Congratulations! Please come to the Crows Bakery on Depot st. to collect your prizes.

Thank you to the judges for their keen eyes and expertise!

The community voted for the photos to match each month of the calendar and the following ones were chosen, although many commented on the difficulty of the task, given the wonderful selection of photographs to choose from.
January – “Ice Cave” , Quarry Rd. Proctorsville, by Wendy Regier
February –“Mountain Mama and Her Foal” Stevens Rd. looking towards little Ascutney by Ginger Wilk
March – “from the Farmhouse”,Riford farm off 20 Mile Stream Rd. by Jackie Hubbard

November – “Birches on Tierney Rd” Cavendish by Svetlana Phillips
December – “Oh What Fun” South Reading Rd. Cavendish by Hans Schrag

“Owl in Owens Yard” from Cavendish is the cover photo by Winston Churchill. Last but not least, “The Ham”, a photo taken at the Johnson Farm on Hoey Road was voted Best in Show. Thanks to all who contributed to the contest. If you would like to pick up your photo it will be at Crows Bakery in July.

There was some confusion expressed this year about wether the photos were supposed to be just landscape or could they include people and animals. We have expressed our desire to see photos that show our surrounding landscape in it's great variety, but the photo may include in that landscape animals, historic buildings and persons. The less landscape a photo shows, the less likely it will be for it to represent any given month in the calendar.

The calendar is made possible by our local business sponsors and by the CCCA. Sponsors include - Castle Hill - Commercial Radio - Timothy Mott, Builder - Beacon Pest Control and Chimney Care - RDB Marketing - The Village Clipper - Cavendish Game Birds - Cavendish Canine Camp - Six Loose Ladies - Solar Store - Chittenden Bank - Raymond James - Singleton's - Mack Molding - Mary Ormrod's Feldenkrais - Crows Bakery

2. Sustainable Cavendish: Grid Tie Solar Group
Sustainable Cavendish, a committee of the Cavendish Community and Conservation Association (CCCA) is forming a group of Cavendish and Proctorsville homeowners who are interested in “Grid Tie” or “On-Grid” solar.

“Grid tie” solar is an easy way to take advantage of the sun, while reducing or even eliminating your electric bills. Solar panels collect the sun and convert it to DC energy. An inverter converts the DC power to AC power making it usable for the home and the grid. The utility meter records the amount of power you produce or use. Any power not used at home is fed to the grid. Called “net metering,” the power you generate during the summer, can offset bills in the winter.

There are many advantages to such a system:
• There are no batteries so maintenance is minimal to none after the installation
• The system qualifies for state and federal incentives (you pay a lot less)
• Flexible so you can go bigger if you need to
• Longevity: The system will last for 25+ years
• Clean air replaces the need for the burning of coal or “nukes”
• It increases the value of your home. For every $1,000 you save in energy costs, the value of your home is increased by $20,000

To make this grid tie solar as affordable as possible, Sustainable Cavendish is exploring a number of options including bulk purchasing and studying what other towns are doing. One example is Plymouth (New Hampshire) Area Renewable Energy Initiative. Not only do part time staff and volunteers tour members’ homes to do energy audits and provide them with ways to reduce energy consumption and increase efficiency, they have “energy raisers,” whereby they work collaboratively to install solar systems. You can learn more about the Plymouth program at

3. CHS Annual Plant Sale
If you ask anyone in Cavendish where their beautiful hostas, and other perennials come from, chances are good they will tell you at the annual Cavendish Historical Society plant sale. They might also add, “you wouldn’t believe how cheap they were!”

In 1979, Craig and Pat Rankin retired to Cavendish, VT from Long Island, NY and quickly became involved with the Historical Society. Like most small non-profits, money was an issue. Pat made a variety of crafts, including jams and jellies, while Craig tried refurbishing old furniture and other items he picked up from the “dump.” Being a landscape architect, Craig decided that he could probably raise a lot more money by transplanting plants then repairing a chair. Thus was born the Cavendish Historical Society’s Annual Plant Sale.

When inquiring when these sales started, there is a vague response, “sometime in the 80’s.” For well more than 20 years, people try to arrive as early as possible, some even arriving the night before, as Craig would be unloading hundreds of plants in front of the Museum building on Route 131.

With the death of Craig Rankin in 2008, the plant sale torch has been passed to his granddaughter Elizabeth Rankin and Pieter Van Schak.

