EATON — I just attended an open house at Little Field Farm down Route 153 in Eaton. We could have hamburgers or spicy sausage with peppers and onions, a pasta salad and some cheese hors d’oeuvres. Marylou and Peter Dow were cooking, aided by Sarah Davis and Jake Davis and Colton Dow. Everything was delicious.
Attention: Little Field Farm is not closing in the fall and will stay open until the holiday season. You can order their beef and sausage, buy all sorts of vegetables (corn, lettuce, cauliflower, broccoli, tomatoes, etc.), plus homemade croissants (plain, almond and chocolate), and home-baked bread and an assortment of cookies. You’ve got to come down to try them out soon. Hours of operation: Thursday and Friday (noon-6 p.m.), Saturday (10 a.m.-6 p.m.) and Sunday (10 a.m.-5 p.m.). Hey, Eatonites — it is right down the road! Close to Thanksgiving, they will also be offering homemade pies to order.
Well, I guess we can say that summer has flown by because it is now after Labor Day. I, for one, am loving the cooler weather and getting ready for my favorite season, fall. Fryeburg Fair is coming soon, and colored leaves, brisk winds, pumpkins, squash, mums and hay bales. Also, since school is back in session, please be very careful of the kids walking to their schools and slow down. (I really hope the traffic on Route 153 north will dissipate soon; anyone else agree?)
One of our fabulous beach guards at the Eaton Beach, Elaine Weathers, told me recently that a man had lost an item not too long ago. This item has indeed been found, so please contact Lianne Boelzner at the Eaton Town Hall (603-447-2840) sometime soon to describe it and get it back.
I would like to extend my most sincere condolences to Kate, Justin, Poppy, and Ruby Armenio, and to Kate’s mom, Susan Farrell Klomp of Silver Lake, on the loss of Susan’s husband of 30 years, Peter A. Klomp, Jr. When I read his obituary in the CDS, I was so impressed by the writing (thank you, Kate) and the myriad of accomplishments Peter had achieved in his long life, I wish I had known him much longer. I express my sadness to all his other relatives and his legions of friends from all over. We have lost quite a dedicated and learned man.
Snowvillage Inn and Max’s Restaurant and Pub are pleased to welcome the artwork of Rosemary Gerbutavich for the months of September and October. The opening reception for the artist is on Wednesday, Sept. 4 from 4-6 p.m. at the inn. This event is free and open to the public. An artisan cheese and cracker plate will be provided by the artist, and beverages will available for purchase.
Rosemary has been a lover of the visual arts from childhood, and only since her retirement from a long and rewarding nursing career has she been able to pursue her passion for watercolor in which she thrives. She is best known for her technique of extending her art images over the boundaries of the paper’s edge while continuing and completing the image onto the frame’s mat. Rosemary’s approach has been described as “bright, bold colors with a ‘whimsical expression,’ which reflects her personality in both life and in art.”
Rosemary says: “Inspiration for me can pop up at anytime or any place. I am not confined to one subject matter and have a preference for various themes. My work is both a challenge and a passion and my search is for images to express their moods where words fail.” She is a juried member of MWVAA and a gallery member of the Ellis River Art Gallery. She lives and works from her studio in Madison. She received Best Visual Artist 2017 in The Conway Daily Sun’s 100 Best of 2017. The Mt. Washington Valley Arts Association awarded her first place in 2-D Art at the 2016 Art in the Park.
“We are delighted to have Rosemary’s work in Max’s Gallery and the inn. Her whimsical art and bright, bold colors fit right in,” said Jen Kovach, owner/innkeeper at the Snowvillage Inn.
Have you signed up yet for the New England Tenors, who are performing at the Inn at Crystal Lake on Friday, Sept. 20? I hope so, because this concert cannot be missed, and the Inn at Crystal Lake and the Palmer House Pub will close Monday, Sept. 3, and reopen Wednesday, Sept. 11. So sorry it won’t be open this following week and a half, but Bobby and Tim very much need to get out of town and have a relaxing vacation.
The New England Tenors have performed here for quite a few years and they are an exceptional group. The inn will start seating at 6:30 p.m.; the concert will begin at 7 p.m. A delicious four-course meal will accompany the performance, and the cost is still $65 per person, with drinks, tax and tip not included.
