Do you believe that
it is the last week of June? Where has the time gone? The weather
has been quite good; I wish it was like this all summer. Goodbye
to the black flies and good riddance. Now if the mosquitoes would
Many thanks to John
Hartman for getting and putting up the banner announcing our
famous July 4th BBQ/picnic on Tuesday, July 4th. We will have
the plates, napkins (both sizes of each), forks, spoons and knives,
the hamburgers, veggie burgers, and hot dogs, the rolls, the
onions, ketchup, relish and mustard all there for you and your
family and friends. Please bring along a favorite recipe for
beans, summer salads, hors doeuvres, and of course, last
but definitely not least, fabulous desserts. Bring your own beverage,
but remember no glass is allowed on the beach. We will have bins
for trash and other bins for plastic and aluminum (together),
so the clean-up will be easy. The renowned 50/50 raffle will
naturally be taking place. I already have Southern Quint to pull
one of the winning tickets. I need one more person to sell raffle
This is the day to celebrate
this grand country of ours with all your neighbors and friends.
It is the Big 4th! The picnic will begin around noontime. The
Eaton Community Circle will be helping me set the picnic tables
and put out the plates and silverware (well, you know what I
mean). Bring your bathing suits and frolic in our beautiful Crystal
Lake. How about some frisbees or some fun games? Bring your kids,
of course, but no animals allowed. On Monday, July 3, I will
need people to set up the tent and set out the picnic tables.
At 5:00 we can do that and it is over by 6:00. The more people,
the quicker it goes. How about some young blood? Then on Wednesday,
the tent must come down. Say around noon? I hope to see everyone
in town joining together to have a great meal and reminisce.
See YOU there.

After two months the Inn at Crystal Lakes new Chef, Louis
Belvedere, has settled in nicely. He grew up in Florence, Italy,
and trained in Paris, so definitely give his menu a try. The
risotto (with or without lobster) is delicious.
Betsy and Don Gemmecke
completed their walk on the Cost to Coast Trail and walked across
Northern England. They clocked in 245 miles of walking (yes,
you did read that right, 245 miles) and wanted to say they so
appreciated all the support people gave to their effort. They
also wanted to give a big thank you to those who donated to the
Open Medicine Foundation in tribute to their daughter, who has
myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS).

Way to go, Betsy and Don - we are in awe.
