Sensible Shoes to perform in Proctorsville
Proctorsville Green
August 15th
6 p.m.

The Town of Cavendish and the Cavendish Community and Conservation Association invite everyone to spend an evening listening to the sounds of Sensible Shoes on the Proctorsville Green on Wednesday, August 15th at 6:00 p.m.

Sensible Shoes is a returning regular to the Proctorsville Green and is always warmly welcomed to the gazebo. The four members are drummer and singer Steve Drebber, lead guitarist and singer Tim Utt, bass guitar and vocalist Pooh Sprague, and Barbara Blaisdell on keyboard.

This will be the last of this year’s regularly scheduled concerts that are held on consecutive Wednesday nights in July and August and will be sponsored by Outer Limits Brewery in Proctorsville.  However, due to previous rain postponements, there will be more concerts in August this year. Watch for date announcements.

Cavendish encourages all area residents and visitors to join their friends and neighbors in front of the gazebo on the green. Bring a blanket or a comfortable chair, have a picnic, or just lie back and relax on the grass. It’s a fun way to enjoy the summer weather and either reconnect with old friends or make new ones.  

As always, the concerts are free and open to all. For more information please call Robin at 226-7736. In the event of rain, postponement information will be reflected on the Cavendish Facebook page.

Rick Redington and

the Luv

The Cavendish Community and Conservation Association invites everyone to the Proctorsville Green for the continuing summer music series on Wednesday, August 22nd at 6:00 p.m. to hear the rocking good sounds of Rick Redington and the Luv. This is a rescheduled concert since Rick was originally scheduled for earlier this season but was rained out.

Whether playing an intimate solo acoustic performance in a coffeehouse setting, or rocking out with his band “The Luv” in a large concert venue, Rick’s performances have something memorable and meaningful for all to share. Rick has recorded with legendary rock and rollers and has had his music used in films and in Ken Burns’ documentaries. No strangers to the Proctorsville Green, Rick and the band have delighted the local Wednesday evening concert goers in past years. This concert is sponsored by The Pointe at Castle Hill.

As always, the concerts are free and open to the public. In case of inclement weather, check the Cavendish Facebook page for news. For more information please call Robin at 226-7736. 

Mission Statement

The CCCA is a non-profit membership organization that is dedicated to the conservation of land and natural resources and to the preservation of historic sites within the context of sustainable economic growth. Its commitment is to promote understanding and learning that engages and benefits all members of the Cavendish/Proctorsville community, now and in the future.

Grassroots Communities

CCCA believes that our focus on conservation provides a critical balance to Cavendish during this time of increased development pressure. Situated only a few hours from large population densities, Vermont is changing rapidly as farm and forest lands throughout the state are being converted to non-agricultural uses at an unprecedented rate.

We are particularly concerned about flat, open lands most valuable for agriculture as they are also most suitable for housing, industry and retail uses. We are just as concerned with fragmentation of forests, which negatively impacts wildlife habitats, water quality, ecosystem processes, the timber industry, viewsheds and access to land for recreation.

National Geographic Traveler recently rated Vermont as one of the top unspoiled destinations in the world, along with Norwegian fjords and the Swiss Alps. Shortly after that release, the National Trust for Historic Preservation declared Vermont one of America’s most endangered places. Vermont loses a square mile of critical habitat and 6,500 acres to development every year.

Throughout Vermont organizations like CCCA are coming together to educate themselves and their communities about the value of our heritage, alternative enterprises for land-owners and ways to support the working landscape. We are excited about the important work before us and we ask for your continuing interest and support.

Projects and Plans

In accordance with the CCCA Vision and Mission Statements, the organization has worked closely with many citizens and town officials on land use issues and with the Cavendish Historical Society on historic preservations and similar projects. The CCCA Board and members believe that Cavendish can preserve its rural character and still pursue economic and social progress.

None of this is possible without the volunteer efforts of citizen members who are willing to give some of their time and talent to the process. CCCA has no employees and no hierarchy other than the directing efforts of the Board members, all of whom are Cavendish citizens who are concerned with the future of our town. Members can give whatever time they can afford and can help on whatever issue concerns them the most.

Some Cavendish property owners live in other towns and states, but are still deeply interested in the issues and projects espoused by CCCA. These individuals are still welcome to join and they can contribute to CCCA efforts through cash donations anytime.
