Start of an exciting Summer!
My name is Grant Baker and I am a rising junior at Cambridge Rindge and Latin Highschool in Cambridge, MA. I'm 16 years of age and look forward to a great summer with the Save the Harbor, Save the Bay team. Last Wednesday, the start of orientation, I was a bit nervous because I didn't know any of the kids. However, all of the returning staffers were very nice, which made the STHSTB community seem more welcoming. My favorite part of the day was when we went out to Spectacle Island in Boston Harbor. We got to look at all of the junk and we figured out where some of the stuff came from. It was interesting that a beach so close to Boston had so many hidden treasures. My favorite item I found was a piece of a bowl and cup that looked as though they had come from the same set. This was interesting to me because it showed how they had stood the test of time. Hopefully, this summer will be full of hidden treasures and one that I remember forever.\
