Beth Van Duzer sends a doozy of a thank you and JAWS THIS WEDNESDAY HARBORWALK CINEMA

Cat Ryan submits-

Hi Joey,

Over 1000 people attended the Lego Movie Wednesday night. Gloucester Stage sponsored a fun one. Markouk sold out. Jaws is presented by Cape Ann TV. Great job Matt Coogan, Community Development, Carol Thistle, Mack and Zak; North Shore 104.9 team; Wenham Museum; and Rob Newton Cape Ann Community Cinema for the community through art.

Joey, but wait; there’s more. You and several GMG contributors, and other Gloucester residents, generously contributed content for the HarborWalk. Enjoy the feedback by a grateful mom who took time to write a memorable note to Mayor Kirk and the City.

Plus, photos from David Cox and a super cool lego prize from Cat Barbagallo.

From Carol Thistle, Senior Project Manager for the City, sharing a note from the City Website:

“I thought GMG readers would be interested to see this great thank you note that Mayor Kirk received from Beth van Duzer; her children won a HarborWalk Certificate at Wednesday night’s Lego Movie as part of the HarborWalk Summer Cinema Series. Many children participated in the HarborWalk challenge, and fourteen youth completed all story posts making them official “HarborWalk Explorers”.  In addition to the certificate all the kids received a HarborWalk goodie bag filled with prizes, including a special “Ten Pound Island” Lighthouse Lego designed by Cat Barbagallo. Bring in your completed sheets next week! Here’s the note


Greetings Mayor Kirk.
I just wanted to tell you what a joy it was to complete the Gloucester Harbor Walk. My friend, Mary-Clare Dalzell, was born and raised in Gloucester. It was her idea to go to the outdoor movie where we heard about the Harbor Walk. My daughter, Lucy, has autism and Mary-Clare’s son, Lee, was born with some medical issues so we did drive the children around to the markers that were further off the beaten path. I just wanted to share with you some of our experiences.
We started off our search up at Stage Fort Park. We parked in the 20 minute parking area asked in the visitor center if they knew where the marker was. They either really didn’t know or did an amazing job at making us believe they didn’t know – either way they didn’t tell us where the marker was. We left the visitor center and roamed around a bit, looking near Tablet Rock and down by the water, but we were unsuccessful. As we returned to the visitor center Lee noticed the pillar, right at the end of the visitor center’s drive. Two of the children were instantly exuberant as they each made their rubbings and we happily returned to the car, followed by a police officer. Apparently, we were close to the 20 minute time limit and were really, really close to getting a ticket. The officer was very nice and probably got a chuckle out of our antics and, most importantly, we didn’t get a ticket.
We moved on to the markers down the road where, I must say, we found lots of parking. Some of it was only 15 minute parking but that was enough for our clown car adventure of having the children and parents jump out of a minivan, run down to a marker, make the rubbing – try to make the children read a bit about the marker – and jump back into the car for the next marker. Whilst on the walk Mary-Clare found a photo of her Grandfather and Lee took a selfie with the photo. Lucy found a boat named Lucy and took a photo with it. Lola took time to stop and smell the flowers at the memorial garden.
The best part for the children was when they found the markers all together along Rogers St. Each child (yes, even the two 12-year-olds) delighted in running to be the first to claim a rubbing. From this Harbor Walk my children and I saw parts of Gloucester we had never seen before and I found out where to park – which is almost everywhere. Lucy, Lola (my other daughter), and Lee had a grand time. Mary-Clare and I probably had more fun than the kids, by the end of the day they were a little cranky since our mission was to complete the Harbor Walk in one day, which we did. I homeschool my girls. We are studying Medieval History this year, and I already told them we will revisit Hammond Castle and the Joan of Arc statue when we reach that point in our curriculum.
As Mayor you probably receive a lot of complaints. I just wanted to make sure you knew how much fun we had. It was fabulous that our children were able to meet you last night and all the children were ecstatic with their prize bags. Lucy has already announced that she will be displaying the Ten Pound Island Lego lighthouse in her room. Lola can’t wait to show up for the Jaws movie in her Gloucester Harbor Walk t-shirt and hat. Thanks again to the City of Gloucester for creating an adventure that anybody can take part in. Thank your for posing with photos with the children and rewarding them for completing the walk. It was definitely one of the highlights of this summer.
Best regards,
Beth van Duzer”

Hi Joey,

Grab some Reeses Pieces, it’s a gorgeous day and will be a memorable night to see ET on the HarborWalk Summer Cinema jumbo screen. Get there early, bring a picnic dinner or take out from the yummy vendors. You could have boiled lobster in the rough at Gloucester House or Topside and still see the screen! The pre-movie family tailgate is true community. Community Development has worked with Rob Newton from Cape Ann Community Cinema and Aurelia Nelson and the North Shore 104.9 team to make it festive. Thanks to Pop Gallery for helping to bring ET tonight and Gloucester Stage for The Lego Movie.

