What a difference a day makes in our temperatures. I was not happy with the 80’s and 90’s, but Sunday was just perfect. That is the way I like my summer. How about you? Happy June to everyone.

The Eaton Village Store now has a take-out menu for breakfast and lunch. Until school is out, they will be open on Saturdays and Sundays from 8 until 4. Later on, they will be open more days. What can you get? All sorts of egg sandwiches with bacon, sausage or avocado, and sometimes smoked corned beef, too. Order a homemade muffin or an iced fritter. For drinks, how about fresh mint iced tea, hot or iced coffee or an awesome frappe? Lunch could be a Reuben with smoked corn beef, sauerkraut, and swiss and the house special sauce. Remember Kate’s wonderful chicken salad with cranberries and celery? Order it in a wrap. Don’t forget all the grilled cheeses (cheddar, swiss, American or pepper jack) with meat and tomato? Finish off with a chocolate chip cookie. Please stop by and use this easy service. EVS also continues with orders of groceries, beer, wine, snacks, etc. which you can order by phone - 447-2403. We love you, Eaton Village Store. (Stay tuned, more delicious choices will be made available.)

If you have been ordering packages from Amazon or wherever, please drop by the Eaton Post Office to get these and your other exciting mail (hey, sometimes it is exciting?). People still get real-life post cards and letters, as well as what we call “Business Bulk.” I don’t have to explain that, right? Have you seen the new Wild Orchid stamps? We should have more choices for you next week. We are still only open from 9 to 12, six days a week so that you can pick up your mail. Please wear a mask and have only one person in the store at a time. Many thanks from Carol and myself.

As you know, many of us have been ordering delectable dinners to go from Snowvillage Inn on weekends. I was lucky enough to get two meals, one on Friday as take-out, and one on Saturday, on the porch dining. You remember that, right? Breeze on the porch, glass on the table, drinks, real dinner plates, and a real waitress. Happy 55th Anniversary to Nancy and Bob Malvesta on May 30, and what a celebration we had together. Many thanks to Jen, Kevin, Josh and everyone who made such an evening possible. (Special thanks to Jen for the picture from 5 years ago on FB. We still miss Freddy.)

Did you hear horns tooting and people shouting “Happy Birthday” last Friday, May 29th near the Eaton Beach? Adorable Keira Barrett, turned the big 8 years old on Friday, and while her family stood on grass at the beach (with a pass, of course), lots of cars passed by beeping, holding signs, waving, shaking balloons, yelling and hanging out the windows to wish Keira a Happy 8th Birthday. In this “new-normal” we all need to remember the happy moments in life, like turning 8. You’re very loved, Keira.

Speaking of the Eaton Town Beach, most of you should already have your one beach pass (no car stickers this year) in the letter from the Eaton Selectmen. If you have a special problem, call the Eaton Town Hall at 447-2840 and have a conversation with Lianne. Everything will get worked out. Many thanks to Elaine (Lane) Weathers and Suzanne Raiche for their time and effort guarding our beach. There is a special turn-out for people who only want to put their boats in. Yes, the rules are a little tighter this year due to the COVID-19 virus, and there could be a time when no more people can safely use the beach. However, people don’t stay on the beach all day from 10 until 6, so just come back and they will accommodate you. Please be kind and respectful to Lane and Suzanne; they are doing their job.
