The Cavendish Community Fund officers and staff thank all individuals who attended the benefit dinner on August 1 at the Cavendish Inn for their generosity. The fundraiser was an unqualified success, both socially and financially. Attendees were treated to a wonderful dinner and even got to enjoy it outside on one of the nicest Saturday evenings in quite a while.
The Fund provides modest monetary grants for projects, programs and events of an educational or cultural nature in Cavendish. Since its inception in 2007 it has funded twelve programs ranging from an archeological dig and a movie series, to concerts on the Green and teacher training. Several recent recipients of grants spoke to the dinner guests to describe their experiences and to thank the fund for its support.
Without local support there is no way that these various events would take place. With the local support received this summer the Fund hopes to continue its tradition of semi-annual grants in the fall and in the spring. The Fund will accept grant applications at any time.
Information on how to apply can be found at www.CavendishCCCA.org, or by calling 226-7187.
The next deadline will be announced soon.