Don’t forget: if you haven’t yet, better hustle and SEARCH AND TRACE

There are many fun and free activities on the Gloucester HarborWalk. One of the great games dispersed throughout the entire HarborWalk involves a search and trace game at each story moment post. Children and adults will want to find all (or most) of the story moment posts and trace the unique symbol found on each one. These icons are on the binding of each story moment post. Take a pencil or crayon and make a rubbing of the symbol directly into the squares on these special print outs or onto your own tracing paper. You may need help holding the paper while tracing so bring a friend!

Here are files for printing these sheets. You can also find them on www.ghwalk.org or print outs at the summer cinema series movie nights or Stage Fort Visitor Center.

PRIZES

For the HARBORWALK SUMMER CINEMA SERIES: bring your completed sheet to the August 20th feature, “The Lego Movie”, for a special awards ceremony.

CAPE ANN VERNAL POND TEAM UPDATE

Rick Roth writes:

“Nice time at the Farmer’s Market on Thursday.  Great weather, great crowd.  Thanks to volunteers Colleen Anderson and John Gallagher.  And thanks to the crew from Art Haven, Amelia, Avery and Natalie, for leading the Kid’s activity.

 

Saturday was the Petco Reptile Rally.  Nathan Dubrow was there with his green tree python.  I had a few snakes there and it was a fun event. Thanks to the Petco people who helped us out: Amanda, Acacia, Zac and Caroline.

 

Saturday  July 26, 2014  Time 10am

Snakes of New England and the World- 1 hour live animal presentation.

Sawyer Free Library, 2 Dale Ave., Gloucester MA

 

Saturday  August 2,  9am-5pm

Book Fair at the Manchester Public Library

We’ll be there all day with a bunch of snakes and I believe that someone is going to lead a Kid’s activity.

 

Friday and Saturday  August 8-9  9am-5pm

Gloucester Sidwalk Bazaar, Main Street in front of the Sargent House, near Bananas, where we’ve been for several years.

Bunch of snakes.

 

So… we really need lots of volunteers for the next three weeks.  Remember, even if you can do an hour or two, it will give someone a lunch break or something.  These events are great exposure for us, so please get in touch and let me know that you want to help out.  Those of you that have been around for a while know that I can really pester people about volunteering to the point where they wish they were never born.  Don’t let this happen to you.  Volunteer.

 

Meanwhile… this really cool vernal pond thing is about to take place, likely in the next week or two.  The emergence of newly metamorphosed wood frogs.  They look just like the adults except tiny.  Like 1/2 inch.  We’ll be doing a daytime field trip to see these guys soon.  Nick Taormina is scouting the pond to see just when they start hopping.  Keep watching your CAVPT emails for final details on this exciting outing.  And don’t forget to volunteer.

 

Thanks,  Rick

Family law, which barely existed for most of our country’s history, has morphed into a gigantic industry over the past several decades. Learn first-hand about the excesses and injustices rampant in the U.S. family court system. Do not miss the riveting film that offers a spotless condemnation of family courts across America. In interviews with top insiders and an array of litigants, a place aptly termed “the last fiefdom of lawlessness and tyranny,” is uncovered.

The Beatles at Cape Ann Community Cinema This SAT 1/25

You can always count on Rob Newton to come up with something fun, which is exactly what we need in the dead of winter.  Here’s what he’s got cooked up for this weekend.

CAPE ANN COMMUNITY CINEMA CELEBRATES
THE BEATLES AT 50

Beatles tribute band, film, plus new short this Saturday

Studio-Two

Studio Two

Acclaimed local Beatles tribute Studio Two will kick off the night taking moviegoers and fans back to the early 1960s when The Beatles were taking the world by storm.

In the new documentary short “The Beatles Boston,” filmmaker and lifelong Beatles fan Eric Green examines The Beatles’ history with the city of Boston. Featured interviews include Cha-Chi Loprete (the host of WZLX’s “Breakfast With The Beatles” program) and Tim Riley (NPR music critic and John Lennon biographer). The film illustrates why Boston has always loved The Beatles and continues to today.

