CROSSROADS PICNIC (1ST ANNUAL)



Cambridge Crossroads celebrated its first year on a beautiful late-summer evening at the Brewster River Campground. About 40 people came and went, enjoying good food, good company, good music and a campfire under a full moon.

On the menu: roasted Valley Dream Farm corn, hot dogs, chili made with Boyden Farm beef topped with grated Hanley's smoked cheddar, 3 different coffees from Brown & Jenkins, salads and desserts by luck, and smores by the campfire.

Music by "The Old Dirty String Band" -- accoustic fiddle, guitar, tub base, kazoo and down-home vocals.

SNOWSHOE HIKE

The Community Center Committee organized a snowshoe trek Saturday, January 31, 2009. Our local guide, David Schilling led us on a tour up and over the guard rail on route 108, down into the valley below the Notch where a beaver pond nestles. We saw animal tracks in the snow and evidence of our local black bear friends. It was a gorgeous, sunny morning enjoyed by all!

COFFEE TASTING

On Saturday, March 7, 2009, our community met at Brown & Jenkins Coffee Co. in Cambridge for a coffee tasting event. Owner Sandy Riggen offered 10 different fresh-brewed coffees to sample. Jim McEnaney, rep for Costa Rican coffee farm La Minita, described coffee growing and Master roaster Glenn Gale roasted some of their beans. It was an awesome opportunity to try several coffees at once and expand our knowledge of a favorite beverage.
