 5/20/16 Cavendish Update

1. Six Loose Ladies Moving

2. Now Hiring

3. LPCTV Seeking Board Members

4. Events

1. SIX LOOSE LADIES MOVING: This August would have been the 10th anniversary of Six Loose Ladies opening at their current location on the corner of Depot Street and Route 131 in Proctorsville. Founded by a group of women who met at the Golden Stage Inn and Crows Corner Bakery and Cafe in Proctorsville, their interest was “all things fiber” and sharing this skill with others. Among the founders from Cavendish were Micki Smith, Phyllis Bont, Sandy Craig, Ann Dortch, and Wendy Regier.

While there are still Cavendish fiber artists who both work and sell from the store, the Six Loose Ladies board recently voted to move to Chester, as a board member purchased a building there. By being located on the Chester Green, they believe they will have a larger customer base to draw from.

The current Six Loose Ladies location will be closing in mid June with plans to reopen on the Chester Green in July.

As part of their moving sale, on Saturday May 28, Six Loose Ladies is holding a Craft & Yarn Community Yard Sale on the Proctorsville Green from 10-5. If you would like to sell fiber related items (half done projects, ends of skeins, needles etc.) you are welcome to set up a booth free of charge. Registration is required. If interested, e-mail FMI: 802-226-7373

Please note that some of the area fiber artists will continue to sell locally at the Fletcher Farm Craft School Store  (June 27-Oct. 12) and Craft Shows (July 2 and Aug. 20) off Route 103 on the Cavendish/Ludlow line.

2. NOW HIRING: Glimmerstone Mansion on Route 131 in Cavendish is now licensed for catering and is renting the entire property for events and weddings.  We are in need of a dishwasher and wait staff for weddings taking place on Saturdays throughout the Summer season.  FMI: Mary Jane at 802-554-0078.

3. LPCTV SEEKING BOARD MEMBERS: Do you know someone who might be a good fit for helping non profit, independent, & local media grow and thrive? Perhaps a family member, friend, neighbor, or colleague? LPCTV is seeking nominations for its 2016 Board of Directors elections. Anyone who is 18 or over and lives in Ludlow, Plymouth, Cavendish, or Mount Holly is eligible to serve on the Board. LPCTV is the community television station and media center for the Black River Valley & Okemo region, operating cable TV channels 8 & 10 (ch 20 & 21 in Mount Holly).

Elections will be held at LPCTV¹s Annual Membership and Organizational Meeting on Thursday, June 16 at 7PM. Directors hold volunteer positions on the Board, whose primary responsibility is to govern the organization and help it grow, establishing it as a vital community resource. The Board of Directors also manages finances and oversees the work of the Executive Director.

Any interested candidates or anyone wishing to nominate someone they know should contact Executive Director Patrick Cody, by email at or by mailing to LPCTV (37C Main St., Ludlow, VT 05149). Nominations must be received by Wednesday, June 1st.  FMI, visit LPCTV online or call 228-8808.
