Okay everyone, it is time to clean out your attics, garages and houses, and save your spring cleaning goodies for the Little White Church’s July Yard Sale on Saturday and Sunday, July 13 and 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. What you don’t use every day might be the perfect item for someone else. The drop-off for items for sale is July 11 and 12 from 1 to 6 p.m. All of the sale’s proceeds will go toward the considerable costs of rebuilding the outside of the church steeple, which has always required periodic maintenance, but this last winter sustained considerable water damage on the north side. Fortunately, the water damage did not affect the sanctuary ceiling like it did 12 years ago. A local contractor, Thomas Costello, and his crew will begin work on the steeple very shortly.

This yard sale is part of a larger fund-raising project that will include a public appeal which has already begun, but if people want to donate now, please visit our website and donate online or mail donations to the Little White Church, P.O. Box 31, Eaton, NH 03832. Donations are tax deductible. The LWC is non-denominational, non-profit, and non-political where numerous services, weddings, memorials, concerts and fun community activities occur throughout the year. Please support this beautiful edifice in our valley.

A Mass of Christian Burial for Elaine A. Hennigan (nee Corcoran), will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, June 21, 2019 at Our Lady of the Mountains Roman Catholic Church on Rte. 16 in North Conway, NH. Immediately following the Mass, all are invited to a reception at the Shannon Door Restaurant in Jackson, NH, located at the junction of Rte. 16 and 16A, north of the village loop. Almost everyone in this town knew Elaine, her husband Paul, and their son Paul, Jr., his wife Susie, and daughter Grace. Elaine had a big influence in our town, working on so many town projects, walking along cleaning up our roads, selling eggs, contributing much of her time (while teaching school for 43 years), to help our village grow, prosper and become a lovely and friendly place to live. Her positive attitude and happy disposition will never be forgotten by her family and many friends. We will really miss you, Elaine. Love to her family.

Please stop in to the Conway Public Library during the months of June and July to see Peter Blue’s Clothesline Show, with intricate drawings and artwork strung up together, in his words “piggly, wiggly, bird, bath, pie, cat, hips, fish, lips, poke you in the eye.” Now if that doesn’t make you curious, you must go see this unique exhibit as soon as possible. I can’t wait to see it again this year, Peter.

Max’s Restaurant and Pub at the Snowvillage Inn in Eaton has a lot of exciting news to share. Max’s is open for dinner Wednesday through Saturday. Drinks at 4:30 p.m. on the lovely porch, dinner starting at 5 p.m. Wednesday is Locals’ Night - Thursday is Oyster Night (two bucks a shuck) - Fridays at Five ($5 drinks and appetizers from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m.) Kevin and Jen want to thank all of you for supporting a local business.

Max’s Restaurant and Pub at the Snowvillage Inn is celebrating White Mountains Pride Week with an Equality Happy Hour. This Pride Week event runs Wednesday, June 19 through Saturday, June 22 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. There will be $5 drink specials on the porch and in the pub. Please call 447-2818 soon for a dinner reservation. Jen and Kevin are looking forward to welcoming folks to this very special event.

An exciting concert of Classical Music will take place at the Little White Church in Eaton on Friday, June 28 at 7 p.m., featuring Natalie Shevchuk, a native of Ukraine and former resident of North Conway, who was the Music Director at the Lutheran Church of the Nativity and a 1993 winner of the Rachmaninoff piano competition in Kiev. Natalie will perform with Stephen Poppel, a clarinetist and founder of the Chatham Ensemble, a classical woodwind trio. They will play the music of Beethoven, Shubert, Poulenc, and others. Don’t miss hearing these first-class performers! $25 at the door. Make sure to jot that date down now on your calendars, June 28, and plan to be part of the audience for this fabulous concert.

I would like to commend Snowvillage Inn which was recently featured in the June issue of New York Lifestyles Magazine Travel section featuring ”Summer in the Granite State.” Writer Laurie Baine Wilson describes the Snowvillage Inn: “This sought-out off-the-beaten-path inn in Eaton Center, NH, with mountain range views, is offering guided “Outdoor Adventures for Beginners” packages this summer, perfect for city slickers. Cocktails on the porch and dinners in Max’s Restaurant and Pub, too.” This publication with a circulation of 408,622 copies, won the 2013 award for Magazine of the Year.

Summer is finally upon us (except for the rainy days and cool temps?), and that means the Eaton Town Beach is officially open. If you haven’t gotten your beach passes yet, stop by the Town Hall and see Lianne this week. Permanent residents will get one pass and one sticker. You may also send a sase envelope to the Town Hall, P. O. Box 88, Eaton, NH 03832 and do it by mail. The Town Hall is open almost every day, so please don’t use that as an excuse as to why you don’t have your pass. The Beach Guards work hard to make sure Eaton residents and their guests can use the beach. Let’s all enjoy our beautiful Crystal Lake.

Speaking of summer, the July 4th Barbecue/Picnic will be taking place on the Fourth (Thursday) as always, starting at noon. We will need some strong people at the Beach on Wednesday, July 3 at 5:00 p.m. to put up the tent; people to help set up tables on July 4, at 10:30 a.m.; and again on Friday, July 5 at 10:30 a.m. to take down the tent. It will then be taken to the Little White Church for the Yard Sale on July 13th and 14th. We’re always on the look-out for younger guys or gals to help with the tent. Please offer to help. While I have guys cooking hamburgers and hot dogs, I will need families/townspeople to bring a dish to share with everyone: an hors d’oeuvre, a salad, a dessert, or a side dish. I will need 2 people to sell raffle tickets on the 4th. If you want to sample everything, my advice would be to come between noon and 1:00. My next column will be Tuesday, July 2nd. Have a great summer.
