Cambridge Main Street and the Dorchester Early Childhood Advisory Council are working together to celebrate April as the "Month of the Young Child" with a family-oriented event in Cannery Way to promote early childhood development and childhood literacy. The event will take place from 3-5 p.m. this Saturday and is meant to show families how easy it is to engage young people and promote learning in fun and creative ways.


Not to be outdone, four local businesses have offered to give away free children's books to those who attend the event.

Cambridge Main Street has teammed up with Dorchester County Public Schools and the Early Childhood Advisory Council to celebrate April as the Month of the Young Child this Saturday, April 11, from 3-5 p.m. There will be more than 20 local groups with activities set up for young children and their families to show just how fun it can be to keep your child's mind activated and learning.


Among the groups present will be a K-9 police officer from the Dorchester County Sheriff, a fire truck from Cambridge Fire and Rescue, a Lego station from the Dorchester County Library and a band of young musicians trained at Mike Elzey's Guitar Studio.

Cambridge Main Street will honor Joy Staniforth with the Marjorie S. Lednum Award for Outstanding Volunteerism during its annual Spring Fling fundraising gala on April 25 from 6-11 p.m. at the Cambridge Yach Club.


Staniforth was most recently the owner and operator of Joie de Vivre Gallery at 410 Race Street where she helped to begin the renaissance of downtown Cambridge 13 years ago. Her commitment to Cambridge, its economic revitalization, and her efforts to have Cambridge recognized as an Arts and Entertainment District have fueled enormous efforts to stabilize the economy here.


This is the second year of the Marjorie S. Lednum Award for Outstanding Volunteerism, which is given for extraordinary volunteer contributions towards Cambridge Main Street’s mission of revitalizing and stabilizing the economic environment in downtown Cambridge. It is named in honor of Marjorie S. Lednum, the first president of Main Street and a tireless supporter of Cambridge Main Street.

Chef Patrick Fanning and Cambridge Eateries is proud to present its newest member of the family - Black Water Coffee House - at 429 Race Street. The official opening will be March 1. They will still be serving Night Kitchen Coffees, brewed right here on Cambridge Main Street, but it will also feature made-to-order donuts, gourmet ice cream and more.
