Video- 2012 Saint Peter’s Fiesta Opening Ceremony

Filmed at Friday night’s formal opening ceremony. After shooting the greasy pole contest  I raced back to my car, which was parked all the back to I4-C2, to lessen the load of tripod and video camera. I grabbed my still camera thinking I would only take snapshots. I wish I had kept the video camera with me, but attempted to shoot video with the Fujifilm x100. The x100 unfortunately does not have IS, or image stabilization, nonetheless the colors are good.

We couldn’t be prouder of you both.

You are both beautiful, smart and kind and to say that we are proud of the young adults you have become would be the understatement of the year.

Also kudos to Sista Felicia the maniac and the guy who does so much and leads their family with quiet strength Barry.  You both are inspirational as to how to shower your children with love and always put them first.  The results speak for themselves.

You guys have always been great kids.  Kids that any family would be proud of.  Now you’re great young adults.  Keep on the track you’re on. Smile

Favorite snapshots from the pre-plunge breakfast at Passports

Thank you Passports for hosting the super delicious New Year’s Rocky Neck Pre-plunge breakfast! A wonderful time was had by all!! Beautiful Ciaramitaro family–video footage will have to wait until tomorrow– in the midst of making New Year’s dinner for my family.  Happy New Year to All!

Spirit Of Massachusetts Tall Ship Camp and The Paint Factory

Before talking to the kids I was expecting them to be dying to get off the ship as it was basically 5 days of cloudy rainy weather but to my surprise they were all in great spirits and it was quite apparent that they had made some serious friendships.   One of the kids when asked about the wet conditions they said proudly “it’s sailors weather”!  They met as strangers just 5 days prior but became shipmates for life.  The videos tell the story and the first one will be posted at 10AM.

Tall Ship Camp Aboard The Spirit Of Massachusetts

The Crew pulled into the GMHC this afternoon, luckily I was at the Farmer’s Market and was able to fly down and catch them as they pulled up to the dock.  I have tons of pics and video to share with you over the course of the next week.  Sharon will be sailing also and get the on hands pics only you can get while at sea.

Things To Do- Tall Ship Camp

From Jo-Anne Crawford

Hi Joey

Thanks for all you do for our community!
Here is the program we are trying to put together with the Spirit of Massachusetts for kids and families of Cape Ann.
We are working with SailGloucester out of the Mayors office, and will send you their press release as soon as it is complete.

Ahoy Sailors…..
We are in the 11th hour to do the Tall Ship camp – will your child and a friend would consider it?
We are working with the Gloucester  Mayors office and a new Sail Gloucester initiative that is sooo exciting – but I need to firm up this trip
we need a few more kids
It will be June 28- July 2 (5 days/ 4nights) @ $750 pp this is just the cost of renting the Schooner – and it is a great deal!!! We are not trying to make money – we just believe that our Cape Ann kids deserve this opportunity!!!!!
Thanks for any ideas and input
Jo-Anne and Captain Amanda
