CAMBRIDGE – It’s good to know there’s so much going on in Dorchester County.

A look at the 2019 Dorchester County Profile, “Water Moves Us,” is enough to confirm that local commercial activity is gaining momentum. The directory was compiled, as in past years, by Banner Editor Paul Clipper and Advertising Manager Dave Cannon.

Local officials attended the introduction of the magazine on Thursday at the Dorchester Economic Development Office’s Innovation Center. “We help business owners navigate and access the services and resources they need to succeed,” a statement on the center’s website says.

This year’s magazine helps with that kind of navigation, as well, with features on C&K Lord metal fabricators, Hoopers Island Oyster Company, B&B Sport Aviation, the area’s deep ties with its German heritage, and much more.

With the project being a public/private cooperative effort, Mr. Cannon said, “We certainly appreciate the support of the county.”

Banner Publisher Darel La Prade thanked Innovation Center Director Jeff Trice and Business Development Director Susan Banks for their participation. “It was Jeff’s vision that provided the extraordinarily coherent vision for this year’s magazine,” Mr. La Prade said. “The common thread in these stories is that Dorchester is a county on the move. Another common thread is the county’s diversity.”

This is the sixth year the Banner has produced the profile, with its comprehensive collection of business, cultural and educational features. Copies are available the Banner office at 103 Cedar St. and at the Innovation Center at 103 Tech Park Drive, both locations in Cambridge.

“On behalf of the Banner and its team, I would like to say we are delighted to be of service to the county,” Mr. La Prade said.
