The cost is $35 a person and will take place at their Ludlow tasting room, Circa 1810, 116 Main St. Tickets can be purchased by stopping by Circa 1810 during business hours or sending a check, payable to Brook Farm Vineyards, to CHS, PO Box 472, Cavendish, VT 05142. This would make a great Mother’s Day present. FMI: 802-226-7807 or

Stone Church: The belfry repair has been completed. Next up is to take care of the powder post beetle problem in the vestibule of the church; replace the belfry roof; assess repair needs on the roof and to paint the door and shutters.
Belfry Repair underway. 

These were most likely the original doors to the
museum, which were modified with panes
of glass. The new double hung doors will
be solid, similar to the doors at the Cavendish
Stone Church, which was built around the same time.
Museum: Under Dave Stern’s guidance, work has begun to replace the single door with period correct double hanging doors. Thanks to Carl Liener, the transom window over the door is being reglazed and painted. Nothing is ever simple with a building of this age, but little by little progress is being made and it wont be long before the new doors will be installed.

Carmine Guica Young Historians: A series of activities are being planned with the 6th graders including a panel on immigration; recording of Cavendish ghost stories with LPC-TV; day long cleaning of debris and placing flags on veterans’ graves in Cavendish maintained cemeteries; and making poppies for Memorial Day.

Annual Plant Sale: Thanks once again to our “plant whisperers” Svetlana and Kem Phillips, we will have something new to offer at this year’s Plant Sale-Chestnut trees. We begin to transplant after Mother’s Day so if you have plants you’d like to donate, please contact us. If you have pots you can donate, leave them by the door to the Museum. Once again we will offer container tomato plants and you will be able to pre order. 

Presentation: Margo Caulfield will be doing a discussion and book signing –Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn: The Writer Who Changed History-at the Fletcher Community Library in Ludlow on June 22, 7pm
