A pre-schooler’s giggle while playing. The crack of a baseball bat. A shared lunch with neighbors. A quick update with an acquaintance. The smell of the beach. The feeling after a good workout. These are all things we have missed these recently.
We have all individually and collectively faced extraordinary challenges this past year. With these challenges, the need for a strong community with positive and enriching interactions becomes even more important. We can all be lifted with experiences involving our families, friends, neighbors and community members.
Since its inception, the Cambridge Community Activities Program has played an important role as facilitator of programs and activities for a wide range of groups, from our school children to our seniors. I believe we all look forward to a future time of ‘normal’ where we can safely return to our interactions and our activities and events that enrich us as well as our community.
To that end, CAP staff have been busy evaluating and planning how to safely bring back programs and activities for our patrons. Safety for our patrons has been a primary focus for this work, and each program or event brings with it unique issues. Program details have been evaluated along with potential risks to patrons and others that patrons might come into contact with. Our directors and staff have also consulted federal, state and county guidance for reopening safety and as soon as is reasonably possible. To that end, we are happy to share our Fall/Winter program guide with you and hope that we can all again enjoy the use of facilities and programs which CAP provides.
Be well, stay well.
President, CAP Board of Directors
