EATON column by Nancy E. Williams 4/17/18 447-5635


I trust you will find that life has been restored to the Eaton Village Store this week as the Armenios have recently returned from a fabulous week in Mexico. I’m so glad they had such a great time. We enjoyed the muffins and coffee that they left for everyone. (Thanks to Carol and Judy for helping out at the Post Office last week.)

Huge Birthday Wishes are sent out to Laura Kennedy, formerly of Eaton and now of Mineral Springs. Laura will be 100 years old on Wednesday, April 18. She can’t quite believe it herself, but we wish her the best on this wondrous day. Laura is the mother of Linda Sorensen. She and her husband Dave Sorensen live on the Old Portland Road, and provide us all with the opportunity to pick great blueberries in the summer. Have a fabulous birthday, Laura!

If you are from Eaton and are applying for the Henney Scholarship to further your education, the deadline is this week, on Thursday, April 19th. I have a few copies at the Eaton Post Office, or you can go on line to the Eaton website, or get one at the Guidance Office at Kennett High School. We are very strict about this deadline, so please take a few moments now to send yours in.

Max’s Restaurant and Pub at the Snowvillage Inn offers special entrees for this Tuesday’s Locals’ Night that will be difficult to choose from: Half Rack of New Zealand Lamb with twice-baked potato; Anna’s Tortolloni filled with ricotta, porcini mushrooms in a butter sauce, flavored with sage and orange zest; Tuckerman Alt Beer Battered Haddock with Pete’s extra secret special remoulade and crispy hand cut fries; and Mushroom Salad with Crab Cakes over Bibb lettuce with a porcini vinaigrette topped with pine nuts and shaved Grafton cheddar cheese.

There are a few spots available for this coming Saturday’s (April 21) Max’s Spring Fling Supper Club at the Snowvillage Inn.

Watch It Wednesday Movie Nights continue this week in the Inn at Crystal Lake’s Palmer House Pub with “Phantom Thread.” This drama stars Daniel Day-Lewis in his last movie role (he retired from acting after shooting this film), and is about a fashion designer (Day-Lewis) that falls in love with one of his models. The movie was nominated for six Academy Awards and won for Best Costume Design. Movie stars at 7 p.m. There is no admission or minimum order required, but reservations are recommended.

The Inn at Crystal Lake’s next Opera Dinner will be Friday, May 4th with a visit from four young students of Boston University’s School of Music. Innkeeper Tim Ostendorf (a B.U. alum) will walk the audience through the audition process for a young singer - a sort of classical music version of “American Idol.” Come see the Opera Stars of Tomorrow; cost is $60 per person and includes a four-course dinner prepared by chef/owner Bobby Barker. Call the Inn for reservations or more information at 447-2120.

Earth Day Fun for Teens: come one, come all and give back to the earth that gives to you every day. Join the Carroll County 4-H Youth Leadership Team (YLT) on Sunday, April 22 from 1 to 4 p.m. at 196 Huntress Bridge Road in Effingham, NH. YLT is partnering with the local non-profit, Green Mountain Conservation Group, for a community service project. There will be community clean up, cabbage care, fantastic food, and unfathomable fun. Teens are encouraged to put down their phones and pick up some trash for one hour. There will be a fun game of manhunt following the clean-up. For more information, contact Karen Deighan, at 539-3551 or e-mail

Again this year, the Eaton Conservation Commission has funds available to pay part of the cost for Eaton children between the ages of 4 and 16 to attend Tin Mountain Conservation Center summer camps. If you are interested in taking advantage of this offer, please contact Judy Fowler at 447-5635 before May 11th.

It may seem early but save this date: All are welcome to a 20 minute presentation at Town Hall on Monday, May 14th at 7 p.m. at the Eaton Conservation Commission meeting. The Upper Saco Valley Land Trust has completed a Drinking Water Protection study including Eaton, and will share their findings and suggestions for the future. You are always welcome to come to an ECC meeting and see what we are up to (2nd Monday in the month at 7 p.m.)

The Eaton Community Circle will be meeting this Wednesday, April 18, at noon at Janet Bridgham’s house. She will be providing soup, so please bring along a sandwich.
