CCCA PRESENTS MARDI GRAS
Cavendish, Vt., January 13, 2013
Once again the Cavendish Community and Conservation Association will hold its annual Mardi Gras celebration to help us chase away the mid-winter blues. This year the festivities will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 9th and will be held at Crow’s Bakery and Opera House Café on Depot Street in Proctorsville.
There will be a New Orleans Cajun style buffet dinner with choice of beverages, and dancing to the great tunes of Yankee Chank with Cavendish’s very own fiddler Bob Naess. Of course it wouldn’t be Mardi Gras without masks, so there will be a prize for the best and most creative homemade mask.
A raffle features three great prizes: a $100 gift certificate to Singleton's Market in Proctorsville – supporting local business; an art basket with a gift certificate to a weekend workshop at Fletcher Farms School for the Arts and Crafts – supporting local arts; and a carriage tour of beautiful Cavendish, with wine and cheese, in Rolf and Carol van Schaik’s horse drawn carriage. Raffle tickets are on sale now at the bakery and from any CCCA board member. The drawing will be held at the celebration.
This is a fundraiser for the CCCA, whose projects include the Cavendish Community Fund, the Annual Cavendish Calendar, and the Walk and Talk series of conservation events. So dig out your mask and dancing shoes, and purchase your tickets early. Laissez les bon temps rouler!
Dinner tickets cost $40 each and are
limited, so please get yours early. Call (802) 226-7736 to reserve
