EATON column by Nancy E.

Anyone who knows me
knows that I do not like hot and/or humid weather. Thus these
past few weeks with a few rare exceptions, have been somewhat
unbearable. At the temp. of 75, I am uncomfortably warm. Okay,
so where did I go on Sunday, July 24th at 4:00 p.m.? To the Little
White Church (in Eaton) which is not air-conditioned. Why would
I make such a rash decision? Because the Akwaaba African Drum
and Dance Ensemble was playing and they were truly outstanding.
At least 80 people were completely thrilled with this wonderful
bands performance in spite of the heat. The Board Members
of the LWC did place fans around the church which helped, thank
you very much, and to quote the poster, This is one of
the best performances ever! Led by Master Percussionist,
Theo Martey, these five men and 1 woman not only played all sorts
of drums and other instruments, some of them did dances in front
of the stage with perfect timing, and they never stopped smiling,
laughing, and entertaining. Thank you again Little White Church
Board Members, and anyone involved in this fabulous idea. Id
also like to thank the Eastern Slope Dental office, and Dr. Allan
Mulandi for his offices generous donation for this ensemble.
( By the way he is my new dentist and I love everyone there!)
Go to the website for the LWC - www.littlewhitechurch.com for
further events at the church.
Of course, I always
forget to thank someone in my long list of thanks for the July
4th Picnic. The Eaton Village Store donated bags of ice, sodas,
iced teas, and beer to the crew putting up the tent the night
before. Many thanks, Rose and Bill. If you havent tried
out this oh- so- popular breakfast/lunch deli right here in town,
do yourselves a favor and get down there. Rose and Bill are super
friendly, and they happily serve fantastic food. Come on down!
If you want to see some
incredibly beautiful pictures of Eaton, check out the Town of
Eaton website. You not only can feast your eyes on the photos,
but enjoy a little town history as well.
The Snowvillage Inn
has been very busy recently with hosting two big weddings the
past two Friday nights. Dont forget their Oyster Orgy every
Thursday night, and make sure to come see the vivid paintings
now hanging at SVI for the rest of August by Margaret Dries.
I assume many of you
have been merrily enjoying the Eaton Town Beach, especially this
summer. Huge thanks to Suzanne Raiche and Lane Weathers for their
beach guard duties. Have you seen the two of them? Talk about
an unbelievable tan on these lovely ladies, while I on the other
hand remain ghostly white.
