Area Four pizza and Toscanini’s ice cream

Area Four pizza and Toscanini’s ice cream will feed participants at the Thursday open house.

Get involved with local media at a Cambridge Day open house from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday in Central Square.

Cambridge Day has been posting news and information for Cambridge (and to a much lesser degree, Somerville) more or less daily since the fall of 2009, and for much of that time has been essentially a one-person operation. There have been contributors along the way, and recently a talented crew of people have provided the city with extra insight on issues of education, development, housing and health and on the wealth of cinema opportunities.

This is a chance to join in and help build a community-based site, shaping Cambridge Day into anything bigger and better, more diverse and representative of more points of view.

Come for an open house and Q&A with the founder and editor while enjoying pizza from Area Four and ice cream from Toscanini’s. Explore how you can become more involved in the community via this local news medium, whether by writing news or features, editing, taking photos, programming, grant-writing or selling ads.

Additionally, this past summer and into the fall, Cambridge Day supported a weekly celebration of free speech in Harvard Square called Speakers’ Circle. Volunteers are also sought with organizational or grant-writing skills that could support that project when it returns in the spring.

The Cambridge Day Open House is from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Out of the Blue Art Gallery Too, 541 Massachusetts Ave., Central Square. For information, call (617) 230-9632 or send email here.
