, and 3 others.
People driving too fast through the Town of Eaton are going to
be caught. It is outrageous how drivers speed right through the
town without slowing to the 35 mph speed limit, which might be
dropped to 30 mph. This is a town with children and pets, breakfast
and lunch patrons at the Eaton Village Store, stops at the Post
Office, and people out for a walk near the lake. Im sure
you have noticed that Peggy Wescott now has her metal barrier
back in front of her house on the corner. Her house has been
crashed into two times since she has lived there; the first time
the SUV was literally inside the house. The 2nd time was because
of the police chasing an alleged drug dealer. We live here and
want everyone to SLOW DOWN. Thanks to John Hartman for continuing
the fight that the Selectmen have been having with the state.
With Jeb Bradleys help, something is finally being done.