As part of this year’s annual plant sale, a bench will be dedicated to Pat and Craig Rankin in the same area where the plant sale is held.

Part of the Cavendish Historical Society’s Old Home Day celebration on July 4, the plant sale begins at 8:30 am in front of the Museum. The dedication of the Rankin Bench will be at 9:30, with activities on the Cavendish Green getting underway around 10. This year, there will be a special games feature starting at 11 for kids and families. The Cavendish Fire Department will also be hosting a chicken BBQ. At noon, the Winston Churchill Retrospective opens at the Stone Church, also on Main Street and in close proximity to the Museum and Green. The Churchill Retrospective continues on Sunday July 5 from noon to 4. FMI: 226-7807 or

4. West Coast Swing Dance Coming to Proctorsville

5. Winston Churchill Retrospective
Considered by many of his peers as quite possibly the greatest American gun engraver of all time, Winston Churchill was born on a farm in Cavendish Vermont, where he still practices his artistry today. This farm was given to his ancestors for their service in the Revolutionary War.

With a love of wildlife, Churchill grew up artistically talented painting, drawing whittling their likeness in wood, and finally with a set of professional set of tools, carving

Joining the Navy did not diminish his interest in art. Churchill carved delicate and varied designs of ship insignia bas-relief into mahogany plaques, which were then cast in bronze. Fascinated with engraving, he sought out examples of work by other engravers and eventually found employment with Joe Fugger who was with Abercrombie and Fitch in New York. It was here that Churchill learned the fine European techniques, eventually leading to more opportunities to learn additional engraving styles and techniques from other masters.

One of Churchill’s specialties is his realistic treatment of animal and bird scenes. These serve to illustrate his obsession for accuracy and detail, which he is famous for.

In addition to his talent as an engraver, Churchill is also a sculpture and a photographer. On July 4 and 5, there will be a retrospective of Winston Churchill’s work, primarily featuring his photography, at the Old Stone Church in Cavendish VT. The show, sponsored by the Cavendish Historical Society, will be from noon to 4 pm both days.

The Churchill Retrospective is part of Cavendish Old Home Day, which begins at 8:30 on July 4 (Saturday) with the annual Plant sale in front of the Cavendish Historical Society Museum. Games, vendors and a chicken BBQ, take place on the Cavendish Green, a short walk from the Museum, starting at 10 am. The Stone Church is in close proximity to the Cavendish Green, also on Route 131, or Main Street.

Cavendish Update 6/12/09 H20/Events/Transfer St

1. Select Board Meeting
At the June 8 Select Board meeting, the following items were discussed:
A. Water
The new filtration system is starting to show water quality improvement in many areas of town. This is largely due to the reduction of iron in the water. It was anticipated that the iron levels would reduce quickly, which has been the case. The manganese (Mn), was projected to take 7-8 weeks for significant reduction. To date there has been a 20% reduction down to 1.7 mg/L. This is still well above the FDA standard of 0.05mg/L. The Health Advisory issued by the Vermont Department of Health remains in effect until levels are brought down to standard. The Health Advisory issued October 2006 states the following: “The Cavendish Public Water System has concentrations of manganese which exceed the Environmental Protection Agency and Vermont Department of Health lifetime Health Advisories of 0.3 mg/L. In 2005 and 2006, the levels of manganese in the Cavendish system were 2.5 mg/L and 2.1 mg/L, respectively.

Manganese is an essential element. However, most of the manganese needed on a daily basis comes from the food we eat. Long-term consumption of high concentrations of manganese in drinking water may cause adverse neurological health effects. Children and people with liver disease are more susceptible to the health effects of manganese. If you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor.”

Town wide flushing will take place later in June. Richard Svec, town manager, hopes to have the dates for the flushing, as well as recommendations for home pipe cleaning, by mid June.

B. Cavendish Historical Society
• When the pipes were being laid for the new water system, the electric line to the Stone Church in Cavendish was cut. The town has dug a trench for the new line. CVPS wants the meter off the pole, but because the Stone Church is an historic building, it can’t be placed there. There was discussion about refilling the trench until issues with CVPS and the electrician are finalized. The Historical Society would like this resolved as soon as possible as the Winston Churchill Retrospective will take place at the Stone Church the weekend of Old Home Day July 4-5 from noon to 4 pm.

