The Little White Church has just launched a GoFundMe page to raise money for the rebuilding of our steeple. Check it out and share with everybody. Go to gofundme.com/help-us-rebuild-our-steeple. This project needs everyone’s help. If you got married in the Little White Church, attended a concert, came to the Christmas Eve service, had a fundraiser or a memorial service in our beautiful church, help us raise this money to restore our lovely steeple. The Little White Chuch has been called the very soul of our special town. You can also donate directly from our website littlewhitechurch.com or mail in a donation to Little White Church, P.O. Box 31, Eaton, NH 03832.
The BerryKnoll blueberries are now ready. Last weekend’s heat hastened the ripening process. Blueberries are still $4.25 a quart. All of the currants, black, red, champagne and white, are ready as well as the gooseberries. New gorgeous daylilies bloom every day. As long as there is enough daylight to see the berries, you are welcome to be here, morning and evening, but do bring something to discourage the deer flies if you can. Linda and Dave Sorensen invite you down to BerryKnoll at 67 Old Portland Road, off the Brownfield Road in Eaton.
If you are interested in fresh produce, baked goods and meat items, drive down to Little Field Farm Stand on Route 153, 2 miles south of Eaton Center on your right. This wonderful farm stand has a little bit of everything: fresh bread and croissants; tons of fresh vegetables such as cherry tomatoes, eggplant, beans, corn, spaghetti sauce, jams, ground beef, pork sausage and cutlets. They are open on Fridays from noon to 6 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
You really missed a delicious meal if you didn’t attend the South Eaton Meeting House fair and luncheon last Saturday. For meat items, you had at least seven choices of delicious meals, followed by at least 12 varieties of salads to choose from. If you were still hungry, you could check out the fabulous desserts at the dessert table, truly delectable. You could buy raffle tickets for some great items, pour through items at the white elephant table, peruse the interesting books inside the meeting house, and get some wonderful bargains on dishes and glasses. This is my favorite little fair, and I hardly ever miss it. Plan on going next year, on Saturday, right after the Freedom Old Home Week Parade. You will not be disappointed.
Make sure to enjoy our lovely Crystal Lake in town, very refreshing during some of these hot summer days. We are lucky to live in such a beautiful place, surrounded by forests and fields.
Many of us are headed down on Aug. 4 to hear Alana MacDonald and her new band perform at the Tamworth Farmstand. After Devonsquare amicably parted ways after 40 years of music, MacDonald wasn’t finished with music. I will keep you informed of other concerts so you can follow her, too. Love you, dear friend.
Congratulations to Carol Noonan and Jeff Flagg on celebrating the 13th anniversary of their successful music venture, the Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield, Maine. The audience thrived on the music from Carol and her Stone Mountain Boys, with a special guest appearance of Chris Smither to add to the spectacular event. We love you, Stone Mountain, and all of the fantastic staff there. Beautiful, as Fred would have said.
