Community Calendar


Cavendish Calendar Looking for Sponsors 


 

The Cavendish Community and Conservation Association produces a calendar each year that celebrates some aspect of life in Cavendish. Community members take pictures and the twelve best are selected to grace the pages. The calendars sell to the community in time for the holidays each year. The 2016 calendar will be in production this summer and the organization is looking for sponsors. Sponsors can be businesses, or individuals can sponsor a page in honor of a group, an organization or a special person.

 

The 2016 calendar will be the eleventh annual calendar. “Each year we begin to sell the calendars around the greater Cavendish area in November, but need sponsors to sign up in the spring,” said Robin Timko, President of the Cavendish Community and Conservation Association. “We always have room for more sponsors. The money raised helps us produce a number of programs and events, including our nature talks and summer concerts.”

 

Sponsorship is $120 for a month or $65 for a shared month. Sponsors name and logo are prominently shown on the page. To sponsor a month, or for more information about the CCCA organization, please call Robin at 226-7736.


CCCA Soliciting Photos for Annual Contest


2016 Calendar

 

  

Which of your photographs would you like to see in the 2016 Cavendish Calendar?  Each year the Cavendish Community and Conservation Association solicits Cavendish residents for photographs to grace its community calendar. The organization holds a competition in which the community picks the twelve best photos for the calendar. There are three age categories and the best picture in each group receives an award and a prize as well. For the judged contest, this year's prizes for the children and young adult categories will be a weeklong class of their choosing at the Fletcher Farm School for the Arts and Crafts. The prize in the adult category will be a subscription to a popular photographic magazine.

 

Photos must show scenes and landscapes in Cavendish and Proctorsville, valued for their beauty, historic significance and overall importance to the community. Pictures can include people or animals. The purpose of the calendar is to bring a greater appreciation and sense of pride about the town, which is the foundation of conservation and good stewardship.

 

If you have taken pictures in the last year that you think would look good in the calendar or if you feel inclined to take a picture today of a sight that you appreciate in Cavendish or Proctorsville, please consider submitting it for the 2016 calendar competition. You must submit an 8" by 10" photo in a horizontal layout, along with your name, the name you give the picture and the general location of where the photo was taken. Digital copies are encouraged.

 

Entries will be accepted from May 1st through May 31st. All submissions will be exhibited in the Cavendish Town Elementary School during the week of June 8th and then will be displayed for voting in various Cavendish and Proctorsville locations during the rest of the month of June. Winners will be selected and notified during the week of July 6th. Submission application forms will be available beginning May 1st at the Cavendish Town Office, at Cavendish Elementary School and at Crows Bakery on Depot Street, or they can be found on our website at www.cavendishccca.org. If you have questions, please contact Robin at 802-226-7736.
