n Fri 20-Oct -2017, a Japanese TV crew filmed a Grandma Moses scene in Cambridge. This was a reenactment of Louis Caldor discovering Grandma's paintings in the window of Thomas' Drug Store in Hoosick Falls (the role of Thomas' store was played by Round House Cafe in Cambridge because, well, because Cambridge is beautiful)

In the afternoon, the crew interviewed Harry Moses, the last grandson. Harry didn't disappoint. His stories of Grandma were told as only he can with a twinkle in his eye and a smile on his lips.

** No. 2 Greatest Game ** -- of the 1990s as selected by the Glens Falls Post Star

Cambridge 21, Saranac Lake 20, Nov. 28, 1992, state Class C semifinal at Hudson Falls. This was the game that spawned perhaps the single most amazing play in Glens Falls area history — two-back special pass, simply known as “The Play”– the double-lateral 80-yard touchdown pass that proved to be the decisive score. Quarterback Steve Dearstyne lateraled left to Rob Harrington, who threw another lateral back across the field to Cory Record. Record then launched a bomb down the right sideline to Aaron Peters, who completed the touchdown play with 1:53 left. Josh Woodworth’s PAT gave Cambridge a 21-20 lead. The TD completed the Indians’ rally from a 20-0 second-quarter deficit as they finished a 10-0-1 season with the No. 2 ranking in the state.
