July 2 is Cavendish Old Home Day, which will be a special event as it kicks off the town’s celebration of its 250th anniversary. Free booth space on the Cavendish Green is available to residents, second homeowners, local businesses and those organizations that serve the town. If you are interested in booth space, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 802-226-7807. We do have a special area for children and invite budding craftsmen and artists.
This year, in addition to the annual plant sale in front of the Museum, the Cavendish Historical Society CHS) will have on display at the Museum, an historic timeline of Cavendish’s history. Starting with the opening of the Cavendish Green activities at 9:30, there will be a silent auction until 12:45. At 1 pm there will be a live auction. Both of these events benefit CHS.
Many vendors will be returning, including Moonlite Meadows grass fed beef and lamb, and the Cavendish Fire Department’s Chicken BBQ.
