The TOC is the place to be!
The CCC and members of the Cambridge Licensee Advisory Board invite you to the ninth an- nual Taste of Cambridge (TOC), the city’s premier food festival, featuring over 50 of Cambridge’s finest restaurants. Enhanced by a beautiful outdoor setting, live music and a great crowd, the TOC is one of Cambridge’s most antic- ipated annual events. The 2011 event features creative and abun- dant samples of food and drink from some of this city’s most pop- ular restaurants, with proceeds benefitting local nonprofits. This year's beneficiaries include CCC member, the Salvation Army. Learn more and get tickets at www.tasteofcambridge.com.
The CCC’s Community Outreach Committee would like to remind you that there are dozens of Cambridge teens, age 16 to 18, who are seeking summer jobs. These talented youth can assist you with clerical tasks, answering phones, greeting clients, Internet research, data entry, and much more. Consider hiring a teen to fill vacation gaps or finally tackle that large filing project you’ve been meaning to get to. For more infor- mation, call Ken Bowers at the Cambridge Office of Workforce Development, (617) 349-6272. ccc
