An extremely special
program featuring Maestro George Wiese and friends will be held
on the evening of August 22 at 6:00 p.m. at the South Eaton Meetinghouse.
George and George team up again. In 1890, George
Woods of Boston, MA, built the beautiful reed organ which now
resides in the South Eaton Meetinghouse, and on this special
Tuesday evening, George Wiese returns to Eaton to play it. Wise
has been excited to return to the Meetinghouse ever since playing
the inaugural recital of the rebuild Woods & Co. reed organ
in 2015. This summers program will feature a wide array
of music created and adapted for reed organ. This skilled graduate
of the Juilliard School of Music will entertain and delight you
with the history and nuances of this fine instrument. Suggest
donation is $10. After Purity Spring Resort going south on Rte
153, turn on Horseleg Hill Road and follow to the corner of Towle
Hill and Burnham Roads.
Max's Restaurant &
Pub at the Snowvillage Inn has some returning favorite entrees
for Locals Night on Tuesday, August 15. Be sure to call

We would all like to
welcome back Eddie Shackford, who arrived home last week. Since
he eats breakfast and lunch at EVS, we really missed seeing him.
Welcome home, Eddie!
The Eaton Community
Circle summer party will be held Tuesday, August 15, at 5:00
p.m. at the Eaton Town Beach. Bring your own drinks and a pot
luck dish to share.
We still need a Deputy
Town Clerk/Tax Collector for the Town of Eaton, as Jeanne Hartman
is retiring. Please consider helping out the town in this position.
Marnie Cobbs would like
to inform everyone that the service for her dad, Jim Cobbs, will
be at The Little White Church on Saturday, August 26, at 11:00
a.m., followed by a reception downstairs. Jim and Marty have
so many good fiends here in town who will want to join in a celebration
of his life up here in Eaton.
There are still lots
of blueberries to pick at Sorensen's BerryKnoll. Some of them
are getting soft and dropping off, but there should be another
week to gather berries for your freezer to enjoy all winter long.
