Ludlow’s Frank Provance is named the 2022 Good Neighbor for the VAR

The Vermont Association of Realtors® (VAR) has named Frank Provance as its 2022 Good Neighbor. Provance is a Realtor with Diamond Realty in Ludlow.

“Each year, VAR recog- nizes one individual who
has made an extraordinary impact on their community through volunteer work,” said VAR Chief Executive Kathy Sweeten. “Frank is well known as a tireless champion in his community.”

Provance’s volunteer commitment spans multiple organizations. He has sup- ported the board’s local com- munity initiatives, including blood drives, annual yard sale fundraisers, member- to-member fundraisers,and more. He spearheads the board’s annual Golf for a Cause, which raised nearly $50,000 for those in need.

Provance delivers Meals on Wheels weekly, and
has been known to install windows, shovel driveways, move furniture, and pick up items for those along his Meals on Wheels route. He also helped start the Okemo freestyle program where

he lends his expertise as a former ski instructor and mogul competitor. Last year, Provance volunteered to play Santa Claus, visiting local fire stations, and delivering more than 3,000 gifts to local kids.

“You’d have a hard time finding someone in the Cav- endish/Ludlow area who is not familiar with Frank,” said Lisa Kelley, CPBR 2022 president. “The only thing bigger than his presence and the hours he spends volunteering, is his heart.”
