Fundraiser will benefit restoration efforts
The Little School Restoration Committee invites the public to a presentation on the history of The Little School, barbecue and music in the Little School Community Park on Saturday, Aug. 20, 2016.
The presentation on the school’s history will begin at 4 p.m in the former grade two room at the school and will include many pictures and information about the school gleaned from more than forty years of Easton town reports. Admission is free.
The barbecue and music in the park will follow the historical presentation at 5 p.m. Music will be provided by Mark Shaw, an alumnus of The Little School. Hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, soda and water will be available for purchase. All proceeds will benefit the Little School Restoration Project. For more information about these events, please call Bryan at 551-5849.
Back to school basics

An elementary school open house will be held on Thursday, at 6:30 p.m. and Fall Fun Day will be Friday. Bus runs will remain the same as last year. Busses will begin picking up students at 7 a.m.
Happy Days Club
The Happy Days Senior Citizens’ Club met for a pizza lunch on July 28 with six members and three guests present.
Community calendar update
The Easton Kiwanis Club is unable to put together the Easton Community Birthday Calendar this year, so a group is being sought to take over the project. The calendar has been a good fundraiser, but requires a significant amount of work. If another organization would like to be responsible for the calendar, Kiwanis Club members are willing to help them get started. For more information, contact Keith or Esther at 488-6101.
