Today is Voting Day
and everyone must get out to VOTE. It is our privilege and right
to be able to vote the way we want in this country, and you all
need to exercise that right today at the Eaton Town Hall from
11:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. You must bring your license or an
ID to vote. Please bring along some money to buy the excellent
baked goods provided by our wonderful Eaton bakers. Thank you
to all of them and to everyone who has to be at our Town Hall
all day long.
The Snowvillage Inns
Art Over Harvest Dinners last weekend at Maxs Restaurant
were beyond belief. The ambience was lovely, the dining room
was filled with laughter, and we enjoyed the most delicious food
ever. Thanks to Kevin and Jen, to the waitstaff (especially my
girl Jenny), and to Chef Charlie and his friend for providing
five fabulous courses. (I will never eat again, I think.) The
Snowvillage Inn will be serving a dynamite Thanksgiving dinner
on November 22. Please go to their website, look everything over,
and make your reservations at 447-2818.
50th Birthday Bash on October 18th at the Inn at Crystal Lakes
second Opera Dinner was a huge success. Tim, you were incredibly
good, and it was such a delight to hear you singing with your
friend Melissa Williams to the tunes perfectly played by Logan
Brown. Thanks to Bobby and the kitchen staff for an outstanding
meal and to the wait staff Robin, Aimee, Jade and Lily, who did
a super job providing our meals.

Northern New England Journey magazine? In the November/December

Everyone knows and loves
Rev. Mary Edes, who has been such an inspiration to this valley
with her singing, her gentleness, her empathy, and her humor.
Mary will lead the South Eaton Meeting Houses annual Thanksgiving
service to be held the Sunday, November 18th at 3:00 p.m. We
will all meet at this historic building to sing familiar hymns
and listen to the words of Rev. Mary. Her sermon is titled At
This Table: In the midst of life with all its complexities and
beauty, we will gather together and remember what holds us in
community. Ray Stineford, organist, will accompany our
singing on the beautiful reed organ.
The Reverend Mary Edes
moved to Silver Lake in 2003, when she accepted a call to serve
the UUFES as their minister - a role she enjoyed for nearly twelve
years. Prior to entering the Unitarian Universalist ministry,
she spent many years in the NH Seacoast, where she was active
in the theater and music community, and served as Director of
Music at South Church UU, in Portsmouth. Currently, she leads
the Silver Lake Singers for Hospice and Healing and serves as
a community minister and hospice chaplain, conducting weddings,
child dedications, celebrations of life, and reading in various
congregations throughout New England.
The South Eaton Meeting
House is located at 402 Burnham Road, at the corner of Towle
Hill Road, South Eaton. Take Horseleg Hill road off Rt. 153 just
south of Purity Spring Resort, East Madison, near the blinking
yellow light. For more information, go to southeatonmeetinghouse.com

and finding a huge array of delicious hors doeuvres, turkey
chili, spicy meatballs and the most amazing cake! Many thanks,
Jeanne and John, for such a fun time. Congratulations to Roy
