Cabot Community Association Board 2022
Roz Daniels, Cabot Plains
My favorite location in Cabot is my yard!
What I love about Cabot: We moved here thirty years ago for the school. I also love that Cabot is a real community of people who care for each other.
I serve on the CCA Board to have a voice in the town's moving forward.
The CCA is important to offer groups a chance to collaborate and to have financial integrity.
R.D. Eno, Thistle Hill Road
I live on Thistle Hill Road, which begins life in the village as Whittier Hill Road, changes names halfway and runs over to Route 2.
My wife, Janet Van Fleet, and I moved into this log home, with its spectacular view of Camel's Hump, on Election Day, 1976. Other than my house, my favorite place in Cabot is The Den at Harry's Hardware.
I have served as Selectboard chair, UDAG Committee chair, Historical Society president, Willey Building
Committee chair and Town Meeting moderator. I was a founder of the CCA in 1998 and started Cabot Arts in 2013. When Cabot Arts (which is now a free-standing non-profit) became a program of the CCA, I rejoined the CCA board after an absence of many years.
The CCA is a producer of community events, a clearing house for charitable funds that flow through it to local groups, an incubator for local arts, cultural and commercial enterprises, a fiscal agent for Cabot organizations, a driver of economic activity and, most recently, the owner and developer of a central property in Cabot village. The CCA has become the most useful, flexible and important institution in Cabot, responsive to a variety of needs and a forum for every conversation about Cabot's future.
Jeanne Johnson, Cabot Plains
I love the view from the top of Danville Hill Road, especially when the US flag is flying overhead.
What I love about Cabot: I've long been a sucker for dirt roads and green hills.
I moved to Cabot because that's where our family support was, and my husband and I had a young child. He is now 27!
I serve on the CCA Board because I believe the CCA's mission and leadership are worthy of support. I think the CCA is important because good things can happen in a community when people work together, and CCA provides a platform to do that.
The local government cannot, and should not, be responsible for everything. The value of a non-governmental organization (NGO) to help coordinate all the varied volunteer efforts in the town, and to help manage key non-profit aspects critical for the town's success, is immeasurable and Cabot should feel proud to have such an organization.
Frank Kampf, The hill behind the Creamery
There is no one place in Cabot that stands out more than another. We visit different parts of the town for different reasons, but must admit that our little piece of Cabot is our favorite place to be. There is nothing like life on a small farm in the hills of Cabot.
What you love about Cabot: The community and the environment.
During my lifetime I have travelled widely throughout the USA and Canada, and even though I could have lived anywhere due to my career choice, I found Vermont to be the best place I could live. After living in Vermont long enough to learn the communities, my wife and I decided to live in this general area and when we looked at area towns we felt Cabot was the best place due to the sense of community and the quintessential Vermont character of the town.
I serve on the CCA board because I was raised with a sense of community service which was instilled in me by my parents who spent their lifetime volunteering. If
one wants a community to succeed, one must be willing to help that community succeed.
Susan Robinson, Lower Cabot
My favorite location in town, besides home, is up Ducharme Road, and West Hill Pond.
What I love about Cabot: Is that Cabot is filled with awesome community members who are positive, enthusiastic, and who work to make Cabot a special place to live.
I moved to Cabot in 2015, because it just felt like home.
I serve on the CCA Board because I like contributing toward making Cabot an [even more] special place to live.
The CCA brings positive energy to the community and genuinely cares about supporting its economy, maintaining its natural beauty, bringing arts and entertainment, and improving the overall well-being of all community members. Without the CCA, many wonderful things that most people probably take for granted — such as The Chronicle, seasonal festivals, concerts, flower baskets downtown, economic planning and coordination, working landscape network — simply would not occur.
Paul Wade, Cabot Plains
What I like about Cabot, is the sense of community, and the CCA tries to improve it.
Jan Westervelt, Main Street
We have lived in the village for almost 50 years. Cabot is a great place to raise a family. One of Cabot's greatest strengths is the diversity of its residents, not so much racially, although that is increasing, but in terms of points of view, skills and experience. In the recent 4th of July parade floats we had what might be considered the different sides of the country's current social divide as well as representations of local pride and interests. They all belonged there and I did not hear a single derogatory sound.
The CCA is important to me because it provides administrative support for whatever community projects people decide they want to undertake.
