Cambridge Santa Claus Parade – November 15th

A huge shout out to AMJ Campbell for making it possible for CLC to participate in the Cambridge Santa Claus Parade. This is the 5th consecutive year that AMJ Campbell has generously sponsored CLC in the Santa Claus Parade, providing the truck, driver, supplies and hours and hours of preparation work so the floats can look as amazing as they have.  Well done everyone!

The theme this year was the Nightmare Before Christmas and everyone on the float and walking alongside were dressed as elves.  The costumes were fantastic and fortunately the weather was better than past years, a little chilly, but at least no one got rained on.

Race to Erase – Saturday, October 5th

CLC had two teams competing in the Cambridge Race to Erase last Saturday. There were twelve challenges the teams had to complete around the city, while running against the clock.  It was a great day and thank to all the people involved in organizing the annual event that supports local charities.

Congratulations to both teams for your hard-work fundraising and your commitment to CLC.

Way to go Cirque de Sore Legs and Lil Devils.
