Wednesday morning Update

The Cavendish Connects website now includes much of what was included on this blog as well as a calendar of Cavendish events. The new blog, “The Dish,” includes the Cavendish Update as well as on-going information.

The Black River Health Center was damaged by the flood. The Center now has temporary quarters at their old location, which is the new dental office. There phone lines are out, so please call 802-875-1040.

Rite Aid prescriptions can be filled at the office in Springfield. Ludlow Pharmacy is open and operational. So is Singleton’s.

Water and power is returning to many areas, and many individuals are making an incredible contribution in clearing roads and keeping them open. For those on town water and sewage, a “boil water” notice is in effect. Please use the porta potties as much as possible as the sewage line hasn’t been reconnected and so it’s going directly into the Black River.

The National Guard hit the road at 7 am this morning. They are working on some of the hardest hit areas.

Black River Good Neighbor is open in Ludlow. Emergency food and clothing for those who need it. Hours are 10 to 4, with other hours by special arrangement. They are providing limited financial assistance. FMI

Lunch starts at noon at the school and dinner starts at 5:30 at the school.

Continue to check Facebook and blog throughout the day for updates.
