                        11/27/18 Cavendish Update: Emergency Response

Due to the snow storm, many parts of Cavendish have been without power for almost 24 hours. Our amazing road crew has been out working tirelessly to remove fallen trees, plow roads and making it possible to get out. GMP is doing an incredible job as well. We are far from the only town that has been hard hit by the storm so please be patient as they are working around the clock to restore power.

Conditions are not great as trees continue to fall. It is for this reason that all of the schools in the Two Rivers Supervisory Union (TRSU)-CTES, GMUHS, BRHS and Ludlow Elementary-are closed tomorrow.

To assist the community, the Cavendish shelter will be fully operational starting tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov. 28. The schedule will be as follows:
• Breakfast: 8 am
• Lunch: 11:30-1:00
A determination will be made at lunch whether dinner will be needed.

Hot showers, charging of phones and electronic devices, and a place to get warm will be available throughout the day at the shelter. If you would like to donate food, you can start dropping off items at 7 am.

Please use the Cavendish VT Facebook page for up to date information. You do not have to be a Facebook subscriber to use the site. Many people are posting road condition information for their area. The site is being continually monitored.

If you have questions or concerns, call the town office 802-226-7292.

A special thank you to our incredible Cavendish Highway Department, who we are told are unanimous in saying this is the worst storm they've seen since Irene.
