You might be interested in the 2017 Sheriff Traffic Patrol Summary Sheet. The annual total so far is 321 stops (April-57, May-65, June-38, July-38, August-61, and September-62.

PLEASE slow down when you head through town. We have children, animals, people crossing the road to go to the Eaton Village Store to eat, get groceries, or pick up their mail. It should not be dangerous to cross the road! We are a small village with people who like to walk down to the beach to enjoy the foliage or picnic at the Grove. Please show consideration.

The Selectmen of Eaton declared October 20, 21, 22 as Law Enforcement/First Responder Appreciation Days at the Carroll County Fish and Game Club in Madison, NH. I would like to thank the Selectmen for this, because every single day, we should be appreciating the police, firemen, EMT’s and first responders for the great job they are doing. We need to thank them all for their dedication and service to our communities. THANK YOU!

On Sunday, November 19, the South Eaton Meeting House will hold its Thanksgiving Service at 3 p.m. The guest speaker will be William Abbott, the Executive Director of the Upper Saco Valley Land Trust. “This Land we call Home.” The South Eaton Meeting House is at the corner of Towle Hill Road and Burnham Road in South Eaton. Take Horseleg Hill Road off Rte. 153, just south of Purity Spring Resort. To find out more information, you may e-mail them at

I hope many of you were able to experience the most exciting Halloween Town at Camp Tohkomeupog at Purity Spring Resort. By far, it is the most amazing event where hundreds of dressed up people, young and old, walk all around the camp’s cabins and up the East Madison Road to get totally scared by all the ghouls, monsters, grim reapers, and ghosts everywhere they look. For a few hours the place is packed, and then everything and everyone goes away. Absolutely incredible. What a great job.
