3. Second Cavendish Concert on the Green July 14th
The Cavendish Community and Conservation Association wants to remind everyone that the annual summer music series continues on Wednesday, July 14th at 6:00 p.m. on the Proctorsville Green with the “Band Who Must Not Be Named!” (featuring members of Satin and Steel).

You’ll hear rock, funk, blues, soul and swing that will have you dancing in the grass. If you like small bands that sound big and you like acoustic music, you will enjoy this evening of talent from polished Vermont musicians.

This will be the second of six concerts that are free and open to the public and are held again this year on Wednesday nights in July and August. Everyone is encouraged to join their friends and neighbors in front of the gazebo on the green. It’s a fun way to enjoy the summer weather and either reconnect with old friends or make new ones. Bring a comfortable chair, a blanket, maybe a picnic, or just kick back and relax on the grass.

As always, the concerts will be held rain or shine, and will move to the Cavendish town elementary school in case of inclement weather. FMI: Sharon Huntley at 226-8030.

4. Fletcher Farms Artist of the Month at the Cavendish Library

Some of the classes represented here include: Tatting II, Painted Floor Cloths, Landscape Weaving - Off Loom, Mosaics: Trash to Treasure, Beginning Punch Needle Rug Hooking, Stained Glass Creations Using Old Window Frames, Primitive Folk Art Villages, and Quilting.

The Fletcher Farm School, Vermont’s oldest residential arts and crafts school, has been in operation for 63 years at the Fletcher Farm campus on Route 103 in Ludlow, VT. It is run by the Society of Vermont Artists and Craftsmen and the school campus is rented from the Fletcher Farm Foundation. Membership in Society of Vermont Artists and Craftsmen is open to all artists, crafts people and art supporters.

The beautiful artwork in this exhibit is a small window into the creative activities at the Fletcher Farm School for the Arts and Crafts. Visitors are welcome to visit classes at the school to see artwork in progress.

Brand new this year is a parenting class for adults that will take place while children are involved in their activities. Anne Burge, Executive Director of the Pregnancy Center of the Upper Valley, will be teaching the parenting seminar. Ms. Burge explains, “We remain committed to promoting sound sexual health practices by helping young adults develop relationship building skills that will benefit all areas of their lives. An important piece of that education is empowering parents to embrace their role as their children’s primary sexual health educator. Our Seminar, Intimacy & Sexual Expression Education (ISEE) for Parents, is the first step in equipping parents with the information and skills necessary to guide their children in our sexualized culture.” A healthy meal will be provided for all children and adults. This seminar is open to all parents, even if their children are not attending VBS. ISEE is scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, July 20-22.
