Thursday Mid Day 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.

Many people are coming in now as they are able to actually get here. However, everyone seems to believe that water and supplies should be saved for those who need it most. The fact is, we all need it and we have sufficient amounts for everyone. So please stop by the school, fire stations to pick up water. The "Cavendish Cupboard" is open for business at the school starting at 7 am and going through dinner.

We now have teams of people heading out into the outreaches of town bringing water and supplies. Please let us know if you need something or if you think someone in your area does.

The Proctorsville Post Office is back open. Depot street now has sufficient gravel in front of the bridge to stop people from driving over it.

The Cavendish Baptist Church will be holding a prayer service tonight at 7pm.

Many of you may have seen the helicopter land in Proctorsville. Yes, the Governor has come for a visit.

The Ludlow Medical Center says that they will be out of their location for about a month. They have temporary headquarters at the new Dental Office. Use their regular number to reach them. They will let you know if your provider is working out of another space.

People are looking tired today and a bit overwhelmed. That's too be expected. If we take it a day at a time we'll be okay.

Help Needed/Volunteers to Help: Please make your own connections. For new additions, or to let us know that your need is met or you are no longer able to volunteer at this time, please e-mail
