Master Sgt. Shawn Stocker died suddenly, Sept. 21 while part of the recovery effort in Cavendish. He had close ties to the area. Part of the Air Guard, many of us had come to know Sgt. Stocker.
On Friday, Oct. 7, the first event that marks the 250th Celebration weekend, is a community dance at the Cavendish School starting at 7 pm. This will be a benefit for the Stocker family. If you can not attend the dance, but wish to make a donation, you can drop it off at the Cavendish Historical Society Museum on Sunday, Oct. 2 from 2-4pm, send it with someone who is attending the dance or contact Margo 226-7807 or firstname.lastname@example.org
While we will have cards for people to sign at the dance, you can also include your own card. If you prefer, gas cards and gift cards from Hannafords or Price Chopper would also be appreciated.
The Stocker Family would also like copies of any photographs taken while he was working here.
Sgt. Stocker was there for us. It's our turn to be there for his family.
