CRAFTSBURY – Jack Travelstead of Woodbury is the winner of the Phil Pike handcrafted canoe raffled Saturday, August 14, by the Craftsbury Community Care Center.

Artisan Phil Pike drew ticket No. 49 at Craftsbury’s Old Home Day. Travelstead is a long-time supporter of the care center and says he is ready to take out the cedar canoe.

“This is unbelievable,’ Travelstead told care center Board President Jane Marlin. “I almost deleted your email, thinking it was spam, when a friend who was at your event emailed me at the same time to say ‘I think you won the canoe’.” Travelstead picked up his new canoe on Sunday afternoon.

Craftsbury Community Care Center provides critical residential support to elders of all economic abilities.
