Up Jumped Spring ~ so Hello my Friends!

I heard Abbey Lincoln singing “Up Jumped Spring” on the radio while driving to Passports this morning to meet my friends for brunch–the lyrics couldn’t have been more perfect! Up jumped spring time – so Hello my friends!

Donna Ardizzone and Rick Moore Not Too Old To Dress Up For Halloween

Hi Joey:

From Donna Ardizzone

So much fun to grand children..

Great Teamwork Once Again Shows What Is Possible

Look for The Block Party Red Carpet Celebrity Slide Show At 8AM

A Complete Team Effort Proved Once Again That The Power Of Pulling In The Same Direction For A Great Event Can Reap Huge Rewards For Our Entire Community!

Great job by my fellow Block Party Committee members once again.  Also a great job by the folks in City Government and the Police and Fire Departments.

Special thanks to some unsung heros who also helped tremendously during the event- Rick Moore, Donna Ardizzone, and Bob Gillis who helped clean the streets.

Thanks To the DPW for leaving the extra barrells.

Big thanks to The Cape Ann YMCA Clean Team who you will see in a video later today helping to clean the streets spotless at the end of the night.

I’d like to give a huge personal thank you to our Good Morning Gloucester Soldiers- Sharon who manned the GMG Block Party Celebrity Red Carpet Station (Slide show coming at 8AM), Joey and Frank Ciolino who built the backdrop and helped throughout the event at the media presentation truck and David Cox who will undoubtedly provide us with hundreds more photos from this magnificent evening .

Thanks to the people who provided the media presentations, the Art Haven Folks who provided children activities, and Georgie and Erika Hansen who were doing the face painting.

Thanks to all the musicians and performers who donated their time on one of the busiest nights of the year when they could be playing paid gigs elsewhere but play instead for free because they too realize that sometimes it’s not about getting paid.

The Downtown Merchants and restaurants once again put their best face forward and showed what a brilliant  jewel we have in Downtown Gloucester.

Good Eggs- Things To Do- Cleaning Crew

Got this message from Donna Ardizzone-

Hi All:

One Hour at a Time:

Date:                 Saturday, April 4, 2009

Time:                08:00 AM

Where:              St. Peters’ Square

Please bring gloves and looking forward to seeing all

Thanks

That’s all it said.  So I sent an email back to Donna asking here what the heck was going on.

She replied-

Hi Joey;

It started with Bob Gillis, Ed the House Doctor, Tony, Precision Roofing, myself and we just decided to do it and start cleaning rather than wait for the city to do it.  Patti Amaral helps as often as she can.  Some weeks we have quite few people.  I send out the emails and we all decide what she be taken care of next.

A bunch of us decided to clean the streets every Saturday morning for an hour.  Pick up trash, cigarette butts, etc.  We go to Main Street and then the next week the BLVD, Good Harbor, etc.  wherever we see an issue..  It works really well and people come up to us and thank us and I think that if people see people keeping their city clean it is catchy.  Maybe you could mention on Good Morning Gloucester, thanks and also did you get to see Barbara’s window with the wedding dresses.  Amazing…

Take care and hope to see you around town.

Donna

So if you are around and feel like lending a hand, swing on down to St Peters’ Square at 8:00AM April 4th and have at it.
