EATON column by Nancy E. Williams 3/19/19 447-56 35


Hey, did you miss me? I’m sure Carol did a wonderful job while I was down in Florida for 6 days visiting very special friends from long ago, like high school??? I’m sorry to have missed Town Meeting, probably my only one, and yes, I would have voted for the Rec. Center. Sorry, people. Thanks to all the bakers for their famous baked goods and congratulations to all the winners. I hope everyone voted, because it is our right and privilege in the USA.

The Eaton Community Circle will be taking their booklet “Welcome to Eaton” (a booklet given out to those who are new to Eaton) to the printers in April for its second printing. Last call for those who have businesses here in Eaton to advertise for free. If you provide a service, sell a product, make a craft, etc., this is the perfect way to let those newcomers know what is available right here in Eaton. We need the name of the business, phone number, owner’s name, e-mail, and a brief description of your business. You can e-mail Jeanne Hartman at no later than April 1st. Please get this out to her soon. It is a great way for new people in Eaton to know the talented people (we have artists, carpenters, jewelry makers, an old-book binder for a few) that live in this little town. Some of you newcomers might want to add your business listing, too.

Snowvillage Inn and Max’s Restaurant and Pub is pleased to welcome the art of Aurora Winkler in the gallery for the months of March and April Thanks to all who came out for the opening reception last Thursday, March 14. “We are delighted to have Aurora’s work in the Gallery here at the Inn. Her vibrant colors and sense of movement light up her work as well as our Inn,” says Jen Kovach, Owner/Innkeeper at the Snowvillage Inn in Eaton. Aurora Winkler lives and works in western Maine. She received a BFA from Sierra Nevada College on Lake Tahoe in Nevada. Her work has been shown at the Portland Art Gallery in Portland, Maine; Barba Contemporary Art in Palm Springs, California; The Jackson Art Gallery and Studio in Jackson, New Hampshire; Harvest Gold Gallery in Lovell, Maine; and online with Oeuvre Fine art as well as The UGallery. Her website is for more information. Come on up and view her vivid colors and have a delicious meal as well.

The Inn at Crystal Lake and Palmer House Pub in Eaton has more movies to add to their Wednesday Movie Nights. This week, March 20th is “The Favourite,” (Best Actress); on 3/27, is “Bohemian Rhapsody,” (Best Actor); and on 4/3 is “Green Book” (Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor). In my opinion, everyone should see “Green Book.” Other than staring at Viggo Mortensen (sorry, I love Viggo), the acting is superb and the story is powerful about the way of life in the South in the ‘60s.

The next Opera Dinner will be held on Friday, April 19, The Art of Auditioning. What happens at an opera audition? With the help of four young singers, we’ll walk you through the process on how a singer decides what to sing, and how the audition panel chooses what they want to hear. This will the the fourth time we have done this type of program and it is always exciting to hear the “Opera Stars of Tomorrow!” $65 per person includes a four-course dinner by Chef/Innkeeper, Bobby Barker (price does not include alcohol, tax or gratuity.) Dinners start at 6:30 p.m., performances begin at 7:00, and are hosted by Tim Ostendorf - innkeeper, bartender and classically trained singer. After this Opera Dinner, there is only one more in May. Get out and celebrate spring (I think).

It is maple syrup time. This weekend is the 24th Annual NH maple Syrup Weekend and Maine Maple Sunday. What better way to celebrate than with maple syrup sweetened chocolate? Local chocolatier and wellness consultant Beth Nagle Griffin will be selling her handcrafted organic chocolate as part of the festivities at Sap Hound Maple Company in Brownfield, ME on Saturday, March 23 and Sunday, March 24 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Beth sweetens her chocolate using Sap Hounds organic pure maple syrup for smooth, flavorful and nutritious chocolate. There’s nothing like it. The Sap Hound Maple Company is located at 414 Center Conway Road in Brownfield, ME. This sweet, seasonal community event is a great way to celebrate spring.
