Don’t forget

CAPE ANN MUSEUM * IS THE NEXT BIG HARBORTOWN CULTURAL DISTRICT EVENT

Date:   August 27, 2013

Time: 6PM

Please RSVP for the head count party prep

Let’s support our GHCD partner! The Cape Ann Museum, a Harbortown founding partner, has generously offered an exclusive after hours treat.

Come wander the hallways, rooms, expansive permanent collection and not one, but TWO well-thought and expertly curated, rotating exhibits, all the while sipping a beverage and enjoying your fellow GHCD cohorts. Museum Director Ronda Faloon will lead a tour of the Museum’ s renovation plans, with the most up to date and exciting reveal and news. Let’s put it this way…their campaign is inspiring! Take your own mental “before” snapshots and be ready for the Museum’s “after” plans:  aiming for an even better visual, intellectual and cultural classic for downtownGloucester.

Along with socializing, having a bit of wine, cheese and fruit (compliments of the Museum), we’ll also mesh this event seamlessly with a partners meeting. We’ll do some GHCD business while we’re hobnobbing and doing business!

Co-Chair, Bob Whitmarsh, adds a personal touch—

Bob hand delivered the Downtown Gloucester Cultural District required support material (two complete sets) to the Boston offices for the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), the last step in the application process. We hope Gloucester will be the first town in MA with 2 cultural districts and that the DGCD will soon join the other excellent cultural districts on the North Shore !

Please check out the photos of the binders being presented by Bob to Meri Jenkins and Kylie Sullivan of the MCC.

Next steps: The MCC will arrange a site visit and will go over our application in detail before a recommendation can be made to go forward with establishing the DGCD.