The feature-length “The Beatles: First U.S. Visit” documents the Fab Four during their two week trip to New York, Washington, D.C., and Miami Beach. Footage includes an intimate look at the Beatles off-guard, off- and on-stage, their historic appearance on the Ed Sullivan show, and the rise of Beatlemania. 

Ticket prices are $14.00 for adults, $12.00 for Cinema members. Advance tickets are suggested, and may be purchased at www.CapeAnnCinema.com.

ABOUT STUDIO TWO
Studio Two is a Beatles tribute band that pays tribute to the early Beatles years, choosing songs from the pre-Sgt. Pepper era. These four lads met in a “cellar full of noise” in a town west of Liverpool––way west––in Milford, New Hampshire, and very faithfully recreates the Fab Four’s music, instruments, and onstage banter. More info at www.StudioTwoTribute.com.

ABOUT THE CACC
In its sixth year, the Cape Ann Community Cinema (www.CapeAnnCinema.com) is an intimate, 110-seat living-room-style digital theater, with tables for dining, comfortable chairs, and couches. It features an extensive DVD lending library for Cinema Members, and offers a variety of filmmaking courses for students ages 8 to 88. The Cape Ann Community Cinema is located at 21 Main Street, 2nd Floor, Gloucester, Massachusetts.

For more information about the event or the Cape Ann Community Cinema, contact Rob Newton at (978) 309-8448 or CapeAnnCinema at gmail dot com.

 

80s U.K. New Wave Pioneer Thomas Dolby at CACC on FRIDAY!

Every once in a while you get a rare opportunity to experience an intimate evening with a unique talent that you may not be able to see again within driving distance.  That’s what you’ve got this Friday at Gloucester’s wonderfully intimate Cape Ann Community Cinema when 80s electronic music pioneer Thomas Dolby makes a live appearance at the Cape Ann Film Festival.  Get Tickets here.  Check out this tremendously creative trailer:

Big live music weekend coming up ~ so much to do ~ how do you choose?

Well, it’s not easy.  But we’re here to help.  Start with the complete live music lineup here (updated as we learn of new shows and schedule changes).  Below are some highlights:

TONIGHT (Friday)

Remember Joan Osborne?  “What if God were one of us?”  Seems appropriate since Peter Higgs won the Nobel Prize in physics this week for predicting the God Particle that was discovered at CERN earlier this year.  As of this post there are a few seats left — but not many, so if you want to go, CLICK HERE and get your seats now.

TOMORROW (Saturday)

James Keelaghan

Depending on the weather, this might be your last chance to catch a music sail on the Thomas E. Lannon this year.  Michael O’Leary performs with his band.

We would be remiss if we didn’t remind you that the man who holds the well-deserved title of Canada’s finest singer-songwriter, James Keelaghan is at Old Sloop with Tom Smith opening.

Once again, we recommend that you CLICK HERE to get your tickets today if you want to be assured of a seat.

SUNDAY

Marina Evans UNBOUND CD Release concert at Cape Ann Community Cinema looks like it will be an excellent evening.

There are over 20 live shows this weekend, so plenty to choose from if none of these strike your fancy.  See the full lineup here.

Panda Cams are dark, NOAA’s site is down, but Cape Ann TV is up, Gloucester Sings & Lights are on at Larcom Theatre

I sympathize.  Life is tough when you can’t get your panda fix from the National Zoo because the Panda Cams are dark.  Or perhaps you’re wondering what to do after seeing that scary message “NOAA.gov and most associated web sites are unavailable” at  www.noaa.gov.

But don’t be depressed.  When the Allen Estes Band takes the stage on Saturday, the lights will be on at the Larcom Theatre in Beverly (which opened in 1912 — same year as Fenway Park — under the slogan “Lit Completely by Electricity” and it still is!)

Cape Ann TV is still on.  And tonight they premiere a new Local Music Seen show featuring Marina Evans as Allen Estes’ guest on Channel 12 at 6:30pm.

Marina sings new songs off her brand-new CD, Unbound, which she’ll release next Sunday, Oct 13 at concert at Cape Ann Community Cinema.  This will be an excellent night of music, so mark your calendars.

Don’t worry, Marina will be there even if the Government is still shut down.

And, of course, there’s live music all week here in Gloucester.  See the live music lineup here.

Just in case any of you in Washington who voted to shut down the government are reading this post about all that’s going on here despite your antics, we’ve got five words for you: THE SHOW MUST GO ON!

Mark your calendars ~ Marina Evans “Unbound” CD Release Concert Sunday, October 13, 2013
