Red Cross Thanked Through "Random Acts of Cheddar"

You've Just Been Thanked!

The Red Cross was thanked yesterday by the Cabot Farmers of Vermont for eveything that we do in our communities.  Imagine our surprise when a van that looked like a rig made for hunting in fall pulled into our yard and two people dressed in matching flannel shirts got out.  It caused quite a stir and then it became even more exciting when the male member of the team came into our office and placed a bag of Cabot Cheddar Cheese samples on the front counter and said "You've Just Been Thanked."

You see Cabot Creamery is a farmer owned cooperative and like the farm families who own Cabot, they are about community -- those they farm in and those they sell their cheese in.  That's why, says their website, that they created Random Acts of Cheddar, an inititative to share their cheddar and celebrate the cooperative spirit that Cabot is founded upon.

We want to say Thank You Cabot and Thank You Red Crossers everywhere ... It's because of you that "We Have Been Thanked!"