• CHS explained how allocated town funding is used for building maintenance. Since 1973, CHS has received $2,000 per year for this purpose. Last year, the total building costs were $3,167. This year, the town voted to reduce the customary $2,000 to $1,800. To date, CHS has already spent close to $2,500 to make repairs on the Museum Building. The anticipated cost for the year is about $5,000. CHS pointed out that they do not have the funds to provide the upkeep on the many historic buildings and war memorials. The Select Board asked that CHS prepare a report on the needs and bring it back to them at a later date. CHS has agreed to do this and plans to discuss this with the Planning Commission, as the Town Plan recommends, “Provide management and protection guidelines to insure the conservation of cultural and historic resources.”

• CHS asked the Select Board to address the issue with the Proctor Cemetery, which is accessed from Main Street. While a survey has been done, which gives the town the right of way, the owner of the property keeps the access road blocked. Given that summer is a time when many people visit the town looking for genealogy information, and want to visit the graves of their ancestors, this is a problem that needs resolution sooner rather than later. Svec indicated that the current owner does not agree with the town survey about the access road. To that end, the Select Board has scheduled a site visit prior to their next meeting and plans to send a letter to the property owner asking them to demonstrate why they think the survey is incorrect. The owner will have 30 days to respond to this request.

C. Yard Sales and Junk Yard Ordinance
There is an increasing number of what appears to be permanent yard sales in the various towns. Svec indicated that the Town Office is receiving calls about this. There was a discussion of whether this is covered under the town’s Junk Yard Ordinance, which appears not to be the case.

2. Upcoming Events

It allows up to five people to get into the Echo Science Center at a highly reduced rate. Both passes are available free of charge at the library circulation desk as are thousands of books and hundreds of DVDs and VHS tapes.

4. Cavendish Community Fund Awards Three New Grants
The Cavendish Community Fund announced today the award of three grants for education, music and dance in Cavendish this summer. The first grant, to Fiber Arts in Vermont, Inc. will sponsor a class at the Six Loose Ladies fiber arts store on Depot Street in Proctorsville. The class will be taught by Alice Vogel of Alstead, NH and will challenge participants to redesign, repurpose and generally to wake up their imagination to create something new from something old. Students bring in gently used clothing and embellishments, contribute the articles to a pool of items, and in turn each student is allowed to select items from the pool to create a completely new and uniquely original garment. The class will be offered this summer free of charge at a time to be announced by Six Loose Ladies.

The second grant, to the Cavendish Fletcher Community Library, will help fund the annual summer concert series on the Proctorsville Green. This is the fourth year of the concerts, but the first year in which the Library sponsors them. The concerts will be held on consecutive Wednesday evenings beginning July 15th. Exact times and performing artists will be publicized in the local press.

The third grant will enable Ashley Hensel-Browning and Rebecca Salem to explore choreography and yoga in a summer session with Cavendish Children at no cost to their families. Classes will focus on encouraging children to educate themselves exploring dance and choreography as art forms and participating in active art making. A Friday family day will allow students to incorporate their families into their learning. Hensel-Browning and Salem have both worked as teachers in their fields for several years, with studios in Springfield and Chester respectively. Hensel-Browning recently completed teaching a series of workshops on dance and choreography at the Cavendish Town Elementary School. FMI: Barbara Dickey at (802) 226-7187.

5. Healthy Choices Quilt
During the school year 2002-03, the CTES students all participated in creating a quilt where they drew pictures on 12"x12" squares of fabric showing what they thought were healthy choices for their lives. They created beautiful works depicting them dancing, playing sports, and eating healthy. Under the leadership of Doris Eddy, Ann Stewart, and Paulette Martel, volunteers spent several nights sewing the quilt together until there was one huge quilt representing over 100 CTES students versions of healthy choices.

The students who are now high school seniors were then in the 6th grade and the present 6th graders were then in kindergarten. Since the students who are represented on the quilt will all soon be gone from CTES and the quilt just sits in a closet, we decided to give it new life. The PTO will sell the individual squares for $20 each and use the money to help with the playground improvements. To receive your child’s quilt square ( sometime this summer) please contact Martha Mott at 226-7092 or

6. Transfer Station Beautification
Norma is beautifying the Transfer Station and is looking for donations of flowers. She also has given new life to some old birdhouses and birdfeeders and would appreciate donations of birdseed. Please take items to Norma or Bill at the transfer station during their regular hours of operation.
