Happy New Year! The Massachusetts Cultural Council has reviewed the Downtown Gloucester cultural district application and let us know January 7, 2013 that we have “been moved to the next stage of the application process which is an MCC site visit”. We are sharing this good news and readying for the site visit at the end of February! The MCC will spend a day downtown in roundtable discussions, big walk around touring all-over, lunch, fun stops. Let’s do this Downtown!
