Gloucester’s Unitarian Universalist Church is about to become handicapped-accessible, for the first time in its 206-year history. Platform-lift elevators are being installed and an outdoor ramp is already in place, to make it easy for everyone to access this historic building! To help pay the bills, the church is conducting an online Bidding for Good auction, starting Thursday, Sept 20, and ending on Sunday, Sept. 30. More than 150 items are on auction, from fine art to good eating, to fuel oil, to a Red Sox No. 34 jersey signed by David Ortiz (size XXL)! Start your Christmas shopping now. Go to www.gloucesteruu.org and then click where it says “View Our Auction Here.” Please bid! And pass the word!
And, oh, yes – come visit us during Trails & Sails weekend – tours are on Friday and Saturday at 10, 1, and 3 – and on Sunday at 1, 2, and 3. And on Saturday, come hear some great sea chantey singing by Baggywrinkle and Three Sheets to the Wind – part of the Captain’s Courageous festival!
