The winners will be posted in The Cavendish Update and here on the blog on Friday, March 6th; with that announcement we will post a new puzzle as well. One lucky winner's name will be drawn at random and will receive a free entry into the Cavendish Connects "All Things Cavendish" Raffle, which will take place on Saturday, December 5th at the 2nd Annual Abundance Swap. 

This month's puzzle is a crossword created courtesy of Cavendish resident Kem Phillips.

You may either print the crossword out, complete it, and mail it or scan it and e-mail it to us. You can also email us your answers numbered (ex. 1, 2, 3, etc.). 

Please feel free to reach out at with any questions! 

We hope you enjoy tackling this first puzzle!
