April Cambridge Happenings April Cambridge Happenings

It’s 9:25 a.m. on April 4 and it’s snowing in Cambridge. Last week I was out in my shorts blinding passers by with my glow in the dark white legs working in the garden. Wild truly wild.

Just finishd the first book in the Chronicles of Narnia – reading it to my 5 and 8 year old boys. A lot of fun as I like fantasy and well my husband Geoff can’t be bothered with it. I’m a little concerned though that the boys want to bury odd things to see if they will grow. However, the cool thing is they are going to bury a mini time capsule in the front yard so that in the future some little kids might find it and know what the Hoffer boys were doing 100 years ago.

Southern Washington County is full of stuff to do in April. Weather can be a little unpredictable so be prepared for wet and cold and warm and dry.

WEST VILLAGE MARKET IS OPEN FOR DINNER ON SATURDAY EVENINGS NOW. Live music is also playing at the restaurant

April 7 & 8: The final weekend of The Wizard of Oz at Cambridge Central School. Tickets can be purchased at the school or call them at 518-677-8427. Dominck Russo has done a tremendous job with the kids and token Toto. We are fortunate to have a program like this at our school. Show is Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m.

April 8: Gardenworks Spring Opening…oh so very exciting. Meg and her team, located 15 minutes north of Cambridge in Salem, open up the barn and the glory of growing and pure enjoyment begin. Jon Katz will be on hand with a dog or two I’m sure. Bring a dirt sample for testing. 518-854-3250 www.gardenworksfarm.com

After visiting Gardenworks head into Salem to Steiningers. The chocolate bunnies and Easter treats are in and quiet frankly the best tasting and best deal on Bunnies and Eggs ever! Have lunch and ENJOY.

This evening marks the beginning of the 20th Anniversary of Music From Salem with a Spring Recital at Cambridge’s own Hubbard Hall at 8:00 p.m. Words can’t describe the feeling one gets when seeing and hearing these musicians in the 1878 Opera House of Hubbard Hall. Tickets are only $18 or better yet become a member support the organization and tickets are $15. www.musicfromsale.org for reservations and information contact Hubbard Hall at 518-677-2495 or www.hubbardhall.org

For dinner consider SARDO’s on route 22, or One One One in Greenwich – or join a community dinner at West Village Market to benefit Randy and Mark who lost their house New Years Eve weekend. Potluck dinner and silent auction.

April 11 : The Rice Mansion Inn and the Cambridge Diner are hosting the Cambridge Volunteer Fire Department for their annual dinner. It’s not open to the public, but know that these guys work for FREE fighting fires in our area. Last week they responded to two brush fires caused by stupidity. Oh! I mean carelessness. Exactly what do you call it when you throw a cigarette out the window of a moving car. They are a not for profit and would appreciate your donations – just send to Cambridge Volunteer Fire Department – Cambridge NY 12816. Or just send a Thank you note!

April 15: Spring Break starts off with the Battenkill-Roubaix Cycling Race on Saturday, April 15. Dieter Drake has brought cycling to the Cambridge/Salem area with this race as well as the Balloon Festival Classic. To learn more about the race as a participant or spectator visit www.bikereg.com or call Dieter at 518-677-8423.

April 18: Paula at West Village Market is having a Caribbean Dinner I guess it’s because it’s as close as we are going to get once we pay our taxes, spray on tan available at the door (just kidding). And if you have not met Vera and experienced her laughter – you don’t know what you are missing. My boys believe she is the happiest person in the world. P.S. I’ve already trademarked the sound!!

April 22: You can take a basic gardening class at Hubbard Hall and then get some good Southern Cookin’ at Pompanuck 518-677-5552 or www.pompanuck.org Good Food, Good People, Great experience.

The Theater Company at Hubbard Hall is doing a Gala Fundraiser with hord’s, beverage and silent auction in the Beacon Feed building and dinner and Cabaret in the Hall following. Again, another magical evening in Cambridge. Space is VERY limited so call NOW 518-677-2495

Adirondack Sports and Fitness Show is at the Saratoga Spring Convention Center Fri, Sat and Sun the Rice Mansion Inn will be there along with Battenkill Valley Outdoors, Willard Mountain and Cambridge Unique supporting adventure tourism in Washington County. Should be great fun come over and visit us.

April 29: Perennial Sale at Hubbard Hall, great fundraiser and plant exchange get there early or dig some of your own and get an early admittance call for details 518-677-2495. That evening Hubbard Hall will present an Evening of Jazz – call for details.

As always, I’m sure there is more than what’s listed here happening in our area. So don’t take my word for it, come visit and experience Cambridge, New York and stay with us at The Rice Mansion Inn.

All the best everyone. Be happy.
