A community potluck and party hosted by the Cambridgeport Neighborhood Association is scheduled for  Oct. 2 in Dana Park, starting at 4 p.m. after noon events planned by the Cambridgeport History Day Project.

There is to be live bluegrass and western swing music by the Bag Boys, sponsored by the Cambridgeport Neighborhood Association and the history project; family and kid-friendly events from 2 to 5 p.m.; and information tables featuring local nonprofits and neighborhood groups from 2 p.m. onward.

Cambridgeport residents should come and meet their neighbors, organizers say, as well as bring some food or beverage to share – enough for eight people.  Help is also needed setting up tables and with other party preparations. To volunteer, send e-mail to Bill August or Carolyn Shipley.

The history project events are to include a walking tour of Cambridgeport with Charles Sullivan, executive director of the Cambridge Historical Commission. In a feature called “If This House Could Talk,” signs are to be posted in front of Cambridgeport houses detailing their history or an interesting event that took place on the site.  For information, click here.
