Cavendish Community Fund Updates Its Image
The Cavendish Community Fund has passed the ten-year mark and is now updating its image with a new logo. In 2007 the Fund began with donations from several supportive citizens to help build a closer and more cohesive Cavendish. Over ten years the Fund has distributed more than $31,000 in grants to enhance the quality of life in Cavendish. The projects, programs or events that the Fund considers are education in its broadest sense, cultural events, and promotion of the arts.
To celebrate its success and to better reflect its philosophy and goals the Fund has adopted the new logo as a representative of its beliefs. The Fund believes that the bonds of community are the source of dynamic and reciprocal social interaction. These interactions build a dense network of relationships that generates trust, which, in turn, provides the basis for collective problem solving in everyday life.
Community activities provide the opportunity to make new connections with others and, with each new opportunity for connection, to deepen the understanding of how to initiate and maintain new relationships with other local citizens who may be strangers. Activities and events that the Fund sponsors provide the venue for these opportunities to narrow the divide between groups with different interests and backgrounds.
