Our Friend Marty, Special in Many Ways!

It's always good to see Marty and his wife Barbara. We are former New Yorkers, born and raised in the Manhattan area, lived in upstate NY, and ended up here in paradiise: Cape Ann. But a love of photography is the the glue of the friendship between Marty and I. Every day ar 5 pm, I eagerly view his posts on Good Morning Gloucester.

Aran Patrican Friendship Hockey Skate fundraiser, Friday, June 1

JD Perry writes-

Hi Joe,

Just a quick note to let you know that I got together with a bunch of buddies, including Paul "Vuda" Genovese, Barry Clifford, Rob Bouchie, Jimmy Marr and Rusty Harnish to put together the first annual hockey fund-raising event in memory of Aran Patrican, who tragically passed away from a heart infection this past January, and to benefit his son Thomas Gomes Patrican.  Our goal, because this was put together so quickly, was to get this established in 2012 then build upon it in successive years.  We will also be following this up with a golf outing fundraiser in August.

The schedule for tonight, June 1 is:

6:00 — JP vs. Old Timers
7:00 — Diggers vs. Doc Twombly’s Monday Night Crew
8:00 — Tony Frontiero’s team vs. Doc Twombly’s Monday Night Crew II

Thank you for all your help in getting the good word out to your readers about the strength of our community.  This is simply one example in a long line of so many that you have featured on your blog.

With kind regards,

JD Perry
