Letter to the Editor Feb. 2

Dear Editor,

The Cavendish Community and Conservation Association, as all groups in service to their communities, could not prosper without the support of people in the community itself.

Joyce Ringhel was just such a person. Joyce passed three months ago. She was a joyous and kind woman who also baked phenomenal cookies. Joyce and her husband Charles had been tremendous supporters of our work and we are saddened for her passing. 

Patricia Nye is another dear friend and supporter who passed not long ago and who, in her fiery nature and humorous way never stopped encouraging us to continue our efforts on behalf of conservation and community building.

This has been a series of difficult months for all of us in Vermont and so for the people of Cavendish, and it is with regret that we come so late to this expression of condolence to both Charles Ringhel and Richard, Will and Amber Nye.  We know, that for all of us who knew Joyce and Pat and their bright giving spirits, they will live on in our memories and continue to bring us courage to dream and do what needs to be done.


Robin Timko, President CCCA
